Share with the group how young and fit I appear in person.

We had a nice chat and besides the swollen knees and tape on your infusion site you were awesome.

sadly if I gain any more weight I'll need a bro.

Driving home tonight there were people everywhere, and I mean everywhere, doing gymnastics floor exercises in driveways, lawns, and even in the streets.

Whatever your LBS has in stock that fits you? maybe buy a gravel/adventure bike as well as a regular road bike. Add a MTB and you have most bases covered.

I am contemplating a daybreak ride tomorrow morning. Start temps will be 57F. Who needs a gilet in July? Me, possibly.

assumed it was 1 1/8" like the rest of the good bike companies and baught a Deda 100 stem & now have to return it...... should have checked before ordering.

sad.

I mowed yesterday and my 80v mower batteries were fine but my trimmer and blower(s) all had dead batteries which I've never had happen before. I'm assuming the heat did it to them.

I use them every 3-4 days and have a regular charging routine but my routine failed me yesterday.

genejockey oh, hey - I haven't completely forgotten, but I still haven't laid my hands on that GPU. Digging around in the closet has turned up nothing, so I'll have to brave the basement. I know that I gave some hardware away to one of my ~nephews, but I don't think that the card was included in that, so I'll look a little more.

I wish. I'd take that over looking like I was sprayed down with a hose once I'm done.

I think I will only need it the first 1-2 hours tomorrow. Most days are hot and humid, tomorrow is unusually cool.

I'm getting pretty slick at running new derailleur cables all up in my plastic bike frame. I'll get it down to five minutes by the time I buy bike with electronical shifting.

BillyD 07-30-21 09:33 AM

An hour since last post? Since when did employment responsibilities interfere with your BF postings? This is preposterous, folks! :notamused:

No. It's time for Velo Vol to travel somewhere, anywhere other than Sharpsville.
