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

Most one-sided, front-of-knee issues in runners and cyclists are patella tracking problems caused by a strength imbalance between the medial and lateral knee extensors. That responds to rest, NSAIs, and strengthening exercises. Go to a good sports med clinic and see if I’m right.

I got diagnosed with that last year. I just don’t remember which knee was bothering me last year. Also, last year the pain was only on the bike. You are probably right though.

Today it took me a total of 3 hours to wax the ritchey chain. 3 hours from the time I took it off and put it back on.


If I had the funds to buy 3 spare chains for each bike, I would probably be more onboard, but having no spares at the moment, not worth it too me.
Oh?

TRP mechanical discs (calipers) are one of the few (if only ?) mechanical disc brake systems that feature two piston movement

they perform better than most of the other mechanical systems (if not all) and are easy to set up and adjust ; 3mm hex adjusts pads in and out

still not as good as a quality hydraulic system - but still fairly good

The pain wasn’t consistent enough for me to give it much thought,
but today it hurt most of day. I can feel it now as I lay in bed.

The pain is prolly only about a 4 out of 10, but I wonder what it could be.
I am neither a doctor, nor do I play one on tv. The thing that finally fixed my problem knee was anti-inflam gel, rubbed on the outside. Practically an overnight sensation.

And the beat rain goes on. I have only been in these parts for 14 years, but this rainy season we're having is from another age. I'm sure it used to be like this when there were still big trees covering the land. It was like this in southern Belize, but southern Belize is rainforest. And it's expected. This is just weird wild stuff. I for one, am ready for it to end. Anytime it's ready. It's been raining steadily since 6 this evening. Thunder rolls through every half hour or so. And it's been raining daily, in the afternoon and evening, since early July.

Are you suggesting pulling on the tail as I shift and while it’s tight in the Dr? Have not done that, but can. Or did you mean do something else?
wth

any progress ?

shifter ok ?

could it be the shifter is pushing back on that wild looking sport coat you were considering?

I'm a big fan of Wright architecture - have some books and also toured two of his houses in western PA ( Fallingwater and Kentuck Knob ('Hagan house') )

in future hope to check our more Wright structures in the US

Nice - Cervelo released a new Soloist. More aero than the R5, lighter than the S5. 34mm tire clearance. PF BB. Cable routing similar to some Trek models - external, but tucked under the stem, instead of through it, and then in to the HT.
