Went riding after work last night. About 40 minutes in I realized I wasn't having any fun.WTF?
Not having fun riding a bike?
This new obsession with seeing if I can go faster with a 1x8 than a singlespeed has whacked everything out of perspective. Instead of enjoying the ride I was looking at splits, trying to figure where I could make up time. It's not even race season anymore!
Is it no fun because of how I'm riding or what I'm riding?
On the geared note, I realized the MRP X.1 chain guide would not work with my BB. It's designed for external cups, and although the tech at MRP said it should work with an ISIS BB "as long as the cups have a lip", I think he's wrong.
But I found a longer bolt with the same thread pitch as my front derailleur's limit screw, so I can ditch the cable and shifter.
So I've got that going for me. Which is nice.
Have a great weekend.
