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.

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.

There are not a few in these pics who are too fat for the sport.

Felicitaciones
I will go out on the bike for the first time in two weeks. Post-covid energy drain.

Mental therapy.

Slow is relative. Many would think an 8:45 pace is trucking

I was thinking bam's too TALL for this sport. I can't tell whether it's just that he's that much taller than the other riders of just has a higher riding position, but his helmet looks half a head higher than everyone else's.

Congrats! Glad to see you moving.

My legs are silly long, but my helmet doesnít fit right with my skull cap on. Always seems to sit higher, which is weird becuase the skull cap is a pretty tight fit.

I was thinking that. Like with more ordinary proportions you'd be like an inch or so shorter.

Its hard being a freak. It would be nice if my silly long legs came with godzilla like quads but that was too much to ask.

Yeah, normally I play for getting it in four or five by using three scanning words based on dictionary letter frequency, but I happened to get enough in the first two to have a good guess.

The large pallet is at least 2 feet taller than I am. And, I'm 6 foot.

Have yet to touch the back. Will have to get more. ☹️

17.76 km pedaling and 3 km walking. Keeping the circulation going.

I'm wanting to change out the cockpit a bit on my Holdsworth. Not a huge fan of the Cowchippers that are on there now.

What are everyone's thoughts on going to polished silver bars, stem, and possibly seatpost? I want a little more silver on here to balance things out but I'm not sure where to put it. The drillium chainrings will probably be leaving soon once I track down a R7000 or R8000 crank.

Polished stem, spacers and seatpost would look quite good. Bars are optional, though it sounds like you're changing them. The black post clamp and steer tube cap will look good with it all.

Yes, 1000 watts. 20 mph fully loaded. Maximum load 400 lbs. frame built like a tank. 125lbs. Uphill with the dog, no problem.
