I wanted a tail wind on the way back but didn't have any regular loops that long in that direction.

You've been hiding your face for 10 years dude, time to open up. You in witness protection or something?

I'd tell you, but then I'd have to kill you.

Guys, I keep mixing the order, is the below correct order to adjust spacers?

- remove top cap,
- loosen compression plug
- loosen stem
- swap spacers
- re do compression plug
- tighten stem and
- tighten the top cap

right?

Tighten the top cap first then tighten stem bolts.

Should be ok but key is adjust headset bearings so itís smooth but no extra play with the compression plug.

Oh, and are we talking about a carbon steerer? If not, you can leave the compression plug alone.

So, mask to the store I get, but someone is going to have to explain mask on the bike to me. I must have seen 10 people riding with masks today and even a few runners. :foo:

I felt compelled to wear mine in Zombie Land but not during todayís ride. However, I did put it on when I popped into the grocery store then managed to lose it riding home. Only one more left.

Well well well,
I tried a different rim and it popped right on. I even got the second bead on with just thumb pressure. And here's the thing. I was unaware I still had any 27s in service.

I had a feeling you were trying to get a 622 tyre onto a 730 rim. :)

I've seen a wheel where someone was successful getting one on, had to snip it off with dikes.
