That is so funny, I do, too. I make sure everything is ready to go. When I get up, I turn on the espresso machine to heat up before I do anything else. :D

We got it for The Mandalorian.

As for discs on the tri bike, any place where I'd want discs I probably don't want the tri bike anyway.

Just stomped a maturing lantern fly on my deck. Prepare for the next plague.

I have a cup system. If the cups are upside down, it's ready for the morning. If they're not upside down when I'm wrapping up for the night, I know to take care of whatever before going to bed.

Also, highly recommend that you get a timer/smart outlet - have the machine wake up at least a half hour before you do.

I just don't want to invest in nice rim brake wheels.

I forget there are people who couldn't just cover a wall in Jets.

Looks to my inexpert eye like a case of too much sun.

This is key, but 30 min is too long for freshness.

Thats why I got it too, and that it was free from Verizon

Making coffee is like the third thing I do in the morning.

Oh, no - this isn't to brew - it's to pre-heat the machine so that it's ready to brew. Consistency of temp is pretty important with espresso, so you want the heat to spread from the boiler and all the way through the grouphead before you start pulling shots.

The tension and trueness of the wheel is indeed off a bit, so my best guess is that's WHY the sounds are happening. I suppose I should put a tiny drop of oil at each junction for now.

Comments??

True it up and if the noise is still there then lube it. Wheels flex a bit when riding, especially when you drope the hamer. I've had creaks and squeaks, clicks, pings, you name it.

The first things I consume every day are water and prednisone.

Is the water from a drip bottle?

I found my disc bike way to irritating with the occasional rotor ping.

Wife and I are enjoying some sours tonight:
