Addiction LXXVII

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

Should I be concerned that the Tundra is about at the 6000lbs maximum working load for the 3 ton jacks?

These damn package delivery guys that don't even knock when they drop stuff off - they're a scourge.

Anyway, my Rapha stuff arrived.

The Core Bibs seem pretty nice and comfy, though the chamois wants to wedge in my ass when I'm standing. Maybe that'll tone down with a little use and washing.

I'm really liking the new Core Jersey - it's a little more stretchy/supple than the previous and the cut is slender but not restrictive and/or painted on. I might have to order another while the sale is still on (25% off, bringing them to $60).

No, at most you’re lifting only part of the vehicle at a time.

Agree. That’s why I gave up on the idea of social distance group rides. It does not work.

Only TV we really watch is sports and the news. Without sports and only bad news, the TV has mostly been off.

Until yesterday. I turned on A Football Life on ESPN and it was about TO, which was pretty interesting. Then came Chad Johnson. Then Steve Smith. We didn't get through Jerry Rice. It was late. My wife was totally into it.

The John Randall one is my favorite. He's was character, he balled, and he had a hell of a backstory.

I have a pair of Bellwether bibs that are a bit tight off the bike. They disappear once I start riding though

not unless you are lifting the entire truck from one point. Always, ALWAYS use the jack stands before going under. Never use the jack to work under the truck.

I'm also stimulating the economy. I took my own advice and ordered a pair of cross tires and a pair of tubes. Off road will soon be a possibility. Easy off-road. No single track or technical stuff; just the option of riding without flaunting.

one general tip for when the exact hub cone is not readily available. discovered that the curvature of the bearing surface on the shimano 600 was a pretty good "skeleton key" for many applications. it would sometimes require a small change in ball size to make everything come out correctly.

Okie dokie.

I'm pretty excited. I have been handwringing this purchase since the Tundra skid install. Addiction pushed me over the edge.

Yeah, these aren't bad; I've got another set of bibs that are worse off the bike but still fine on the bike, so not too concerned.
