Addiction 2024.2

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

Got an email from Cannondale today, announcing their new LAB71 SuperSix EVO:

The latest LAB71 SuperSix EVO has arrived, carrying with it the all-new SRAM Red groupset – lighter, faster, more comfortable, with even smarter features and better device integration. The dream build is rounded out with a SRAM AXS power meter crankset, CeramicSpeed bottom bracket, and the brand new Reserve Turbulent Aero 42/49 rims laced to DT Swiss 180 hubs with SINC ceramic bearings – a wheelset so far out in front that, for a limited time, the only place in the world you’ll be able to find it is on this bike.

$16k even. If you can find one. I think I'll pass.

Will it make me faster?

edit: Oh darn, they only go up to 58. And I was all set to break out the platinum card.

I read somewhere that adaptive headlamps are still illegal in the U.S.?? We have them up here now on many cars (ours does). Their proliferation has made a noticeable difference for night driving.

Game was good, but in the middle of the game I got a text that our Amtrak train we bought tickets for was canceled and we should take the next train which is TWO HOURS LATER. Eff that action, we splurged and took a Lyft home. I tried to cancel the train tickets for a refund online and of course the website won’t let me.

Now on hold with 1-800-USA-RAIL for god knows how long to try to get a refund. Grrr.

Ya gotta wonder what they were thinking. I can’t play either, with that tiny bike.

Headlights are blinding us. Here’s why it’s mostly an American problem

This was taken before the game started. It still ended up being about 35% capacity which is probably typical for a midweek game. The Angels won 7-2 BTW.

Over the years I've noticed several companies stop at 58. I could probably ride it but the bar would be too low and I'd need a long seatpost.
