New Bar tape, the color looked like it matched before it was wrapped. Not sure how I feel about it. Fixed the hoods and I raised the stem 5mm. Did a short test ride and Like how it felt, gunna go ride with my daughter to see how it feels. I was able to get the front de railed to shift correctly by following y’all’s guidance so thank you.


Quick question, When on the small chain ring and granny ring if I pedal backwards the chain wants to drop, if I pedal forward it doesn’t look like the chain is seated properly. It’s not affecting how it rides, but I don’t like noises.

Don't pedal backwards.

It takes somethin'... but I still sure as hell wouldn't wear the medal in public.

Saw a 20-something runner show up at a 10K race with the track medals he won in high school.

Personally, I wouldn't want a finisher's medal. I'd happily wear a finisher's t-shirt, but a medal would go to waste.

The derailleur and/or hanger could be bent inwards - that's a part of what caused my thrown chain, I think. Pedaling forward, that alignment might not be problematic much of the time, but pedaling backwards the chain is too far out of alignment for the teeth at the bottom of the chainring to engage.

Mid to late June can be nice. A bit cool at the summit, but nice.

If it was bent inwards would it only do this on one cog? I believe the hanger is steel and part of the frame. I havnt crashed it so I can’t imagine ifs bent out of the blue. Could it be an indexing issue?

It would be most likely to do it on the largest cog, since it's the furthest inward. Just put it in the front/rear combo that's giving you trouble and look at the alignment of the chain at the bottom of the chainring.

Yeah, I have loads of race shirts and hats from my mediocre running and sailing careers (none of my bike race swag survives) and I wear them. No medals.

Likely a small adjustment needed on the limit screw. I'd also check the chain for a stiff link.

How many times did you have it done? Over how long a period of time? Has it stopped totally?

big john 10-02-22 07:52 PM

I know you guys aren't drag racing fans but 338 mph in 1000 feet is pretty impressive.

I was told to do it 3 times a day, 3 repetitions per side (L & R) until it stopped. I think it was gone after 3 or 4 days. It is gone completely. You do it yourself on a bed. It takes 10 or 15 minutes each time so 30-45 minutes per day. Search YouTube for a visual demonstration.

Thanks !! How long has it been gone?

Could be "B" tension setting or chain wrong length.

Brittany Force makes FASTEST pass in Top Fuel history - YouTube

I grew up at drag strips.

I was a toddler when that picture was taken. But I was probably at the track that day.

Ooh, you can buy coffee out of a Citroen in Vancouver, USA now. Maybe I should move back there.

I also didn't know it would take them another 20 minutes after they'd got them this close to the gate

Aren't they usually called Cow Chips?

I had a check up one time and as the visit was almost over, the doc asked if I had any other concerns and I said my left knee was aching under the knee cap. He said, “Does your right knee hurt?” To which I replied, “No.”

He said, “Well, they’re the same age so I don’t think there’s a problem. See you next year.”

Wut? :foo:

I almost had the distance crown, but somebody got their panties in a wad and had to go out ride a few extra miles. :rolleyes:

I think I overheard something in the 6 hour range.

So mostly walked it then.
