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

I wish WhyFi was around so I could tell him about my new Pirelli P Zero Race TLR tires.

Oh another question.

So I had a 9 spd cassette on the super teams. I had a spacer behind the cassette. I pulled the 10 spd cassette off the bontrager wheels to put on the super team wheels. I noticed it had a spacer but it was smaller than the spacer behind the 9 spd cassette. This made sense in my mind, the 10 speed is larger so smaller spacer.

Well when I mounted the wheel, it shifted like garbage, while before it was on the bontrager wheels it shifted fine. So I pulled the cassette off and put the 9 spd spacer behind the 10 spd cassette and mounted the wheel. Now it shifted better but not perfect. I adjusted the rear derailer and now it shifts almost perfectly, one cog acts weird 30 percent of the time.

Thoughts on the spacer delima?
Put it back on with the correct spacer. You will need to adjust the low limit screw. Then readjust the cable tension for smooth shifting. And possibly high limit.
is the shifter 10 speed or 9 speed? If you are using a cassette that doesn't match the shifter. The cable pull will be different than what is required for the cassette. By the time you shift 3 or 4 gears you will out enough to make noise.

EDIT. 6 SPEED through 9 speed is 1.7 ratio 10 speed is 1.2 ratio. Per 1mm cable travel 6 to 9 speed moves thexrear derailluer 1.7 mm. 10 speed per 1mm cable movement moves the rear derailluer 1.2mm. You are off .5 mm per shift. That's quite a bit of difference.

They were very easy to install, that was nice as the 5000 TL can be a little tight. I only have 75 miles or so but they roll nice and corner nice, too. So far, I like them but they are pricey.

Heidi is going to Cannes in mid-May. If we don't hear something by late April we may start to panic.

Since I am thinking about getting a replacement for the Saturn, I have been occasionally looking online at new cars. I am leaning towards getting a civic.

Then I saw the 2023 Civic type R.

Want. But apparently impossible to get.

Standard was 8-11 weeks at the time (it's longer now). One would think she's OK.

I put a 10 speed cassette on a wheel I'd been running an 8 speed on, and it was loose. The cogs would move around on the freehub body even with the lockring tightened all the way down. I looked it up and apparently, 10 speed cassettes on 8 speed hubs need a spacer, I think 2mm. I ordered one, and put that in back of the 10 speed cassette, and voila! No wobbly cogs.

Did you get the new 2023 version? I have the older/original. I like them, but they can be a bit scary in the wet. I've been shopping for this year's tires and an improved version of what's I've been running for the last 6k miles wouldn't be a bad thing.

I hope so but might be cutting it close.

They said expedited was 5-7 weeks when we did the renewal.
