    Well I have actually had it for a week.... and I think it is fun. It does autofocus/exposure/etc. But through the app you can also use P/S/A modes. I mostly use it without the lens, but the fisheye on and go! But the app is nice, not clunky. I plan on pairing it with an Intel Edison and doing some sort of fun nerd stuff. But even if I don't, it is a nice fun camera. I got it refurbished for less than $200.

    I always wondered how you get those on the tube. I expected them to crack when stretched over the tube.

    Not directly bike related, but the postman just dropped off a mixed 12-pack of this:

    I don't know why there are any other clamps. It should be either braze-on or one of these.

    New bike. Moved somewhere where the roads are a little less well maintained and figured I needed something with some more clearance. First Giant in ages and I haven't been on shimano in a long time, action feels so light compared to Campagnolo. Attachment 96820

    Hopefully not! It does seem quite stout. But we'll find out in a few weeks!

    Got a couple more pairs of Outlier Futureworks pants. I have a couple pairs in black, so I went out on a limb a bit and got dark olive. They ship in the coolest boxes, all of which end up as parts boxes. They are also great pants, very wearable in all sorts of weather, not just warmer temps. And great for travel.

    Next pair(s) I get might be dark navy. For when I am feeling spunky.

    I was getting concerned that the postman thread had dropped off the front page so:

    Thats a single plate RAM clutch for a 2001 Moto Guzzi Rosso Mandelo. Two wheeled transportation. Still counts? Now to see if I can get it into the bike...

    Got a chance to play with the SDK and whipped up some python to take pics over wifi. GitHub - joemcmanus/a1: A collection of programs for the Olympus Air A1 OPC . The plan is to connect it to an Edison and make a push button remote on the bars and attach the camera to the fat bike. Cause' why not?

    A skewer and three revelations

    (1) Who but Phil Wood ships a quick release skewer with three (count ‘em) pages of instructions? The lawyers are partly to blame, as usual. And our litigious culture that encourages them. Too bad we have only a Bill of Rights. I would have argued for a Bill of Responsibilities.
    (2) “Light, cheap, durable: I can give you any two” Keith Bontrager famously said. Phil Wood: “Heavy, bombproof, expensive and retro.”
    (3) I realize when I pay 30% more for Made in California, I am paying more mainly for the social contract: minimum wage, OSHA, health insurance, a 401(k), paid vacation, and taxes for roads, bridges and schools. I am paying for what we think makes a good American life. Are there better engineered QRs? Probably. Do they fund the same social contract? Very few.

    Haven't touched a Phil QR, but my only critique would be that I hate plastic bushings on skewers. Let us know how you like it!

    The Paul skewer on my abbey chain holder is amazing though. If I rode my road bike more than 5 times a year I'd get a pair for that.

    Got the adapter cone for the Park head tube reamer so I can use it on 44mm head tubes. I got the cutters on the classifieds here about a year ago, and the LBS where I used to work allows me to use their tools gratis (for now). But they didn't have the cutters or adapter cone to do 44mm or tapered head tubes.
