Addiction 2023.1

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

I get all eye twitchy thinking about taking it apart and putting in its case. The thing barely fits. It’s something out of nightmares.

I haven't worked on Campy hubs at all, so I have no idea how they would be different. I did buy a $40 bearing press kit for my task, and it worked perfectly.

they own a snow removal company or sell snow removal equipment to name two things.

Please send the snow my way. I’m dying to go skiing and it’s been warm (for this time of year) and raining here. Even the places further north are struggling to keep a base.

It's baffling.
Many people just enjoy the aesthetics of fresh fallen snow, including yours truly. Plus it provides a good workout, particularly valuable to some cyclists who avoid upper body resistance training like the plague.
