Addiction 2021.4

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

Hope this isn't too P&R, but I see Allen West saying "Instead of enriching the pockets of Big Pharma and corrupt bureaucrats and politicians, we should be advocating the monoclonal antibody infusion therapy.", because apparently he thinks Big Pharma makes more off a $20 vaccine than it does off $12,000 worth of monoclonal antibodies. Or maybe he thinks monoclonals are grown on a farm upstate, harvested at the peak of ripeness (in this case binding affinity), and brought to you still fresh from the antibody fields?

On FB Marketplace, somebody was selling a pair of 700x25, gumwall Vittoria Corsas, in the boxes, for $30 each. I dithered. Somebody else bought them. They'd have been perfect for Deadman. I am an idiot.

Apart from that, I had a lovely ride - blue skies, light winds, dry roads, temps about 70 average. I was slightly overdressed, but only felt it when waiting for stop lights, so maybe I wasn't overdressed? I took the Battaglin, and I was once again amazed at how it seems to corner without input from me. That is, some of my bikes feel a little dodgy in a corner till I commit, and really put the weight to the outside pedal and lean. The Battaglin seems to just take care of business - at a higher speed - whether I commit or not. It's like it's programmed or something. I know that sounds weird, but I can't think how else to describe it.

Went to clean the cervelo today and the rear tire was partially flat. Took the tire and the tube off. Put air in the tube while I inspected the tire. Didnít see any thing in the tire and the tube never lost any air.

I was just gunna throw it away and put a new tube on it but I realized I donít have any spare tubes left that fit the super team.

Put it back together put air in it, and as of now it looks like itís good to go.


What could cause it to lose air like that if itís not broken?

Slow leak?

need more info. How long since last topping off the air? If more than a few days it could be as low as 60 psi. In my experience slow leaks are from the valve core. Over night my tubes typically lose 10 psi.

Did you dip the tube in water?

I rode the bike the day before. I keep my tires at 80, I didnít measure it when I saw that it was low but it was around 20 psi. It was not completely flat I had to let air out to get the tire off.


I did not dip it in water but I did hold it to my ear and couldnít hear anything. I let it sit out for about 2 hours and it hadnít lost any air. Weird.

Won't lose air as quickly without pressure on it, even pressure from the tire casing. Best way to know if anything is going on is to submerge the tube.

Some years ago, when I was riding a century every Sunday, the rear tire would go flat during the week. I pumped it up and rode the century and the next Sunday morning it was flat again. Rinse and repeat. I have no explanation, though I have some theories,

measure that psi now and if it's not down much tomorrow, you probably are fine. Was it 20 psi low or did it only have 20 psi in it?

only 20 left in it.


I just remembered I have the old Shimano rs wheels hanging on the wall. If it low tomororw I will just pull the super team off and throw the old wheel on. My spare tube will work on it too.

LAJ might lose his mind when if he sees the mismatched wheelsÖ..
