Anyway, a guy on the WWing forum put this together as a solution, though he doesn't even have the table to try it out for himself - https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4113223/files. I'm going to send the file over to my brother so that he can print it off for me sometime.

You should definitely hear a big pop when they seat, but check the witness line so the way around the tire; they should not unseat with a loss in pressure.

And get a syringe or at least use the Orange Seal tube - I can only imagine the mess of seating a tire with sealant already in it.

The Hutches were easy enough that it wasn't even messy. Ugh.

Did you try to figure out the right width? I tried measuring yesterday, I may do again to see if correct.

take 2 layers of cardboard. Place onto a hard surface. Sit on the cardboard. Rub cardboard with crayon or chalk.. 2 dimples will show up in the cardboard. Measure center to center,, add 10mm. That's your sit bone width

I have the plate that was in my ankle and 10 of the 11 screws. One is still in my leg.

I guess there's the expectation that patients wear masks now. Many (but not all) of the people in the building were wearing them. But I don't have a mask so I was a rebel.

Oh boy.

I moved the strava club to Embarass, MN.

Kinda fitting with what strava's gone and done today.

But only that one, because it wouldn't allow the location my 10yo picked, 'Pee Pee, Ohio'.

Yup. Also, the bike industry is generally counter-cyclical.

I've done it both ways. No mess.

But not counter-seasonal.

But not the saddle size.

Nice. There's also Lizard Lick, NC.

I also actually killed off my account. It'll be interesting to see what happens here.

Well, we're in the season.

Tell that to Bah Humbug.

I'm just not going to treat seating as a given, 'specially with a new tire and/or new tire/rim combo. Going through the stem is so easy that I don't see any incentive to pouring in and there's a lot potential for downside.

Why is that? Surely people don't sell their autos and buy bicycles to get around.

Some of that may be due to supply shock from factory shut downs.

Bike racks at Walmart are sparsely populated.

I read some of the factories are starting limited production. It was not specific about which ones.

People choose relatively less expensive pastimes during hard times.

Totally. There are supply chain issues in Asia. It's going to take a while for component deliveries to sync up with frame production and assembly.
