What's in da baaaahhhhhxxxxx? Some parts. Darker blue than we thought. Happiest kid in the world in this moment. **BRENT**

My Friends:    And my fan nº1 and asisstant   

Alec is 12 today and asked for a "proper bike."

it rained, and the rest of my parts arrived, so I rebuilt my bike.

Ultegra R8000 full group, 52/36 crank, 11/30 cassette, fulcrum 6 wheels (apparently I need a spacer, so my "magical r8000 shifting" isn't quite magical yet), ec70 stem and bars

Don’t you normally need a spacer when you are using a 10 speed drivetrain on 11 speed wheels?

I just know I can't get it tight enough to not have just enough play to make shifting less precise.

R8000 should be 11spd, right?

Most of my team members use Flux and are quite satisfied.

I personally still prefer the curler roller, but in view of a new confinement and that the racing season has gone to hell, I have decided to buy a Flux.... Fucking covid

today was quite the ride. 5 miles in my left crank arm came off. so i took 2 minutes and put it back on, and made a note to get a torque wrench. i then went 3 more miles til it started pouring. Got within a mile of home, hit a pothole, and got a flat. but still got PRs on every segment except the one where the arm fell off, and am 11 seconds from KOM on one segment now.
