Since everyone's talking about sweating, I rode 3:15, drank 3 x 24 oz bottles (4.7 lbs) and weighed 4 lbs less afterwards. So that's over a gallon of sweat, about an average temp of 80 degrees and 45% RH. I hear you sweat less when you get older. So far, at 62, it ain't happening.

I never said that, but beef on its own is delicious. Chicken? It's like eating beige.

(worth noting at this point that 3 of us specifically said we like chicken simply seasoned and cooked)

Pfffft. If whole roasted chicken were beige, would Costco's business plan hinge on selling it?

Case closed.

Not exactly fair (there are a lot of ****ty beef cuts). But yeah, boneless, skinless breast is the leanest and needs the most help if you're going to have it solo.

Whole roasted chicken? Awesome, even with just S&P. For that matter, skin-on chicken breast is still good, cooked skin-side down in the skillet and then flipped and finished in the oven. Deglazing the pan is extra awesomeness.

It works well on salad. Race season just turns me into a processor, so the best bang for the buck is what I'm after. Dark meat is way more better.

De gustibus non est disputandum, but we'll still argue about it.

It seems to me you don't like chicken. Is that what I am hearing?:foo: That's ok, not all people have the same taste in food. I think that's why Baskin-Robbins has 31 flavors. 1 for every day of the month and enough variety to keep everyone happy.

Rotisserie chicken/beer can chicken or even grilled marinated boneless skinless chicken breast is delicious in my opinion. I enjoy a steak as well.

I also support the vegetarian diet as well - lowers demand and I save in the end. Win-win!:hug:

I should also point out that if your whole roasted chicken is beige, it's got a ways more to cook. ;)

The rollers on the long stride ones with the tracks crack and fail really quick. I don't think they fare well in the AZ heat, or maybe they fail early everywhere.

Short stride and SUBs don't have that problem.

Slightly more difficult than wrapping bar tape.

A quality chicken cut into parts and thrown on the grill is pretty damn good, IMO. Especially the dark meat.

Now take some ground chicken or ground turkey patties with no seasoning, put 'em on the grill and you will die from lack of flavour. Of course ultra lean ground beef treated the same is almost as bad sometimes.

LesterOfPuppets 08-09-20 05:12 PM

In other Elliptigo news, they still don't have those gigantic SUB pedals for sale :(

One pedal definitely has more play on the axle than the other one. Is that something a bike shop does?

Throw some herbs de Provence on that bad boy.

Of course, but I'm well in my rights to say that.

After my ride, I had - among other things - 4 slices of hard salami, a nice crispy kosher dill pickle, and some kimchi. These were what I had a hankering for. I think I might have been replenishing something.......

If they're new, stripped pedal thread. Usually involves installing a new crank arm. One guy kept breaking spokes.

There is a guy who rides with club #2 sometimes but his doesn't have pedals. He climbs on it but not fast. He was behind me once and another guy said it sounded like a copy machine back there.

Tough love. :lol:

Ha. But no, I'll be convinced when I start meeting people in person who are excited by the chicken itself. Not before. It's up there with the exotic pizzas that someone wants in every group, but is the last to be finished.
