Maybe we just had a succession of bad cooks, but Wyoming is not remembered fondly for the food.
.

Thar wasn't my experience in Wyoming. We stayed in Medicine Bow at the hotel and the menu was limited. One of our riders was vegan and didn't want anything on the menu. They told us to go to the store and get whatever we wanted and they would cook it for us. I was very good. Then we stayed in Rock Springs and all the restaurants were Chinese. It was good, too.
The food didn't get bad until the south. Not all of it but they seemed more geared toward quantity instead of quality.

One of my coworkers had red/force (Only the brakes) mix of SRAM axs Put on his custom SS coupled steel frame. Mostly for the wireless shifting so he didn’t have to deal with tangled cables/housing when he traveled. He also had the wheels rebuilt with white industries hubs. Overall invoiced amount? $4100+ :twitchy:.

He now walks the bike inside to his office everyday instead of locking it to the bike racks outside our office, less than 20 feet away. :D

Yesterday on my way back home, I got whizzed by (can’t really call it ”passed”) someone on what I like to assume to be an eMTB, going uphill on the MUP :notamused:.

I mean, I’m not the best of my shape to begin with, and riding a 29lbs steel bike with panniers full of clothing, shower supplies etc adds up too, but getting whizzed by someone leisurely pedaling on an MTB is reaaally demoralizing. :cry:

I just googled the price of an S-Works Tarmac with Red eTap. 11K.

In all the years I've owned my coupled bike, I have not once had to deal with tangled cables.

More than I would pay for a bike, but it's just biggish part for a biggish sailboat or a quarter of a year of private school.

Wouldn’t know, never had one. I believe he meant it as a “convenience of not having to deal with derailleur cables”.

A guy I used to ride with also raced road motorcycles. He spent at least $20k a year on keeping it going. But yeah, I wouldn't spend that much for a bicycle but I know people who do.

I just noticed the fb, twitter, ******, pinterest logos across every page. How long has that been around?
Edit: We can advertise for ****** but we can't say it. Beautiful

Don't folks know you set them up with couplers? You unscrew the couplers and take apart the cables before breaking down the bike.

By the way I have some couplers lying around if anyone wants them now that I am out of this sport. It was too fat for me.

Cable couplers? I've been meaning to buy a new set of three. I can give you a US mailing address and pay you for shipping.

Hmmm. I was a paid member. Maybe it ran out.
I do use an ad-blocking browser. Maybe this one slipped through.
Either way, it seems odd that we would advertise for an entity whose name we are forbidden to mention.

If I want old school simplicity, I ride the single speed.

He's not talking about ads - he's talking about social media links for the site.

I bet it was hard to get them to serve you a cup of weak coffee with that first course too. :Þ

Actually, those late dinners drive me crazy too. Half the time we just had tapas and called it a day.

Dinner around 7pm, at the earliest, on bike shop days.
