Same. I'm suspicious of a pedal.

No loaded bicycle, but that's about what I naturally top out at. I don't force the issue at that speed.

How did the unmountable saddle conundrum resolve itself?

He's just been pedaling out of the saddle the whole time.

Who’s the tandem guy in this thread? I have a couple of questions for him.

MoAlpha 06-19-20 12:31 PM

Just said yes to Marion-Bermuda 2021. I have a year to train for tolerating: sleep deprivation; sitting on hard surfaces; scopolamine; living dirty, stinky, and wet; rich WASPs; and alcohol.

I thought about you and your clouds of mosquitoes yesterday.

At the edge of the property I mow there's this thicket. In the summer it tends to be covered over by vines (wild grape, cinnamon vine(?)), looks terrible.

A few times a summer I venture into the thicket and try to kill the overgrowth by cutting vines. Every time I do it I'm amazed by the swarms of mosquitoes therein.

There's basically no mosquitoes out in the lawn, but step a few feet inside this area and they're buzzing all over. You got to keep moving, to the extent possible, because if you remain still for even four seconds they'll be on you. It's crazy.

I believe they are censored because their links are notoriously spam.

Remember the George Carlin bit about the 7 words you can't say on TV?

We should come up with the equivalent but for the BF censor!

datlas 06-19-20 12:41 PM

The thing about the censor is it can't understand context.

Eg. "Everyone thinks Joe is a tough guy, but he is really a big ***** cat" the word before cat SHOULD be ok in this context, but in other circumstances it could be censored. The censor is a very blunt instrument.

The guy at the bike shop said they could mount it, but I've not taken it by yet. I probably should replace cables too. Rust.

So, it didn't know that by "tits" I was referring to male breasts, which are universally acceptable.

Kudos.

Will you be navigating celestially?

Real sailing.

You could easily detect if there's a URL after the banned word and then scramble that.

Well, using "Preview Post" revealed that they fixed the bug I used to use to bypass the filter. Now I know what I'll get up to this weekend.

I foresee tolerance to rich bees will give you the hardest time. :innocent:

Don't know. We've done it both ways in past years.

I'm sure they'd be shocked to hear me say it and it's more my own prejudices and insecurities than anything about them and yet...

However, they let even Geraldo Rivera into the host club, so it's not that exclusive a group.

Yes. Amazingly, I experienced nothing but a few minutes of anterograde amnesia.

If the rear rider isnít pulling their share of the weight, is it possible to eject them?

Agree. The censor is stupid as said earlier. It actually once blocked a YouTube link I wanted to post because said link had a 3 character string in it that by itself could be offensive.

It's amazing how often I hear "She's not really pedaling!" from bystanders.

I wonder if it's because she usually isn't really pedaling. Why I oughtta...

Do you consider LesterOfPuppets to be a serious tandem cyclist?
