Well, since her bike hasn't been shipped, I'm sure something will be figured out by the time it is.

6800 FD vs R8000 FD

not positive - ? -

Is there a slight difference in the crankset / chainring spacing - 6800 vs R8000 ?

And if yes - is there a difference in the FD design or operation ?
.

Both are 11 speed but the design and setup are different. I think the ramps on chainrings are same/similar but not positive.

One of my club mates has been riding a Ti Seven for many years. She was offered a great price on a gently used Emonda from another club member and is raving about how much better and faster the bike feels. I am suspecting the placebo effect is strong, but I am happy for her, regardless.

Why would it not have the bars I have?

I was told they were going away from the one piece design back in June last year.

That was the one piece Madone stem/bar I believe. The Madones and Emonda don’t share the same bars.

I think also that the Madone’s cables are run through the bars and into the head tube; whereas, the Emonda’s are routed under the bars.

Well that’s silly. They should have made them the same. I thought that was the whole point. Emonda/Madone.

Madone more aero.

Emonda lighter weight.

Not the same. Otherwise, you’d have to throw the Domane in there.

All use the same letters though.

Madone and Emonda share geometry though.

I'm surprised they haven't made an electric bike for bikepacking and called it the eNomad.

Ride from 2019. Wish I had heart rate data back then, I am sure it was through the roof.

Quality.

My father and a friend, who were both lawyers who had some interesting cases in their lives, penned an idea for a TV show involving lawyers at a firm. They sent it off to some company in Hollywood. May have been MTM. I can’t remember. A few years later “L.A. Law” started airing. They didn’t have enough basis to claim copyright infringement.

Somehow I had avoided this dreaded warm-weather nemesis until today. There was a swarm out seeking to inflict pain upon me.

The old unit had that stand-off screw and the “braze-on” has its own pressure plate. Sticking that thing onto the tube with the derailleur mounted would have been a bit fiddly. My cable is frayed from the clamp on the old one and needs to be replaced, but I got the end through the cap and put an end cap on it. I was afraid I’d lose it otherwise.

Damn! You’re lucky those things didn’t band together, carry you off, and devour you.

Summer is not over yet, there is still time.

Ugh. The Bloat has begun.

I'm not accustomed to eating out so much and, between big serving sizes and the inlaw's eating schedule, I find myself stuffed all too frequently when we're in VA. Today was no different - I was still full from lunch but the in-laws wanted to go out for Mexican at a place that I like.

I felt sorry for our server - a table of six, including two kids, two people splitting a meal (MIL and BIL) and my wife and I, who were too full for anything besides drinks and half-heartedly picking at chips and salsa. I knew that my MIL would pick up the tab, and I'm appreciative of that, but I also knew that the tip would suck. I decided that the only sensible thing to do would be to order a shot of tequila, after the tab had been settled, so that I could lay some suitable gratuity down. I tell ya - the sacrifices I make. :p

A little ****er like that got scooped in to my partially unzipped jersey a few years ago. Stung me a couple times before I could get it out. :notamused:

Plaza Aztecta, High Street/Richmond Road.

Favorite place to go alone is the little place further up Richmond Road, kind of across from the old Pottery stores.

I just checked the Emonda SLR7 Project One build and the one piece is standard.

Sometimes you have to be a team player and take one for the team.

Years ago I helped paint from time to time. The worst of it was when you're up on the ladder and one or more starts coming after you. If you're stationary, they basically keep coming back until you kill them.
