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

Feel your pain. Pulled a chest wall muscle Thursday. Can't take ibuprofen though. So anxious to see how it goes today.

Cranksets don't care. The Chorus crank will be fine.

Do you know what the difference is between the 10 and 11 speed cranks? Will the old Record rings fit on the 11 crank?

I don't know the technical difference, just that it is slight enough that they are cross-compatible. As for the rings, Campy should fit Campy, as long as the BCD is the same. That may be a fit-it-to-be-sure situation though.

Anytime you hear the words "all you gotta do" from your LSS regarding fixing or changing something, you are pretty much guaranteed to become the suffering spouse.

That is all.

No ride, but I did find a free live feed for La Vuelta.

When I hear that or "it should be easy..." I always kick it back like, "oh, cool - you shouldn't have any problem with it, then!"

Of course, this is usually only said on days where I already have low expectations of nookie.

Last ride in VA today. Still dragging a bit, but took a little KOM that I was aiming at. Felt too easy to stand for long, but the previous had been in place for 5 years, so who knows. Anyway, the wide open roads have been nice, but I'm looking forward to going home and riding at <90% humidity.

Yeah I woke up at 0400 and though about doing a moonlight ride for a minute, but figured I'd wait til sunrise, but fell asleep again and just woke up and it's too hot to start a ride now

Funny how it's always "all YOU gotta do", and never "all I gotta do"

It may not be necessary but if it bothers you, change it. New fresh oil can't hurt anything.

I always heard that argument with higher mileage automatics. That the extra material in the oil provided friction. But What would that do to the bushings and bearings?

even if/when the vaccines are approved they will still say it's a rubber stamp. Conspiracies everywhere. Can't be trusted.
