Notices
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

Blah....I want to go ride tonight, but everything seems boring, beyond my current fitness level, or just too damned hot. Motivation level: Low.

I'm actually kind of glad that I didn't see this before leaving home - I would have been tempted to stay home. Instead, I just tried to be a little more conservative with rear brake and not hop too many curbs or do anything else dumb.

Silly goose. EPS is a thing but only at the top end. Habanero still designed for external cables and rim brakes.

I have the 10 speed Chorus on the Seven, at least part of it. It's the first time I've had Campagnolo anything. It's good stuff, but a little harder to get parts for and the 10 speed cassettes are limited. I like the new crankset with 48-36? and 12 speed. I'd consider it if I was putting a new bike together.

It's not the prettiest crankset, but I don't look at it often.

Got the Cervelo back!

I had cleaned it before I took it to the shop, but I think they detailed it. Looks new bike clean, so that’s super cool of them.

Looks like they added a spacer between crank arm and bb, that wasn’t there before. Not a big spacer, but def wasn’t there. Just wonder if I will notice.

In other tyre news, I just put fresh meats on the boat trailer. I should probably repack the bearings too, but maybe I'll wait 'til a wheel starts smoking.

It's going to be winter before you have this fake lake-worthy.

Speaking of tires, my Tuesday tubeless flat that sealed itself was still looking good yesterday so I topped off the sealant and pumped it up. Still had 80 PSI this AM, so I rode it on our metric today. Guess I'll keep running it until it gets the same tread disease as the tire that wifi had.

anybody have a 100/110 mm stem 6 degree drop?

I have a ritchey 120 mm I can trade if interested.

With my stem slammed all the way down the 120mm feels a little too long. Want to try a shorter one before I have the steerer tube cut.

I was thinking of that for my next build... Since I got my Merckx I am a fan. Even though its 9 speed its just frikin awesome. The bottom bracket and the hub on the rear tire spin so nice.

I installed the new tire this evening. It went on the rim easily, as had the previous. Just for gits and shiggles, though, I decided to try seating it with just the floor pump, something that I've never done. After the first couple of strokes, I didn't think it was going to happen, but then I noticed the tire filling out a bit more with each pump, despite all of the hissing. The encouraged me to pump a bit manically. The tire kept hissing, but also kept filling out until both sides finally snapped in to place at the same time - sweet!

I have a few stems laying around that might be in that range. My recent efforts to dig up spare parts haven't gone well, but I'll take a look and let you know.
