Addiction 2021.3

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

this is a real pain scale. I live in 4-7 since last September. At least I'm still awesome. Which is nice.

The moment park tool informs you, you need a special tool to take you crank arm off. You don’t have the special tool, and said special tool cost 15.00. SMH.

Looks like trek has the tool in stock so will pick it up tomorrow.

Park tool video shows just putting grease on the spindle, I am assuming I put grease on the bearings.

But my BB has the caps on either side, so I am not sure I will even see my bearings once I pull the arm.

I've got a colleague that rides with a group like that.

His ability to be out of the house before 5am consistently is big reason why he's fast and I'm not.

Def. Louder when the right foot is pushing down, and the more force the louder it is.

Will investigate further tomorrow.

New stem height felt fine but I think I need a shorter stem now.
What kind of pedals do you have?

​​​​​​A thin film on the bearings is nice, just so they don't stick to other metal parts - you don't want to have to get out the torch to take things apart again in a couple years, after a bunch of rain rides.

Depending on how hard-core you are, this might be of interest.

What special tool? Can you link a pic of the BB or the Park video?

Careful selection of parents helps quite a bit, too.

Not me personally, but yes. Penetrating oil, a little heat, time, and one of these.

I ask if pain present, is it mild, moderate, or severe. The 0-10 score might be useful in research but not in my daily practice.
