Go back and use my account to spin for me. I want the P1 emonda. We can share dual custody.

$10 off a > $8000 bike? Makes it totally affordable!

seems legit. I think. Are flats a problem for volley balls?

Don't know about volleyballs, but it's a real problem for any kind of inflatable ball at our house. Somehow, Dory, who's only about 12 lbs of dog, manages to deflate them, no matter how big they are.

Went for a 36 mile ride. 30 was the goal, so 6 miles were extra. My legs were all like “Let’s Gooooooooo”, my lungs were all like “Hell Nooooo”

200 average power, 19.2 average speed. Could have been worse I guess. Looks like heart rate was zone 4 for the most part.

I started later than I wanted too, so the route that I had planned which keeps me closer to the house has some really sketchy roads initially. Traffic was already heavier that I would have liked, so I went balls out trying to clear that section. Thankfully I had my bontrager flare light plus varia so all cars were aware of my presence.

too bad there isn’t any money in deflating balls.

Snuck out for a ride. It was wet and drizzly at the start but the real rain was finished. I met up with some friends for a group ride, but I am on call (could not get someone to cover me. Sad!) and of course got two pages 30 minutes into the group ride. I sent them on their way and put out the fires. I then went on my own for awhile longer. It was fine, but I missed my friends!

I wonder if volleyballs come in tubed and tubeless versions, and if people argue about which is better on volleyballforums.

It was snowing a short time ago. :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Nope.

Yes, both.

Less than an hour indoors doesn't really count as a proper ride. I mean, I could probably do that + 3 miles.

Footballs used to have an internal bladder, so...

It's not just duration; it's intensity. But you know that.

I mean, I was flogging those pedals trying to shave a couple minutes off the virtual course, and the run was my second-fastest post-broken-hip. But sure, yours is an accurate description too.

We'll see how my race at the real UT goes in two weeks.

You don’t need an account. It’s at all Trek stores. You can go to a local one.

I wonder if I could hit up the 5 stores close to me, and recruit a bunch of friends to do the same, Could I win a $10 credit enough to get a free bike?

The only advertisement I got was for the one in North Arlington. I don’t think the ones over here are doing it.

It’s all about perspective. - did I save ten bucks or spend $7,990?

Turn those suckers off and ride invisibly. I hear that’s the latest thing. :thumb:

They are all tubeless, but nobody uses sealant. #hardcore

Bummer.

If the deal is just local, then that improves my chances of winning the bike.

It's not how long you make it, it's how you make it long.

The problem is, there are either no standards or too many standards for tubeless volleyballs, and if you don't use the right ones together, they're likely to deflate in the middle of the game.

Speaking of deflating, after Dory managed to deflate the most recent bouncy ball Mrs. GeneJockey got her, Mrs. GJ said, "I think, given this habit and how small she is, we should call her Deflator Mouse."

And THAT, friends, is why I married her.

Yeah, I’m sure that’s the only reason.

what is the pass rate on all tests or is that proprietary information?

At one time it was up at around 75%/25% Pass/Fail, which is fairly high for a failure rate. Now we don't actually have an equipment inspection now, so that is dropping quickly. I don't have data on that yet, but since 82 and newer run on the dynamometer, I expect it to be about the same. Thank heavens the C3 feedback carb junk is finally wearing out, along with Grand Wagoneers.....

I have a presta screw on adapter, and I set the pressure and walk away. It also did just fine on my TT disc, because I have to hold the crack pipe on there as it fills. It was tough working the pump and holding that on the stem. This made it easy. So far, so good, but it's only been two days.

Must be a really bad habit if you can't wait until you get home.
