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’m actually fairly ‘tolerant’ ? of Lance Armstrong ... tolerant for lack of a better term

I don’t give him a pass - but again more tolerant

one of the many unfortunate things is there is a good chance Armstrong could have dominated without the illegal aid(s) ...

he recruited a small group of friends including me - most of us office / desk jockeys

no serious injuries - but after a few weekends and weekday evenings of using a chainsaw my hands were tingling for a couple of weeks and I began to be concerned I had permanent nerve damage (or whatever)

Vision was not great but good enough, and way better than with glasses. The left lens has ceased to be useful. I'm tempted to remove it. I could maybe driveread if I did that

I did put the word in quotation marks for that reason. He's actually the only guy I know who claims to know anything about it.

It's not like Shimano where tons of people have tons of experience with it and know the quirks, what fits what, etc. When I've asked people who I thought knew, they didn't really know.

I popped that lens out a few minutes ago and both eyes went spastic. I guess I don't understand the relationships involved with eyes, eyeglasses, brain. Reading easily is the thing I've been craving . I used to be quite the reader. Then the eyes went and I switched to audio books. It's not the same

I may have bragged about it before, but my sister's kid is "acting associate principal" bassoonist for the Phoenix Symphony. I believe this may turn into a permanent gig.

I asked before, I think, but a question for those of you in the know.





This bike has 10 speed shimano 105. The drive side crank arm and chain rings appear to be some kind of cheaper version shimano variant, but the non side drive looks like the classic 105 hollow tech arm.






Would a stages 105 Left arm work on this? If so that would solve one of my current problems.

I don't see any reason why a Stages 105 NDS crank would not work fine on this setup.

Edit: To be 100% sure, take the NDS crankarm off and verify it's a "hollowtech II" BB hollow aluminum axle. It's possible they used up leftover previous generation octalink or square taper BB-style cranks there. But based on the dustcap and pinch bolts I see on the NDS picture I suspect it's Hollowtech. If that's the case you are good to go.

Thanks, I just realized I have a spare 105 R7000 left crank arm I could throw on to verify. Find the time to do that, is the problem.
