thought after the extended break it might be ok with cycling again.... bummer.
I think it's permanently dead to that activity, short of replacing things. It is a bummer, but not a huge one. Running has always been my first love. I just switched to cycling because my genetics were more suited to it. Assuming I ever finish this PhD thing, I think my graduation present is going to be a really nice gravel bike with a super low gear. As long as I spin, it's OK.
