Hard ride today. I'm inching ever closer to a datlas approved 100'/mile with 4000'/46mi today.

Climbing highlight was Green River Cove Rd: 2.4 miles, 970', 7-8% average with 17 total 15-20% switchbacks.

Hopefully I will be able to walk tomorrow.

Because they took a nap, like you do?

I did not because it would have been inappropriate.

I'm trying to remember the year a woman I know got the first digital camera I ever saw. Seems like 1997?

It had a 3.5" floppy.

Wut?

You could just say you don't like it - Beauty in the eye of the beholder, and all that - rather than assuming the role of arbiter of what constitutes acceptable art.

I don't remember exactly when we got our first digital camera, but it was after this 2001 adventure.

I did. I don't like it because I already have enough ambiguity in my life.

And it's "wut"

Which bike did you take? Got a low gear on it?

Ambiguity doesn't make it bad art. Since life is full of ambiguity, and art imitates life, there's a lot of room for ambiguity in art.

Velo vol, arbiter of wut.

lol. I never asked for his approval or opinion since it doesn't matter to us. I'm sure we would all find something is someone else's house that we don't like.

I am looking for an 11s freehub body for my Reynolds Assault rear wheel. I posted in "WTB" and someone actually responded. The grammar is a little funny and it's a new user with one post, so I am thinking I should NOT get my hopes up. Right?

I showed the two paintings to mrs datlas, she said "they are not my style but they are good."

Correct. It costs no more to at least be polite or say nothing.

Reminiscent of car commercials of the era though most had a sport ute. Still, similar vibe. :thumb:

Took my Holdsworth. It has a 34/32 lowest gear.

I used it a lot.
