Addiction 2022.3

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

did you purchase an actual Sram version? The Chinese ones on ebay are great, 30 to 35 bux, hard to beat.

I did it to my Reynolds wheel with a file and some masking tape to keep the filings out of the gap. Took an hour, works just fine.

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?
you would only need a different freehub, not the whole wheel.

Well that makes things a little easier. I’m actually surprised that the 105 rims are still almost 700 dollars. With the whole 105 electronic hitting the shelves, I assumed the price would have dropped more.

I have a pair of Grand Sport Race tires on a set of mavice wheels. They are the newer pure grip compound. I like them a lot. A slightly softer ride than 5k's, slightly higher rolling resistance, and I mean slightly. I am pleased with them.

decisions.

Wife said no to the group set last night. Shocker.
FA uno power meter it’s going to be.

I sold a surf board so I might just use that fund to buy the 6 tires I need, shoes and pedals.

What pedals are you using? Be aware that the Favero use Look cleats* and that they're different from Shimano SPD-SL.

* = you can buy Duos without pedal bodies and install your Shimano pedals on them, but: a) only Duo and b) you need a set of compatible Shimano pedals to cannibalize.

I recently converted the older 10 speed bikes (09 Tarmac and '11 Tarmac/Contador) to Red 22 which is 11 speed, cable. I needed more gear for hills since I'm a fat ass and suck at weight loss. I purchased 2 med cage Rival derailluers. The 09 had been finicky shifting ever since I converted it to 11 speed. There was always one spot in the cassette that would refuse a downshift and clatter. I could move the spot around with adjustment but not eliminate it. So I decided that I would swap that one first. Turns out I missrouted the cable at the derailluer, that's why it was inconvenient. I had the cable on the wrong side of the fixing bolt! Doh!
now it'll take up to a 32 tooth cassette though.

Most of my friends who I ride with have bikes that weigh 16 pounds and fancy power meters/cadence sensors etc.

The Habanero weighs about 19 pounds, with no power meter or cadence.

Guess who is usually the first to the top of the hill??

A woodworker that I follow on IG and YouTube posted a pic of their (new?) helical jointer. Seeing the name on the jointer brought back memories of thumbing through BMX Plus magazine and lusting over the pics, and now I need to know if the manufacturers are related -

Industrial green, though it goes by other colors. Common color for machinery, especially machines with big castings. Supposed to be easy on the eyes.
