Might need to take off on the holiday and bring you snow shovel for emergency assistance north of the border.

Gravity, speed affect the rate of time.

How many minutes does this hour have?

The Litespeed is starting to look more like a bike, as I work my way through the interim build.

I changed the 120mm Pro Chrome Corsa stem in the picture for a 110mm Nitto Dynamic The mix of bright aluminum with gray titanium is enough, Tossing bluish-gray stainless steel on top of that is just too much. That, and I think it will work better with a 110.

I like the triple. I have a feeling I'm gonna have to leave my bike with the double in Phoenix, unless I end up somewhere flatter. I'm getting too old not to have a 30t chainring.

Is that a Sachs RD? Don't see those much these days.

Yeah. It came with a 170mm Racing T crankset with a cracked NDS crank - somebody greased the spindles. I happened to have a 75mm Racing T, and the BB that came with it feels glassy smooth, and it's the next level up from the one I have so I thought I'd just leave it and use it with my cranks.

It came with First Generation Chorus Ergo levers, but the hoods were ripped. And short cage Chorus RD, which seems inadequate for the spread of gears. And I happened to have Sach New Success long cage RD and Ergos (also First Generation). 8sp Sachs Ergos with Sachs RD work with Shimano spacing, so I put together a wheelset with that looks matched, but is actually an Ultegra/MA3 rear and a Chorus/Reflex front. The FD that came with it is a Racing T, so I'm keeping that on it.

Like I said, though, this is just an interim build. For the final build, I'm planning something much more modern. I prefer doubles to triples, and I don't feel any need to keep this bike C&V.

Map of people who piss me off, by state.

Not Grey = Don't piss me off

Ok. I'm doing my share I see.

Bonus points for zero map content.


he is supposed to end that statement with " if you know what I mean". Kudos to you for figuring it out without the identifier.

stealing is so harsh, how about appropriating?

I find the first snowing day of the season sort of exciting, pretty, etc. and brings back a lot of pleasant memories as a child.

I find the first 0įF day absolutely depressing.

datlas 01-03-22 06:56 AM

Back at work. About 1/3 of my staff is out due to illness and/or quarantine. We are trying to do as much telemedicine as possible since 5 of the usual 6 front staff people are out.

Phooey.

Today's forecast calls for a high of 74A. 18į lower than yesterday. It appears the cold front has arrived.

Not as bad as the estimates they were trying to scare us with last night. An inch or so. Still gross.

A propos of nothing in particular, I can't believe how much people seem to eat on casual/training rides. Actually, I can't believe how much they eat in general.

Same.

I remembered to put the SportWagen in the garage last night, so Mrs. rjones28 didn't need to remove snow and ice this morning. :)

What's the proper amount of eating?
