    Yeah, complicated situation, even if it is possible to travel there, but according to the email updates, he still wants to make it happen. He lives in Kyrgyzstan now so he knows how it is there.

    Swiss bike adventure is happening too apparently, in July.

    SRMR has not yet been cancelled, they will confirm in the beginning of July, if it is possible to happen.

    I like how 650b's ride more than 700x40. The latter feels bigger, less nimble etc. and I had toe overlap. But my bike has higher bb than Arkose.

    Are the 800 hollow like some other Shimano cranks? If yes, hope they don't end up here . At least the 600 cranks are not hollow.

    I bought the 600 so I could get them in 165mm and 46/30.

    Week 6/6 of the 100pushups.com challenge looks like this. Three days like this to go and then a final test on Saturday I suppose. The sets are still quite easy, but doing that every day, there's some volume, I feel a bit stiff and tired on some days but fine on most. Kind of boring at this point to do them so many times a day every day and hard to keep up with it when I've been out somewhere, like a couple of bikepacking weekends. But still it's been good to do something to break up the work days and have a challenge.

    I'm 73-75kg. Two of my friends that have had one of those cranks crack are lighter than I am.

    Yeah, would be relevant if the bar is actually really wide, like the widest new gravel drop bars or mtb bars.

    You can reach further straight ahead of your shoulders than at an angle to the side, as with a wider bar.
    I went from a 40 to 46 and both are good with the same. The 40 was narrower than my shoulders and 46 wider, so in the end the difference seems to be pretty small.

    Here's my Miche Primato Advanced with a crack. At least three others I know have found similar, all noticed it before it snapped. I bought mine secondhand, looked like new, and used for commuting and such for 2-3 years.

    Can't remember anything in particular. It had been in daily use for three years.
