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

I think his time already been beaten.

A slower time was recorded by a guy on a fixie, but that's a little tougher than running gears or even SS.

I let her know that if there was a black female in there, we probably would be interested. We were informed that "Blondie" had not had a black female in her line, that she knew of, but there were some there in past generations. Expectations were low, but alas... A black male and female out of the five. Crazy. Meant to be. Don't know. Every one we get is unique, and no single one replaces any other single one, they just get added to the space, and add to the joy they've all brought. I will say, losing my shadow was very hard, and you all get it. She was just always around, wherever I went, yet never on me. That part is tough.

Either way. End of June it is.



What Mrs. LAJ thinks she's named after.....



But, I like this one better.

Nice. My Dad had a Europa BITD.

Now YouTube is recommending cycling lectures to me.

Will this talk improve my average speed?

If I everest the hill outside my house, I wonder how many days it would take to reach FL 600?

It'll definitely improve the odds.

Basically, I mist the tire beads all the way around, on both sides. Pinch and wiggle the tire, side-to-side, all the way around - you're making sure that the beads are in the channel and that the beads/rim are slippery enough to pop up on to the shoulders when you hit it with air.

Another thing that might help, if you haven't done it already, is to remove the valve core - having it in there can hinder volume.


All that said, I'd still get an air blaster of some kind. It just makes life easier, though I can understand not wanting to pick one up until you're a little further down the road with your revisit to tubeless.

I use a pancake air compressor to seat tubeless tires. Only ever had a problem with just one Schwalbe Pro One. Don't know why but my LBS blasted it on for me.

I’m not in the mood to ride but my wife says she wants to. I guess it’s time to load the bikes.
