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

Came back home and took the hub apart and lubed everything except the sealed bearings in the freehub body. Noise is still there. Maybe some water got into the sealed bearings? I'll take it apart again tomorrow. Last time I had to buy a whole freehub because nobody would put bearings in it. Genuine Campagnolo, made in Taiwan.
That description sounds similar to the issue I had recently with my road bike. It ended up being the freehub bearings. They are sealed cartridge bearings that I was able to replace myself, with the purchase of a bearing press (new tool day!). I'm not familiar with Campy hubs, however.

Last time I wanted to just get the bearings. It takes a special press to install them and nobody in shops wanted to try it, even the Campagnolo "expert" at Velo Pasadena who has the press.

That's a little worrisome if Campy Guy won't touch it.

Nope. Possibly the last one to realize who cares, though.

Bald eagles have made a remarkable comeback. Now along most large bodies of water you can expect to find eagles.

There must be a ton of eagles in the great state of Georgia due to the plentiful supply of clean, fresh water scattered throughout its boundaries.

1) Not a long read.

2) As long as there are plenty of alternatives to listening to what the Spotify algo tells you to listen to, what's the problem? Music I want to listen to is way more accessible than it used to be.

Quality band music, among other things.

Touché!

Technically, I was first just banned along with other sharp tools. Later, after we moved, I told my brother he could take any of the lawn stuff that he wanted. The saw went along some other stuff. My brother is fearless.

Sounds like Spike Jones or looney tunes.
