It was much easier to do the 117k/75 mile route today, than in June - so much cooler, even if it was raining for half the ride. 5000+ feet ascent, and it was just a fun long ride - 130 riders turned out, pretty big crowd for a local brevet.

I've never had a cleat come loose. Ever.
I don't use any loctite.
Might be a good idea to use some blue though.

I spent my day cutting a hole in the wall above my fireplace, and building a frame in there then getting a start on closing it out.
My knee is crap. I will be setting up a doctors appointment next week. The pain level is considerable. II am unable to do anything to make it less painful. This is about as bad as it ever has been since my full stupid days of high school football.
I am bummed.

Never used loctite. Grease the threads and grease the underside of the bolt head. Torque well. Check part way into first ride. Should be fine after that. Have installed thousands of them for customers and they never reported problems.

Yesterday and today both I took my two oldest kids out for a ride on the local trail. Oldest is 7 and has been a couple of other times, the younger is 5 tomorrow. It was her first time to ride a bike off-road. They both did great, and LOVED it! I think it will be hard to go for a workout without them in the future

1 more year or so and I think the 2 year old will be ready to go as well.

Watch old race videos. Watch NEW race videos (just DLed and watched the Belgian CX Championships. OMG! What a race by an un-named Belgian) cause it'll make the time go by faster.

AMHIK

I especially like the old Paris-Roubaix films for motivation if I can't get CX races.
