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

When I say slow, 3 mph.

Anyways, everything is cool now.
You need a hybrid type with platform pedals for riding slow with your kids.

Trek FX6 Sport would fit the bill. Your N+1 quest is not complete.

Kudos?

So much for that. I set up the trainer, thinking that I'd need to get in a little exercise after walking the girl to the bus stop, but then I noticed the icicles and dam starting to form on our roof overhangs. 70 min of roof raking later, I think that I'm good for the day. Snow, the exercise gift that keeps on givin'.

Man, if you're a Rapha fan or just Rapha-curious, now's the time. They've got some really good stuff on sale, some at very steep discounts. My burgundy bib tights dropped to $125, so I couldn't resist any longer. Going to continue to monitor a couple of jerseys and jackets. I don't really *need* any more, but they'd get used and would be nice to have, 'specially at a good price.

Did you have to pay the full admission price? You were providing entertainment.

I'm wrong. For some reason, I thought my iPhone 14 used a USB-C....and then I went to actually look at the cord I use every night to charge it. It's still Lightning.

The C takeover is already frustrating, where my new headphones use it but the 6-port charger on the coffee table has none. I can reuse the MBA charger for now, but it's annoying. And the C charging blocks tend to have fewer ports (a 6 is supposed to be available in "late spring").

It may be better in the end, but right now it makes me want to scream.
My Kia has 6 charging ports in it, all of them "c" . Technically 2 of them are interfaces that will charge. The others are just charging. I had to buy "c" to "c" cords for it.
Old obsolete charging cords will be the new pollution plastic straw scourge for Gretta to shame us all with. How dare you!

As a hoarder of consumables, I only recently used up my GP4000s tires and am running GP4000sII now, I find them reasonable to mount, tight but doable. Obviously in another 1-2 years I will have to get tires and would ordinarily get the newer GP5000s.

Can anyone confirm or refute that the CLINCHER GP5000s is a much tighter/tougher mount than the GP4000?? I know the tubeless "ready" one was a ***** but that's not what I am asking.
The Tyre is only partially responsible for the tightness during mounting. The rim and tape used has much to do with it. If the rims are tubeless compatible you need to use the Capton type tape in the rim bed. It makes a huge difference.

I found them about the same: difficult, especially mounting the first time, but doable with patience and thumb blisters. Bear in mind that I am comparing different widths (the 4ks were 23 and the 5ks were 25 mm) and rims here.
