Addiction 2023.1

Notices
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

Why would you play a bagpipe in a confined space? NPR Tiny Desk concert?

This remains one of the coolest bikes I've ever seen. We had one at the shop in a small size but it was still a blast to cruise around on.

Or because it is Fargo ND and it is winter and you still need to practice? Playing a chanter doesn't help with the muscles needed to keep the bag inflated.

Or maybe at a Police or Fire funeral in a small town church?

Officially rode The Lance last night. Twitchy, stiff, smooth acceleration up to 18 mph, and then it hits a metaphorical wall.
Checked for brake rub, didn’t find any. Might have been what I was wearing, however, rode the emonda after and had no issues. If it’s just the bike, then people need to give Mr Armstrong a break. He had to dope to even stand a chance riding this thing.

The bar drop is massive, need to work on my core. No toe over lap. I didn’t push it last night, was just doing Zone 2 and I didn’t want it to asplode. Over all I am happy with it, it’s pretty light just want to see it go faster.

As I am typing this, it might be the mavics. I still havnt serviced the rear wheel, and it doesn’t spin amazingly, but it didn’t seem to affect The Ritchey.
