    It’s almost a shame to subject this cassette to the level of abuse that its predecessor went through, but that’s life as a consumable...it’ll be partnered with a new chain to keep it company.

    Not quite cycling-related -- though I guess it'll get used post-ride -- but the postman just delivered a 12-pack of this:

    You're gonna love (or hate) that Neo 2T.
    Don't need a Legend to use it to its full capacity (see below).
    Love mine, especially when paired with the TACX training app. Rode in Corsica yesterday, Belgium the day before, Dolomites on Tuesday, Mallorca on Monday. Using it six days a week.

    My understanding is first generation Record but others may confirm, these came out prior to the Cobalto’s.

    Build one of my bikes up with close to 0 bar /seat drop by using a 350 mm steerer Alpha Q fork. 80 mm of spacers made me just a little uncomfortable. Peace of mind after I glue this in. My back loves the higher bars.
    Amazing what a long carbon steerer and a 140 mm stem over rough pavement. Just eating the high frequencies.

    Be careful . Hope that's robust. I had an alpha q without their insert in a bike i bought used . It freaked me out when I realised shop had just pounded a star nut right in. I threw it out. Maybe this will work. I hope so. But with 80mm of spacer i would get an aluminum steerer or a straight steel fork personally

    In this case the postman is me picking these up in person... New wheels laced by a local shop to replace an older set I really don't like. Not too fancy, T11 hubs (been on my bench for a few years) and Quill rims, Sapim race spokes, brass nipples. Just need to decide if they go on the road or cross bike...

    Annie suggested I try one of these, what a sweetie, Woolex merino long sleeve, 1/4 zip, will be used for riding and general wear(no pockets). Got it on a 50% off sale(now sold out) but most likely will get another at regular price, so soft. Fits great, if you're a big guy with long arms the 2xl will make you happy.
