Addiction LXXVI

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

Big problem here, too.

I volunteered to be consult attending over the Xmas week (because it's short and light), but that should be an orgy of sweet glop too.

It's ok if you get these two confused, even physicians do sometimes.
Even I did.

VITTORIA CORSA G+ CLINCHER GRAPHENE ROAD TIRE

Anybody here ever use these? They are priced at under $30 at ProBikeKit.

Also, what happened to all the gp4ks2? They went on closeout and disappeared completely. I bought one pair, on closeout, and have yet to mount them.

I run those as my crit tires. I don't think they're robust enough to run as a daily driver.
