Addiction LXXVIII

Notices
Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

eBay has quite a few in the $70-$100 range. Seems like the path of least resistance if flushing doesn't work. You should be able to swap one out without even needing to remove bar tape.

However:

As a regular Addiction poster, I am required by Addiction bylaws to recommend you look into the Cervelo closeouts on excelsports.com and pick out the R series of your choice.
Um.

Some things just don't need to be said, they're just a given. Having a firm grasp of the obvious doesn't really set you apart.

WhyFi, I’m not wasting my time arguing over the Internet. Never have, never will. You can see what you want to see, believe what you want to believe and say what you want to say, and I’ll do the same. Adios.

You've never had qualms about arguing - you were just arguing with LAJ. You just don't like it when people argue back and you're on shaky ground. Adios, indeed.

For those having problems, check the multi-quote box for every post *except* the last one that you'd like to quote - you simply hit the "quote" on that one and you should be good to go.
That's what I do. No dice.

It is possible the shifters just need to be cleaned up. I've "fixed" quite a few STI shifters by chucking them in a parts washer and relubing them. Or, a quick hit with some spray cleaner/lube like One-Step.

I'm talking about shifting to the smaller gears after you've climbed the hill.
When was the last time you put new cable and housing on the bike?

I wonder if the multi-quote issue is browser-related; will investigate later.

I venture out to pick up a few items because I don’t want to shop over the weekend. My Costco has been playing fast and loose with their hours; one never knows for sure when they are opening or closing and their local website is totally wrong. Said they were closing at 8:30 and they actually closed at 6:30 last night. Supposed to open at 9:00 and actual time this morning is 10:00. When I got there at 9:15, there were many people sitting in cars as confused as myself.

Tooled over to Aldis and probably 40% were wearing masks. I just picked up a couple things and bolted for home.

Will try again on Monday.

I have tried multi-quote in IE 11 and Edge. Does not work in either.

Frankly, weekends don't seem to matter these days - it's all the same. I went to Costco last Saturday at lunch time, something that I would normally avoid, 'cause it's usually a zoo, and it wasn't busy at all. And while I can't help you with the store hours being wonky, I stand by my earlier recommendation - check google maps for live busyness levels before leaving the house.

They really don't and everyone I work with works weekends anyway, so the work flow continues almost unabated. It feels like a little taste of (semi) retirement and I like it.

Ours now allows only 2 people per card to enter the store and our local Menards has banned children.

The last time I used silicone spray lube and the shifters worked great after that. Turn the bike upside down and spray into the shifter at the base of the lever.
