Mine have improved since retiring but I still get some hand pain.

Kinda freaked me out. The newest bike went dead first? Also lowest miles. Odd.

I cannot accept the bonus points as the top tube is actually sloping, its just the photo angle that makes it look horizontal.

It's a size 54.

I started getting wrist pain last summer and it came to a peak in the Fall. I really thought that I might have broken it at some point. I consulted an orthopedist who did his thing and deemed it tendonitis which makes sense since the back of my hand would burn at times.

Anyway, he showed me the x-ray and said I had remarkably little arthritis in my hand/fingers for a 70 year old.

Still don't know how I got tendonitis in my wrist/hand unless it was running a mouse in PC video games. :innocent:

How many miles, roughly? My eTap bike has over 10,000 miles and is 4 years old.

Edit: Changed battery this morning and the battery cover shows marks so I've obviously changed the battery before. Oh, well, better safe than sorry.

Feeling a little better today. The steroid really messed me up yesterday.

I hope the worst is over. Had to call out for my trip tomorrow unfortunately.


Plugged my xbox in yesterday for the first time in 4 years. Took 8 hours to update everything. Started Borderlands the pre sequel but lost interest really fast. Donít know how I used to spend hours playing these games.

bampilot06 04-07-22 06:24 AM

I wonder how much fitness I have lost these days. I havnt registered for the Crit May 1st, I am wondering if I should skip that one. I donít really want to but I think I will be weaker than the last race opposed to stronger.

Nah, don't skip it. Forge ahead.

It appears he was hit by a train while cycling in his hometown of Montclair, New Jersey. The 57 year old media critic and journalist, did not survive.

Right. There's a bit of time to prepare.

Have you ever heard of a cyclist being killed by a train?

Yeah, I managed to trace the creaking/clicking on two bikes to chainring bolts. Loose, not missing, though.

Getting a bolt was a severe ass pain. Hardware store was a no-go, went to 2 different shops. Itís pouring, so I wonít know until tomorrow but Iím going to try and repeat the action that caused the break. Regardless Iím going to stuff a spare chain in my bento box for my ďgravel raceĒ Saturday.

I was going to ride it on 28s, but since we got about an inch of rain overnight with more to come as well as rain all day Saturday, gonna run something bigger

No kept man status likely. ☹️

My wife hasnít worked in three years. She got tired of the nonsense in her C level job and decided she wanted a change- so she took the LSATs and was going to go to law school. Then COVID happened and completely screwed the timeline. She didnít want to do her 1L remotely, so she didnít go.

Sheís been putting feelers out there and will probably go back to work soon, just needs to find the right job.
