Addiction LXXVI

Notices
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

Wonder where the weight is hiding? Seems like it would be closer to 18-18.5#.

But Aero trumps weight, right?

FWIW my Habanero comes in at around 19 pounds, and it is certainly not slowing me down.

I have a feeling that the boy is going to ask for a kitten for Christmas.
So sorry to hear it. But you cant hope for better than a peaceful ending like that. At least you didnt have to take him to the vet and be the instrument of his passing. Sure sounds like you are managing the family emotional issues well.

Datlas, A minor medical question for you. I had a bout of salivary gland pain in the lower jaw on the right side a few days ago. Any food in the mouth whether acid or not set it off. Really sharp pain. It was going on for most of a day. I did a little reading about it and saw that it was often due to a plug in the gland not letting the saliva exit into the mouth. After massaging and squeezing the area really briskly, the pain went away. Is it possible that I pushed out the plug in the gland. If so, I want to remember that. My dad suffered from it on occasion, and no doubt it will come back some time.

Very possible. If it was a mucus plug it may have just dissolved. It may have been a stone as well. We usually suggest sucking on lemon drops or other sour candy for a few days, to stimulate salivary production and flush out any stones/debris.

I hope there's a valid reason and a sincere apology. My usual opening line was, "Have you waited long enough or would you like me to go away and come back in ten minutes?"

Just a simple fyi, with no attachments or boasts. My '92 Paramount, ready to ride with a Brooks leather saddle, weighs in at 21 and change. I'm just as slow on it as on any other bike. It Does accelerate nicely though.
