    Until last week, I never knew how incredibly uncomfortable our wooden kitchen chairs are. We've had them for about 10 years and never harboured any bad feelings towards them. Now it's like, fuck those chairs!

    Was thinking a drum stand with saddle mod might be a good alternative. Wonder if a day on that would still cause chaffing.

    There is a joke going around over here:

    "When this shit is over, I'm going to take a few days off and just relax at home."

    fitting to your situ innit?

    Just videos yeah, https://fulgaz.com/fulgaz-rides/
    You can watch them without an account, and download them in multi resolutions with a membership. With a membership and a direct drive trainer it changes the resistance based on grade.

    The interesting thing with the Tacx software, which only works with a Tacx as far as I know, is that you can load/create GPS routes and ride them. There is certainly enough time left to ride the TCR2021 route a few times over :)

    yeah we can go out over here with no probs. It's actually busier outside in certain areas than I've ever seen. I was thinking about riding up the Sauer and checking the foot bridges. But just look don't touch. Last thing I need is to become a border crossing criminal.

    This winter I tried out FulGaz. First time with such a software. Was pretty cool. Put an old monitor on a workshop stand in front of the bike. The thing I liked best were the memories of the ride throughout the day. It was almost as if I was somewhere else. I did a lot of racing sim back in the day and thought what it would be like to get a projector and beam those vids on a wall.

    Hows everyone doing? And what have you been doing to amuse yourself? Are all your bikes well oiled and squeaky clean? Or all salty from sweat and tears?

    Recently built up an old frame to use as a commuter aaaaaand we're locked down. A 1x experiment with 36 up front and 11/46 at the rear. Tops out at about 36km/h and is easy climbing.

    My friend in the big east of France says he can't ride more than 1km from his house and they have said that rule could be extended until mid June. That is pretty harsh. He's so happy he has a tacx.

    Strange times, stay strong, stay positive and stay healthy.

    oooh that is cool, is using one enough? or is two necessary for getting the last impossible bits of tire over the rim wall.

    Just noticed this.
    Silly me still using thumbs, palms, water and levers. So old skool.
    Holding out for the mini version. Maybe we can ask Silca to make one...

    You can try the Sram PG1170 11/36. I recommended this to someone and they are happy.
    If I remember right, they didn't even have to add any chain links, guess it was long enough already. B screw adjust and done.

    But not sure if 2 teeth will bring enough though, especially around here!
