In the meantime the weather prediction for Saturday is for rain. Hmm. I can't make Sunday but you folks can always ride on Sundah. Or the weather gods might change their mind. And/or we can always ride (again) later in the spring but preferably before M'morial Day. Why do they hold a holiday in honor of an eel?

I see you are confused. Let me explain. Memorial isn't the same as My Moray Eel. It is instead a celebration of the Morel ("Morial", in Middle English), that most desirable of the ephemeral funghi gathered in the wild at this time of year.

Sounds like fun if the weather holds. Can I qualify with early 90s lugged steel, even if it's got indexed shifting (and if I have to mix spandex with wool)?

Is that the same place as Khazad-dm? So mithril was actually a fungus? Yes, I am confused.

So far, do I read that right, forty percent change of rain, but relatively low wind. 7 to 9 mph. Sounds typical.
I can't tell you how many times last year during fishing season the weather would be ideal all through the week, and then it rained on Saturday when all the guys could get together. At least a half dozen times, if not more.

Well, let's keep an eye on it and see what transpires.

BTW, I mentioned somewhere up in this thread....beer. Is anyone interested in or counting on a cold beer after the ride? I ask because, well, I know some of us will be driving. And I'm not too likely to imbibe. But I'll be happy to bring a cooler with some cold brews if anyone thinks that sounds good. But you'll have to give me some pointers on selection. I'm not really beer-savvy.

Nice. Like others here, I'm somewhat envious as I have around 12 years before I plan to retire. Only today I was looking at my projected retirement income.

In other news, we are within spitting distance of paying off our mortgage. It'll be gone before month's end if things work as planned.

I really hate to say this, but we still have not made a final decision on whether we are coming up. If we decide to to the ride, it's going to be a last minute decision.

Looking on the bright side, that also means you're twelve years younger than people who are that much older than you.

That's got to count for something.

Bob, I too want to chime in with your FiL. As he's been placed into hospice, prospects are dim. I hope that when his time comes, it is with dignity and with loved ones near. At least for me, putting thoughts into words on end of life issues and the topic of death are exceedingly difficult...

Good point. My wife quit work in July 2013 since we don't really need two incomes and, at this point, retiring at 60 just looks like the right time for me. If I wait an additional two years, the amount of retirement income would go up around 17-18% which would be nice, but then there is all that time I will never get back. Of course, in just a little over a year my annual leave will be increasing from 4 weeks to a little over 5 weeks (208 hours to be exact), so maybe I'll feel less apt to want to retire with all that vacation time accruing. Nah, never mind: It's looking like 12 years.

Weather Underground is saying 65% chance. The weather channel still says 10%.

My eye sight If, when the sun comes up (or sets), and the grass is covered with dew, one can bet it will not rain for the next 12 or so hours. Not 100%, but very close. If rain starts before 7AM it (usually) will stop by 11 AM. "When the wind is from the South it blows the flies to the fishes mouth. When the wind is from the West, then the weather is truly best.

Not that I know what I'm talking about, but I don't put much stock in forecasts further than 4 or 5 days out.

@Ed., I like your approach to weather forecasting in New England. Sometimes trusting it more than 24 hours out can be risky. Case in point, on Tuesday evening NOAA forecast "less than a 1/2 inch of snow and sleet overnight." Woke up the next morning to 4-5" of snow and a 1/2" of solid ice on the driveway and roads.

FWIIW, NOAA predicts this for Friday in Dennis.

I'm still expecting to make it to the ride. I have a request to make of anyone else who might be coming: as Pastor Bob, Top, and a few others may know, I've been working for a while on a 144 bcd triplizer chainring for Campagnolo cranks, to go along with the 122 bcd Stronglight triplizers and 37-tooth conventional rings that I've been selling (albeit in small numbers) for the past few months. Anyway, I now have a working prototype, patterned after a TA ring that Pastor Bob kindly loaned to me. I haven't road-tested the prototype yet, but it fits perfectly on a circa-1982 Campagnolo Strada crankarm, also courtesy of Pastor Bob.

But here's the thing: I've been told by someone who should know that the "ledges" on 144 bcd Gran Sport cranks--which fit into curved cutouts on the triplizer ring (there are some photos of the prototype ring on the blog section of my web site, Red Clover Components - Home) are a little beefier than those on Record and Super Record cranks. The same, he thought, is also true of 144 bcd Sugino cranks. As a result, the original TA triplizers (which have been out of production for some years now) supposedly didn't quite fit the GS or Sugino cranks, even though the bcd was the same.

I would really like to be sure that the cutouts are sized to fit GS and Sugino rings before I go ahead with a small production run of 30 or so rings. Does anybody have a 144 Sugino or Campagnolo Gran Sport arm they could bring to the meet-up on the Cape? I could just check the fit on the crankarm and hand it back. I would like to avoid having to go on ebay to buy crankarms that I'll never use otherwise. I've never actually been a big fan of Campy cranks--most of the ones I've seen have been cracked, it seems like.

Anyway, I hope that request doesn't seem too mercenary. Looking forward to the ride no matter what the weather decides to do.
JV

Jon,

This is a great start and it has been my privilege to participate in a small way to this project. The prototype looks as if it will get the job done nicely.

Also, I need to give credit to our old C&V friend @cudak888 for the Campy cranks I sent to Jon. Kurt gave them to me when I was last in Miami. Since I had never put them to use and Jon needed a set for this very important project, I guessed Kurt would not mind me passing them along. Thanks @cudak888 for your generosity and we miss you here on C&V.



Do you think just widening and enlarging the cutouts for the crank arm ledges might accommodate the other varieties of 144bcd cranks?

I'm sorry I'm going to miss this ride. I guess we will need an excuse to meet-up again and do our own duo-ride. At some point I'll need to head to Barnet, VT on church related business which will not take much time. Maybe at that point we can connect.
