Got up at 5, itís raining, it never stops here lately and Iím tired of riding on wet roads in the heat after it rains.

last night it was so thick I had to take my sunglasses off due to constant condensation

Many, many years ago, we had a half manx. He was huge, too.

Oh, the R3 is coming up on a year and Iíll probably want to replace the derailleur cables later this summer. Maybe the whole fishing thing is unnecessary; do the housings run through the frame?

If not, do you attach the floss to the old cable and pull it back through as a ďmessenger?Ē

No, just to the stops where it enters the DT.

Yeah, that's what I did when I re-cabled the Domane, should be similarly easy with the R3; it's a pretty short, direct run to the bottom of the BB - just pop out the cable routing insert. The second run for the RD was a little more tricky to fish if you started at the BB, but easy if you start from the RD, so take that approach if you lose your lead for any reason.

Two rounds of storms hit Wednesday. Lots of thunder and lightning close by. Fortunately, this was not my campsite.

Fortunately.
Today would have marked the official end of my tour.

Thanks. Just looked this up and sliding housing liner over the entire length of the old cable looks like the easiest option.

You can go around and torque things up to spec, I suppose. Some here would suggest you ultrasound the frame for cracks.

A local triathlete has a nice piece of Cervelo wall art this week. Head tube crack. No ultrasound needed.

If you have your coffee and muffin levels set, then time of day doesn't matter.

You canít really tell, but there was more than 2Ē in places. The second cell lasted about an hour, with moderate to very heavy rain. And to think, that soil is relatively porous.

I went on a short little night ride yesterday evening. Beautiful night - warm, calm, and clear skies with a full moon. Zero traffic, so when I got out of town I turned my front light off and just rode by moonlight. Lovely.

Very happy to report that the new wheels did not asplode underneath me

LAJ 07-03-20 07:49 AM

I use this stuff. https://www.amazon.com/Jagwire-reves..._t1_B07H2WGXP8

Pull the brake or derailleur housing off, slide this over the old cable cut to length obviously, pull the old cable out, slide the new cable through, pull this housing off.

That just looks like it's no fun at all.

An insult to the Pinarellos, right? :D

If it makes you feel any better, I thought that Cervelo was an Italian brand until just a few months ago :o

I've loaded up my gear (this is a self-supported trip) and am ready to roll.

Time to tour.
