oof. That's rough. Sympathies for your step-daughter. Hopefully they were squared away before he died.

That bike needs one of these. Would probably drag on the front tyre though :)

Just hang it on the seat. Plenty of room.

I have a live feed of Vuelta al Pais Vasco sans commentary. It's the GCN feed that GCN is not allowed to broadcast into my country. It's a start. And more importantly, it's still weeks out from the Giro.

Thanks. They were, She left Florida last week, for her home in Ohio, and was planning to go back later this month.

I have that bag in that color, with a blood stain on it. I leaned into a curve with loose sand in it.

Looks awesome. If the main color was blue, the paint scheme would be almost identical to my cervelo.

still sick. made an appointment with the doctor today, made me do it via teleconference because of the chance itís covid. Got prescribed Z pack and a steroid but iím waiting to hear back from my aviation doctor to know if I can take the steroid.

My wife now has a stomach flu. She was throwing up all night last night and canít keep anything down.

I really hope I am better by thursday so I donít miss anymore work, but realistically I donít think that is going to happen. Will have to call the chief tomorrow to let him no whatís going on.

Im at a loss. I donít remember the last time I was sick but I donít think I have ever been sick this long.


Yesterday I felt okay but my head was still super congested and the cough was really bad. Today the fatigue came back.

Ugggh. Hope you all get well soon.

Registered in Wilmington Delaware, home of the Concord Raiders. Wonder if that ship has ever been there.

Well it's a treat to be watching live cycling again. It's been a couple years or so. Unfortunately, I have to put it down and go to the city before it gets too hot. Tomorrow though. And I now have English commentary!

Thanks guys. The orange color didn't photograph well in the bright sunlight. It really lit up much more than expected.
I'll ditch the Cannondale duffle bag for something smaller after I get it sorted and don't need to carry so much crap. ;)

I broke my ******g chain again this AM. Itís in the trash, my irritation is high.

This chain has broken at three different links. Iím not really sure wtf is up with it, hopefully itís just the chain and not a bigger issue.

Maybe it was a counterfeit chain?

Could be- not sure if this is the one that came on the bike or one I bought.

Im wondering if I have a bent cassette tooth someplace.

I think itís his quadzilla like power he is throwing down.

Thankfully I donít have to worry about that problem.

Does it shift weird on any one cassette? I would think a bent tooth would cause the chain to make noise or something.

No- thatís whatís really odd. It runs quietly on every cog. I get some creaking on the small ring under. Lot of load, but I think that may be the BB

No matter what you find the cause to be, I'd stick with "overloaded the chain's capacity for power input" as the cause.

No, Iíd honestly welcome a week or two of flu-like symptoms off work. Just work stuff and lots of stress there.
