I feel that way about TT bikes a lot, and I'd probably be less useful on one than you would be :)

Every time I see this one on the local marketplace, I think I should buy it for a minute or two, before I come to my senses.

Correct. Current wheelset on my Holdsworth is black hubs, black spokes, black nipples, and polished silver rim & brake track. I mounted some gumwalls temporarily and confirmed that it would look absolutely terrible.

I’m going to give them a try, but I’m buying from a vendor that will accept returns. Rims, hubs and spokes are black, but nips are silver. Brakes are disc. We’ll see.

Same here, supposed to clear and be really warm later, but with winds in the 20s. May sneak out or may rest, TBD

With the (relative) warmth and rain yesterday, I thought that I might be close to outdoor road riding.

Woke up to 4-6" of fresh snow. :notamused:

Also, I think that Velo Vol is hanging his head in shame because of his intel failings -

There are a ton of intriguing things about this bike.

Mine in this cool blue, please.

Two things I’m curious about in the LeMond -

How will the expanding foam in the tubes going to impact the internal routed wires and hoses?

If the BB threads are molded into the carbon fiber, how is that going to hold up? My experience tapping into CF is that the threads are fairly fragile, and you don’t want too much load on them.

After 25 years of such, a young chiropractor gave me the elixir. Don't ever lift and twist at the same time. Lift. Full stop. Then twist. I have not been fully pain free, continuously, since then, but it made an enormous difference. YMMV

I didn't have any large vet bills last year.
