Addiction 2022.2

Road Cycling ďIt is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

That's the thing, the video I saw had a medium size group of 8 or 9 riders doing a fairly tight paceline with these things on.

Turns out, the L bibs have SIGNIFICANTLY shorter legs. So short, in fact, that I cannot wear them to ride outside. Think "women's shorts" length. They're relegated to Zwfting. This is too bad, because otherwise they fit fine and do a good job keeping everything in place.

But your spouse doesn't work(for the man). Easy peasy.

Ah. Similar symptoms, different etiology.

Team Time Trialing on gravel? Sounds iffy.

Fixed a creaky FS mountain bike yesterday too. It was the pedals.

I'm hoping I'm right about the seatpost. It's the only thing that I really changed since last fall when it wasn't all creaky.

Actually, the BB replacement was because of a creak. The customer said the BB seemed "gravel-y". Turns out there was actual gravel in the frame and the dirt had been working it's way into the bearings. It was not pretty.
