Addiction 2022.3

Notices
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

It would be nice if they did a software update to address this. My garmin shows different colors, orange, red and green. It would be nice orange for approaching, red for collision or close pass, green for clear. Not sure if they could do that or not.

Now that I have a varia I ralrely look over my shoulder at cars approaching. I donít imagine it would do much good. Iíd prolly end up diving off the side of the road for no reason. Thatís a lot of bike replacements.

I really dig the bontrager blender system. I picked up another bontrager stem yesterday for the ritchey. Iím starting to become a vain cyclist I guess. I canít stand having mounts on my handle bars. It looks awful.
The blender system just makes everything look pretty.

Speaking of stems, on yesterday's ride I noticed a fellow rider's stem was awfully big and boxy and angular. I wondered if it had a trap door and could double as a bento box. I did not catch the brand/model.

Probably carbon, the oversized ones usually are.

You know I am yanking your chain. I would not cut it until/unless you are 100% confident in the fit and also have no plans to sell it.

I get it. I like the computer mounts on my bikes, too.

On my MTB, I don't like the idea of the mount being ahead of the bars, and more exposed to impact. This mount is a spacer under the stem cap that puts the computer over the stem.

With World Champs coming up, the feeds are filled with rad bike checks. I like how Hanna Otto's featured used cranks and cassette (probably lighter that way )

still 60+ psi in the am, added a few pumps and had a very nice 20 miles this AM before work. no sign of any additional sealant oozing out of the wound!

Completely agree on the Blendr system, not only in front but also in back. The only thing I have that looks bolted on is the Varia and the speed sensor around the back axle.

I also like the downtube storage. If that bent guy sees me walking, I'll be the subject of his ridicule even though I have all the usual survival gear. Like having no bag.

Not a fan of that.

Nor am I a fan of the "stanced" and "bagged" looks at all.
