Addiction 2023.3

Road Cycling ďIt 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.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

Rode my bike then went to watch the mighty Owls put a whipping on an inferior opponent. Next year they go to Div 1 Conference USA.

I have been eating a new hybrid apple lately called cosmic crisp. I love them! I just ate 2 of them and I can say with a high level of confidence that in my 60 years on this big blue marble that I have never eaten 2 apples in a day before. As you were.

EDIT: Does the Ultegra FD have that plastic piece?
Chain needs lube. That's all I've got.

fwiw I have 11 speed crank with 10 speed derailleur (Campagnolo) on my Seven. There isn't a huge difference in the cranks or rings but it doesn't shift as well as it did with the 10s crank. Everything has been changed except the rear derailleur so who knows.

Itís an R8000. 11 speed crank 11 speed derailer.

Dumb mechanic question:

I noticed my RD is a bit noisy going into the easiest/biggest cog in back. On the stand, when shifting to biggest in back, chain sometimes feels like it's between second and first gears (riding along the top of the big cog). I loosened the L screw and it's a bit better, but I feel like the RD really needs to go another mm over. However I cannot get it to go over because even fully loosening the L screw does not fix it. Shifting in all other combos is PERFECT.

Advice?

I saw those recently somewhere. Aldis? Anyway, based on your recommendation, I'll give them a try.

Affirmative, from my personal experiences. The more you sit around the stiffer you get. Move it or lose it.

I need to practice what I preach. Early this spring I was determined to get back on the bike this season . . . . . I havenít gotten to it yet.

You try pulling on the cable a bit while on the stand? Is it noisy when climbing in that gear?

How's the B gap? Maybe half a turn in on the B screw to give some more space for the chain to jump up on the cog?
