Re: OU47t+Sh11/42= win

Two friends have had the same problem. Sounds like I have to fiddle with the "B " tension.  I can see that the chain comes off the cassette and around the first wheel at a pretty tight angle, getting bunched up/ catching what have you.

Re: OU47t+Sh11/42= win

So I have a 11-42 on the back. Having a major issue, when I put a lot of pressure on the cranks on a steep climb the chain is slipping. I imagine the derailer is being pulled forward  too close to the 42 t sprocket. So how does one fix this? Bike mechanic keeps saying it's fine, which it is until I put a lot of load on the drivetrain then it slips.. This only happens on the 42 tooth. ( Largest one)

Pro-tip folks, ask how awesome the I5 is.

Oh man, bang on right there. When you hit solid gridlock from everett to tacoma, looking at 6 lanes of nothing moving thinking  to yourself "how in the fuck is this possible".

Adding more lanes and bridges doesn't get people out of cars.

Tacoma Traffic is the worst. Hours of crawling along. Last time I was stuck in that I just wondered how people can live like that every single day. Made me think of the movie Falling Down.

Crazy thing is there is no alternate route unless you drive the Olympic peninsula. When we head to Oregon we go thru that shit after 8pm. Insane

Re: 911 conspiracy theories on Youtube

The whole thing is so fucked to think about. The Pentagon is so clearly a missile and not a plane.
No footage of the crash has ever been released, all the light posts are intact right in front of the crash site.
No plane parts, jet engines never disintegrate on impact.

"Remember me for a month" does not work.  I'm on Chrome.

Can we please, please, please get the feature back that tells us if there are new posts in a thread?  I really miss the bolded topic titles.  It must be a check box in the backend of this thing somewhere...

This^ThisThis^ThisThis^ThisThis^ThisThis^ThisThis^ThisThis^ThisThis^ThisThis^ThisThis^ThisThis^ThisThis^ThisThis^ThisThis^ThisThis^ThisThis^ThisThis^ThisThis^ThisThis^ThisThis^ThisThis^This

This forum has lost it's mojo. Too bad

Toasting Cable.

So want to toast my cable.
The programming is garbage, the only channel I really want is HBO.
I can stream, watch recorded sports online thru Reddit etc.

suggestions?

I just went through this myself. I found Best Buy had the best sales. I just waited until a 15" lap top with the newest Intel i5 processor came on sale. I wanted something that was a little future proof. YMMV. I ended up with a Acer for around $600. IMO all the brands are the same at this cheaper price point. I was looking for the best deal.

I then wiped all the bloatware. It's very easy with Window's 10.

I removed all the useless Windows apps with CCleaner. I highly recommend CCleaner. It's worth running every few days if you browse a lot.

Then I waited for a Samsung SSD M.2 hard drive to come on sale and popped it in. I was surprised how easy it was to upgrade the hard drive. The Samsung SSD's come with very good cloning software.

Edit: don't get anything with less than 8gb of ram.

Response this  ^^ putting a solid state drive in cranks it up a notch big time.

My Job is design. My desktop is a beast, but my laptop is one of these which has been great.

No unread posts button....
Couldn't log in, had to set up new one.

Maybe make the forum functions the same as the old site? Can't see who has posted recently.

cheers
