Map of the day. 3D East Coast edition.

That shift in the US population center might be all Manhattan's fault :)

All of the DT Swiss rim brake rims are available in a 20 and 24 hole drillings. The R460 is a great bang-for-the-buck rim brake rim.

The only Archetypes that are in stock are either completely anodized black (even the brake track) or polished silver. My front brake track is silver, so I would really want to replace both for aesthetic considerations. Part of me wants to do polished silver, but I'm not sure how great that would look with black hubs & spokes.

Given those things, R460 is my first choice since the published ERD are within 1mm of the Archetypes, and they're black with silver machined sidewall. I built some CX wheels with them years ago and was really impressed. Of course, the 24 hole is in stock but not the 20 :rolleyes:

Hmm.....that doesn't look too bad at all.

Wish I could see something like this mocked up on my Holdsworth with tanwall tires.

Those black anodized brake tracks don't stay black for long. If you want to speed up the process, go for some rides in the rain.

More people now live in the other boroughs and across the Hudson in places like Newark, Hoboken and Jersey City. Newark is the most densely populated city in the most densely populated state. A lot of former industrial areas of Hoboken and Jersey City are now residential.

FIFM :lol:

The real question is whether to replace F&R or just the rear. If I did just the rear then they would look mismatched until the rear track wears off.

Hard ride. I do believe I gave myself exercise induced hypoglycemia the last 20 minutes of the ride. I have not had this before but pretty sure I got it. I could pedal ok, but felt jittery/shaky and a bit dizzy/off balance. It was not pleasant, but I feel much better now.

Thus the steep descents in wet weather.

'Tale of Two Cities' in the books. I'm gonna do a change of authors now, and go back to Tolstoy. Anna Karenina. Looking forward to it.

Holy ****. Pack a lunch. That's a long hard read.

I saw a rider in a Marigold Jacket today.

If the diagnostic procedure determines my disc is bad, the rest of my life will be a choice of the least bad outcome. That sucks. I'll probably know by early December.

Life is pretty much always like that. “Perfect” is never a realistic choice.

VV - will Sark be looking for a new job after this season? Some talk of that around here.

Sounds unpleasant. Iím surprised youíre not happy as a clam in deep ketosis, with the distances you do!

Or hypothermia?

Usually I am. Luckily the jittery symptoms resolved with some food. All good!

Reminds me, I saw a rider in a bright pink Rapha jacket the other day.

Maybe one of your friends dosed your bottle.

Good thought, but I think not. I was plenty warm by the end of the ride. I am fairly sure it was my fault for not consuming enough carbs during the ride.

You should befriend that person - they're obviously cool.

Maybe. A sure thing if they can do the bidon flip.
