Addiction L3

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

I'm not sure what's wrong with me. Full name: Jacob Sylvan Whitney. (I'm Jonathan Whitney BTW)

Yeah, it has been mega popular, but looking at some maps it appears that during its longest run at the top, it was mostly northern and midwestern states that used it, not the south/southwest where we are. We thought really hard and couldn't think of a single Jacob we knew growing up and we couldn't think of any families we knew with kids named Jacob. And really, we just love the way the full name sounds. The middle name requires some backstory, but the short version: a band I've known for years released an album called Sylva recently and it's gorgeous and helped me grieve my father's passing. It's of Latin origin and means wood or forest.

Man, naming kids is hard.

If only you had kept that tie, you wouldn't need YouTube.

That's correct. I like to live dangerously though, and doing the Google, then the YouTube, 5 minutes before I am supposed to leave, is way more sporting.

Same here.

They come in handy for funerals, however.

Yes, that is correct. It probably explains why I am the last guy on Earth (it seems) who is still wearing only the long point, button-down collar which is the perfect match for the four-in-hand. Stodgy ain't the half of it.

Missed!!



For some reason I recorded a lot of misses this particular day. Just a guess, but it may be that with the abundance of eagles in the area it causes them to rush their attack and just miss. Haste makes waste.

But this particular case is harder to explain. His feet managed to grab the fish enough to lift it out of the water, yet the talons didn't penetrate enough to hold and keep the prey. Methinks he needs to sharpen his weapons before going hunting.

That's a shot, @BillyD.

Hard to follow that, @Mumonkan, but nice try.

Sort of let your mind flow and let your thoughts fly from your finger-tips.

seriousness and proper spelling are discouraged.

Aborted my Friday indoor session this AM. Supposed to be a 40 minute FTP repeat but my legs and mind just weren't into it.

I watched the rest of the people complete their tests and I swear the triathletes and TT people just about orgasm during trainer workouts.

Trainers = self-flagellation.

Considering we have a reasonably sharp brain-trust within this thread I figure I'd ask here first...

So...I've been fit. I have a custom geometry, that bike will be built over the Spring and hopefully I'll have it for D2R2 2016...

Nevertheless... I have not been able to translate my fit into everyday reasonable ballpark spec's that I can use to evaluate production frames in order to satisfy the various aspects of N+1...

Without further ado, here's my geo...how do I translate this into useful information?:

@UnfilteredDregs : subtract the numbers that are on a frames geo sheet from the ones you have there, fill in the space with combinations of stems / bar reach and seatpost / setback and saddles

i.e. frame says reach is 300, 401-300=100(mm) = 100mm stem

...if you wanna run -17° stem on a 73° HTA bike, otherwise you gotta do a little trig to figure out what the horizontal reach of the stem of the angle you'll be using.

But you'll be ballpark close if you ignore all that. Can't be more than a couple mms.
