That's the thing, the video I saw had a medium size group of 8 or 9 riders doing a fairly tight paceline with these things on. :twitchy:

Turns out, the L bibs have SIGNIFICANTLY shorter legs. So short, in fact, that I cannot wear them to ride outside. Think "women's shorts" length. They're relegated to Zwfting. This is too bad, because otherwise they fit fine and do a good job keeping everything in place.

Went bike shopping on the way home though, and got to ride an Emonda Di2 in my size, but it was last years model with 11 speed. Sold on the e-shift! Problem is the new ones are showing December delivery dates. ☹️ The other problem is getting spousal approval. ☹️

But your spouse doesn't work(for the man). Easy peasy.
Edit: I only quoted Mojo1. Gj snuck in on his own.

Well, she doesnít work at all, but I like what she brings to the table, so there is that.

Ah. Similar symptoms, different etiology.

Team Time Trialing on gravel? Sounds iffy.

That was basically what LBS suggested, but basically he said, "That CAN work".

But it wasn't the BB anyway. Oh, well.

Fixed a creaky FS mountain bike yesterday too. It was the pedals.

I'm hoping I'm right about the seatpost. It's the only thing that I really changed since last fall when it wasn't all creaky.

Actually, the BB replacement was because of a creak. The customer said the BB seemed "gravel-y". Turns out there was actual gravel in the frame and the dirt had been working it's way into the bearings. It was not pretty.

You ask questions that were answered eight hours beforehand.

I got a couple more of these today. Now I'm set for every-other-day dishwashing schedule, and can get my nightly supplement in.

Elaborate.

I could use one or two of those. I usually use my Boston shaker. :D

Not completely clear what drives that correlation, but muscle, bone etc. loss is a major component of frailty in the elderly and frail people die. If you want to be a robust 80 year old, you better be a strapping 50 year old.
