"Angiogram"

Learned a new word today: angiogram. I was having a little dizziness when my HR goes above 177 (at my age, go figure) and since my father died of congested heart failure, I decided to go see a cardiologist.

The stress test showed some parts of my heart may not be getting good blood flow so the angiogram, scheduled for Thursday, will show if it was a false-positive, if I need a stent or two or if it's more serious. FWIW, the echocardiogram was normal so structurally, all is good there.

All that time and effort to get into shape only to have hereditary factors kick my butt.

If you don't hear from me after Friday, you'll know it didn't end well. . (I keed...I keed....I expect no issues!)

This looks interesting



Hmmm Easier to store than indidual wrenches and lighter than a multitool.

I wish you the best.

I don't have problems until I go above 190bpm. At that point, I feel like I can't get enough air. I guess that's my "red zone".

Don't need one on a road bike and I already have 2 separate 'travel-size' chain tools for mtn biking. One of my chain tools is older than some of the people I ride with!

So, I set out to buy a facing tool because I really enjoy working on bikes just as much as riding. Whoa, $300 plus for a good tool, that was for the head only, BB set up is additinal.

I totally understand the principles but wondered if it was truly necessary. What did the shop charge you for such a service?
I looked into those tools...then went down to the LBS. They're expensive!

I was charged $35 and I think that's a decent price. I get good deals on service there. I read up on whether or not I should have it done and like usual, some said yes and others said it wasn't necessary. My reasoning for having it done was that it wouldn't hurt and since I was dealing with a bare frame, now would be the time to do it. This is a middle of the road build too. Nothing fancy.
