It's always cool to minimize the good done by someone, by pointing out the MORE good.

Yeah, multi-quote has worked better than ever since they done re-did it.

For those having problems, check the multi-quote box for every post *except* the last one that you'd like to quote - you simply hit the "quote" on that one and you should be good to go.

Awesome objectives..

They're probably the ones being most careful these days, or that's what I assumed.

I have absolutely no business owning one of these, but that certainly doesn't kill the desire to own one.

Funny bikes are already super cool, but a Hellenic-stay funny bike just takes things to the next level.

And it's the only one I've ever seen that's my size.

Very cool. The demand won't go away.

But you fail to see the potential for these one-percenters competing with one another for the public good . . . THAT'S what I'm looking at. :)

But yes, I'm also asking how is it they could only manage one million masks? Publicity stunt crosses my mind, but that's just ol' cynical me.

Which shifter and what model?

Shimano 6600.

For a while the back one has done this weird thing were sometimes it does not want to shift to smaller gears on cooler rides. Then on warmer days it works fine. I don't get it.

I remember you said you had saddles. I was going to try to measure myself to use to find a better fit. Maybe my project this weekend.

No. I guess I have to wait for yours. Mine was the only positive response. Someone must have slipped in on the sly

And silly me for even giving what I can, because people have such high standards for what giving should be.

Huh. Maybe just needs to be cleaned out. The mechanism in the shifter isn't working when it's cold, it's not just that the cable is maybe binding somewhere?

And to be clear, when you say shifting to smaller gears, you're talking about the shifter releasing cable instead of pulling, right?

I tried that once and bought a saddle based on my results.

It didn't work out for me, unfortunately.

I don't know whether to interpret what happened as that the measurement was BS, or that the recommended saddle width based on my measurement was BS.

Good luck.

Donít do cooler rides.

Other than squirting WD40 into the brifter I don't know much of what can be done about it.

I'm talking about shifting to the smaller gears after you've climbed the hill.

Bet the cable may be sticking. Something is preventing it from doing what it naturally should do.

If I had the choice I'd never ride below 60F.

Sounds to me like whatever lube is inside the housing is the problem. You're capable of changing cables and housings, certainly.

"What's that - you're giving me this beautiful horse! Well, let's take a look at those teeth!" :rolleyes:

a) Marbury hasn't done anything yet except announce his intent. If he gets it done, good on him.
b) no matter the intention, that's *really* cynical to think, "oh, they only provided a million masks to health care professionals that'll be helping others that are dying."
c) big numbers get thrown around all the time, so we tend to lose our grasp on the magnitude. A million. That's a thousand... a thousand time over. That's a lot. A lot, a lot. But they didn't purchase 1 million. They purchased 1.7 million - 1.4 are allotted to MA, and 300,000 are being sent to NY. Also, it's a passenger plane - the first shipment was 1.2 million and they need to go back for the rest.

Ball sports rivalries are good, dumb fun, but shouldn't be confused with the real world.

Hopefully a set price was stated up front and no bidding took place.

When mine was doing something similar cleaning it wd40 fixed the problem. I had an issue on cold days it was shifting weird or not shifting at all.

Gotcha. I guess just try flushing it a few more times and cycle it a lot. I think that a select few people have successfully overhauled Shimano STI stuff, but they are few and far between,. They really don't like going back together after being taken apart, unlike Campagnolo Ergopower levers.

eBay has quite a few in the $70-$100 range. Seems like the path of least resistance if flushing doesn't work. You should be able to swap one out without even needing to remove bar tape.

However:
