What share of your total ride time do you spend in the drops?

Depends. Fast group, 100% if I can stay on. Windy ride, 100% except with tailwind. Mountain ride, only when descending unless windy. Casual cruise 0%.
Any time I'm trying to be in a hurry I go to the drops. I have shallow drop bars on my main bike and deep drop on my old bike. It's a shock to jump on the old bike for the first time in months and suddenly the drops are 2" lower.

That's just the way those scientists are.

Yes. I think it's more likely to be lack of attention to detail. Though I am a big fan of non-locality. The lack of attention could possibly be blamed on the Covid, and it could also be an indicator of the state of the country and its direction.

As my wife says, "I don't follow Hockey".

I was out actually cycling. On the road.

Today's ride was one of those where you're not really feeling it, and your shifting feels wonky, and your legs just don't seem to have that snap, and the wind is in your face no matter which way you're going, and you figure, "Well, it's better than working, I guess".

Then you find out it's your fastest ride on that particular route, and you got 10 Strava achievements on a road you've ridden dozens if not hundreds of times. So, I guess I wasn't THAT bad.

Up early to ride and (I hope) beat the rash of pages.

My understanding is that it's got two different headset bearing caps and, between those and spacers, it's capable of being as low as (or maybe lower than :foo:) a slammed R3 or taller than the max of a C3. IIRC, the handling should be a tad slower than an R3, which would make it a little quicker than a C3.

No, the line was too long with self righteous anti-mask people. They’re gonna be a while.

Slow morning. Must be Saturday

Of course, the solution is a set of 'computer glasses', but I don't really want to get that close to a stranger at the optometrist, what with all the slow agonizing death floating around. So, it's between my vanity and my health.....

”lineless” my ass. I still see the “line” on my right lens all the time. I hate progressive bifocals for that reason. Multi focal contacts on the other hand, :love:.

My only CAD software is at work, does anyone have any recommendations for some freeware that works decently well? This year my favorite 2D CAD program became paid only, and I'm not about to pay $100/year for something I use so rarely at home :(

SkechUp? Or if you want to go true 3D, Fusion 360 (aka RhinoLight ;))

I watched part of the game Thursday night but didn’t stay long enough to see a dugout shot. What are they doing about social distancing in the dugout, using adjacent grandstands?

it was rained out by the time I turned in, but other games I saw them using seats behind the dugout.

It's kind of a cluster with improper mask wearing and constant fiddling around with the masks. I saw spitting as well, that is an automatic thing that's going to be hard to eliminate. That and crotch adjusting of course.

I can’t wait to see how they plan to pull this off, I think they’re about as delusional as the wh. They need a bubble situation like the NBA, but there are at least 3 times as many players and coaches involved. What’s the plan, Roger?
