Addiction LXXVIII

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

That is so funny, I do, too. I make sure everything is ready to go. When I get up, I turn on the espresso machine to heat up before I do anything else.

We got it for The Mandalorian.

As for discs on the tri bike, any place where I'd want discs I probably don't want the tri bike anyway.

I have a cup system. If the cups are upside down, it's ready for the morning. If they're not upside down when I'm wrapping up for the night, I know to take care of whatever before going to bed.

Also, highly recommend that you get a timer/smart outlet - have the machine wake up at least a half hour before you do.

This is key, but 30 min is too long for freshness.

Oh, no - this isn't to brew - it's to pre-heat the machine so that it's ready to brew. Consistency of temp is pretty important with espresso, so you want the heat to spread from the boiler and all the way through the grouphead before you start pulling shots.

The tension and trueness of the wheel is indeed off a bit, so my best guess is that's WHY the sounds are happening. I suppose I should put a tiny drop of oil at each junction for now.

Comments??
True it up and if the noise is still there then lube it. Wheels flex a bit when riding, especially when you drope the hamer. I've had creaks and squeaks, clicks, pings, you name it.

The first things I consume every day are water and prednisone.

I found my disc bike way to irritating with the occasional rotor ping.
