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

Might be entertaining to watch you ride that, though - 167.5 on the NDS, 175 on the DS.

Well so that’s the pickle. I mean the groupset on it works fine. So I could just do the UNO pedal route, but I do hate the hoods that the old 9 speed ultegra has, and I know at some point I will want to change.
But if changing requires me to get a new wheel set too then that’s more than I want to commit too right now. Where’s velo when I need some wisdom.


Pedal might just be the best option. Maybe put micro shift hoods on it?

I purchased a set of 32's for a hybrid I ride on pavement / road - but have not installed them yet

Also curious to see options for Sora 9 spd upgrade

Sunday was NBD - got a Topstone at a flea market

I believe it is a Topstone 3 - has Sora components and mechanical disk brakes (that barely slow the bike lol)

FWIW many folks around here retire to Sussex county, Delaware. Cost of living and taxes are low, medical infrastructure is decent, no sales tax. It’s way too flat for a serious climber but the roads are of good quality.
Sussex County has grown without control. What used to be great back roads are now loaded with traffic. I've stopped riding the roads since too many people I know have been hit. Trails only for me now.

Good point. My info is from my experience when we used to go there for summer vacation 10-15 years ago. I would hook up with a few riders from the local cycling club and ride with them, back then the roads (other than the main ones) were quiet. My favorite cafe stop was in Milton, not sure if the cafe is still there. Lovely and quiet, at least 10 years ago it was.

First ride since last week's spill. Bike felt great after the TLC and it was back to being silent, which is always so satisfying after a month of looking for the causes of the cricks and the ticks.
