The 7410 crankset has arrived for "Interim Rebuild 2 - Just When You Thought It Was Safe To Go Back Into The Garage". Good think it's supposed to be sunny this weekend, or Interim Build 1 might never have a chance to be ridden!

Gene hit the nail on the head. If I start thinking about the lottery and all the things I would do if I won, but then I never win.

There was an article the other day that was titled How to win the lottery. It included a 7 time winner.

First sentence makes it sound like this guy won the mega millions 7 times. However, that was not the case.

He won scratchers 7 times but he is the expert on how to win the mega millions.

His adviceÖ..Drum Roll















Buy a lot of tickets.


I stopped reading after that first wonderful tidbit of information.

You havnt been to airport recently.


I always find it interesting you will see the cops with rifles all together at the airport. Usually in one small pack of 3 and 4 and they just stick together. You would think spread out evenly theough out the airport would be more beneficial.

But what do I know?

That's almost as cool as riding by the Brown Squirrel. Do they have tours?

Many years ago, there were allegations (and they were credible) that BD would offer discounts to a few select BF members in exchange for posting favorable reviews. It was very controversial at the time, but itís now ancient BF history.

I'd just go ahead and get that DA on there while it's still chilly in the morning, then go ride after it's warmed up a bit.


I've finally ordered some important bits for the bike behind the beer, supposed to get here tomorrow! :bday:

Estimated deliveryFriday, January 14 by 9:00 P.M.

Ah. That must have been entertaining. The Ibex guy was on the level and their clothing was fantastic. I bought two of their jackets, one off which got messed up in my hit and run, two years ago.

Honestly man I don't blame you for your views. The powers that be did a very good job of convincing people that this is the case. I hope you know that if you ever wake up and realize it's the government holding you hostage, not the unvaccinated, that we will accept you with open arms.

This makes no sense. It reflects nothing that Iíve said. You sound like my brother who didnít finish high school, who is stoned 90% of the time, and believes the gubbermint is evil. I donít buy or listen to his BS either.

In more pertinent news, while my wife still feels like ****, her second COVID test was negative. That explains why my Viagra trial did not yield the correct results. :thumb:

The crankset is actually BETTER than the one on the Ritchey. I THINK the BB is pretty good, too, but it's a sealed cartridge unit, so it's hard to tell. There's a set of low-mileage chainrings coming and the FD, and the special Dura Ace cable stops with the lever on the right/rear one.

I spent last evening flushing the STIs with WD40, then replacing the hoods with a pair of NOS hoods I bought a few years ago.

I know. How many quality posts have I offered here, only to have an unrelated, bad music video posted in return?

Terrible.

Yes, it'll be so nice to ride this bike with hoods finally. Although I'm starting to like the polish the levers are acquiring from riding hoodless.

I dunno what you're talking about

bampilot06 01-13-22 08:08 PM

taking the madone to the shop tomorrow. The whole bike is starting to creak. Provably just needs to be re torqued but I have two package deals for the trek store so I figured I might as well get a tune up and free clean. Has roughly 86 hours on it.

Also need to pick up some super links so I can take the chain off and properly clean it.
