I have a better idea. Compile a long list of random words, and filter them on a rotating basis.

What I want to know is, who was dumb enough to buy in at the indicated point? Or, "Never try to catch a falling knife."

It really does rub my fur the wrong way. Perhaps I should seek professional help.

I get that... but getting the occasional booster seems like the easiest, least exhausting mitigation. I'm fine with masks, but the booster is easier than a mask. It's easier than distancing. It's easier than not flying. Many of us just got flu shots every year anyway; this isn't really different. At least, to me.

Then I'll start calling it the sensor. Go ahead and filter that; I have many many words. :D

Beginning to think I might be lubing my chain wrong. After cleaning the chain spotless using a pain brush and and a degreaser I then apply my lube to each and every chain link. I run the chain backwards a couple of rotations and then I wipe away access. In the past I would just run the chain through a cloth, but that always seemed to leave to much, so I started to rub the towel over the links. This would leave them clean to the touch.

So I rode the cervelo 2 days in the rain. After each ride I wiped the bike completely down and wiped the chain down.

I was just inspecting the bike for tomorrow and noticed a small amount of rust on my chain. I ran my hand over the chain and nothing came off, seemed completly dry.

I checked my other bikes which I have cleaned and lubed the same way and they were all completely dry as well. Nothing comes off on my finger.


I think when I wipe away access I am wiping a little too aggressively and taking away a little too much lube.

Thoughts?

Disagree. They are running pretty even.

Humbug is experiencing heat deliriums. Either that or he put the wrong type of mushrooms on his steak.

Tennessee has a functional grid. Texas does not. What does Tennessee have that's that dumb?

I saw today that the 12 speed Ultegra Di2 disc groupsets are now available and in stock for about $2600. Worth it over R7000 105?

The State Capitol (as seen during the Civil War).

Nobody answered my lube question, this question better be ignored.












Will the weight savings help you complete more strava challenges?

You already know the answer. A little more saved you the sight of rust on a chain.
