And hates/is afraid of water, so we know he's not getting within 100 miles of a coast.

My daughter better not do that. We have money spent on her plans for a late 2022 wedding. Not changing that now.

Oh, I do. It's part of the job description. However, that doesn't change the fact that I was right about what you'd posted. If you now agree with me that Tennessee is part of the East Coast, then welcome to the party!

It was okay. I got a niece out of the deal.

EDIT: NOT the niece who won't get vaccinated. This one did a lot of the heavy lifting - figurative and literal - while Dad was in hospice care at home.

What do you say?

that's not much of an inspiration be it a flash or not.

I have a vivoactive - it's a watch.

Nice, captured your essence very well.

It's been said before but bears repeating; it's not easy being Velo Vol

That is outstanding. :thumb:

Seriously, she's very savvy about bikes and what she likes, make that picky about bikes. I'd have to drive or fly to Colorado so she could go hands-on with it before she would commit to buying one. Charts and graphs and a three-part harmony just wouldn't cut it for her.

sounds like time for an e-bike for you then.

That's pretty cool. Girl has talent!

Can you imagine anyone even wanting to try?

I dunno, but see if you can get a Klondike Bar out of it.

I think so, but I am admittedly biased. :love:

I swapped out the 11-25 cassette for an 11-28 in anticipation of Saturday’s Savage Century.

I accept your proof as submitted but it might not pass muster for someone.

Do it! If you want to feel better about the cost, we can talk about the basic boat instrument package the electrician and I are putting together for LSS. :eek:

you look very contemplative. As if you're thinking of ways to outsmart the censor filter.

Just showed my wife. Her response - "That is amazing!"

She's a big Matisse fan.

Let's hope this is the last time we see a spike. Note: State of Georgia data.

I just found this in one of my junk piles. I was thinking I might be too old for it and getting ready to sell or trade but then figured I'd put it on a road wheelset for the Lemond, and keep the 12-26 for the gravel wheelset
