In studying post #6196, I became aware of Beaver and Erie Canal.

When was the last time I learned something from one of DougRNS's posts?

all of my posts enlighten, entertain and educate. We've covered this before.

I added a behind the saddle bottle set up so I don't have to ration anymore. I get to try it out tomorrow.

Velo Vol 11-13-21 08:56 PM

I didn't venture out beyond the driveway today.

Shopping with wife, mowing of lawns, waiting on rug delivery, and installing saddle comprised my day.

Tomorrow is saddle inauguration day.

Blue bikes rule. That Time would make a nice companion.

I neither. I had planned to visit the local butcher who refurbs bikes on the side and had a gorgeous Serotta hanging in the window the other day, but I got tied up and never made it. Maybe today, I want to take a picture before it gets sold. It’s too small for me but it piqued my interest enough that I might have considered coming out of cycling retirement if it was my size. I mentioned it to my wife and her immediate response was “You don’t ride anyway”.

So judgey.

Indeed. ☹️ Aggies got a smack down also. ☹️

It begs the question: If you moved to Tejas, with no previous connection, why wouldn't you cheer for Baylor? This sounds pretty awesome, TBH.

Because while they tout the school as a Christian school, they very frequently act contrary to Christian values perhaps?

I told my kids I would pay for them to go to any school but Baylor. Full disclosure - my wife and I went to the other “Christian” schools.

So I think the cause of my leg pain is the actual aircraft it’s self and might not be bike related at all.

First the 737 is extremely cramped, and if I adjust the rudder pedals for practical use my legs are in a constant bend. If I don’t keep my feet on the Pedals, then right where I would put my feet on the floor, it’s elevated at an angle so my leg is bent at the knee but it’s putting pressure on my knee.

We took a break today and trying to get out of the seat the pain was immediate and it hurt a lot, it was in the exact same place I felt when I rode yesterday. I tried to find a solution but I don’t have really any options. The second have of the sim my captain was flying and I knew I wouldn’t be touching the controls at all so I slid my seat back to keep my leg straight.

I did a light load ride tonight. First 5 miles there was no pain and then it started to build. I stopped and raised the stem, seemed like it helped but again after about 3 miles the pain started but not as strong. I slid the seat aft about 1.5 mm and tried again, similiar result.

I found if I focused on keeping my leg in a certain position it wouldn’t bother me at all, and that seemed to work well so I joined C pace. No pain until there was pain, I tried to focus on leg placement but it didn’t seem to matter, I stopped when I realized my right leg was doing almost all the work.

Five bucks says it’s still the bike.

Yeah, this is what I'm thinking, too. The sitting position in the plane may exacerbate the issue, but I can't imagine a passenger plane cockpit forcing a knee bend and hip angle bad enough to be the root cause.

A bottle launcher? I couldn't use one because I frequently hang my butt off the back of the saddle. I tried a handle bar bag for extra bottles but didn't like the added weight on the bar, plus the loss of hand position with the bag I have. I tried carrying a bottle in my pocket but it's annoying even when empty. To me, the best compromise if I need extra water is a 70 oz Camelbak. I don't use it often these days and many roadies scoff but it works.

Harsh. P&R, but it doesn't appear from afar that they do much to promote bears, either. Do bears even live there?

I'm having one of those mornings where I'm dragging and I can't decide if that means that I should take a day off of the trainer or if it means that I should definitely hit the trainer.

Maybe another latte will bring more insight.

Same mental/physical place at the moment.

When I've had a sore knee sitting in a car or in one position aggravates it. Most of my knee pain issues have been from cleat position. It took a lot of experimenting to find the right cleat position. I toe-out a lot on the right and a little on the left. So much on the right that I have to use pedal extenders. I also use a shim under the inside of the right cleat.
I'm not especially sensitive to saddle position as I tend to move around anyway, certainly not 1.5mm, which is 1/16 inch.
