All we have to do is find a time and a place where I'm not boiling and you're not freezing. :twitchy:

Stopped at a grocery store for a bottle of wine. Woman in front of me pulls down her mask, wipes her nose with her fingers then puts those fingers on the counter. Gross.

That's getting downright Venusian!

Did hill reps in the local atmosphere this a.m. Didn't feel too bad, but the amount of sweat I shed while going slow and working hard in 77ļ and 100% relative humidity is spectacular.

Found a Camelbak WB with the fancy valve.

Oh, and residential AC equipment is gobbich. We are at 8 years and looking at 2500 for a new coil. They tried to sell me on a whole new system because everything is about to asplode.

New 90í HR record (156bpm) and 25í total above 300w. And chased down and mercilessly dropped the Felt IA with 404s that got me at point.

Now excuse me while I go pass out.


I donít see it on my strava feed. Doesnít count. :lol:

buffalo is HAF. Only reason I bid this trip was to go north and get away from the heat. I found a bike shop to rent a bike. It would be a 54 diverge. 50 dollars for 3 hours, and I didnít bring my helmet so throw in another 10 for that.

I offered 25 for 2 hours, they didnít bite.

Ride today was good but SO humid. At rest stop, one of the riders was not looking so good. I asked her how much water she drank so far. She said 2/3 of a bottle. I had gone through both my bottles by that time. I suggested she drink more but obviously she is of the Velo Vol school of hydration.

The total ride was just under 3.5 hours and I ended up drinking over 4 bottles of water.

If you looked up while you were out, I flew over you.

Bad diagnosis, probably.

Geeze. I rode a couple of miles to the Reading Terminal this morning. By the time I got home I was asweatiní like crazy.

What if he didn't look up?

Major school axes rowing. Sad.

So I realized the rear wheel making the pinging sound has a small crack near one of the spoke holes, which is a bumner. Sad!

I threw on another old rear wheel (the stock DT Swiss boat anchor that came on the Roubaix) but I realized why I had it off the bike and on the shelf: for some reason, under heavy load only, the wheel goes side-to-side slightly but enough to rub the rear brake. This is really a drag. The wheel itself spins nice and true. I can’t quite figure out why it does this other than maybe I need to tighten the axle somehow? The QR is plenty tight in the dropout.

Advice?

Yíall keep it up and Iíll get back on Strava for the summer just to wreck someonesí days on the podium and just delete again after the weather turns again.

And then this thread will be rueing once again.

I rode a bike today
Uptown, for a bike tire. I had a spring in my step upon returning

I donít make the rules.

Grrr. LPLO

I have been in wheel mode for the past two weeks. Building, and overhauling. This morning I had to cannibalize an orphan axle for a cone. Once this bike goes out the door, probably tomorrow, I will be one rear wheel short of playing with a full deck. I have been rear wheel short since forever. All the while I've been flush with fronts.
I so enjoy building bikes that I've given thought to doing just that, in flipper mode, to rid myself or all the extra components. Rather than try to sell them, or simply giving them away.

Can you feel the axle being loose? Maybe an overhaul. But again, I don't know what that means with modern wheels. Do they still use cup and cone axles?

Can you feel play in the axle if you try to move in the bearings?

bampilot06 07-08-20 01:30 PM

Just walked into a dicks in buffalo, the hand sanitizer they made me use smelled like straight whiskey. I donít drink anymore, the smell made me gag. The lady just stared at me.

We all saw what you did there. Clever or bad pun, I'm not judging.

Also mechanicals....I hate them.:(

Luckily they have a gallery of pics from the good ol' days:

Oysh.

I consumed about 4 bottles on Sunday over about that duration. One had Gatorade in it, I'm happy to say. Na+ is fast on days like this.
