Velo Vol You’ll be happy to know that I rode by several pumpkin fields and they look pretty good. I even posted a pic on my Strava activity today. Some fields are just starting to blossom and then the pumpkins will begin to grow. First harvest will begin in September.

Glad I check my tires before every ride - I just pulled a shard of glass out of the rear. May just swap them this weekend; the rear is getting squared off.

Or maybe I'll see how long they can go. There's certainly plenty left on the wear indicators.

I spent most of my working life in the auto repair business. We wrote the book.

I was thinking how in winter we have five straight days of clouds (how does water even evaporate when it's 40F?).

But when Velo Vol is mowing in July, the sun goes into cook mode and we don't have a cloud to cover it for hours.

I don't get it.

It's a hard knock life.

Why are they so small? Because it was cold until June?

I didn't know that either. Street view from 2014 has an "Available" sign out front, so Lemond must've moved in after that.

It's tucked in behind the ORNL carbon fibre lab. I like how the LeMond facility has more security than ORNL. Big ol' fence around it and a guard shack at the gate!

Gotta keep Lance and his minions out, you know.

Iím not sure they are small but if they are, there could be a couple reasons. We had a very wet spring and a lot of our crops got planted late. Second, the field in the pic is in one of the last areas to be harvested so it was probably planted later than the first fields to be picked.

A full rebuild is more involved than just replacing the air spring seals, that's why they charge $150.

Very possible!

​​​​​​I was surprised as well.

They did perform quite well on my ride tonight - probably the best in a while. So I guess I'll just see if they glaze over again.

The stickum is gone. Alas. I can prolly come up with something to stick it on with

Tonight was pretty lovely. Wife made a tomato pie and we spent a lot of time out on our balcony.

Comet NEOWISE is also quite pretty through binoculars.

Pie:

Clearly a grinder is not a grinder.

That text "FOR EMERGENCY USE ONLY" might suggest it's a get-you-home solution, not for long-term as you were asking earlier.

i may get 150 depending on the weather today and tomorrow

I've never had tomato pie and will have to do some research. Dang, that looks very good.

Do I need a special knife to make it?

I'm still gonna try patching it with a tube patch, possibly inside and out.

My future includes temps from Hades so I'll be lucky to get 150 miles, also. :(

Bad HRV numbers again this morning after yesterday's TT.

I think the street is a little wet, but I don't feel like checking.
