Went for a 28 mile ride this morning finally after a week in meetings, and dropping $460 on this boat anchor,


Figured out I think I can buy the campy record derailleur for the rear, (10-speed), then the wheel set, and then I can use them with my friction shifters.

Probably do different chainrings on the front for now, though.

Creepy but looks like a good time. Thanks for sharing.

So I rode the 50 miler Friday. The group I rode with was so slow it took us 10 hours. Needless to say, but my ass is sore. I actually rode 54 miles because I would push my friend and his son up the longer climbs, circling back for the other and leapfrogging them up the hill. Riding at night was interesting. I think an investment in some proper lighting is in the future(HID).

The downside is that my bottom bracket developed a bit of a click on this ride. It is worse when out of the saddle, but slightly clicks twice each revolution of the pedals. Any recommendations for corrective action?

I need a vacation to some of the places you people live by. B E A utiful pictures. I did a short 25 mile ride as I have some music to go play at a winefest, but I can basically show small hills with dirt and small corn plants. Sorta like watching paint dry compared to most of the pictures here.

Pulled the trigger on a new ride yesterday, kind of blew the budget too. Oh well, can't take it with you, right?

It's a Knolly Endorphin Comes in at 33 lbs, which is 11 lighter than my Norco VPS 6. Took it out for a moderately technical ride yesterday and was all over the map. I'm having to learn to ride again.







Going to change out the bars for some risers and see if it helps. I just love the bike, but it doesn't feel like home yet.

It was a new build, so first step is to make sure everything's tight. The pedals are a big culprit. Loose crankarms may be too. The BB takes a special tool that you may/may not wanna buy now.

After that, if it still don't stop, it may and stess MAY be the frame.

Pedals are generally a 6mm allen. Crankarms are 8mm. BB is the second tool that Shimano made.

From those of us that live in a desert, I'd LOVE to see corn growing!

Should I just check tightness, or dis-assemble lube and re-assemble?

First check tightness. If that don't fix it, disassemble and re-lube/re-tighten.
