Addiction 2023.1

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

I can't stand any jewelry. I never even wore my wedding ring. My ex bought me a watch and it sits in a drawer. I've worn it a few times.

I am not crazy about jewelry, but I do wear a wedding band (it's Ti, obv) and my casio. I also wear a stupid Apple watch for work so I can get the rotating 6 digit password for e-prescribing controlled medicines.

Here is a pic that mrs datlas snapped last night which shows off the nice wedding band (and the cat).

She's using your phone as a pillow? My fingers have a bit of web between them which makes a ring uncomfortable. Plus, while I was working I couldn't have metal on my hands, especially around electric cars.

I was on call last night, so I had to keep my phone close by. When not on call, the phone goes on the dresser behind the bed.

Shimano hubs are probably cup and cone with loose ball bearings. Sometimes tricky to get the preload just right. Is it both wheels? Someone suggested the QR was hitting the axle but this seems unlikely to me.
Switching between two frames, do the rear dropouts have the same axle spacing?

How different can they be?

I don't know about the years and genejocky probably knows all about that stuff but older frames had 126mm spacing which was increased to 130mm at some point. So, my theory is if you have a wheel that was for a 126 frame and put it in a 130 frame you will have to compress the frame with the QR 4 extra mm.
I could be totally out to lunch on this, though.

Thanks.

He lived alone and waited until he was in bad shape before he sought medical care. I believe he has two infected heart valves, plus an infection in his back and on his skin. Diabetic. He may or may not make it.

That makes sense, but what can I do about it? can I order a new axle or put spacers or something?

No, that isn't it. There's no such thing as a 126mm hub with 8 or more speeds. They're all 130.

I just took it off and the axle fits in the frame the way itís supposed to. I threw the shimano hub back on the ritchey, and with out having to clamp the skewer down, There is no play. Put it back on the trek, play. I have to really crank the skewer tight.


This isnít a big deal, I Just wanted more to know if I am doing something wrong.
