a) playing with other components is what the N+1 is for
2) How are you going to leave the flats of the aero handlebars unwrapped and sexy if the cables aren't internal? :foo:

Addiction - how this place has fallen. :P

After Dan333SP did it too, I looked it up. Who, whom, and that are all correct. I can't get the strike line off of the A, It just wants to be there.

Doesn't everybody tape before wrapping? It's in the rules.

I like my non-internal flattop bars' cable situation just fine. They're just barely squished into an ellipse cross section compared to more moderne flat top bars though.

I rarely go out without a mirror. My current fave is a Cat Eye bar end mirror. My previous fave was a Rhode Gear hood mounted mirror, That one just bit the dust a few days ago.
Sad!
I have no need of a Varia. Not enough traffic.

Same here. That has all changed, apparently.

Should be pointing down. But if your brake cables are adjusted for the current position, you'd need to change that. BTW, when I get a new used bike, cables are one of the first things to go.

Im down for criticism, I didnít even realize my QR was open, now I wonder if the rear break is open too.

I can't see where it's going. I see it coming out the side of the STI, but I don't see it curving back around to the righthand cable stop. Maybe it does, I just can't see it.

BTW, I run the brake cables along the front of the bars, so the rear and top are smooth on the hands. Except for the Bianchi, which has Zipp "Aero" bars, which have a flat top. For those, I run the cables under the bar.

Haven’t felt great for weeks but getting ready to head out the door. I asked my wife where we were going and she said Northeast. I asked how far and she wouldn’t tell me, just going Northeast. She did say to pack more than my normal gels. Uh oh. :foo:

bampilot06 08-26-22 07:30 AM

fixed the QR and I remember why they are are taped that way now. Has to do with packing the bike.

A cyclist was killed yesterday afternoon about a half mile from my home. She was riding on a horrible street with a stupid, 3', "bike lane" painted along the side. A guy driving a flatbed truck hit her without even realizing. She was dead at the scene and apparently it was very ugly.

Sure, stuff happens, but I can't help thinking we all (drivers, cyclists, everyone) live in a cruel and destructive society, which tolerates a very high rate of suffering in return for not much value.

You're afraid she wants to stop and do it in a soy bean field?
