Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Went to a classic racing festival on the weekend. It was warm and sunny. Lots of interesting old racing cars going round the track at speed.


Fast and loud muscle cars

E-type leading a Mistral sports car.

Bambina re-powered with a Yamaha motorbike engine.

Classic saloon cars.

I think our FiOS box is burning out HDMI inputs on the TV one by one. We are down to two since last night.

Intermittent "fritzing" of the image, leading to complete failure. We had Verizon come in after the first input failed and they blamed it on a power surge or some BS.

Hmmm. The picture on the downstairs TV randomly cuts off for a fraction of a second sometimes. It's not the connection to the house because it never happens when I watch the upstairs TV. I am going to pop in a DVD since the player is connected via different cables and see if it happens. I want to rule out the TV as the problem as it's somewhat old. Maybe like 9 years old, but the picture is still terrific. For what I paid for it, it had better be.

I tried calling Verizon weeks ago about the problem. You can never get anyone on the phone. You are forced to set up a time for them to call you back. I did that. When the time came, I got a robo calll saying no one was available to speak with me. WTH?

Thought I was going to get a 2014 madone today. Guy one craigslist wants to trade for weights and equipment. Offered what I had and thought he was interested but he ended up saying no.
Don’t really need the bike, but I don’t use my gym equipment at all, currently. Was going to make it my rain bike. 10 speed tiagra, but it has a 105 rear derailer?

Is your Gym equipment Tiagra level? Maybe he wants a Dura-Ace Gym.

It’s a bench, squat rack, mats, weight stand, barbell, dumbbells, adjustable* and 200 pounds of weight plates. I think probably closer to 250.

The 105 rear was a typical "upgrade" from the dealer when new.
I think you'd be giving too much for that bike.
