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

We all piled into one of the Ford station wagons, with rear facing seat, and went to the west coast and back. That was in 69 and I was a junior in high school. That is quite the age gap between you and your brother. We four are all within six years.

Yep. 12 years. My oldest 4 siblings were all born over 5 years, from 45-49. Then a 6 year gap before my sister, and another 2 1/2 years before me. So, the year I started 1st grade (no kindergarten in the district at that time) was my oldest brother's last year of high school.

In 1963 my dad rented a pickup truck with a cabover camper and my parents and two of my sisters travelled to Kings Canyon, Sequoia, Yosemite, and then the bay area where they had friends. My 3 older siblings didn't come and little brother wasn't born yet. I'll never forget that trip.

Cycling related. I suspect answer is nothing, but the heels on my Sidi road shoes are worn down and clearly a challenge to extricate fixing bolts. Apply shoe goo for a heel?? Comments appreciated but please don’t report me to the ASPCS.

My friend takes his to the cobbler and has rubber heels installed. If that's a screw you can probably extract it with an easy-out. Does Sidi sell replacement heels?

I can't buy a V13 stem from Canyon in the USA; unavailable. But I can ship it just about any other country.

I've purchased other brand stems with the same measurements and they DO-NOT fit the Canyon; what in the..

I remember you. Welcome back, welcome back.

Speaking of back how is your back? Mine's
Effed up.

Ours was a 1971. There was the "back" and the "way back." Fond 1970's memories.

Ghosts from the past right? Hopefully I'm a little older and will stir less up this time around . It's OK - funny enough I'm having issues where my right hip is consistently 'tight'. Probably from sitting/desk work and then the sitting position on the bike. I'm slowly easing back into riding, doing some 15mile-ish social rides; trying to get the fit on the Canyon finally dialed in instead of ignoring the issue(s).

What'd you end up doing to your back? Or.. just time itself?

No it's not. In the quasi-north we can go four straight days in the winter without seeing the sun. It's pretty miserable.

Six kids in our family, hence the '70's version of the minivan.

The only important metric is measurable precipitation over .05 inches Who cares about overcast conditions HTFU and ride.

About 2 years ago I fell, hit my head which pushed my head backwards and transferred a lot of force down my spine and apparently destroyed a disc.

My spine and vertebrae are fine but the disc probably needs to go. Burning pain on both sides from my waist down. No riding since April 2021.

If I wanted that I would have posted a precipitation map instead of what I actually posted.




Pretty crazy how in WA/OR how close the dark blue and orange areas are to each other.

I don't know how a parent can remain sane with even three kids. That's crazy.

1 I guess we'll agree to disagree

2 Probably due to mountains if I remember my geography
