Addiction 2023.1

Notices
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’ve bought lots of printers from $10k high speed office printers to high end photo printers to $100 casual home printers. Canon is the only brand that has never caused me problems.

I also have concerns about the seat tube bottle cage mounting. I don't think most cages would fit, and if they did, you'd never get a bottle into them, and if you did, you'd never get it out.

A standard small bottle would probably be fine (I'm guessing). A large bottle, probably not.

I once dated a girl who found "yes dear" condescending. That was tough.

Look how close the lower hole is to the strut. All the bottle cages I've seen extend several inches beyond the lower hole.

Ahh. Valid point. Obviously, you will have to use Spec’s proprietary bottle cages.
