I have plenty of trouble myself. It's fantastically complicated and linked to every other system in the body.

I tried increasing tamp first but no go. In fact, I generally use a combo distributor/tamper and yesterday, I used it plus a preset tamper and it still wasn't enough. Anyway, by the time I got it dialed in, I was so wired that I couldn't hardly function. :lol:

Do you have a a Chris King tamper?

Sometimes I'm tempted by C&V tri bikes.

There was a beautiful purple steel QR up on CL for $200 recently.

I want a funny bike so bad.

I've stayed home all weekend. Absolutely zero desire to ride :(

To be fair yesterday had a +100į heat index. I'd ride in that crap back when I lived in Texas but not with the humidity up here.

People were practically giving them away in the '90s. I used to want one, but somehow I got over it :)

Heat killed me yesterday also. I tried to ride to the local Kurdish restaurant to pick-up our dinner order, got about half mile down the road before turning around and jumping in the car to do the pick up.

Yeah. Itís not the heat, itís the humidity.

I know that it would be wholly impractical for riding out here mostly from road conditions, but man they're just so cool.

Also alluding to what Bah Humbug has been talking about, I have absolutely no idea what size I would need.

TT bike with smaller size front wheel. Was quite the fad from mid 1980ís to 1990ish. I believe gained popularity bigly after 1984 olympics.

I was thinking about this last night. A meteor might be seen(by the cosmos)as making it too easy on us

Yes, too deep of a sleep can lead to the dreaded dirt nap.

If I saw this frameset for <$200 then I'd probably have to buy it just to hang on the wall

If Salvador DalŪ designed frames...

Well. The feds say we're red tomorrow. The governor says orange. I went through two checkpoints this morning, so I'm leaning toward the feds winning out.

Acknowledging you have a problem is the first step to recovery. Take that step.
