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

Thanks! Ah, yes, immediately. The flip side is that we have the lease on the current place for a few more months, which means we can take our time and only use movers for the big stuff, but I think we'll want to get to sleeping there ASAP. That shower is amazing. And I'm going to splurge on an MP1 once we're there. Set up a stunning pain cave.

2) Which sealant? Still OrangeSeal?
3) What should I use to inject the sealant?
4) Anything else I should bring along on the rides?
Any questions for the tubeless faithless??

I saw those buuuuut given the ones that hurt my soles now are TX212s, it's hard to convince myself to try another. Especially given how terrible their distribution is.

What I really want is Giro Empire SLX, but sized for human feet.

Meh, so you risk a week off, some people see it as a badge of honor to get banned at least once.

About 9 years.

I was JRA through my little neighborhood, and this beauty was just about to roll off the trailer.

Quiet night.

Time for yet another solo midweek ride. Early start for me to avoid the predicted rain.

I need a good dry lube- I’ve been using finish line but don’t love it. Any recommendations? Seems like there’s no general review consensus in the interwebs.

And a slow morning to follow. I am beginning to be really frustrated in my inability to ride. Though the lockdown would prevent anything other than around the neighborhood. I could ride the hybrid around the property. If I could ride.
