been told clicking is not always something to worry about. this was the ankle, though. had it for years.

it is strangely stiff too, can't bend it as far as the right knee so must have inflamed it somehow, the pain is down so the PT recommended heat to speed up the healing. I might stay on the bike till it's 100%, not really training for anything right now. I do miss running to the Metrolink, that's a fun little jaunt through the parks and scenic. Cycling on the roads is a little nerve-racking, after not riding all winter, too stressful.

that's a good thought, could ride my jogging route through the parks. however, I've cannibalized all my bikes for parts and only my beater 90's chromoly commuter bike with the skinny tires is functioning, not really suitable for the grass. I think the cx bike needs a rear der, tires and chain and stuff.

you could probably find most of that at my house. definitely a good selection of tires.

got any spare commuter 700c wheels you want to unload? I'm actually commuting on my deep dish carbon racing wheels, haha . . . on the 90s giant steel bike, what a contradiction! all my spare wheels have "issues". the cx wheels I have are tubular racing wheels so not ideal for commuting.

if i got rid of one of my active ones, i'd have to ride on a race set...which might be ok since chances of my racing are low. will give it some thought.

no don't do that, you should hold onto the commuter ones and sell your race wheels, then. I can pick up some commuter wheels or rebuild the ones I have.

How low can we sink? My chain was squeaking, so I figured I'd oil it. Well, overnight a thick coat of hardened treacle seems to have grown over all moving and non-moving parts of the drive train. How the heck did that happen?
