I repositioned and tightened rear QR more tightly and I believe problem fixed.

This has happened on the Roubaix at times. Is it typical for when rear QR not tight enough??? I am positive the wheel was centered properly at ride start. Vertical dropouts on both bikes, if that matters. Thoughts??

Typical

As we sat through the bulk of the day and into the night yesterday with no power( a not infrequent event) I began to wonder about the new electric high speed rail system being built across the Southeast. There is not currently enough power for the general consumer.

There's a regional company that owns several local newspapers.

I don't subscribe to any of them.

DougRNS gets it! (if only for a brief time) This and many other performances featured at the 2022 Rossini Festival. Well worth the drive from nearby NW ATL metro.

The power here was out this morning for 45 minutes+. Annoying

Cloudy and 71F on the ride home from the shop. It did not rain on me.

Funny, when I bought a set of Record hubs the literature said to tighten the QR with such force that it would hurt your hand and leave a mark, or something to that effect.

Wouldn't it be so much more convenient if the news came to you?

I had my follow up today after my failed nerve block test. All signs point to a bad disc. I am going to see if my insurance company will pay for a discogram diagnostic test. If the test produces pain the disc is bad and surgery is the next step. They already denied the test but that was before I did the nerve block.

I'm screwed. Now I have to decide on fusion or artificial disc. The first neurosurgeon I saw talked about fusion being the better option and that Tiger Woods had fusion to repair his back.

They can't spot disc defects via imaging?

Why not the lesser alternative of discectomy?

They can with MRI.

Nope. Had an MRI 13 months ago and slowly worked their way through the process to get where I am now. Sounds like post-op recovery can be as long as 6 months but maybe not as long for cycling since it's non contact and not much motion. MoAlpha would have a better idea about that. The bone takes 6-12 months to grow together. The fusion part is the bone not the screws. They have some sort of chemical that they put in the plastic "spacer" that is a catalyst.

This video explains it but I'm not sure how it will be done in my case. They do it through the abdomen! Their is also a chance of a side effect in men. Good thing I'm past the age of having kids. That's all I'm going to say about that.
