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

Not as tempting as that R5Disc, honestly.

Too bad it's so ugly.....

However, for a similar cost, I'd much rather have one of these: Factor O2 Disc or Rim
Hopefully they'll carry it soon.

After growing tired of my girl fawning over Paw Patrol and Daniel Tiger, I got her hooked on a great, "new" show - Reading Rainbow.

She totally loves it and I feel better about plopping her in front of RR and LeVar when I need a little time to take care of something.

The instrument is at atmospheric pressure on the inside, and the only real airflow that moves through is a byproduct of the moving air required to create the initial vibration with your lips. The valves just change the length of the tube that the sound waves travel through, with each valve combination tuned to resonate at a specific frequency. Most brass instruments I've tried are quite free-blowing, there is some resistance but not a whole lot. The smaller the ID of the tubes, the more resistance there is. Try blowing through a straw vs blowing through a paper towel tube.

I have played both trumpet and tuba. The tuba does require a bit more airflow, but that just seems to be a necessary consequence of the amount of air it takes to vibrate your lips at frequencies that the tuba is designed to resonate at. If you want to try a silly experiment, try to buzz your lips at a high frequency and then at a very low and floppy frequency. I think you'll find that the latter will exhaust your lungs a lot faster than the former.

TL;DR - You just make the air inside the horn vibrate from buzzing your lips, any air movement through the horn is a necessary byproduct of that.
I've played trumpet, trombone, and didgeridoo. Never could figure out the didgeridoo. I damn near passed out trying to figure out all 3. I remember trying to emulate The Dizz on the brass, but that didn't seem to help.

Sell off 8 of those rim brake wheelsets, and you'll have the money(and space) for that frameset.

I was a little old for Reading Rainbow, but I'd still watch it everyday after highschool, mainly waiting for Bob Ross to come on though.

My buddy has a Dogma, and it really seems to just go. I haven't ridden the R5, but a teammate has the Factor. I liked the ride of the Dogma, but that was only a 15-20 minute ride, on each of them.

On my way into work today, the Saturn was acting funny. The power was obviously stuttering. Initially I was askeered the clutch was going, but I saw the check engine light was flashing intermittently so I am guessing there is some moisture in the ignition system that is causing the problem (it was wet out there). I have the car at the shop, fingers crossed it's an easy and simple fix.

There's a size 56 "Canyon Aeroad CF SLX" frameset for $400 on the local marketplace...

To be fair to the person selling it, they are describing it explicitly as a "Chinese CF frameset with Canyon paintjob".

"They" say the cat starts sintering within minutes, but you don't know it, because it starts from the center out. Many cars have a strategy that will shut off fuel to the offending cylinder, which will actually save the cat. God Save the Cat is the mantra of the OE's, at least for 8 years, and 80,000 miles. PZEV cars and the like, have an even longer emission component warranty.

Ahhh so that's the answer I'm looking for, you're not actually pushing all the stagnant air all the way through. I think I got it, now I understand Vol's answer.

There's no quiz though is it, I need to maintain my Dean's List status.
