Riding Safety  - 
 
From Strava:

To let everyone know, +Lonnie Wormley was hit from behind by a car a couple days ago.  He has undergone surgery for a broken hip and will have a long recovery.  The initial reports is the lady was on her phone and did not see him on his morning commute.  Stay safe and keep your head on a swivel.

Powertap rear rim in place. Chain too long (but broke my chain tool).

So much for riding Sunday - closest chain tool was in Arizona... MIGHT get it Friday if I am really lucky.

I have no idea... This chain breaker was my dad's and is probably as old or older than we are.

There's the anxiously awaited frame on the stand with the brakes, crank, front derailleur and rear derailleur mounted. Titanium blade frame, SRAM Force22 Groupset, Richey UD fork with 45mm rake (temporary until I decide whether I want 45mm which I designed for, or 43mm for a slightly more responsive ride). Easton EC90 SLX3 bars will go on. Stem and saddle will be purchased at the fitters. Speedplay Zero pedals.

And yes, it is a compact. :)

I have not pressed the bearing on the fork yet - it is only sitting there to allow the bike to be worked on.

Park Tools PRS-21 stand.

My 'rental' commuter. Facebook allows you to borrow bikes from 'The Hub' - the on-site bike shop. This is what I commuted in on today. Rides very nicely.

And yes +Ben Folsom, I borrowed their pedal wrench and put it up on the mechanics rack to change my own pedals.

The build I've been working on for sooooo long. Handlebars are not wrapped until I get the fit done. Front rim is indeed the same, but, has about 500 miles on it and the machined brake track anodization scrubbed off due to the brakes. I suspect a few descents and the rear rim will have that same pattern.

Took it for a quick spin - hit 25mph without even realizing it. Powertap hub works like a champ. It is light and responsive. Saddle height in the picture here was about an inch too high.

Still needs a few tweaks, but, overall, I'm extremely happy with the build. Once I get it dialed in, I'll post a final build picture with a breakdown of everything.

Looks great Chris! How tough is it to build wheels? I want to build up some LB carbon's for my MTB and I'm trying to decide if I should do it or have a shop do it.

Front wheel in for brake adjustments. Handlebars in, almost all cables reasonably adjusted.

Easton EC90 SLX 3 handlebars
SRAM Force22 groupset
HED Belgium Rim, Alfine Dynohub, Sapim CXRay bladed spokes
temporary stem and spacers until bike fit

Working on the rear wheel currently: Powertap hub, HED Belgium rim, Sapim CXRay bladed spokes

It is possible I'll be able to test ride it this week.

Rather boring guy.

(Python, frameworks, http, scalability, sql/nosql, 5 nines, 6 nines?) The fun stuff.

I post almost exclusively to communities, so, no more of that pesky circle management stuff.

The meal was really good. Roast Beef Open Face Sandwich, Western Omelette with Hash Browns, Monte Cristo Sandwich, substitute Potato Salad for Cole Slaw. I was informed that there would be a $1 charge for replacing the Cole Slaw - even though both side items cost the same. When the food arrived, Didn't get a Roast Beef Sandwich but a pile of Roast Beef, Mashed Potatoes and Carrots. When the check was received, it was $36. I was charged $2.95 for the Potato Salad rather than the $1 upcharge, but, when the bill came back, it was $42. When we questioned it, we were told that they made a mistake and gave a Roast Beef Dinner rather than the Open Face Sandwich and changed the price based on that. They credited a portion of that, but, said that the substitution of the Potato Salad required them to charge the item at full price. As it turned out, they ended up crediting a portion of the bill, so, three meals with three sodas turned out to be $38 and change - more than the $34 the bill should have been. The staff was attentive, but, the stealthy way they tried to increase the bill sure soured the experience.
