I haven't gotten to that point - you must put out a lot more wattz. :eek:

I wouldnít want to test that theory with the massive amount of Watts I put out.

They're just patsies for Big Quick Link.

that is a supposition and can't be stated as fact. It's a stupid idea and with or without a camera lives would be lost and serves as no deterrent.

I have manly hands.

More like after several times on and off they lose their solid "click."

Stupid? Wow. No, the point was not to save lives, but to answer whether it was intentional or not. Which is a question in a few of these.

You are never going to prevent someone from doing something crazy like crash a plane or any of the other events that occur every day. Cameras would simply provide a record of events just as the FDRs do now. The FDR doesn't stop anyone from crashing a plane or from a plane crashing in the event of a malfunction, and certainly doesn't deter anything. All recorders of any type do is collect data.

When I did the R8000 build on the Litespeed, I made the chain 2 links longer than Big/Big, and discovered it had slack, so I opened the Shimano Quick Link I'd JUST installed, cut out a link, and put it back together with the same Quick Link. I did a quick check, and people DO reuse them without incident, but I figured I'd order a couple KMC links anyway.

Which reminds me, I really should actually order those.....

A friend of mine at the Local Trek store called last week to inform me that he 3D printed something awesome this past week.

He has the same madone as me, and for those of you that know, the varia and the madone donít get along.

The mount with the bands wonít stay centered when you ride, sometimes turning completly around, (still didnít help me). anywho he created a mount for the madone and he hooked me up today. He said he will make blue ones soon, but Iím pretty stoked just to have it as is.

I'm sorry but even with the explanation, I don't know what I'm looking at.

I saw a yellow belied racer in SD. I was photographing some pronghorns when I heard something on the road behind me. Thing lived up to its racer name.

This one was pretty slow. Given it was right in the middle of the trail sunning it must have been a little cold still.

Do you know what a Garmin Varia Looks like?

bampilot06 05-18-22 04:12 PM

Iíve never heard a snake be called a racer before.

Trsnrtr 05-18-22 04:15 PM

For the record, I used to reuse quick links until I broke a couple. Now, I check them carefully for looseness where the side plate and the pin join as that seems to be where they break apart at. Also, I don't mix quick links and chain manufacturers as there is some variation.

It's a type of snake, not another name for a snake.
