Speaking of projects and Bianchis. This frameset is calling out to me. It's about time I added an '80s MTB to the collection. I guess I should set up an eBay search for bullmoose bars right away.

And speaking of projects, I just pulled a Claud Butler out of the car---belongs to a friend of the wife's. It's a good thing I no longer have a camera(I apparently sat on it). I wouldn't know where to begin. Sad! It's here for a refurb. I don't know when to begin. Sad!!

You don't need to clean your chain? You don't need to clean your chainrings, cassette, or jockey wheels? You don't need to clean black smudges from fingers and calves when there's incidental contact? I've tried "occasional oiling of the chain" - it sucked.

Shockingly, it seems that we live in different conditions, ride bikes in different manners, and have different best fit solutions.

Shockingly true!
I have long considered that if I ever get a tattoo, it will be a half chainring print on the inside of my right calf.

Though it has recently occurred to me that I wouldn't be so tired at the ends of my longer rides if my drivetrain was clean(er).

Booster has me down. TheraFlu. The cornerstone of any nutritious breakfast. Even my arm is sore, which did not happen with I & II. Might be the day to finally organize some of my recipe collection.

This one is $15 though.

It's too cheap not to buy it :)

Got 8-10 inches of snow overnight. Spent almost two hours shoveling this morning - fun times. Gotta digest breakfast and get my ass on the trainer since I didn't Strava the shoveling to count it towards my CTL.

Good friend of mine posted this on FB today. I swear, as strange as this may seem, this is real, and one day you will get there. :lol:

Truth. And that time is closer than we want.

Warm but windy and damp ride in. Beats Zwift by a couple orders of magnitude.

Christmas parade passed right in front of the shop this morning, complete with marching band :bday:

I save myself the trouble of replacing chains every year by having so many bikes that none of them gets ridden more than 2000 miles in a year.

If by damp you meant sheets of rain coming down. Cycling activities today were canceled.

I've aged a lot in the past year.

The problem comes when they all need a chain at the same time and there is a Covid shortage. :rolleyes:

The farm where we were supposed to have our company party this evening canceled. Heated party tents and 60 mph wind gusts donít play nice together.

The bikes are blocking the view of the band. :notamused:
