Time to walk Roscoe and drift off to sleep basking in the glory of another successful day capped off by a Pirate victory.

Weightier than a flute perhaps. Try carting around a drum kit.

Drum kits are bulky, but don’t weigh a lot. An 8x10 bass cabinet and tube amp is a beast to move anywhere…but damn they are fun to stand in front of on a stage. 🤘

No one can remember. We all need Prevagen.

Lucky for you. We are in a rain pattern, again.

After 5 days of temps topping out at 70 and requiring a jacket in the evening, I'm back to 100 degrees. :(

rjones28 and anyone else: If I increase a crankset from 48/32 to 50/34, will a longer chain be required?

I bet you don't need reminded to pre-hydrate.

Apparently I'm not smarter than the average bear because I'm not following. :foo:

I think he means you must be stronger if you are going to bigger gears.
And yes, probably need a longer chain but it depends.

Correct.

Have a chance to get a a 9-speed 50/34 crank for my Sirrus for cheap, which would make the gearing closer to that on my Domane. It would make both 50/34 on front and 11/34 on back, albeit 9 speed versus 11 speed.

And, no super human strength. Just an old fat guy who is not in the best shape, unfortunately.

If your chain isn't at least a link longer than the shortest it absolutely has to be, yes.

Chances are somewhat decent that it's long enough already.

Put it in the big/big, then push the bottom of the derailleur cage forward to see if the lower pivot of the rear derailer still had a little room to rotate forward. The more room it has before the stop, the better the chances everything will be just fine with existing chain.
