I'm the opposite. The louder the better.

Pedaling would tighten a freewheel (which you C&V guys use) but most modern bikes use a cassette. Different. The cogs sit on a freewheel body and outside part of cassette screws on and holds everything in place. So it DOES need to be on tight. Shimano suggests 40 N-m.

Rode my Trek again yesterday. Did some more fit tweeking on it. That is a smooooooth riding platform. And it operates so quietly. Only 24 miles or so but it's a good workout. My seasonal depression is in full bloom, making it difficult to motivate for anything other than sleeping. I was thinking about raising my vitamin D dosage but I don't know if that's a good idea.

It’s 49F out. Time to ride with gilet and leg warmers.

I don't often ride on MUPs much, but when I do, I like to warn people with a loud hub.

Pretty easy for me to chew gum and watch someone build a wheel.

Good morning, fellow East Coasters.

Have a great ride. I'm going to try and take a day off. I'm tired.

seedsbelize2 09-29-21 06:27 AM

I'm going off pavement this morning. After I tighten that cassette, eat some breakfast and walk the dogs. It should be warm enough by then.

Do it! If you want to feel better about the cost, we can talk about the basic boat instrument package the electrician and I are putting together for LSS. :eek:

Nice! We do think about a trawler for when we're too frail to sail and The Loop is certainly the thing one does with one.

I'm sure they can be worked in to the deal.

Anyone know their snakes of New Jersey? This guy was in the road and slithered into half hiding.

Looks like a blackish smallsnake (serpentus Newjersyensis), but it's hard to be sure from the photo.

Depends on the bike, now doesn't it?

Found a website re: snakes in NJ. Appears to be a northern black racer, which are common in NJ. Definitely was not small.

More like three grunts and a pulled muscle.

According to Shimano, it's not possible to build a wheel and chew gum at the same time.

Velo Vol 09-29-21 08:16 AM

I can't remember the last time I chewed gum.
