  1. That was a fun route except for the stretches of road where they had dumped those rocks today. Something's not right though, my cateye sez 28.4 miles.
  2. [sarcasm] Not since NwAvGuy debunked the whole audiofile op-amp thing. [/sarcasm]
  3. Playing around with a couple of the newer Google maps features....
  4. Adding one helped me to eliminate noise from the AC unit but running a new circuit into that room did the same thing for half as much so....
  5. NBC sports + TDF is having a promo at the Feed dot com ( https://thefeed.com/ ) for a "free" Garmin Sharp Camelback Podium bottle. With postage it actually works out to $6 but....
  6. Awesome rides by Tony Martin and Tony Gallopin. Will be interesting to see what they do tomorrow.
  7. Nice assemblage of parts. If you find yourself hating the fan that comes with the Hyper 212 EVO as much as I did this one is a nice replacement. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835553001
  8. Bikepedia suggested the Cannondale would have a BB-UN51 (which would require a Park Tools BBT-22). http://www.ebay.com/itm/331237170316
  9. Do you know what the bottom bracket is on the Trek? Trying to figure out which BB tools you will need.... http://www.parktool.com/blog/repair-help/bottom-bracket-tool-selection
  10. http://www.amazon.com/Park-Tool-Compact-Crank-Puller/dp/B0028YUZSS/ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GMuOIaVonrI The video shows removing a square taper crank but it's the same for a splined crankset.
  11. I would ditch that 92mm CPU cooler. Maybe swap the Corsair CS650M for a SeaSonic S12G-650 (not going to save you much though) X2 for swapping the board with the GIGABYTE GA-H97-D3H Or the maybe even GA-Z97X-UD3H (SATA express, does not have a DP though)
  12. Interesting "base combo" at Newegg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.1661630 $518 after MIR is a pretty good deal on that combo (the same 4 items are $547 at Amazon). But might be pushing it a bit to fit into $1000 budget though. PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139010 (750 watts is overkill but with the MIR and promo code it's an arm twister) RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231445 Windoze: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16832416806 Still need to check options for a case, optical drive, a real video card ....
  13. ROLF... think Wiggins is bored? http://instagram.com/bradwiggins?modal=true
  14. Crazy day but 3 hours and 20 minutes for nearly 100 miles was very impressive. Think will watch it again...
  15. Measure the resistance between the V+ pin (7) and each of the "trim" pins (5 and 1). The real ones should all be pretty close, the fakes will not be.
  16. Maybe if it had matching wheels but even with a rusty chain the Centurion Accord (that popped up today) would be a better choice? http://www.shopgoodwill.com/auctions/Centurion-Accord-Bicycle-17165283.html
  17. Goodwill had posted an ad in the local craigslist bikes section so I went and took a look. http://www.shopgoodwill.com/auctions/Trek-420-Bike-17146823.html An old beat up Trek 420 was no surprise but this one was----------> http://www.shopgoodwill.com/auctions/Specialized-Sirrus-LTD-Road-Bike-wKsyrium-Elite-17140072.html $195 shipping though.
  18. I don't see it happening this year but... Tejay... Tejay... Tejay!
  19. For fuck's sake.... How much effort would it require to take the cups apart and figure out what those wires go to?
  20. Give consumers the impression that they can buy a better bike then pro riders can have? FWIW the follow up on Velonews has an interesting spin on the whole weight thing. http://velonews.competitor.com/2014/07/bikes-and-tech/first-ride-treks-featherweight-emonda_334248
  21. http://www.bikeradar.com/us/road/gear/category/bikes/road/product/review-trek-domane-classics-edition-48057/ Shorter?
  22. New Trek @ 10.25 pounds. But, ouch. $15K!!! http://velonews.competitor.com/2014/07/news/gallery-treks-new-10-25-pound-emonde_333950
  23. The blue lick road section looks like fun.
