Wife is home, new bike is on the way, I am not in a swamp, I took the day off, my nether regions remain intact, and we all will live in harmony.

Such is the life of a wuss.

The single yellow rose at the airport helped.

Felt so good today that I wrapped the OCLV in new blue cork tape, installed a new Era saddle and put on a new cassette (12-25). Now all I need is, um, well, to ride.

40 days and counting.

What do you need a 25 cog in Florida for? I've never been there, but I hear the highest mountain is something like 300' elevation.

If I were you, I'd get a 12-23, which replaces the 25 cog with a very nice to have 16 cog.
I have a 12-23, tooElefantino

But I put the 25 on in anticipation of my first ride back. Hundreds of hours on the trainer can't equal time on the road and I know I'm going to suck wind when we scale some of our larger bridges and backcountry hills. Once the legs are back in road shape, I'll probably put the 25 back on the OCR.
