The Canyon's got a 52/36 with a 11-34 cassette, so the range in either chainring is so broad I am often surprised to find myself running out of big gears on a descent, or small gears on a climb, and I look down and I'm in the wrong chainring.

He didn't cheap out on the seats though! Even drove into the big city.

Must be his anniversary or something.

Whenever we watch anything, AG picks a blonde woman to say "she's not even that attractive".

I, of course, don't argue, but it's been quite a distinct pattern. And out of the blue, not like I'm talking about them or their looks...

Oh, but she is, right? Simply because blonde. 😜

We’ve finally reached the point where I can comment that a woman is attractive without fear of having to call a divorce lawyer or having to buy flowers.

I don't even think it needs to be commented on. Our dinner show right now is Food Network Star 7 (the one Jeff Mauro wins) (no spoiler complaints people, it's old enough it's in SD and a great test of the Z9J upscaling). One contestant is a blonde pretty model. AG just can't not bring it up. I don't know if it's looking down on blondes or insecurity about not being one herself, but I'm not prying.

No benefit to you saying anything. Just agree and pretend not to pay attention to the blonde.

My mechanic is pretty confident he can rig it to work. Said he did something similar before.
They also have the full R7000 group with 175mm arms. Only asking 20.00 more than merlin.

How long did that take? Trying to figure out how many more years I will have to endure.

We've both been able to mention who is attractive, throughout.

Good luck, it’s a moving target. And, don’t forget, what was okay yesterday may not be okay tomorrow.

Yeah, I read an article after you posted that. He died in bed a few days after winning his National title.

pulled a staple out of my rear tire (GP 5000S TR, 30mm, tubeless) and while there was no immediate PSHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH it was fully deflated when i came back to it this evening. about 800 miles on it.

spun it around a few times, pumped it up to 40psi... tiny little dot of sealant at the staple location. waited an hour. still at 40 ish. spun it some more, pumped up to 70psi. holding steady. LOVING ROAD TUBELESS at the moment. would otherwise be f'ng around with tire levers and tubes at the moment, wondering if i'd have a ride in the morning or not! fingers crossed, knock wood.
