None, really. I just rarely used it and I seemed to be a target for hackers. I spent a lot of time trying to get back in to IG after my account was hacked and they changed my password. My brother had the same problem with FB.

So, on the ride today, just a block away from home, actually, I had a very... unusual experience. A little boy, maybe 9 years old, sees me riding by and he yells, "can I get a hiiiyaaa?!"

Now, if you're not familiar, this is a call and response meme. While the boy pronounced the "hiiyaaa!" along the lines of kids playing karate, the norm is to call back in a most... lascivious manner... suggestive of a (stereotypically Asian) woman in the, uh, throws of passion. The out-of-left-field and totally inappropriate nature of this coming from a young kid totally threw me, and I couldn't do much but stifle a laugh.

It would be easier to list the things I can't do.

DougRNS 10-02-21 01:39 PM

Oh, saw this on the ride. I don't know anything about the bike or the brand, but I thought that, at the very least, LesterOfPuppets would enjoy the paintjob.

I think it's a chicken or egg argument. Which one comes last is the one we want.

The other one is the Cannondale, though. It's got a threadless headset, but it's a 1" steerer and a 26mm bar. Current stem is a 130mm, 0 degree 3T Forge Ahead I got back in 1995. I thought, "Oh, I'll just get a 120mm version" Yeah, right. I have been looking for one for MONTHS, and all I ever see are 130 or longer. Or 10 degree, which I don't want. Or 25.4 clamp, which I also don't want. Oh, the pain of too many bikes.


You need a shim.

It has decent reviews and *allegedly* shifts better than Force or Red eTap. I don't know if I'd like having to remember to charge all of those batteries though.

it's only 2 batteries. The other are 2 coin batteries in the lever body. I'm going on 2 years with mine

Did you try turning it off and back on?

Rossins are badass, and often have badass paint like that too!

Dandy Don would say, turn out the lights the party is over.

Minnetonka update. Looks like it might be thinking of raining.

JSU Band is very large and known for its high standards.

In the ‘80s, and probably ‘70s, Italian makers were in their heyday and Rossin was one of them. There were quite a few at the Crits in my region. From the paint job, I’d place it as late 80s or early 90s when garish paint jobs appeared.
