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

Big John, I feel like an idiot. So I took a quick look at the cervelo today, and it was one of the cables causing the problem. It was rubbing again the frame in a way that felt like the head set was stuck, and it was also behind the noise I was hearing when I turned the bars.

Play is still there.

But, guys.....


I mean, the 7410 crank is The Most Beautiful Crankset Ever, so how can I not?
I like my cranks to be more shiny.

I have seen them polished. These get worn fairly often, right where the "Dura Ace" is, and some folks will strip the anodizing off and polish them on the buffing wheel. I was pleasantly surprised - especially for the price I paid - to find these looking as good. The NDS is even better.

A Lynskey, size large frame set just popped up in my area for 1,000.00. With the litespeed just about done, it’s time for another project.

HA!

That's not how my Muse works. I already have the Litespeed, so another Ti bike would be redundant. It's why I find myself pondering selling the Lotus Classique - it's the SECOND 1982 Lotus with Shimano kit in my collection.

The Battaglin has a Phil Wood in 102 with Campy tapers, and the Ritchey has one in 103 with JIS tapers. The Litespeed's getting the BB-7410 that came with the crank. I don't feel anything untoward.

I can coexist in a world that has wordle. You should try that approach. Better to wear slippers than carpet the world. I'm done for the day here. I have work to do around the house.

Are you asking if both you AND orange peels are thicker, or if it's only you that's thicker?
