If you have it, you might as well, but the main concern to me was the FD cable contacting the side of the hole where it exited the back/top of the BB area.

That's a word that technically works, but I don't think I've ever seen it. ;)

You mean you don't dedicate your life to a meta-analysis of television and other pop culture?

Man,, the funny thing is Hamilton actually makes me nostalgic for living in the Revolutionary region.

But that's easier to think about in July.

In the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand big bicycle should be able to design a cable system that attaches one part of a bicycle to another.

SMH.

But then we wouldn't have reason to buy fancy electronic shifting systems.

They are 685s. A quick look suggests others have had this problem and half of them are unaware you can easily remove the bottom of the lever body to retrieve a broken end and are resorting to dental picks and other laborious methods.

I had a few scraps, but didn't use them. I'll put some fresh stuff on when I redo them. I did slip a piece on the FD cable with that in mind, but I don't think it actually contacts the edge.

The choir part too?

Remember when 2016 started off bad and we thought that it couldn't get much worse? :twitchy:

Bummer.

Related fact: one of my undergrad classmates was Kozo Shimano, who ran North American operations for Shimano before retiring in 2008. I knew who he was but did not know him personally. They said he had a really nice bike at school.

Went to the doctor today for a quick blood pressure check. Blood pressure is fine, faa requires it. Anyways, while I was there I mentioned my hand (it has gotten better), and he was shocked that I was on the bike for four hours. He actually showed concern, and said the max cardio activity I should be doing is 60 mins max three times a week. He said that hours of cardio has been proven to cause heart problems in Endurance athletes. I donít plan on stopping what I am doing anytime soon, Thoughts anyone?

Rarely, you can get scar tissue in the heart but I believe this is really for ultra-distance activities. I see nothing wrong with 4 hours on the bike. Or even more. One of my former cycling friends was a commercial pilot and rode/rides lots and was not told to limit his riding.

He wasnít referring strictly to me. He was speaking about everyone in general.

He is obviously not a cyclist.

Oh ****, you're right.

So, another black swan event to shatter a world hanging on by a thread?

On a personal level, 2016 was the year my poor old boy died (in August, when I thought that was the worst thing in the year). I think it's since then that media death has hit me harder; "It's Quiet Uptown" has been rolling in my head today and it's brutal.

I found out I have Ventricular Tachycardia when testing after my accident last year. I found I can minimize it with medication and reducing the training load I carry. The days of 200+ mile one day rides and double metrics are gone, may try a lazy century later in the season. Sad, but not worth dying over.
The funny thing is I saw random high HR numbers, but thought the monitor was screwing up. Cardiologist told me that HR's are really good at counting beats, good or bad. I never felt anything while it was happening, but doesn't change the possible outcome of syncope, or death.
