Learn the big and little chain ring when you have time to absorb what's actually happening. Experiment. See what happens when you swap gears and chain rings at the same speed. Just stuff....


Prolly right, the spacing just bothered me this morning.

I have found it hard to find good, traditional, Cantonese-American food since about 1974.

2 a month or I guess one every three weeks is more realistic.

There, there.

Also six Canadian geese by the pond near Brown Squirrel. DougRNS

Use it in health and contentment. We have a polycarbonate French press on the boat. One of lifeís essentials.

Iíve been using one during tours for years. The inner wall of my current one cracked. Itís happened before. I think because I sometimes make the water too hot.

Its 50/34. The cross chaining I am referring too, When I am on the big ring it seems that I am favoring the larger side of the cassette. Number 5 through 9 when I am on the smaller chain ring I almost always end up on the smallest cassette.

You could start a gear thread in the 41, those go for multiple pages. I think there were 2 going at the same time recently.

I know my rings and I know my small and large cogs and that's about it. I don't know what the other cogs are and I never looked at them. I also never think about what cog I'm in while riding except when I'm in the lowest one. Sometimes I force the shifter to make sure it's all the way at the end.

I've had everything from 5 speed to 11, triples to one by, and I always go by feel.

If ours broke, I would get a double-walled steel one, but I have already epoxied the handle and now it will last until I drop it overboard while dumping grounds on a morning when I don’t feel like diving in after it.

Iím actually surprised I havenít been able to find other options for a combination French press/mug that is portable. Iím talking something you make the coffee in and drink straight from it. I had one from REI, but the lid broke. There is at least one titanium press out there, but you canít drink from it. I want something that is going to keep the coffee hot when itís cold in the morning.

I had one back in the 70s. Best vehicle I've ever owned. Mine was orange with diamond tuck interior. Kick down 3 speed transmission was the schizz

A guy I knew had a Ford panel truck like this for sale before I had a car. I wanted it so bad but my father wouldn't allow it because it didn't run. My second car was an International Harvester panel truck.

Another sign the season formerly known as summer is done and gone: I saw a guy harvesting berries by the road.

Pumpkin spice is right around the corner.

It was, by the way, thoroughly rusted.
