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

I suspect Cannondale's catalog specs in those days were "more what you'd call guidelines than actual rules" - my 1994 R500 came with a threadless headset, whereas the catalog shows a standard threaded one.

I enjoyed road races punctuated with short climbs, too. At 5í-10Ē/160-ish lbs, I had trouble staying with the little mountain goats (guys like you - LOL).

A regular on the forum posted that he was going to try it but had never tried a century before. I advised him to start with something easier but he went for it. He dropped out during the first day, I think. IIRC there was 17K feet of climbing on the first day and 13K on the second. Not for me.

BAH- I hope you are not leaving AUS early in the morning. The security line is a **** show in the morning.
AUS is always a ****-show in a lot of ways, but with PreCheck we were through in under 15. And now we're in Folsom, with a rented Tiguan that makes me remember why I liked the GTI.

Gate Infinity is in place of Gate 13:

Mine came with Sun rims. They were not up to supporting all the weight I was carrying.

94 Cannondale road bike with threadless headset / steerer ?

that gotta be rare (?)

some of the off road bikes were spec’d with them - as were the road frames equipped with Headshok - but I didn’t think it was until around 2000 the standard road frames had the threadless headset / steerer (?)

did you purchase new ? if a used bike purchase - maybe fork / headset was replaced ?

That beast was my only ride for a few years. I did my 200-vertical-miles year on it, which included the Everest Challenge.

Yes, I remember the Heartbreak Hundred route. I only did it once, chasing but never catching the "Nail Eater" (a multi-day ultra-endurance racer from Tustin). He really knew how to suffer. A ride buddy took one look at him and said, "That guy looks like he eats nails for breakfast." And thus the nickname was born.
well - obviously - you the guy eating ball bearings with breakfast - would be unable to catch a guy that eats nails

Yeah, those verticals are about right. About 8 hours one day 1, and 5 hours on day 2. The thing that really hurt was my neck. It was stiff for a couple weeks. Alway bring your own pillow on these away from home events.

Brand new, from Noe Valley Cyclery, back in early 1995. Checking the 994, catalog, all the 2.8 series road bikes had Aheadsets. The 3.0s (like the R500) all have threaded.

shifter for the madone finally came in. Should have that bike back next week.

Something else interesting about yesterday. The last couple of weeks I have really only been riding the 5200. That bike is set up super aggressively compared to my emonda. So when I would hop on my emonda, it would feel weird and I didnít like it, and I wanted to get a new stem to make the drop the same. Yesterday, The emonda felt perfect while the 5200 felt terrible. The whole duration of the short ride all I could think about was throwing the old stem back on it.

Watertown is what? Single gate, board the plane on the tarmac right? More of a GA airport than anything else. When I was in college I car - prepped for Enterprise and would always have to head there to pick up Conoco Phillips execs. They own an island nearby.

Albany is fine- itís usually fast through security and thereís a decent bar inside to properly shed my anxiety.

Single gate, with one TSA agent that never had a clue what they were doing. Take longer to screen 20 people there than everyone at AUS at 5 am. Speaking from my experience.

Sooooooo not surprised.

So as I said last night, this rental Tiguan reminds me of the good parts of my GTI - the effortlessly stable and smooth highway driving and yet precise (if not nimble) handling. Is that a German thing, or just VW? I assume the Porsche SUVs are similar?
