Addiction 2022.4

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

I guessed correctly then. I selected band on, choices were 31.8 or 34.9. I chose 31.8, however, I have a spare Ritchey breakaway clamp that is 31.8 mm and itís pretty big, no where near snug around the seat post. Could it be smaller?

People walk and ride horses out there. These two decided to climb up the dam, not an easy walk.

There are miles of trails, dirt roads, and rocky creek beds to cruise around on.

There are a couple small "lakes" and this is the larger one.

I had a cartridge type BB on a touring bike. We were in Kansas or someplace and it was clunking pretty bad. I had a stubbly Snap On screwdriver and I borrowed a claw hammer from the motel we went to and took it apart. The outside of the thing was worn down so I wrapped it in electrical tape and hammered it back together and it worked fine until I sold the bike.
3 of the 4 of us had some kind of BB issue on the trip.

It looked kinda like this, but not a Phil Wood.

Well that was a bloody nightmare. So I was ordering the group set piece meal. Iíve had all the parts in my basket for about a week now and everything was in stock. Even this afternoon while asking my annoying questions everything was in stock. About an hour ago, while I was checking the front derailer situation, all the front derailers went out of stock. Instantly. I said ruh roh, and started checking other items. Everything was starting to sell out.

I noticed the complete groupset was on sale for 570.00, it was 675.00 yesterday so I immediately went to buy that.
You have to select each piece of the groupset, and it tells you if itís in stock. The first time through I go to check out and now something is out stock. I re do it, and go to check out again and it happens again. Three times this happened.
Ended up with 175 mm cranks 50/34. I wanted 52/36 but it was sold out
Braze on front derailer. Iím gunna see if my LBS will let me trade it in for a band on
and a 11/32 cassette. Wanted 11/28 oh well.


With this small victory, my wife was quick to remind me that the super team wheels will have to wait a while, so unless someone lets me use a back wheel I wonít be able to put this group set on anytime soon.

You should see how I used to press fit my BB into my bmx bike back in the day.

It just involves a hammer. Once I wised up that the bearings were not spinning anymore I starting using wood, and hammering through the wood.

You ordered the medium cage RD to go with that, right?

I just had my LBS do that. But then, they also had to pull the square spindle BB that was there.

12-25, you mean? I don't think that they make an 11-25, 11sp or otherwise...

Why don't you like it, though? I don't think that I've ever used my 34t in Williamsburg - the 12-25 range is perfect.

Well, I'll be. Must be relatively new. Might have to get one of them - I do sometimes miss the 11t, what with these guads of thunder and whatnot.

On paper is doesnít sound bad but in practice I donít care for it. 11/28 just made more sense. Maybe I am not used to yet.
