I went with 34/50 chainrings and would have preferred 12-28 cassette but not an option so got 11-28. Plan is to strip Habanero completely down after the holiday season and do the build over the winter. Really the only item I am unsure about is the headset. Itís a standard Cane Creek and 12 years old, never serviced but still smooth as butter. I donít know whether to just leave it alone or ask LBS to replace bearings. Thoughts?

Service it. If it's smooth it's good.

Have to make sure the next bike is not a BB90ÖÖ

won't matter unless you can get a threaded b.b. most new bb are press fit of some kind. They all have one thing in common. They all suck. Bb30, of 30, bb86 , bb90. Bb Dub of my ass. Garbage!
Threaded b.b. with bearing cups are still problematic at times but by far the best for those of us without personal mechanics.

People who get on a moving walkway at an airport and stand on it like itís an amusement ride. Because they have a three hour lay over everyone else in the airport must have one too.

Tldr, because it most likely doesn't effect me.

If you have the normal spacer that comes with a Shimano cassette, which very well be a .6mm, then that's not the 10/11 speed one. That one is 1.8mm. If you don't have that, you have a 10 speed body.

. Now I have to tear one of mine apart. I can't remember if there's a spacer in either of mine or not....

Some people can ride 98 miles and claim they rode a century. Some can put on a century ride that's only 98 miles long.
I would say if you didn't change clothes, it's a century.

My latest amusement has been riding to increments of ALMOST a whole number, like 59.9 miles, and deliberately stopping my computer so I can show my wife the ride and infuriate her. Good times.

Whether that's pushing their music on everyone, hogging the path, drafting without asking, weaving around, stopping in the middle of the grocery store aisle, or the thousand and million other things people do all the time without thinking about it. And this is why I want my moat.

+100.

Saw another grocery cart parking garage leave-behind a couple of weekends ago. The cart corral was literally about 15' away.

I wants my cabin in rural Montana. Thing is, prices have gone through the roof since the pandemic. This place sold for around $158K in 2918. Asking price today is $550K. Even if the renovations were after the last sale, that's still insane.

What about the 'thread-together' sort, where the cups thread into each other rather than depending on press fit working?

Cue sheets are done and copied.
Kitchen is packed.
Tonight it's laundry and fresh rubber.

Sure it is. Just might not be one that has a high probability of success.

That sounds like a valid qualifier to me.

Very impressed with the shipping speed of a package from Lordgun (Italy) - shipped Friday, delivered today. Got me some skinwall Pirelli P-Zero TLs for my Storck. I'm hoping I get the opportunity to mount them tonight.

...or one-piece, the ultimate brute force solution?

Yeah. "54.9 miles. Do I go around the block to bring it up to 55? Or is that cheating?"

Why would your failure make your wife mad? Mine would just laugh.




Unless I fail to please her in some way.

nah, they still waller, (technical term) around in the cup and cause noises. I had aIToken on my '16 Tarmac and it made the same noises it's making now ...tick...tick tick...tick. Argh! Maddening. As a matter of fact the drive side bearing had fretted the cup of the insert to the point it fell out on disassembly. I glued it back in but the decided to use the brand new Dub bb I had instead. No change.

Even people here.

It doesn't count as a century.

B.C.? If so, that's a really good buy, given 5000 years of inflation.
