Addiction LXXX

Notices
Road Cycling ďIt 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.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

Does anybody know what the mounts on the top tube are for? I should have asked but didnít realize they were mounts til I got home.
Toe overlap is when your toes touch the front wheel when you turn the bar sharply. Happens with some small frames, track bikes, bikes with aggressive geometry.

Top tube bosses are for a Bento Box, or similar.

The two bolts on the top tube are for a bag, lots of times called bento boxes. Nice clean solution that doesn't involve velcro straps
great minds

Most of my bikes have had toe-overlap. I'm 5'7" and you learn to live with it.

Same here. Itís a non issue except when making sharp turns at 1 MPH.

Really? I think we ride similarly sized frames. Do you ride exceptionally short top tubes or something?

The only bike I have with toe overlap is my track bike. And that only has maybe 3-5mm with 170mm cranks.

Since I have long legs and short torso, I do like a short top tube. The Habaneroís is about 56cm.

I didnít notice any when she was test riding it. She has small feet. Once she gets comfortable Iíll have her go clipless.

Oddly I've never had a bike with toe overlap even though some of the bikes I've had were supposed to be known for it. I always used 175 cranks and have size 49 shoes.

I finally got to zwift. I ended up using my phone. Zwift will run on my phone ok. Thats a good workout.
However I wasted an entire day trying to get zwift to work from my laptop. The internal bluetooth wouldn't work so I went and bought a dongle. Yhat was no go so I took that back and tried a different dongle. Still no bueno. Some how during all the trouble shooting I managed to do something to the internal bluetooth, that caused a nonfunction code 10.
I have no idea what that means other than my bluetooth no longer works.
In the end I had to use my phone. That sucks. The app is constantly running in the background sucking at my battery. Not a fan.
Good workout.

In other news, I too zwifted for the first time today on a wahoo kickr. Now I want one.

rode with my wife for the first time just now. She did really well. Only told her once how to shift and she was shifting like a pro. Her head light ( my old one) stopped working half way through so she was a little nervous but she HTFU and kept going. Got her to go all out on the last straight away and she hit 20 mph so that was pretty sweet. All in all I was stoked on our first ride together and hope we have many more.

Now, I still don't know if the Snap is going to work. But I am just going to believe that the problem is the firmware and my phone. Wahoo will fix that at some point . And for now I'll use Zwift to control things.
Say a prayer for me if you are of that persuasion. I may need the help.
Zwift has it's own spindown calibration, in the 'Pairing' page. I've been using that.

Also, based on your posts, I have NOT opened up the Wahoo ap on my iPhone while the Snap is powered up, so I hopefully will avoid the poison firmware.

Gonna have Irish coffee with Evan Williams here in a minute, with our most over-priced Christmas gift: Cranberry & Pecan Brie En Croute

EDIT: actually I guess it's closest to Kentucky coffee with the bourbon, but since I have no brown sugar, I'm using molasses instead.

Don't really need a headlight if you stay on someone else's wheel anyways. Better make sure her batteries are charged so she can leave you in the dust, though.

Most of my bikes have toe overlap, but I don't analyze it. It just is.

Instead, I have been gathering my cold weather gear for the annual New Years Day Century the club puts on.

I'm not a cheese eater, but even that looks tasty to me. I would give that a shot.

I ride 58cm and larger frames. What is this "toe overlap" you speak of?

I JUST got back from a hotel, where Mrs. GeneJockey and The Boys spent last night, since the Asbestos removal guys were coming at 8 this AM, and we'd need a place to stay all day. And in these COVID days, that can't be a cafe, or a movie theater, or the mall. The Greyhound and I stayed here last night, with him still suffering from hitting a hole in his "racetrack" during Zoomies. Poor guy!

BTW, I learned that some dogs have a paradoxical reaction to some opiates, such that instead of being sedated and euphoric, they become wired and anxious and I think more sensitive to pain, rather than less so. And poor Rango had that response to one of the meds. He was pacing and panting and almost wild-eyed. I know it drives docs and vets crazy that patients (and owners) look stuff up on the internet and then challenge their judgement, but, you know, I'm the one watching the reaction to the meds.

The 130 should do everything you need (I think - ask datlas), but the 530 has a bigger, color screen, nice nav features, great battery life, etc. I don't think that the 830 adds much over the 530 besides a touch screen. No idea on the 1030.

I suspect the 530 is most favored. I use the midget 130, though. Depends on what features you want.
