So I will be looking at buying some GP5000s in the next several months. A few years ago PBK was the "it" place to get good prices reliably. What's the latest thought?

I still do pbk and ebay.

We used to do the same thing with rental cars in tunnels, scare the crap out of folks.

I'm no art guru. My observation that in impressionistic paintings the light is quite important. So I note the apparent sunrise/sunset on the horizon to the left.

Maybe still sore over the practice buyout.

Jury service week completed! Checked in every night and did not have to go in. Anxiety relieved.

OMG, the DC area zebras are still on the loose.

This is the lead, the rest of what you wrote proves your assertion.

As previously stated, Datlas is contemplating his next attempt at outsmarting the censor filter.

Mrs Datlas captured the absurdity of your comments perfectly as expressed in the vessel in the middle of the table. It's clearly painted to exclaim "WTF" with arms raised in muted exasperation.

You missed out. Could have had several days of angst with a deadlocked jury.

First of all, cutting a late September ride short because you only have four bottles of hydration.

It was in the high 80s. I cut it short at 88 miles. How many bottles should I have gotten by on? :foo:

Perhaps he's one of those people who don't perspire, and so has no grasp of how dehydration works.

That image is right from the Cafe du Cycliste webpage. If they had a 50% off sale on one of those red flannel jobbers, I'd totally buy one.

I gotta try and get to sleep early tonight, see if I can get my sleep schedule set up for watching Paris Roubaix live.

I'll probably sleep in and have to download it though.

Whatever the number, you could have HTFU and gone eight more miles.

It's already 11 pm.

I'd get the gray one if I thought it would fit.

It's even later than that in Paris.

a) 10 additional miles
b) how do you know that I didn't HTFU just to get to whatever the number? I did run out well before getting home.
c) I happened to have weighed myself before and after the ride - I was 5lbs lighter afterwards, and this was after downing a pint of water and an oatmilk protein shake, so I was probably closer to 6.5-7lbs lighter.
d) you should totally show us how it's done.

Coincidentally, I watched "A Sunday In Hell" today for the first time. It was ok bit there was a lot of screen time for people yakking in Flemish or French. If they weren't going to subtitle them it would have been nice to at least tell the viewer wtf they were talking about.
