OMG. Dream car alert. They don't even put a listing price on it, so I guess that's a "If you have to ask, ..." kinda situation.

Chocolate is essential. I would give up water first.

There have been threads on wobbling and many times there is no apparent reason discovered. It seems that certain combinations of bike/wheel/rider sets up a frequency that causes a wobble.
I had a friend who had a Miele with a wicked death wobble and nothing he did would stop it so he got rid of the bike. I've never had a speed wobble on a bike. Lucky me.

Damn things better not be flexing with all the hype about how stiff they are.

Even though I have a slight cold (no covid symptoms) I couldn't stay off the trainer and Rouvy... so picked something short and easy for an easy spin - Lava Beds. This is a route in Oregon that is a bit rolling and mostly downhill. Only one very easy climb, and well, halfway up I've already forgotten I was going to take it easy and attack it. So much for an easy spin! :rolleyes: It was super short though, so not much of a workout and not enough to really fatigue me, but it feels good to work up a bit of a sweat!

But dammit, couldn't get my new CLIMB to work. I can pair it to the CORE, or adjust it manually, but it never changes automatically... I must be missing something. Updated the firmware first thing. Enter wheel size and wheelbase in the app. But it just sits at what the app says is -1.9% (it's not, it's level, as verified by measuring axle heights). Have a support ticket for it.

Maybe they're so stiff that you stiffening up leaves no place for the wobble energy to go?

Pissed off that I forgot to get some dark chocolate when I was in the store Tuesday.

That’s why I am thinking of lowering the tire pressure a little.

I've settled on classical guitar. For the time being anyway
And I built another wheel today. Still needs to be finished up

Where I used to work the owner had a 54 Corvette. 6 volt, 6 cylinder with 3 carburetors, 2 speed automatic. I hated working on that thing.

Carburetors suck, and feedback carbs suck even more.

Syncing carburetors, and setting duel point distributors, are two things I don't really miss. :50:

That was for his edification. I don't like most chocolate and rarely eat candy.

my new weakness is ice cream. Anything chocolate and peanut butter, if I canít find that then I add my own peanut butter. I was never into sweets, but my day doesnt feel complete with out some of this cold sweetness.
