Could have had my second straight 2, but I rushed it.

I blew it. I had two choices for try 3 and picked the more obscure. Silly me.

I am a direct descendent on my mother's side to the Irish clan O'DOCHARTAIGH.

And, I own no green clothing except a cycling Jersey.

But I did get a pic of a Ferrari 308 GTB, entirely by accident. I was trying to catch the light from the sunset creeping up the hills opposite me, and took the pic. Only later did I see the car.

Still locked out.

As I sit here I am still tormented by upgradeitis. I can get shifters for $450.00 and cassettes aren't horribly expensive. I could make the 2009 Tarmac 11 speed. Manual. But still it would be 11 speed.... Why am I not satisfied with 10 speed?
Is being able to say" this one goes to 11" that important? It must be....

I shall imbibe in your honor sir, never fear!

Not Irish. My wife is partly Irish, but the wrong color (orange, not green).

Six speed for the win. It's the true sweet spot.

Green is my favorite color, but I don't have much green clothing

Depends if the available cassettes for 11-speed are an improvement for your usage. They're not always...

LAJ 03-17-22 08:15 AM

I'm not sure what one more speed would do for me. When it's time, a front and rear derailleur would all I'd need for the Focus, and then I'd just make the TT bike electrical.

Could be. I have no basis of comparison. I will have to suffer with my perception of awesome. Or for a monetary consideration I could be persuaded to alter my description to absolutely fantastic, but the sum would be sizable
