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

that doesn't change the fact that your post was all complaining and no enjoying.

The 7 hours was not previously submitted as evidence. I'll strike the HTFU comment.

I will admonish you to be more specific in the future.

Need some advice.

The clicking noise that I experienced with the C2 on hills (low cadence high torque) has developed into a constant knocking noise at all times. Reminds me of an engine with a bent piston rod.
I had to get out of the saddle today to charge up a tiny mountain and for the rest of the ride the knocking got worse.

I stopped multiple times to make sure nothing felt loose (crank arm, seat, pedals, rear wheel, bars etc…..)
Everything felt tight with two exceptions. I am running the old pedals and they have more play than my new pedals. Have always been this way though. And my headset developed a tiny amount of play during the ride.

My plan is to re torque everything down, and swap pedals but if that doesn’t solve the noise any recommendations?

Thanks.

The other day, on an early morning ride, I had a flyby with a pretty fast guy that occasionally rides with my group. Afterwards, he reached out and invited me out to a fast kids ride that happens weekly at the crack o' dawn. I looked at his ride and saw that they averaged 24+ on the course. I've been curious about this ride, and I'll probably take him up on it some time this summer (there is a bit of a conflict as it takes place the morning after my regular group ride night), but jeezuz do I anticipate some pain before being spit out the back.

It was still good. I said without the burning eyes, and burning skin, it would be great.

Not much enjoyment derived from a government document sitting in the drawer.

Start there and if it persists, call an exorcist.

Seriously, though, these can be a pain. Check all of the stuff that you've mentioned. Tighten chain ring bolts. Make sure it's not the FD cable end knocking the crank arm, etc. If it's still there, then pull the crankset and clean/re-lube, etc.

WTF? If a vehicle could do that to the bridge, it had to have had some serious preexisting issues.

Put a trailer hitch on the Honda so you can haul your lawn tractor, then tour the USofA taking odd jobs along the way, a la Route 66 (but all the odd jobs being lawn mowing gigs).

Set a new 5 s power number this morning, sprinting from a traffic signal. It’s pitifully puny, but it’s nice to know some things can still improve in the senium.

You are not supposed to leave it sitting in the drawer. Take it out once in a while and explore!

Our kids have had passports for 20 years. They took their first trip out of the country when they were 5 and 3. Now they are comfortable traveling anywhere in the world, alone or with others.

Sounds like you need to get out more.
