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

it was raining too much to ride to work this AM, so i'm looking out the office windows at rapidly drying roads and open skies feeling very sad.

but it's supposed to be sunny and dry wed-fri.

All these factors have made music less complex and I say that makes it less interesting and therefore not as good.

They didn't go into the lack of real instruments played by humans.

I used the Spotify app to listen to the podcast.

Not just Loctite tight?

Also, make sure they aren't torx screws. Sram likes torx.

I would try the following in this order:

WD40
Penetrating oil
Heat gun
Maybe needle nose vice grips

One more thing, if you need to use a hex wrench, get one with the longest handle you can find (or slip a piece of pipe over the handle). The longer handle can give you a more torque at the bolt head without necessarily having a stripping force.

Something like that, in my experience.

Itís a 2.5mm head, so nothing is going to have much of a lever arm.

Anyway, theyíre not going anywhere without some real abuse, Iím afraid.

You can get long and extra long hex wrenches - uxcell 2.5mm Sliding T-Handle Hex Key Wrench for Fast Spinning, CR-V Steel - - Amazon.com. Then slip a length of pipe over the handle to give you a longer arm and more torque - VPC 1/2 in. x 36 in. Galvanized Steel Schedule 40 Cut Pipe 22-720536 - The Home Depot.

Several years ago, in June, my wife was on the AIDS/LifeCycle ride from San Francisco to LA. I roughly followed her daily course. I would go do some mountain climbs, then drive to meet my wife at that day's destination to take her dirty laundry and give her a clean kit.

One day, I tried to climb Mt. Palomar from Highway 76 to the observatory, but I only made it as far as East Grade Road. There was snow on the road, and it was sticking to my wheels. Soggy snowflakes were falling. A few cars came down the hill, but none were going up. One of the cars coming down stopped, but only so the occupants could point and laugh at me. I must have looked like Andy Hampsten in that famous Giro photo.

I probably could have kept going to the observatory, but the road past East Grade Rd was covered in snow, with no vehicle tracks. I cautiously rode back down to my car, got out of the wet kit, put on every warm piece of clothing item I had brought with me, and crawled into my sleeping bag. That was chilly.

It still bugs me that I didn't summit.
I understand about not summiting bugging you.

Most of my riding in snow was on the mountain bike or motorcycle.

If they aren't stripped or damaged yet they should be fine if you use a quality wrench and apply pressure to the wrench holding it square while torquing it. A 1/4 drive tool on a ratchet might help.

3) Or just stop using the cards if the info on them is wrong.
