abshipp 01-14-22 02:06 PM

Feeling basically back to normal. Just a tiny bit of a headache and bored as hell being in my house.

My spouse is feeling the same, except they seem to have lost some sense of taste :(

Still no results for either of us.

Are you sure that's a new development? They did marry you, after all.

What brand of links? Some of them say single use only, what's up with that? I have one to carry on the mtb and it doesn't say that on the package. It's a SRAM.

I just ignore the "single use only" part. But I'm an old man who rides like an old man.

As usual, I blame Big Bicycle.

And you consumer guys. :roflmao2:

Sad.

100 times out of 100 I’ll take the dirt road

I don't necessarily agree, as it's set up for KOPS, more-or-less.

However, he may have a point. I notice that most other cyclists ride with the edge of their butt more-or-less even with the back of their saddle. For whatever reason, I am more comfortable sitting on my saddle and the edge of my backside is 1-2 cm PAST the edge of the saddle.

I don't see my position/setup as a problem since it's comfortable for me, but anyone have any comments?

I’d venture a guess that you know what’s best.

I'm an 85% guy.

Estaba un hilo en C&V hace algunos años. El OP escribió en español. Yo respondí, y algunos otros. El moderador dijo que no es legal decir en español en este foro. Y le cerró el hilo.

That's cold. I didn't know you had it in you.:p

I agree 100%.

¿Tal vez moverán el hilo a Trollheim?

I am too, but I'll eat any high quality chocolate.

Having two vastly improves chances that at least one of them runs and drives at any given moment.

My experience with those things is that they usually run but they suck to work on. I usually got them for spark plugs which is a pure joy.

Sometimes you've got to pick the low hanging fruit before someone else gets to it first ;)

After listening to the forumites, I went to the KMC site and it turns out they have a connector for 10 speed Campagnolo and it says reusable, so I ordered a pair.
I'm an old man, too, but I am creeping back to 200 pounds for some unknown reason.

Just catching up:

My Colnago came with a Prologo short nose saddle and I really like the short front. I've used Spec. Toupes since the 2-oughts but I really love this one, YMMV

As for chocolate, I was allergic as a child with hives, vomiting, etc. After puberty, I no longer get hives but I still sick if I eat dark chocolate. Milk chocolate is all I can handle.

Dallas, I'm betting that your saddle fit is fine for you.

On the home front, I'm stuck at home waiting for a DHL delivery that requires a signature. Hate that.

Waited for FedEx all day -- signature required delivery. The "Home Delivery" guy pulls into the driveway and, as I'm walking down the driveway, he takes off without delivering any packages. :notamused:

I admire the girls who can crush me. Especially when they're nice.

Dang, that's frigging cold.

At least DHL gave me a delivery window. 8 am until whenever we get there. :rolleyes:

The contractor that FedEx uses for "Home Delivery" around here is fairly unreliable.

I know her. She's a true badass, and has been for decades. She also lives about 3 blocks from me

Try Viagra.


Seriously, hope you both get over it quickly.

Moderna #3 uploaded. I'm hoping it comes with some of the Zwift power-ups.

Well, at least you now know what the test result will be.

I was tempted to take mine in when it needed plugs and I did the front bank, then rotated the engine and tried to get a socket on one in the rear bank, Uggh. But I figured what the hell, I can figure this out, I'll just make sure I have all day. It wasn't too bad once I got used to the location and the funky angle of the plugs.

Still 13 more days 'til I'm due for mine.
