I rolled out on the Canyon for my New Years Day ride at about 11:30, after sleeping in and enjoying a leisurely morning. 3 miles in, the rear of the bike starts to feel distinctly spongy, so I look down and sure enough, the tire was going flat. There was a 3x3mm piece of glass stuck through the tread. So, I changed the tube, and pumped it up pretty much all the way, which is not bad for an old guy with a minipump and a 28mm tire. Then, as I unscrewed the hose from the valve, it turned out I had also unscrewed the valve core - FFFffffffffff.......

SON OF A B****!!!!!!

I screwed it back together, pumped it up AGAIN, and rode home. On the way, I considered whether to pump up the previously-flatted tire, give the cut a quick feel to see if it was bulgy at all, toss a new tube in the saddle bag and hit the road again, OR to swap all the stuff over to the Bianchi and hit the road on it, OR to just put the bike back on the trainer and go for a virtual ride. The middle alternative won out. It's just too gorgeous out to be stuck in a windowless garage, watching a virtual landscape go by in low res.

So I ended up doing TWO rides on the first day of 2022. 6 and 31 miles.

Man, that's painful to see. I hope it all cleans up OK.

Many possible meanings.

How does that happen? We’re you pedaling backwards when shifting?

Approaching a steep hill, I shifted both derailleurs simultaneously. I think the FD shift was incomplete when I tried to shift the rear. Lots of chain slack caused the jam.

Those hubs have less than 2000mi on them. Everything else aside from the frame is at about the same mileage. I believe there's a phrase involving bath water that may me appropriate here.

In a big way! Thankfully I just switched to black bar tape ;)

The chain didn't get twisted and the RD seems OK.

Didn't get any grease on the white jersey I was wearing, which is the real win I think.

Anyone else eating sauerkraut tonight? Pork goulash with a good Chinon for us.

Maybe it means Velo Vol resumes his epic rides of yore?

I dunno, but apparently it begins under the sign of the mother.

I think he might be a tad optimistic, but fingers crossed :)

I think I'll put some of my homemade on my salad.

Great idea.

I have leftover beef goulash in the fridge, but no kraut. There is half a head of cabbage in the fridge though

Oh, Minnetonka update from yesterday.

Also my rear hub is incredibly loose, like ~2mm of play. It wasn't like that at the start of the ride, so that should be fun to diagnose :rolleyes:

Not a simple tightening of the cones? You don't even have to take it off. Just loosen the qr.

I hope that 95x rear derailleur is OK.

I need to get another 953. Sure wish I woulda grabbed a couple more while they were still regularly $40 on eBay.

Is that for your cabbage requirement?

We had Chinese at a local family owned place that we frequent. The type where virtually no one speaks Engrish.

The temp has now dropped over 40 degrees in 4 hours. Cursing the north.

seedsbelize2 01-01-22 07:57 PM

I hope that cold front makes it down here. The forecast is for a cold front, but that's the forecast for the whole country. -10C and snow up north, and we go down to 85A
