I donít get bored on long rides. Mostly because I am trying to push it, and my garmin is set up for 5 mile laps. As long as iím under 15 mins I know I am making good time . I used to have to sprint the last 30 seconds or so to make it everytime.

Only issue I have on long rides, days I am not feeling it at a certain point I want off. This never happens when I am close to home.

Hit a shard of glass that put a sizable slice in the casing of the tire tread. Still works just fine. I will eventually move it to a rear for safety.

All of my flat kits have a at TB-2 in them.

My mom died 9 years ago today. I took this photo of her when I was a child.

A small tarantula just strolled across the floor. Followed moments later by a frog. The frog turned and went out on the porch. The tarantula continued on undef the ropero.

She tells me that about other women too, but I can still appreciate them.

She did tell me I can get a Di2 drive train for my birthday.

seedsbelize2 07-11-22 08:56 PM

And with that I'm calling it a night. Gotta turn in. Git some shut-eye. Circle the wagons.

Yeah, that must be it. It's not the ice cream and chips. It's the hills.

The fat burning thing is about training metabolic efficiency, not weight loss. You use more energy less efficiently at higher intensity as I understand it, so maybe more calories.

You said floor. Thatís too much action for a living room.

Madone was making a rattling noise yesterday. Sounds like something loose bumping against carbon. Everything is secure so I donít get it. For a second I thought it might be the derailer.
