You should see your doctor about that head injury.

We've got quite a few Times at the shop right now. They're really nice, but primarily painted in reds and whites :(

The grey Alp d'Huez my colleague is building at the moment is gorgeous though :love:

I wanted the Time RXR and then the RXRS. There was a guy on here from Singapore that had one and it was beautiful. I was so close so many times with R&A, but the overall report was the front end was a bit noodly. The original owner of Pro Peloton had one and confirmed that, but he was a big guy. I was conflicted.

Then I went WW and bought the R3SL. After that bike was finally built, I considered the RXRS again. Scared about the front end, I bought the TMR01 instead. The BMC is stiff as hell. Looking back five years later, I made the right call. My stable is still full. I need no more bikes.

It's not an injury.

Campy ergos and shifting are superior to Di2 and thus, EPS > Di2. Hoods are too big and shifting isn't crispy nice.

Wired Skullcandy earbuds for $10 run through the back of your t-shirt and into your pocket. Problem solved.

Our RV mobile service guy felt sick and cancelled his Friday appointments, including ours. He was in bed all day Friday. He rescheduled the appointments for Saturday and I was the first one. He called me when he was about to leave and I asked him if he had been tested. He said no, but was feeling better. We discussed the difficulty of running a business and making money versus the health of the community and his clients. I told him I have an unvaccinated kid and a football game on Sunday.

He did the right thing and got a test, cancelled the Saturday appointments, and went home. He tested positive on Monday.

I thought your head hurt in the area of your headphones. Like pressure. If you have brain issues, that's your problem. Consult the witch doctor and search for some beetroot.

As simple as that. Beets solve a lot of problems.

Use your brain, Velo Vol.

There's also something going on in my right calf. Like a cramp/knot in it. Most of the time (walking around the house) it's mild. But it gets worse when I do a brisk walk.

This has been going on for weeks. Not sure what to do about it. Stretches?

Not headphones, ear protection when operating noisy machinery.

I have consulted the witch doctor because I'm suspicious the lightheadedness comes from the hefty dosage of mouse drug I'm taking. He didn't give a very satisfactory answer for that. So, still TBD.

I kept looking at that/those too. Cool bikes, but nothing that I didn't already have. A Time in the garage would be cool, but no cooler than a November.
