Well, you can see how sturdy the braze-on is. THAT'S not gonna flex.

Saturday was National Train Day and not one post from LesterOfPuppets. Too busy watching baseball. Sad.

My 2020 Domane has the R7000 FD and has that same screw. You only screw it in until it touches the seat tube, and it is to stabilize the FD during shifting. My Domane did not have the little plate on the seat tube, and the screw was not in enough to tighten anything. The plate is only needed on CF frames, and is to keep the screw from damaging the frame.

I ended up adding the plate the screwing the screw in as designed. On the other hand, Trek did not believe it was required apparently. My guess is that you will be fine without it.

I spent a couple hours last night imagining how I'd cobble together a support bracket for it. In the end, it'll work well, or it won't. I suppose I could try going back to the 7410 derailleur, if need be... Not sure about cable pull and all that.

Mrs. GeneJockey, who is an intermediate social needs introvert, has long been really good on the phone. We used to joke she could talk for 10 minutes to a wrong number. As she puts it, "I give good phone."

I wouldn't worry about it. Like I said, Trek doesn't worry about it on their carbon bikes it seems. My FD shifted pretty good, but I was just looking for that last little bit of "click," but I also tinker with stuff and when I saw it was missing I figured I could spend $3 for the missing part.

My RHR is still elevated (53bpm :eek:) from being sick the other week, so I'll try to limit myself to two. :D

I was monitoring BP back in October/November. I started out trying to get each morning's check in before my first swig of coffee, which meant I was starting a minute or two after sitting down, and the results were higher than I'd like, both BP and HR. I started testing a second time 5 minutes later and both BP and HR were lower. Then I decided to test the effect of coffee, and checked at 0, 20 minutes, and 60 minutes after drinking a big cup of strong black coffee. About 3 bpm higher HR, and no change in BP. I still get the increased alertness and defogging of the mind.

My crankset and BB have been delivered!!

And nobody's gonna be home for another 4+ hours. Now I'm gonna worry about Porch Pirates for the rest of the day!!!

…you could have one normal cup in the morning and then play with it, right?

"Hey, here's that super cool thing that you've been waiting on - you can play with it tomorrow."

Pfffft.

I mean, I suppose that I could do a French press in the morning, but that's no fun and it takes longer than I'd like.

Still don't have my hands on it but, in the last half hour, I've seen the freight carrier stop on my block for more than five minutes, leave, and then drive by an additional three times. :foo:

Holy crap. I'd be out there with a red flag.

I celebrated in my own way, by riding a bicycle across train tracks, light rail tracks AND streetcar tracks.

:bday:

Wondering why Rapha’s website charged me $0.40 in sales tax. At 8% in the city it seems like it should have been $4.40.

Mojo31 05-09-22 03:03 PM

Looks pretty badass WhyFi. I have no idea what it is or what it does.

My R7000 braze on derailleur has nothing behind the support screw on my Holdsworth.

It shifts great.

If everything goes according to plan, tomorrow should be a really good day :innocent:

Track cycling?
