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

this is why I prefer the small pies ... 4 inch diameter or whatever

in my relentless hunt for the once-per-crank "tick" that refuses to permanently go away, i decided to change out my cleats..........

it looks like they may not have liked the water, and occasional salt water, that they've been subjected to. ouch.



the three screws holding the speedplay adapter shim down were a serious byotch to get out. one of them got rounded and i had to cut a slot into it and use a 1/4" flathead on a socket arm. dislike.

Just like ChatGTP is going to replace me, when most of my job is talking to the business to suss out exactly what they want when it turns out that what they say isn't how the system works at all.

Things to check:

Even spacing on the cassette cogs; are all the gaps the same? The chain should not rub against another cog
Chain path: is the chain fully within the derailleur? I've seen that sometimes the chain gets placed incorrectly through the small pulley wheels and rubs against the pully housing

Love me some pie, esp. when the crust is made with locally sourced, artisanal lard and I don't know about it. Hold the ice cream, though.

Until ChatGTP can put it's butt in a recliner, I'll be relevant.

Presumably, and the pie needs to be made by a lady with seven inch upper arm flaps. IOW, the less one knows, the better.

Iíll check to see if itís rubbing another cog. I took the chain off last night and spun the cranks. They donít spin amazing, but I have seen worse. Put the chain back on and made sure the routing was done correctly, still did it. I found a bike radar review of the 2015 Trek Madone 2.1.




Looks like the BB is prone to getting sticky. If thatís the case and itís fine to ride then no sweat. I just donít want there to be an underlining problem that I make worse.

Taking it to the shop today to get it checked out.

Ended up with 15", plus or minus an inch. Hard to be sure with the drifting.
