Addiction 2023.2

Road Cycling “It 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.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Maybe. I'm not well acquainted with that generation of lever (5700, yes?). It's possible there's too much tension so that you're not getting the last click of the big lever before you hit the high limit screw, and it's actually already in the "trim" position for the big ring. Maybe. I was hoping someone with more bike fixing experience would help out (You know who you are).

It would make it possible to have actual leftovers more often.

my mad scientist says not enough tension. But this was just me texting him the question, not looking at the bike.

I certainly got faster in Texas, but they weren't interested in petty little things like facts, just agreeing with each other that it's impossible.

Rode again today and was planning on 30 minutes. That is what I did. It was recorded as 2 rides because I got a flat. 7 miles. Hopefully on Monday I can go again and try 45-60 minutes. The pain was a bit worse today.

Ordered 4 conti tubes since the tubes are probably dry rotted and more flats will occur and I've got no spares. I changed tube without an utterance of curse words.

Being the problem-solver that I am I came up with a solution: one of you boat people can smuggle me north of the border (and back) in a daring night crossing of St. Lawrence.

i have two first world problem maintenance questions for the brain trust

1 my freehub is getting gradually noisier, approaching angry bee territory. a few thousand miles ago it suddenly got quieter when i took the cassette and driver on and off. wondering if i should either just do that again and hope for random luck, or maybe re-lubricate it? seems like DT Swiss recommends a specific product https://wheelbuilder.com/dt-swiss-st...t-grease-20gr/ which of course i don't have handy, but could obtain. snake oil? bad idea?

2 put a new chain on sunday, and now everything just seems verrry slightly noiser. not a rubbing or grinding or scratching sound, nothing intermittent just sort of a slightly louder meshing sound in the gears. not audible over any meaningful wind or speed, but say on a slow climb or a leisurely cruise, there's an auditory awareness of the drivetrain that wasn't there before and kind of takes me out of the zone. might the new chain just need a little time to "mesh" with the old cassette, or maybe i f'd it up popping the extra links off? it did seem like the plates bent a little bin in the chain tool, but the sound is not once or twice per revolution, it's just a constant whir. old chain had ±2,300 miles, was just at .5% elongation. cassette now has 4,500 miles. dura ace 12 speed.

is it a sram chain by chance? They tend to make more noise.

No, but hummingbirds have a V02max in the neighborhood of 1200 ml/kg/min.

What is $50mn in American dollars? I know avocados can't be $25/pound.
