Man that sounds good about now. I shoulda hit Total Wino on my way home.

Alas the casa is booze free ATM. Need to get some Maker's for the egg nog (we got a jug of fake nog - AKA nog flavoured oat milk), and some tasty porter and/or stout.

I used to get Silk soy-nog for the wife. A good oat-nog world be awesome. I'll have to see if Oatly makes some.

Ooohh - I like almond milk, but it's not kind to my wife's stomach.

The Chobani oat stuff has been okay... but not nearly as good as Oatly Full Fat. I'll hold out.

Seriousness is overrated.

You get used to windy. It's relatively easy to deal with. just keep pedalling You may go a bit slower than usual. at least it isn't steep hills. I'm allergic to those.

:bday: Happy New Wheelset Day!!! :bday:

Weighing my options at the moment. May end up relaxing the hubs in to some new rims. I managed to find some direct replacement rims at one of our distributors, but there also may be some upgrade opportunities.

Sorry about your cracking wheel.

Time is 50cm c-c seat tube, 55.5cm c-c top tube. Definitely a medium frame. Fairly aggressive though. ;)

I've got a few hubs I'd really love to build a set of wheels from. Just need the bikes to out them on :)

I'd been noticing some creaking noises when out of the saddle recently. Seems to correlate, so I guess finding out may solve a problem.

Bit the real question is - how do I rebuild these?

Hubs are Origin8 cartridge bearing with a nice quiet freehub. 20F and 24R. There are some polished H Plus Son Archetypes in stock at a distributor...

Bummer, a smidge small.

The worst is climbing into a cold headwind. The first time I went to Mill Creek Summit (a 6 mile climb following a 9 mile climb) I had tonsillitis and only a knit jersey and it was cold with a rude headwind. Probably 1989. They waited at the top for me and someone said "You don't look so good". I was ok after that awful climb was over.

I've done the Mount Wilson New Year's Day ride 16 times, at least the climbing part of it. I remember it being so windy I could hear the sand rattling against my glasses. Starts with the same 9 mile climb as the previous sufferfest and besides wind there has been rain and cold. Why would I ride to the top of a 5500 foot mountain on Jan 1? Then you have to come back down with more cold wind when you are wet. I started carrying lots of extra clothes but the last time I did it my friend was not prepared for the 20 degree descent and she suffered terribly. I was just talking to her about that this Tuesday.
Last Jan 1 I did a ride at the coast. It was a lot easier.

I remembered climbing Mill Creek from the other side and the winds were awful and swirling around. My friend and I were on the last part of the climb when a strong sidewind pushed me toward the center of the road, lucky there were no cars and my friend was pushed out of my way. Scared the crap out of me but during the following descent the wind was behind me and suddenly I was going way too fast and it was eerily quiet. I did not like that feeling and I was worried if the wind switched again it would be bad news. On the same road on a different day a friend got blown off of his bike crossing a bridge.

I did a charity ride where the headwind was so strong that people were walking their bikes on flat ground. I had never seen that before.

I can talk about wind a lot.

I would take it to a bike shop and have them do it, probably.

I've gotten chilled at that elevation during the summer, here in the quasi-north.

I am wondering, though, if I can unpair the cadence from the trainer and pair the PM crankset instead... :foo: Whenever Zwift connects to the trainer under the "Controllable Trainer," it automatically grabs it for the Cadence, as well, so I don't know if it's all or nuthin'. I'll try tomorrow.


You can select whatever sensor Zwift can find for any of the sensor types.

Do you have the single cell battery in the pedals or two of the smaller ones?

I have the single cell in my V3's and have only had dropout issues when the battery was on the verge of death.

Single cell. It was happening even with fresh batteries.

Same. Wind is a normal thing here. We're not that far from Wyoming.
