The wife and I are nightly wine-ers. She likes cheap Pinot Grigio. I like dark reds. Maintaining stock is mandatory.

I had a slice with sausage, bell peppers, and mushrooms with an orange soda in the middle of our ride.

Just found out my SIL has covid. She was vaccinated in March so I assume it will be mild.

My older brother has prostate cancer and is having surgery Thursday. I'm having my discogram consultation on Thursday morning. Sigh.

Another productive day. I did more today than DougRNS does in three days, probably.

If they're of the above quality this would be more fitting:

Thanks! I finally got a proper bike fit. Starting with the shoes. My current shoes were two sizes too big, so I picked up these. The red ones were on sale the blue ones were not.

So what ever I thought I knew about how I am suppose to fit on a bike was pretty much wrong. The 58 madone was almost too small for me. Paid for the SLR stem and SLR bars but holding off on officially ordering them until I figure out what size I want to go with.

First glance I feel like I want a 90 stem. Currently the bike has a 100. The fitter thinks I coukd/ should go longer than 100. The SLR stem also comes in 7 degrees or 15 degrees. I kind of want the 15 but that might be too extreme. Also have to figure out how wide bars I want. Currently they are 44 and they feel way to wide.


First bike ride was really nice. Not sure if it’s the new shoes, new set up, or the bike but pedaling felt effortless. Once she got going she just glided forward. First impressions I am very happy with it.

Setting up the kickr now, got the wife’s cassette on it. It connected to my phone but now will not update??? That keeps failing. I unplugged it for now will try again tomorrow.

For you zwift riders, if my wife and I both want to use it is there a way to set up under one account? or do we have to have two separate memberships?

Oh my, the Allez Opi Omi lady is making a a court appearance Thursday.

Sure. The thing is, I presume you're not both the same height and weight? So either she'll be riding like a taller, heavier rider, and not going very fast, because of low w/kg, OR you'll be riding like a shorter, lighter rider and going real fast because of high w/kg. I think if you start changing your height and weight too much, Zwift might ding you for weight and/or height doping. I mean, if you raced with her profile settings, you'd be cheating.

My alcohol supply is almost always limited to the wine I am drinking that night.

Nice looking Bike!
Regarding Zwift, they of course prefer you have 2 separate accounts for the reasons genejockey mentioned. There has been quite a few requests for a 'family' membership though.

I have zero tolerance for deer, that “cute Bambi” **** is meaningless when you’ve lived in deer country long enough. They are a hazard in multiple ways.
