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

I bought a bunch of liquor at the beginning of this pandemic. Might as well.

Favorite drink of the pandemic is the spicy pineapple margarita.

1. Make a Pineapple Sour Mix: 1/2 cup freshly squeezed pineapple juice, and 1/4 cup each lemon juice, lime juice and sugar.
2. Rub the rim of your glass with lime and roll in homemade sriracha salt, garnish with lime and jalapeño wheels, fill glass with crushed ice
3. Fill cocktail shaker halfway with crushed ice. Throw in a couple slices jalapeño. Add 1oz each tequila and Grand Marnier and 2 oz Pineapple Sour Mix. Shake until shaker is frosty.
4. Strain into prepared glass.

Cool photo.

Thanks!

The spokes are butted, but it's pretty subtle at 2.0/1.8/2.0 mm. We'll make a judgment about how well they are actually put together once they're underneath my fat ass

I made a point if placing the hub label one time. If my felliw wheel builders want to think less of ne for it, so be it.

It's shockingly easy to do. About half of mine are that way.

I have taken at least one fully tensioned wheel apart because of that.

Same. Only it was the label and the valve stem hole.

Forget about the hub labels, I'm judging you for your typing.

Wheel building is a mysterious black art to most road weenies. You are now like a minor deity to them.
