middle of the plain bearings.

Campagnolo jockey wheels use a soft metal outer bearing material, so it
was easy to drill through the plastic wheel and the bearing material.


Dude, these are the ONLY pulley wheels you will ever need: https://tinyurl.com/yb2lnw6c Only $500 USD.


Hold your breath while I rush out and buy some.


Well, perhaps you are not as good as Peter Sagan or Romain Bardet! https://www.ceramicspeed.com/en/spor...nsorship/road/ For those of us who push the limits of human performance, every watt saved means a potential stage win or GC placing. A full compliment of Ceramic Speed bearings and their specially treated chain allowed me to podium yet again on the way to work this morning!

Correct term is "nutritionally challenged due to food
insecurity" which requires a bigger program and more funding
despite every similar failure.

Yeah, we've got you J. I got a copy of "Fast Over 50" and was rather surprised at how accurately it depicted the reduction in performance with age. 3 years ago when I was sprinting to catch a light I could hit 36 mph and I could hold 28 mph for relatively short periods of time on the flats. Now that same sprint is 27 mph and I'm lucky to hold 23 mph on the flats. Though I'm climbing a whole lot - I'm getting close to 5 Mt. Everests, I am now so slow up hills that kids on scooters are passing me...


At almost 74 I am not at the point at which the increase in performance from training is less than the decrease from aging. Crap.

Well, at least I'm not denying it and hating on other people who suggest otherwise. If I recall, that crap with Jobst started when I rode with him and he was climbing in a 48-19. I suggested that he could probably do a better job at his age with a 39-25 and he went Jobst on me.

Three tips: (1) EPO! Nobody is going to test your blood/urine. I think some of the old KOM dudes on Strava are juicing. (2) Remove all instrumentation, and then you can claim to be going much faster and farther than your are, and (3) only ride with people slower than you. Other options include Gruber assist https://www.electricbike.com/gruber-assist/ and strategic excuses, e.g. "oh, I just got a heart lung transplant and am feeling a little off my game," etc., etc. I'm going to write a book for riders over 60 with some more real-world stuff in it and not a lot of dopey training tips and dreams of keeping up with 23 year old Cat 2s.

I've been adjusting my attitude for years. It helps me to browse a Frank
Patterson sketchbook. I figure I can always do this kind of cycling:

Stopping at the top of a hill, ostensibly to look at the view,
pretending I'm not out of breath. Gotta buy me some plus fours, though.

When I lived in New York, there was a spot on Krumkill Road that was
like that. I always stopped to say "Ye cats, I was way over there,
way down there, and I got up here all on my own!"

The prettier view was in the other direction.
