I think that this screw may hold the cable end in the shifter. See pic of analogous shifter below. If so, try adjusting the barrel adjust on your shifter to get to the largest chainring.

What I want to know is why the weather peeps don't give us the "wind chill" in the summer? Even in hot weather the wind cools our body down, that's why people use fans. That's why we feel cooler on a...

For simplicity sake, this is correct.

More accurately, wind 'speed' is a velocity, and they are added as vectors, i.e. direction and magnitude are both important. If you are going exactly into the...

Oh, for sure. I mean, traveling 25mph into a 25mph wind on a bicycle would take something between 1,700 and 2,000 watts. You'd be producing so much heat you could take your shirt off.

That makes sense to me. It's pretty straight forward. Windchill is the effect of wind on cooling down the body. With the wind at 0 mph, your net wind is your speed, and that's how your windchill is...

^^please reconsider. If on a still day at 40F, you set out at 60 mph (back to my motorcycling example), you are going to be very, very cold.

Yeah, that's not unusual. I occasionally snip the threads from the sidewalls of my Conti SpeedRides, just so a thread doesn't snag and peel around the whole tire.

Tires look perfectly fine to me. Shedding threads is fairly common with some brands and models of tires. Better to cut the loose threads rather than pull off though.

That's not damage, that's threads from the chafer strip (or thread from the layer above the chafer strip) coming off of the sidewall. It's cosmetic and not structural. If you've ever used a Conti...

The strength in a tire is in the fabric plies. If the "strings" coming off are rubber I would not fret about them, it is likely just mold flash. If they are fabric I would be more concerned, but...

This thread got really grumpy, so I'm going to close it. Maybe we all need a snickers bar (okay, payday are better for randonneuring). I'm hoping to see Jeff at a future brevet.

I will add that success at randonneuring starts and ends with eating. It's not easy, and things often fall apart and I can't eat as much as I need to on a ride. This year's 400k was a good example,...

Psi: <20. Unless you're on a fat bike, I'd cram the widest possible tire into the frame. Tread in the corners can improve flotation on sand once you've maxed out the tire casing size.

It really depends on the sand. The sand on Long Island's barrier island (Fire Island) where I've tried this, is simply too soft to ride a bike on. You can go a while, but when you hit a soft spot you...

If he was carrying pure carbohydrate, 907 grams is only 3600 calories. Hardly enough for several days. 4 calories a gram, remember.
