After a very pleasant week of cooler days with some cloud cover, and a bit of moisture, Mother Nature has loudly proclaimed, "Summer ain't over, b****es!" 100 yesterday. 98 today.

In a nearby yard that I ride by they've had, for a number of years, a row of corn plants that are super tall*. I should take a picture of them.

*Exact height unknown

Uhm. There is a "pneumovax" vaccine that does not protect against pneumonia. It does protect against invasive pneumococcal pneumonia, so it's still worth getting.

There is also the Prevnar 13, which has some data suggesting protection against the 13 strains of strep. pneumonia but these strains are disappearing due to kids getting the vaccine, so we don't ordinarily recommend it either.

I just rolled up my sleeve, and told her to do whatever she wants. They then sent me down to the lab, and I gave them about a gallon of blood. I get to give more next Monday when I get my CT Scan. All part of a study I'm in for the COPD nonsense they say I have.

So far I'm unable to find a replacement crankset from Campagnolo or Fulcrum Racing. It's 10 speed, 50x34, 175 length, and Ultra Torque bb. I've seen 11 speed, don't know what the difference is except maybe the thickness of the rings?
Seen Power Torque stuff. That looks like the way Shimano cranks bolt together. Don't know if it will fit in the Ultra Torque cups.
I know a Campagnolo freak who might have the answers. I should call him. I only call him when I want something.

For Shimano at least, you can use an 11 speed crankset on 10 speed drivetrain. I expect the same is true for you but check with your expert.

Corn hybrids vary a lot, some are short and some are tall. Regardless, Iím sure you could Goggle it if you were serious.

I'm running an Ultra Torque 11 speed Centaur crank, 50x34, 175 on the Bianchi. It works fine. Or it WOULD, if the left Ergo lever hadn't decided shifting was too much bother.
EDIT: Planet Cyclery has ONE left.

I think Campy is even easier than Shimano because the front lever is all ratchets, no indexing at all, so spacing is irrelevant. At least, mine work like that.

Much taller than eight feet, but not 30 feet (wut).

Hard for me to estimate exactly.

I'm not even sure what a crostata is but a peach one sure sounds good right about now.

All the way. Even in the snow.
