A conundrum, sort of. My backspace key, and then my enter key have become intermittent. A few minutes ago I discovered it's only on the Brave browser. On Chrome everything works fine. In order to put Brave on the Chromebook, I had to first have Linux. A tangled web. We have one or two it folks here. Any idea where to start?

You mean tubeless has some downsides?? :innocent:

How big are they? The thing I rode today had 32s and they felt firm @60 psi. I felt like they could go quite a bit lower for dirt.

Likely will need crank, long cage RD, cassette and chain to achieve "proper" gravel gearing.

That's what I was afraid of. Then the brake issues need to be sorted, too. I don't know if the new rear wheel he bought will work.

He said I could keep it for a few weeks to decide.

Adventures while out mowing

(obviously not adventures mowing, LAJ)

I was out mowing with my dad, driving a senior Honda (not the senior Honda), when all of a sudden the mower trailer starts swerving from side to side. wut

I applied the brakes, not very hard, and the trailer bangs into the bumper. wut wut

Turns out a pin that holds the hitch together came out, and the hitch came apart.. Fortunately it wasn't on a busy road, or at a high speed. A passer by stopped and offered a replacement for the lost pin.

Got to the radio station to mow, and I saw not one, but six deers dash across the neighbouring horse pasture and jump over the fence. wut

Why not?

Obviously. Of course, lack of maintenance and avoiding proper safety measures could very well be called an adventure. Avoidable, but still enough to make orifices pucker.

A number of the nicer houses in the FoCo area have basements with home theaters and wet bars in the basement. This is now on my list of requirements.

The home theater can be easily converted to a pain cave with IMAX-like experience with the big screen.

It reminds you of that because you don't know what you're looking at. Training load is actually pretty easy to understand and makes a lot of sense when you do. Is it perfect? Of course not - it's not going to account for externals like illness or poor sleep - but in terms of tracking the physiological toll of exercise with respect to time, it does a very good job.

Not sure what this means but for once living in monster truck land paid off.

I'm pretty sure that I just ensured that the Twin Cities will experience at least another two weeks of ****** cycling weather.

Since it was going to get up to 58į or so during my ride, I decided to make it my first bare-legged ride of the year - no tights or warmers. This, of course, meant that I had to at least do a quick and dirty shearing of my leg fur, even though I haven't consulted the 10-day forecast in a while - the cycling gods will surely punish me, and those near me, for such hubris.

Even now I'm a yard from a 55" TV. The home theater will be my fortress of solitude for when life is too overstimulating. The trainer will likely be in the office.

So my stock chart analogy holds up well.

That area is too far - the target is really not more than 20 minutes from the E Harmony/ Ziegler intersection. That one's too far, so more like this:
