I spent so much time planning my 45 mile ride that I didn't have time for it. Got out for a nice 32 miler instead.

And Velo Vol says that I don't look Asian enough. Sheesh.

Fact, the TP industry knows pretty well how much TP to make in a year and most of our paper is made here in the USA. It's a simple population and poop formula which doesn't change with the CV unless people start using it for things for which it's not intended which is fairly unlikely. As a result, the TP shortage is of our own making and not rational. The TP makers won't make more because there is no need. The current problem comes in delivery as hoarders have stripped the shelves.

Now, paper towels is a whole other problem because we've become cleaners like never before. :rolleyes:

I see you too watch Sunday Morning, always a great way to start a day.

I wanted a tail wind on the way back but didn't have any regular loops that long in that direction.

I'd tell you, but then I'd have to kill you.

Guys, I keep mixing the order, is the below correct order to adjust spacers?

- remove top cap,
- loosen compression plug
- loosen stem
- swap spacers
- re do compression plug
- tighten stem and
- tighten the top cap

right?

Tighten the top cap first then tighten stem bolts.

kissTheApex 04-05-20 12:52 PM

Should be ok but key is adjust headset bearings so itís smooth but no extra play with the compression plug.

Oh, and are we talking about a carbon steerer? If not, you can leave the compression plug alone.
