Got it in 6!

That's right - it took ALL my guesses to get it. But I did.

How long did it take you?

See immediately above. I got it in 4. Took me about 5 minutes.

I spent a good 10 minutes on today's. I had a lot of things to consider, trying to get it in two guesses! Maybe next time :)

I don't know anything about a cheat site, so, let's go with lucky. ;)

I searched "Wordle" on Yahoo and several of the first results to appear have the answer to today's game right there.

Put it in your favorites bar and go straight to it.

After yesterday's really fun ride on the Litespeed with the newly re-tuned Frankengruppo, I realize that since I'm not going to be riding outside before all the bits are in place to rebuild it with the Dura Ace kit, the next obvious step is to strip it down. Which seems a shame, since I spent a not inconsiderable amount of time getting it looking good and working well.

But, guys.....

I mean, the 7410 crank is The Most Beautiful Crankset Ever, so how can I not?

I poked at it over the course of a few hours, interrupted by the events of the morning.

Almost. The Campy C-Record is more beautiful. Yours is the runner up.

Is that the last of the square-taper, or the start of Octa-link?

Close, but I prefer the more angular 7400 as far as DA cranks go. Same with the derailleurs.

As far as most beautiful, C-Record is elegant, but there's something about the Ofmega Mistral that just does it for me in a way no other crank ever will:

Especially the pista variety :love:

Had an awesome, rainy/snowy ride today. Finished clearing the driveway, had some lunch and hit the road.

Really tried to work hard and Intervals says my new FTP is 291 watts. 3.77 W/kg
Averaged 254 for a whopping 17.5 mph on the fat gravel tires.

De gustibus non est disputandum.

Personally, in Campagnolo, I prefer the late 90s/early 00s Record and Chorus.

Last square taper. 7700 was the first Octalink.
