Make a wooden bicycle.

I understand. I've been doing that on Saturday afternoons recently...and some Sunday afternoons. Although, the project right now is just building out the shop. Yesterday, my daughter and I covered the back wall of the area with pegboard, which she will then paint with some of her bold and colorful graphic design artwork before we start putting stuff on it.

they got old over the past 37 years.

I did the full length of Latigo Canyon Rd. The wind was strong enough to give me a few scares, luckily the borrowed Felt has narrow section wheels. If it had deep section, I would have likely been knocked over.

It got hot here too. Currently 84F. Going back to the cold east coast in 2 days.

The virus and its aftermath do odd things. They give you bad hours followed immediately by good ones, during, and good and bad days in the aftermath. I will take the given opportunity to ride a bike today.


:thumb: That's great, good for ya!

Is it shaped like Jerry (Gerry?)Garcia?

I get emails from all of the high-res and/or vinyl-pushing music sellers - they sent emails about the new album a little while back.

we all did.

I received a text from my neighbor across the street today while @ work. At 5:08am some guy in a black Dodge dart , broke into his pick up truck and his next door neighbors mini van. I Left the house @ 5:00am. Just missed him. The best part is my neighbor is a police officer. He has the entire thing on video! Lol.

Also ran into Psimet on Zwift tonight on a ride. (Or someone using his handle) thought that was kinda neat.

But did you give him a “Ride On!” before you droped the hammer on him?

I've had it on order for a while. The group was a favorite of mine when I was a ute.

Yes, they have aged over the last 37 years, but alas, so have I. I just wish I could have hair like that!

Mojo31 02-28-22 05:51 PM

Well, come to think of it, I do have hair like one of them. :(

I was today years old when I learned the difference between "horde" and "hoard".

seedsbelize2 02-28-22 06:06 PM

Today years old. I'm seeing that around. It must be a thing. 37 years ago I was tickling the end of my fully dropped out phase(Turn on. Tune in. Drop out) and a year later would be in my final relationship.

A small number of their songs, everybody knows 'em, made a huge impression on me, but I wasn't of an age to go to a store, pick up an album and get deep in to their catalog. I think that I eventually picked up a Greatest Hits in the late 90s, but that's about the extent of it.

Did you turn around and come back down the same way?

Also have New Adventures in Hi-Fi anniversary edition on 180 g vinyl coming. Was a big fan of REM back in the day.

Yup. Went from PCH to Kanan Dune Rd, had a snack, and went back to PCH. The wind was way scarier on the way back.

I had a cassette, don’t remember which one. My wife is a fan. When I watched Donny Darko recently, it had some TFF songs in it.

Here is a pic of the borrowed Felt. Can anyone explain to me why they say it’s a 61cm size? Based on the geometry (see below) I would call it a 57. :foo:

It looks like the “extension” of the seat tube to horizontal is 61cm. My Colnago is a 48 but it’s really a 52 virtual seat tube. Sloping top tubes result in whacky sizing nomenclature.
