Addiction LXXIX

Notices
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

It seems I should take the bike, saddle, and the brifter covers to the bike store and have them put the covers on when they do the cables? Then wrap the bars after everything else is done?
Nuh-uh.

For the record, I trued a rotor earlier today. I used a crescent wrench. It was a right-handed crescent wrench.

What kinda Brifters? Not Shimano or Campagnolo, because you can, and I have, do either on the bar. Shimano 7800 and below, you can do while recabling, but they don't need to come off the bar.

@Velo Vol. Note the abundant amount of rainfall, resulting in full reservoirs for the good citizens of the Great state of Georgia.

This is an improvement over priors, but if you want to go retro, how about going all the way?

This, so they logically should be replaced while re-cabling.

Not as abundant as in the Tennessee Valley, creating lush green August lawns.

I call your attention to your original assertion:

Replace brifter covers (I think you have to remove them from the bars to do this?)

Where are my Addiction machinists? I want an espresso dosing cup, but I can't bring myself to pay 40 bucks for a stainless steel cup that's nothing special other than a 58mm OD and a little lip for the filter to rest upon.

Mind you, I really enjoy working on my bikes. In fact it was just last month I replaced the bar, cables and housing, cassette, and rear derailleur on my Battaglin. Took it out for a spin this afternoon whne the air cleared up enough, and MAN!!!! Is it a sweet bike!
