Addiction 2023.3

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

what's wrong with electric? Dylan went electric and he's doing fine 50+ years later.

Actually more than anything I want the ultegra adjustable brifters. You cannot adjust 105 brifters. I’m referencing the pull length.
Can mix and match of course, if you can find the parts separately for cheaper.

You also get the buttons on the top of the hoods.

From a riding perspective, I'm not seeing much difference between the two. Shifting has no noticeable differences to me.

I can't tell the weight difference when riding either, but you know I'm just a slow old man anyway.

We rarely (ever?) eat just toast. It usually has cheese on it. Thus the toaster oven

Ride cooler must translate to rice cooker, correct?

I was so shocked at the remote, yet horrible possibility, I just had to ask. I was like “Oh no, not Dennis . . . . . NOT DENNIS”!

I always seem to get sick lately when I go to work. I don’t know if it’s the airplane or the F-up sleep schedule. SMH.

It doesn't sound low when you consider the demand.

Irrelevant information and you linked to a post where he didn't say it. Try again.

Nice ride, high temp only low 80s. Only problem is friend has figured out his new e-bike and can now drop the rest of us at will, even the other e-bike rider.
