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

Tennessee has a functional grid. Texas does not. What does Tennessee have that's that dumb?

I saw today that the 12 speed Ultegra Di2 disc groupsets are now available and in stock for about $2600. Worth it over R7000 105?

The State Capitol (as seen during the Civil War).

Nobody answered my lube question, this question better be ignored.












Will the weight savings help you complete more strava challenges?

You already know the answer. A little more saved you the sight of rust on a chain.

Lube questions never end well. I couldn't even tell if your routine was parody; my chains are lucky to get some oil squirted on every few weeks.

By wiping aggressively after lubing kept my drive chain clean, but it might be clean because I inadvertently wiped all the lube away.

Anyways I just relubed and ran the chain through cloth for a couple rotations . I can still see lube on the chain so I will try it this way.


As far as Mojo, Want Vs Need. Do you need a new drive train prolly not, but you do have the means to pay for one.

Go for it.

I did. You can even use the wax on your legs.

I don’t care about Strava challenges. They just help motivate me to get off the couch.

Chain lube rules are as follows:

1) Check every 100-200 miles, lube as needed.

2) Wipe off every now and then, clean once in a while.

3) Otherwise, don't worry about it.

You can't wipe away the lube that went into the links (where it is supposed to be anyway).

I was bummed that the R7000 105 rim brake group set was 645.00 dollars. 2600 sounds much worse.
