Waitaminnit!

​​​​​​Is that just another way of saying coffee cake? Or is it something else entirely. Either way I could probably go for some about now.

Whew, I was worried they might've snagged you at the Golden Corral.

Negative. See post #8700. Also, pay close attention to the quality music contained therein.

ANYTHING but the vaccine, including topical treatments like Betadine! I worry that we as a society are becoming dumber.

The Nikki Minaj antivax tweet was pretty good though :)

Not a big fan of lobster rolls either. Same thing, too much bread. But I will take care of the lobster. ;)

Besides...

It was probably based on wheat but had a ton of coffee added. She made it in the bread machine and I could smell it in the morning when I woke up. Good times.

For vegetarians, they had a bean burrito, a bean burrito plus (I don't remember exactly what's in it, but not the full seven layers), and a spicy potato burrito.

You should add potatoes to a cheesy bean and rice burrito sometime. It's excellent, especially if they make it well.

I worked at a Taco Bell as my second job in high school. Still love it, although it kills me how expensive it's gotten.

I can live without the 7 layer, but I hope at least they learned their lesson in pulling potatoes off the menu.

Have you tried many of the Mexican seafood dishes?

Thats when it is showing.


So I ordered 2. A 58 and a 56. I never got to test ride a 58, and when I test rode the 56 the mast wasnít long enough.


The 58 comes in october. If I donít like it then I will wait for the 56, which just got pushed back til December from November.

What color is the 56?

Asking for a friend.

It white grey and red. Itís a 2020 SL 7 with sram force


Edit: Actually I am pretty sure itís a 2021.

They did just get in yet to be built SL6. Donít know the color.

They had another trek owner come in and let the shop borrow his larger mast to take some measurements for me. Unfortunately I was at work so I didnít get to try it out.

Donít really care for po-boys. Give me a good gumbo, jambalaya, etouffe, properly blackened fish, etc and you have my attention. We get bone in seasoned pork chops stuffed with andouille from the S. Louisiana shop close to my wifeís home that I could eat all year.

32" ? Is that the measurement you use? That's what I use and I would ride a 62cm frame. I like the bars high, though.

I have really long legs but a short torso long arms.

I like the reach of the 56. Iím a little worried I will feel to stretched on a 58 but, I might be over thinking it.

You called it a bike ferry, as if it operates just for cyclists.

I use 30.5 on my bikes with 175s, but 31 on the ones with 170s. But 56's are definitely too small. The Circuit is a 56, and with the saddle at 31" and the stem at minimum insertion, it's still 2cm more bar drop than any of my other bikes. Do-able for rides as long as 55 miles, but I has lower back ache for a couple days after I rode it for 65.

This evening I mowed at the radio station and man, there was a slew of crickets hoping around in the lawn.

Only a few more mowings left there this year. :(
