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

For years when I raced motocross, I'd clean my air filters in a bucket of premium gas with my bare hands. I'm not sure how that has affected me.

I use one of these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08N154BBY/

I just wish the hinge and clamp bolt was on the front and back, not the sides.

i loaned it to my brother who claims i didnít loan it to him. i should have known better, both his car and bike are the same shade of blue (riviera blue (i think) m3 and true blue endurace) whereas mine are all nearly the same shade of dark grey/black.
Tripod (for use when rocks and fenceposts are unavailable) is on the way. It is not made bu Gitzo.

Back to my quick link. Replaced with a brand new quicklink still too easy to put together.

Thoughts?

Thanks, I actually like the rail option, but that still requires me to buy another mount. I can use the seat post mount it came with on all of my bikes except the madone. I have the original Varia with a 3d printed mount on the madone, currently.

Now that I have the camera, I like having that, incase I am ever in an accident. I am convinced if I ride without the camera thatís when I will get hit.

On your phone itís a QR code, but the passengers I watch just keep turning there phone trying to get it to scan, the scanner needs a second.

Just realized iím in Austin all next week. I wonder if this time I can convince mellow johnies to let me rent an emonda for less than 80 dollars.

But, is it made by Gizmo?

I've used Manfrotto for a long time without ever having a failure, and that's with heavy gear.

I don't think there is an aftermarket mount for the camera version Varia.

How do you like the seat? Iíve been looking for one to test. I donít know if I want the 139MM or 149MM but the seat Selle Superflow that was good for so long is in need of a decommissioning.

Snow in the hills here (SF Bay Peninsula). Page Mill Road, the closest climb to my house, is closed at around 1000 feet.

I'm doing a flat and low elevation ride today.

Holy cow, wonder if they mostly just ran out of gas or couldn't get up the hill. I heard reports of averaging 2-3 miles per hour on commutes home last night!

No, that photo is retro for real, that was over 50 years ago. Bam wasn't even born yet.
