    once in a while, while browsing ebay a deal comes up that you just have to hit "buy it now".

    What's this 'bike stand' you all speak of?

    Yeah, but it will look like a modern Shimano crank.

    But you do have to hand it to them, relatively inexpensive bottom brackets that last.

    Full teardown, clean, lube, grease, drink beer (MIA Mega Mix), replaced cartridge/needle bearings in speedplay bodies, new chain. Ready for summer.

    I just put the Boca Bearings in. Their yellow seal bearings. Ceramic balls in steel races. Double sealed for off-road conditions. I figured those would work best. Use the Campagnolo bearings until the drive side goes and then put in a pair of Bocas. My oldest pair must be nearly 3 years old. Why Campagnolo doesn't use something as good as these I have no idea.

    I've given up waiting for the Campag stuff to arrive and with the rainy season approaching wanted to ride the Speedvagen so I swapped the DA groupset from the under-utilized Independent Fabrication. Hurry up Campagnolo!!

    And I just lost my commuter/rain bike. That's one hell of a nice road bike, son. He doesn't even know.

    The look on his face as we first departed told me that bike was his from that moment on. Fits him perfectly, too.

    The GT is in the stand now. Today I was riding a metric century and it had a really steep descent and I had to brake hard at 40 mph to avoid a wreck on the side of the road. There was already SAG people there so I rolled on. I heard and felt a rub from the rear wheel. I stopped to check and the rim appeared out of true and was rubbing the brake pads. The wheels are Zonda. I released the brake at the lever and rode on. I put the bike on the stand and the rim is straight as an arrow. The rim was too hot to touch when I stopped on the side of the road. Can a rim be affected by heat to the point of warping and then return?

    Hello, my name is James. I am a Lookaholic. I can't help myself.

    And yeah, it's gonna be Campagnolo so everyone needs to just settle down. Time to go back to what's tried and true.

    Saab, I like your style. The 585-586-595 generation of Looks are the gnat's ass.

    Bummer new chain worked stellar on all but one gear. Had to put old chain back on.

    Replaced the steam control valve & spigot, cleaned out the water pump and hose. Still haven't figured out how to quiet the belt/motor/head for the brewer without lubing our coffee as well. WD-40 sort of spoils the umami.

    They call it a "Dazza" stand. State of the art.

    Hubba hubba MikeZ. That has all the right moves.

    No pics. Just feeling proud of myself. One of my massage clients is a hell of a amazing person who rides the cr@p out of her bikes. She is a Professor and is close to 70, rides rain or shine and flat out glories in the fact.

    She has a fairly new high end Trek commuter with skinny tires, disks blah blah. After a year of hearing her comment on how much she loves her "fancy bike" I decided to get her a setup real nice 28's.

    Boy is she going to love that upgrade.
