Mrs datlas bought some alco-pop at Wegman's. I don't usually drink but I might make an exception tonight and have one.

Monday is my birthday, and I'll be stuck doing my birthday ride on Trek Domane with Dura-Ace Di2.

I did my birthday ride today, 12 days early. :thumb:

If the weather is good, Iíll do it again!

This guy does an excellent job of enunciating exactly why, when Strava asked for money, I said "yeah actually I'm done". A much better job than I was able to, but it's bang-on to my feeling.

You're part of the Midwest. Own it.

Felt a bit more drivetrain backlash than usual on the fixed gear tonight :o

If it makes you (and bampilot06) feel any better, towards the end of my ride, yesterday, I was hearing some brake rub on the front when turning. At a stop, I gave the front end a little wiggle and saw that the through axle was a little loose, allowing the wheel to slide side-to-side a mm or two. I guess that the folks at Robert Axle Project were serious when they recommended that users check their TAs for proper torque before each ride.

Part of me wants to have a White Claw, just to say that I've tried it.

Of course, another part of me is afraid that I'll like it.

Yeah, I don't think that Mike's is anywhere close to 14%.

I think that they fell out tonight on my ride. I've never put Loctite on chainring bolts before but maybe for these little ones I'll need some.

That's no good with the axle coming out. What's the torque spec for it?
