Addiction 2021.1

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

Think I'm going to zwift today. Dumpster has been ordered for tomorrow. I have a closet door to rehang. That's going to be about it today, maybe some sorting.

I might need to get a shorter stem for it, I feel like the reach might be a little long. My elbows weren’t locked straight but I didn’t have the bend that I do when I ride the C2. Also think I will swap saddles with Lily. It came with the WTB deva, but I think it’s a touch big for my non existence butt.

Took Lily onto some roads today and she handled the cars well. When she got on Centerville she took off. We were only on there for about a half mile but she was pushing 20 the whole time. She’s getting stronger, I also have secretly been raising her seat every ride. I will take some of the credit.

Toldja. The man just makes good bikes. Every time I ride mine, I think "If I'd stopped with just this bike, that would have been okay."

But don't tell Mrs. GeneJockey I said that!

I'm of two minds. Well, several minds, really. On the one hand, it's windy as all hell. On another, it's bright and sunny. On the third, I've really thought about doing more structured training which is way easier on Zwift. On the fourth, the place I use to Zwift has been taken over by the Circuit's restoration. On the 5th, I COULD finish up the build of the Circuit and do a shakedown cruise.

Too many hands.

The Red Black Rubber Nubs* have arrived. I will hold off on installing them in the brake pivot bolts until I have cabled, centered, and adjusted the brakes.

*(There was an episode of Pinky And The Brain where The Brain was building a huge tower to broadcast some hypnotic signal worldwide, but it required a Red Rubber Nub to insulate it so lightning wouldn't strike. The Red Rubber Nub wasn't in the package with the huge tower kit, but The Brain decided to build is anyway without the Red Rubber Nub. With predictable consequences)

I rode 17.5 miles in drizzle today. Started and finished in drizzle. Yep, I’m a HTFU guy.

My first impulse was to say that this is not always true, but then I couldn't think of an example to support that opinion.

Comorbidities, I think they call this.

Just wait a year for Favero to come in and cut the price in half with their spd power pedals

It was windy again so 2 of us went to Eric's hood and rode out for pizza. Not as windy over there and the pizza was good but it was my turn to buy. Probably could have got him to buy again if I cried poverty but I didn't want to be that guy. Nice ride, 45ish miles, breezy in the 60s and not too much traffic. My friend has worked out a nice route or two out there.

But don't tell Mrs. GeneJockey I said that!

Kind of how I feel. Wife made a comment today about how she hopes one day when we are at the trek store she can just surprise me with a brand new emonda. Repay me for when I bought her the domane. I told her the emonda would be nice, the madone would be nicer, but another Ritchey would be Nicest. Thinking along the lines of an Outback.

Chances of any of this happening slim to none.
