The Roubaix did fine on today’s ride. I had to stop several times to answer pages, and out in Lancaster County I had a difficult time with “no signal” on my phone. It was a gorgeous fall-like day.

I'm settling into my new persona. I can become anybody I want to become. Perhaps I'll become Velo Vol 2.0

If there were two of you,
Or God forbid, a few of you,
Too much is what it would be!

Went for a ride with the spouse today. While we were stopped for lunch, I tried to start a conversation about how electronic shifting would be nice for her.

That trial balloon was deflated before it ever got inflated.

**** them ******g ****s. :mad:

I've been self-medicating via bicycle.

The iggles will pay the price for that insolence.

That's not how I remember it from my 14-year-old, clandestine Skinemax viewings.

Rough day on the gridiron. 1-3 for my teams.

You can only have one team.

Group rides are dumb.

It was the same way for me. I tried every angle.

That is painful. Feel for him.

What's this about you cruising along at 35 mph? All this talk about old and slow. Can't BS this BS'er.

sbxx1985 09-11-21 03:06 PM

Huge win for you. Lester and Ramona are intoxicated.

Ugh. Makes me dislike the drivers even more.

Electronic shifting wouldn't move the needle for my wife, either... but she's certainly interested in the idea of riding with the assistance of a motor.
