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

Well, you can see how sturdy the braze-on is. THAT'S not gonna flex.

Saturday was National Train Day and not one post from LesterOfPuppets. Too busy watching baseball. Sad.

The plate is only needed on CF frames, and is to keep the screw from damaging the frame.

I ended up adding the plate the screwing the screw in as designed. On the other hand, Trek did not believe it was required apparently. My guess is that you will be fine without it.
I spent a couple hours last night imagining how I'd cobble together a support bracket for it. In the end, it'll work well, or it won't. I suppose I could try going back to the 7410 derailleur, if need be... Not sure about cable pull and all that.

Mrs. GeneJockey, who is an intermediate social needs introvert, has long been really good on the phone. We used to joke she could talk for 10 minutes to a wrong number. As she puts it, "I give good phone."

I wouldn't worry about it. Like I said, Trek doesn't worry about it on their carbon bikes it seems. My FD shifted pretty good, but I was just looking for that last little bit of "click," but I also tinker with stuff and when I saw it was missing I figured I could spend $3 for the missing part.

I was monitoring BP back in October/November.

I started testing a second time 5 minutes later and both BP and HR were lower. Then I decided to test the effect of coffee, and checked at 0, 20 minutes, and 60 minutes after drinking a big cup of strong black coffee. About 3 bpm higher HR, and no change in BP. I still get the increased alertness and defogging of the mind.

…you could have one normal cup in the morning and then play with it, right?

Pfffft.

I mean, I suppose that I could do a French press in the morning, but that's no fun and it takes longer than I'd like.

Still don't have my hands on it but, in the last half hour, I've seen the freight carrier stop on my block for more than five minutes, leave, and then drive by an additional three times.

Holy crap. I'd be out there with a red flag.

I celebrated in my own way, by riding a bicycle across train tracks, light rail tracks AND streetcar tracks.

Wondering why Rapha’s website charged me $0.40 in sales tax. At 8% in the city it seems like it should have been $4.40.

My R7000 braze on derailleur has nothing behind the support screw on my Holdsworth.

It shifts great.
