When did Merckx find the time?

Funny, you always read about how Eddie would tweak his position on the bike sometimes even during a race adjusting saddle height etc. So this past week I replaced my stem and by Saturday I had only ridden the new length stem on the rollers once midweek. I faced a dilemma. sunday was a team development ride that I wanted to go to. It was a 90 miler and that is cause in and of itself to take notice. I decided not to go, and do a local ride instaead to be sure I was comfortable on the bike with the new stem. GOOD thing I did, because I swaer I adjusted the height of the stem and tilt of the bars about hald a dozen times before I found the sweet spot.  The new position feels comfortable, and this is after getting in a solo 60 mile effort. MAN! I don't even want to think about the headache I'm going to have when I start to dial in my new road shoes from SIDI. THAT involves the saddle height as well as the cleats. :( I guess it's the yang to the yin of picking up some SWEEEET new "Ruby Slippers" NOTE I've been in the same TIME shoes for the last 10 plus years...
