Thinking back on the history of these pedals, they were bought new in 2007 or so, then I used them on the Battaglin for 13 years. It was always my go-to bike, the one I would ride at my heaviest. Maybe 10,000 miles on them? Then another 1760 on the Canyon.

So I ordered 2 pair of Look Keo Classic 3s from PBK. As luck would have it, I now have 2 pairs of cycling shoes, so I'll just have to decide which shoes will go with which bikes.

Funny thing is, when the pedal broke off my first thought was to swap on another pair of pedals from another bike and complete the ride. I probably would have been fine, but discretion is the better part of valor.

Great, something else to add to the list of terrible things that can happen while riding a bike.

I'm still using Delta Looks. Some time ago a friend gave me two pair of the Jalabert signature pedals. One pair was new and the other near new. The latch part wore out on the first set and now the surface of the pedals on the second set is worn almost to the point of exposing the axle.
I found another nice set on e-bay.

Time to ride. I am on call this weekend, and it's quite likely I will get paged during the ride. I will start out with a small group of friends, but will drop myself to answer the pager and finish the ride solo.

Not continuously. I also did some quick, on-the-spot repairs, sold a bike, and had various other customer interactions. Aka, typical day at the shop.

That being said, one of the orders was fairly large.

I've snapped a pedal axle.

I'm 5 weeks in to a strained wrist/broken bone(s)

How quick could anything be at a not-serious business?

I got up just in time for the 24 Hours of Spa start.

Spa, Belgium weather report: overcast. Same here, but it's just a little hotter here.

LesterOfPuppets 07-31-21 09:56 AM

Oooh, raining in Spa now

Many cars are spinning, then trying to scoot into the pits for tyres right quick

So, Same as it ever was? I remember reading decades ago what a problem it is for racers when rain is not absolutely an all-day thing - it starts raining, and if you pit to change to race tires but the rain stops, you're at a disadvantage and will have to pit again to put on slicks. If you stay on slicks and the rain stops, you gain on the people who switched tires by not having to pit twice, plus you're on better tires in the dry. But if the rain DOESN'T stop and you're on slicks you'll probably crash.

Clearly, a problem they haven't solved.

LesterOfPuppets 07-31-21 10:17 AM

Yep, one of the cars that stayed on slicks has lost 15 positions so far

We don't know that. It might be collecting dust in the corner.

Yep. There are a lot of turtles in their enclosure and scores of free roaming birds, including guinea fowl.

I think they also only mate in water.
