I sense another lesson coming soon.

Make sure your dental insurance is paid up.

New stem is dope. Super stiff, and super low. Feels like iím dragging my chin along the ground now. The blender system was a bonus. Was able to mount my garmin unit to the stem, which frees up my mount for the Ritchey. I wish I could mount the light too, like I have it on my Madone, but this is the original blender system so I think you can only mount one or the other.

Should be able to do both with the Duo Base that fits your stem.

Don't do that.

A blender on a bike! What'll they think up next?

You are probably right, I will have to ask.

I find with Keos I end up having to look down about 1 out of 10 times. They spin too easily and I end up with the cleat against the back of the pedal. I have to look down to make sure I get the right orientation. I almost never had this problem with Deltas.

Shopping online--how does it work?

I've average at best at clipping in, but with Shimano there's no point in looking down. Just got to learn to do it by feel.

Eventually I got out of that business.

There are dual Blendr mounts available, as long as it's the one that just clips in the gap of the face plate.

For which bike? $400 is a lot for carbon bars, but there are always carbon bars out there from legit manufacturers at $120 or so. I would do that rather than $50 bars from who-knows-where.

This. I found my Trek carbon bars on Ebay for far less than retail price. A Trek dealer was moving old inventory.

Don't feel to bad. I almost fell over reaching to hit a crosswalk button a couple of weeks ago. Ended up hugging the pole with one foot clipped.

But, I'm not a racer. :innocent:

It's gonna be a wet ride to the bike shop this afternoon.

I don't have an Awesome Marigold Jacket. But, all of my lights and electronics are fully charged and my rain gear is by the door.

genejockey 05-04-22 11:33 AM

The Older Boy is working an early shift this week - 6 AM. And his new store is NOT along a simple public transit route, so I'm driving him. Which means the last 3 days I've been up at 5:30, then home at no later than 6:05. The last two days, I've been hitting the virtual road by 7:00 and getting in an hour or more's ride on Zwift. I confirmed that I can go at least 90 minutes with nothing but coffee, and it's not a bad start to the day. Maybe better than riding in the evenings, I dunno. But I'm still a night owl - my 'awakeness' actually increases after 9 PM, which makes going to bed early tough. I thought Monday night or last night I'd be so exhausted from lack of sleep that I'd be able to crash early, but no.

This can't be good for me, overall. As Benjamin Franklin never said, "Early to rise and late to bed makes a man healthy, wealthy, and dead."

And now people in texas think you have an infatuation with light poles.
