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

Crap. They make some fancy after-market mounts that might be better than the stock mount. I notice that my stock mount gradually slides down my seatpost, but so far no jettison event yet.

Itís the old SLR stem and bar combo that is recalled not the one that I have.

In my world, stainless on the outside makes it lifetime. We're using stainless from the thrift store, so from the 50s? 60s? It's heavy.

Yeah, the Madone and Emonda bar/stems are different. Adding the one you have would be a good stop-gap.

Having had some really bad experiences with various dentists for the last 50+ years, I am afraid to go to anyone new. Part of the anxiety I am having is because I have to see 2 specialists I have never met and nobody can recommend them for me.

Will it not work? If I ever buy an emonda I had planned on buying the same set up. I never talked to anyone at trek about it, but I donít see why it wouldnít.



I think we have had this discussion before. Iím getting old.

I went through this ďpathĒ to get to the colonial parkway. I usually walk it because itís sooooo not bike friendly. The flies were terrible this morning, so I opted to stay on the bike. I guess the bumps on the ďpathĒ combined with the rough parkway was too much for the Varia. Thank god there was no traffic, I would be pissed if it gotten ran over. I canít imagine riding without it now.

I use a mount that attaches to the seat rails, but I don't use a seat bag. Works great for me.

i donít use a saddle bag on the madone, light attached under the seat. I do find carrying everything in my pockets annoying.

FWIW I use the seatpost mount for my Varia and do NOT use a saddle bag. I find it quite liberating. I have a very small drawstring bag with spare tube/minipump that fits fine in middle jersey pocket. Added benefit is no need to switch saddle bag between bikes. YMMV.

I have never noticed a meaningful difference in quality (like, with aluminum core) cookware. I only use stainless because I don't want Teflon or similar as a cooking surface, and stainless can be easily scoured clean. I've had All-Clad, Calphalon, and Cuisinart, and in a blind test I'd never be able to tell. The things that matter are like handle comfort and whether they're the size you want.

Now, none of them is the really fancy level, but... I'd vote new bike parts. Or anything else that might bring actual enjoyment or quality of life upgrades.

In another instance of, "well, I guess that's good timing?" my LBS put a bunch of apparel on sale, including all of their in-stock Rapha. They had a maroon LS jersey that I'd been eyeing, so I swung by and picked it up, since I tore my other LS jersey yesterday. Not only did they have it at 35% off, but they had it at the old MSRP (Rapha prices, like everything, went up recently), too, so it was $15 less than even Rapha's current sale price

The speced bars are “Aeolus RSL Integrated Bar/Stem.” I have no idea what the temporary bars will be but the “Aeolus RSL Integrated Bar/Stem” will be the final when available.
