another barmitt believer here. they make me feel sort of like i'm in a car when it's in the teens. odd way to describe it but i feel like i'm inside of a warm thing. they are so good- cheapie dollar store liner gloves are fine in sub 20 weather.

So...tauntaun themed pogies? Quick! to the million dollar ideas thread!

i think with some elliptical rings you'll be alright

Five-foot drops at speed on unstable terrain? Yep.

Probably easier to track a set of those down than a shop with the super special bearing puller

Endlessly fucked around with chainrings to get the Advocate's chainline working acceptably. Rear wheel is 148mm OLD, so I figured a Boost chainring would be fine. Nope. Shifted like crap. Threw on a smaller Boost ring thinking that it was size-related. Nada. Grabbed a 32t non-Boost ring and it shifted like butter. Might be room for a non-Boost 34t, but it'll be close.

Fucking boost is ruining cycling.

More tire clearance at the expense of chainline. Does not work/play well with larger chainrings on 1x setups.

Swapped the crankset on the Rove from the stock FC-RS510 to the FC-6800 I had on the CAAD. Then fought with my floor pump and sealant to repair a slash in the rear tire. Apparently I yolo'd a little too hard on the Horizons.

What you need to do is visit any hardware store and buy a regular bearing puller made for autos, grab hold of the crank with the two arms and then just plug the large insex hole with something to screw against. Dead simple and maybe 5$.. I've done that many many times to PT cranks that both I and others have owned.

That's a really good call. Thanks!

LB was complaining that her soma wouldn't shift nicely. I looked at it and realized that the chain and jockey wheels were really really caked with dirt. Then I looked closer, and realized that the 10 speed unidirectional shimergo chain was installed backwards. I hate that this is even a thing, but after a thorough cleaning and installing the chain in the correct direction, it's shifting perfectly now.
