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

The music DougRNS grew up with is, uh, interesting.

This explains some things.

DougRNS is an Aussie? I never knew.

This is the only version of that song I own on vinyl. More horns, so you might like it better even though the woodwinds steal the show.

Yeah, if there's a groove in that clamp area, I concur, let the cable settle in the groove.

agree - TCU punched above their weight and made it to the championship game

TCU - 10K student school (?) - beat Big 10 Michigan that might have 4 times the enrollment and then lost to SEC Georgia that might have 3 times the enrollment

but still puzzling TCU did beat Michigan - and OSU played Georgia well (and could have beaten them)

Quite frankly, beating Michigan was probably a fluke. TCU choked in the Big 12 with an embarassing loss to K-State, almost gave Michigan the game after losing a huge lead, and then choked again last night from the start.

When the score hit 10-0, I told my wife the game was over. She about took my head off.

The undefeated season was nice, but the schedule was not that strong.

TCU does recruit well due to the success experienced in the Patterson days, and it has money.

Rear hub noise saga continued from here Addiction 2023.1 ...

SUCCESS!! Last weekend I finally got a chance to put some miles on my Storck since replacing the freehub body bearings. All quiet and smooth, the way it was intended. Not only was the wonky hub noise gone, but thanks to a new chain and cassette, the drivetrain is running as quietly as it ever has. It was very enjoyable.

Often, quoting the post will bring it right up. I've had this issue since forever.

Thats all.
The wheels came off, it could happen to anybody. I feel for the players, especially the seniors. That kind of stuff takes decades to fade from constant memories. Ask me how I know.

Now there's something you don't see every day.

I'm gonna hazard a guess that's welded rail.

I have urges to build one of those old OCLV frames into a rocket "townie" bike with a flat bar and 1x drivetrain. Unfortunately, I have zero use for that style of bike.

Yes. My Propel is getting long in the tooth but resides on the trainer. I sold off all of my CX bikes and old stuff.
