I like what I've heard from Greta Van Fleet but they do seem very derivative of Zeppelin. I would welcome new bands playing music in the style I like.:50:

I'll listen to just about anything, once. I listen to 2 local public radio stations and often hear stuff I've never heard before, both new and old. One station plays a lot of local bands which can be very interesting, or it can be crap.
Regular commercial radio is usually the same thing over and over and they rarely have anything new. If they do have something new they play it every hour. Or the "classic rock" stations never have anything new.

Inherited this from my dad. It has an inscription and must have been a present from my mom shortly after I was born.

Sadly neither will produce warmth next week.

Never heard of it

They assemble in Los Angeles, but I believe they use a modified ETA Unitas movement that they call Cal1003.

I also have an RGM, but not their in-house movement. Mine has an ETA movement. .

Neither is brass Souza marches performed by the Knoxville Community Band.

Brass never goes out of style!

That would explain the sub seconds at 6:00 in wrist watches. Obviously the automatic is an import. I actually own several of each of the 4 grades of autowind watches designed and built in the US - Elgin's "Bumper" automatics, and their "Durabalance" automatics.

Wow, crazy Canyon frame. Full rigid is back!!! Next thing you know they'll put 26" wheels on it :)

It’s another wet and raw morning. Even so, will try to do some real miles this morning.

Right, maybe 1-2x monthly for true gravel. I could honestly probably get long just fine with a Caledonia for the types I ride. Only the occasional muddy mess.

I planned to later on. Missed my fake miles yesterday due to hives/dr visit

For that matter, why not try a race, or at least some face-melting group rides, on the Madone before shelling out on the Emonda?

Agree with this statement. I donít race though- donít like it. Thatís why Iím considering a move to 1 bike. Revolt sits on the shelf 99.999 percent of the time

Just started Flomax last night at PCP’s suggestion. This may not be the drug for me.

Cervelo can only go up to 32, I thought it could go higher but I was wrong. Plus the cervelo feels to small for me.

The madone, I am too worried I will crash it.

If I donít have the emonda by the spring I will just race the cervelo.

Marching band brass is unpleasantly noisy to me, a turnoff. Ugh! I like the marching part but not the brass noise. I much prefer the drum line.

I feel like I've kind of fallen out of love with the "beater" idea. If a given bike isn't that nice, I just don't want to ride it, even if it has slightly different functional capacity.

I would probably ride more gravel if the Haanjo was nicer. Replacing the Haanjo with a nice gravel bike, on top of the R3, would cost quite a bit of coin for something that probably wouldn't see more that 1-2k miles per year, though. That makes a one-bike solution, with an Aspero (or similar racy gravel) and a second wheelset, a little more attractive. It would also free up a roster spot for a bike with a different niche: fattie, MTB, cruiser, whatever.

At this point, group rides give me enough of an outlet for competitive urges. That may change and I may pin on a number eventually, but I'll cross that bridge if I come to it.

The Revolt has been ridden maybe 15 times this year. I just canít get the fit right and itís not that fun to ride unless things get gnarly. The on road feel is good-hum.

The Aspero or even 3T Exploro are basically road bikes with big wheel clearance. Thatís appealing.

Yah, the other thing for me is most of the mass start rides I do have a lot of dirt, and while the R3 is great, Iíd prefer disc brakes so as not trash my carbon rims.
