This is an Ultegra 6800. I'd guess this RD and pulley wheels have 9k miles on them. When I found the crack last night, I immediately got onto the Kogel website and order a set of "not of instagram pullies". I've got them on my other bike which is same frameset, but eTap instead of UltegDi2, and been impressed.

Dang, so much for Japanese reliability... Was just poking fun at you On vacation in Denmark and rode down to the southern most point of Denmark this morning with an old friend of mine. Am ramping up for two 100 miles mountain events in September in CA...

I obsess about every little detail on my bikes, and leave absolutely zero items on a 'to do' list. During the afternoon teardown and cleaning, I found the cause of the clicking sound.

Holy chit! Glad it didn't.

Interesting that this morning Judith and I did a pleasure drive to Lake Placid, on the way passing a large number of riders on the mountainous roads approaching the Village. At lunch we learned that they're having an Iron Man competition this week; those guys and girls must have been training.

Ordered the first part for my next road bike this morning - a NOS Centaur Ultra Torque polished silver standard double crankset, before everything went black or godawful. I'm currently running original SRAM Force but got the idea for Campy after my wife removed the nice updated silver Centaur Ergo-Power levers for her originals. I also found her Centaur double FD and may have a cassette hiding out as well. Still looking for a Centaur or Chorus RD and will probably go with new Potenza brakes (can't stand Campy's differential braking setups). Wheels will be White Industries hubs with Velocity Aerohead rims, same as what I have now but Campy vs Shimano/SRAM.

After cleaning up my wife's old Comp Triple square taper crankset, I kind of wish I'd gone older for cranks - those things are art.

I took a trip to the Alps this weekend for the Etape du Tour.

Cheeky warm up ride to the Col du Galibier: https://www.strava.com/activities/1084481050

And a not so cheeky Etape route onto the Col d'Izoard: https://www.strava.com/activities/1086860882

This was by far the hardest day I've ever had on a bike, physically and mentally, but so glad I got to the end.
