Iíll check- if they do/donít?

If they don't - good, but you'll have to keep looking for your problem.

If they do spin, I might know the problem.

Is the front mesh? Like, can you see your bib straps through it? For whatever reason, I just can't do that, yet. Yeah, I can prance around in skin-tight clothing with glistening, freshly-shaven legs, but heaven forbid the top be semi-sheer. :foo:

they donít spin moving forward or walking it. Itís really strange because it feels fine 99 % of the time

did you ever fix the chain length?

The new chain was the correct length, it had 2 links overlap, which is whatís on the bike now, need to take out links on the other chain still

When is it worth/not worth pointing out errors in medical records?

Surface altimetry is one of the ways they track ocean currents from satellites. The Gulf Stream surface, for example, sits a few feet higher than the surrounding water. Water is also higher under a low pressure system.

Well, that's good... but it only eliminates one potential problem.

I really can't see chain length being a problem - the chain is only two links too long and, being a gravel bike, I would assume that the RD has plenty of chain wrap capacity. Just in case, what's the largest cog on the cassette?

Double-check that the quicklink is fully seated, but I doubt that's the issue... if it wasn't seated, it would probably just pop instead of skipping. Ditto with stiff link - you just waxed that chain, right? They might be a little stiff for the first few minutes of pedaling, but literally only a few minutes.

Are you sure that the indexing doesn't need a little tuning? Is it noisy when pedaling in the stand in some gears? Hell, do any of the cogs wiggle?

indexing makes sense since the bike is new, Iíll check the cogs too- itís noisier than I expected in the stand

When I'm in doubt, I do a crash recovery reset on the system, then index it.

Does it get quieter if you back the tension off about half a turn of the barrel adjuster? Noisy plus junping chain says 'too much tension' to me,

I'll probably "level up" late afternoon and again in the morning. :rolleyes:

It was 50F in the Big Apple today

I was on I-81 a couple of times today.

During the noon hour? We might have both been on it at the same time. :bday:

Uh- Oh, I have a bit of a cough. Better get tested tomorrow.

In the meantime, I'm sipping on a Jager + CBD on the rocks. Hope that helps.

I drove about 9 hours today -- Syracuse to NYC and back. The hardest leg of the trip was going from Chelsea to the Holland tunnel at rush hour.

City driving is so much fun!

Back to the Lincoln Highway :)

This is a great stretch of it for cycling (usually a big rig or two per year get stuck in the snow/ice out here when I-80 is closed)

Nope. I was underneath the Hudson River in the noon hour.

I backed the tension off and nothing happened, not really louder or quieter. I notice it jumping while backpedaling. In the biggest cog, it runs smooth pedaling forward but if I back pedal, it drops down 2 cogs and seems to bind a little regardless of tension

Some morning viral cogitations for the medical types. I awoke with a headache, something I never have. My first thought was relapse. My second thought was " maybe it never left". Just because I'm slowly recovering..... Perhaps the recovery is slow because there's still immune system/virus action going on. Or because the system was hit so hard in those few symptomatic days that it naturally takes time to build back up.

Morning. Take it easy today. You owe it to yourself.

Daughter had headaches and periodic fevers for two weeks.

I knew what Rickrolling was. I was not aware of Dickrolling.
