You just let your ass slide off the saddle and Ted Shred with your taint when you want to stop.

Yeah there was one just a couple months ago going down Venice to the beach. The plan is to ultimately become weekly.

That's not surprising due to what eBarf fees have risen to. If mine aren't 10% they are very close. Then there's PayPal fees..................

if you're trying to "train" with other people, then there's most of your problem. of course you need to take a step back from time to time and make sure that you're enjoying yourself as well.

just not feeling like I'm getting anywhere. that, and team rides have been bumming me out. everyone is blinded by the illusion of amateur racing glory to the point that nobody is willing to work together... on a TEAM RIDE. what bums me out the most is the fact that i had to scold everyone yesterday mid-ride for riding sketchy (not pointing out huge branches in the road at 25mph) and not working together. that's not me, man! it pains me to be that guy.

today i found out my cheapo $60 shorts are coming apart at the seams.

Scrodzilla 06-24-13 08:34 AM

Today it's hot as Satan's balls slathered in Sriracha at the shop because someone decided to steal the central air conditioning unit from outside the building. They unbolted it right from the ground. It must have taken six guys to put that thing in the back of a truck. Mother****ers.

Damn, that sucks a lot! Copper isn't even worth as much as it used to be but I guess jerks will steal anything that isn't, err, is bolted to the ground.

just get square taper campy cranksets. they are balleur, and even more so when you mix them with current gen campy.

Today I'm enjoying my new to me central air.

But, srsly, that blows... Or rather it doesn't...

Scrodzilla 06-24-13 08:52 AM

The funniest part is that it's the second time its happened. :lol:

Actually, it gives me a perfectly good excuse to close and spend the day floating around in the ocean with a beer in my hand. as soon as the morning mail pickup gets here, I'm gone.

That sort of thing happens a lot around here, especially with window units. It's not funny when it's some elderly person who could actually die from the heat.

I thought only certain year Campy cranks used the 144 BCD. I have some strada crankarms (not sure if Record, or what) that use a 130 BCD and I have a couple Sugino rings on them right now.

Vintage Campy and Sugino road cranks in the 1970s all used 144mm BCD chainrings. Also, older Campy and Sugino track cranks are 151mm BCD. I have both on my vintage bikes.

I suppose I should have clarified what I meant by "older"... I am thinking of the square taper 10 speed cranksets, which I believe have a 135mm BCD.

As far as I know, you can get either English or Italian BB cups for the new 2011 Power Torque cranks as well as the 2010 Ultra Torque cranks. I was thinking of doing the same with my Ciocc, but just decided to stick with what I got for now.

hockeyteeth 06-24-13 11:10 AM

Dang, guess my recollection was probably wrong on my crankset BCD. I'll have to measure them some time.

wouldja lookit that, only $35 too

i kinda like the idea of some ballin super record cranks and drillium rings now that the seed has been planted but ill see which would be cheaper and easier

jdgesus 06-24-13 11:47 AM

i scored alloy campy record 10sp crankset for 90 with bottom bracket, you'll find something within a few weeks no problem

yummygooey 06-24-13 12:05 PM

no drillium plz
