An unvaccinated friend of my wife is currently intubated and has been for over a week now. Anyway, she would get the vaccination because it wasn't "approved" yet. Now, her family is begging the docs to give ivermectin. :rolleyes:

I just got a message from a patient citing ONE study on Ivermectin and asking me to write him a script.

Not gonna do it. Wouldn't be prudent. Not at this juncture.

I know there may be a fine line between cutting edge and quackery, but I am a fairly mainstream physician/internist and it's too soon to be jumping on this bandwagon.

I just posted in there yesterday about changing the manual transmission fluid. The owner's manual says change at 30K and never again. So I am at 190K and last change was 160K ago. Works fine. But apparently that may not be correct?

I've read that the CVT fluid in the Fit never wants to be changed. Honda did it at 30,000 km, while it was still on warranty. 'I've also read that, due to high ambient temps all year, we need to change the motor oil every 4-6,000 miles. While on warranty, they did it every 3.000. That seems a little excessive. I should check Fit forums. Can't say as I've ever been there.

Interesting that they find Ivermectin to be safer than the vaccine.

New aero haircut. Not the best job because Andre, the guy who usually cuts my hair, just went back to Italy for vacation. But it will do.

Ironic, isn't it, that they won't put the vaccine in their bodies because it's not "safe," but they will put Ivermectin, hydroxychloroquine and who knows what into their bodies even though it may not be safe.

Edit: Seeds beat me.

I thought HCQ was the MEDICAL MIRACLE OF THE CENTURY!! Not so?

Sad!

Looks like the switch the wheels out though on both the filante slr, and the zero sl. They throw shimano rs wheels on it for some reason, will have to ask.

RS what? Cheap ones? Frankly, I wish that cheap (aka placeholder) wheels were a more readily available option on complete bikes, as long as the pricing difference is commensurate. Placeholder wheels seem to go away above $3k or so, and I think thasashame.

They should produce a show similar to Judge Judy, but with a doctor telling crazy people how to treat themselves in unorthodox ways.

Right behind internal sunshine and disinfectant injections.

I'll let you know. I started taking it yesterday for my hemorrhoids, headaches, and heart issues.

You may be on to something - take it to get fit after Covid!

It does bother me that these ISPs with special wedges and parts could render a frame completely useless if a small plastic piece broke or got lost.

Yup. Today is not tomorrow, and no telling when theyíll decide it isnít worth it anymore. Iíll put up with that for a fast tri bike, but not for anything else.

Also, the fancy seatpost binders are too finicky.

I havenít seen anything to indicate 2022 will be any better.

I know you guys don't run this far south, but if you ever have a need in Texas/Louisiana, I have a real good friend who is a FELA/ICCTA/RR guy. We've handled 5 seven figure cases together in the federal courts.

Did you cut your own hair?

There's a not insignificant market for "the secrets that real doctors won't tell you."

While I hear you, keep in mind that he's currently riding a carbon Cervelo with hydro disc brakes and adequate clearance for modern tires - it's not like he's really behind the times, in terms of bike trends. I see this less as a tangible upgrade and more as a lustful upgrade, so I personally wouldn't sell myself short in the process. I wouldn't want to run the risk of not properly scratching the itch and turning it in to a buy-twice kind of deal.

That's my thought as well. Plus, Bam is young and has time.

Now, if he were to crash again and break the bike, we might be looking at a different situation.

The right dream bike is out there for him. It may just take some time to find and/or some travel or shipping.

I have trimmed it in the past.

Rs 171. Basically an updated version of what came with the C2.

The Zero is suppose to come with Wilier carbon wheels, also interesting on the Filante SlR they switched the wheels to fulcrum 500 but are still asking the original price.

Still waiting to hear back from wrench science. I would do the zero Sl which is 5600.00. Then ask what kind of discount I could get if I put reynold assualts plus a stages ultegra power meter on it. From what Iím calculating I would still have money left over for a wahoo kickr core, and a wahoo element or roam.

Also considering the canyon ultimate CF SLX 8. The reviews are hard to pass up, just wish the brake cables were hidden.

At that point Iíd be tempted to just sit out. My issue now is wanting a backup bike thatís matched, technologically, to the primary, but even Iím sitting out until things stabilize more.

Hell I still want a Series X, but not until I can walk into BB and pick it up off the shelf.
