That was tough. I guessed twice just out of the blue, then I started concentrating on each individual puzzle, starting by the one I seemed to be closest to getting, by the time I got to the last word, I had all 5 letters guessed already, just had to figure out what they spelled. Maybe I'll try just one out of the blue guess on the next one.

Right. My strategy was crap until I decided on hope as a strategy, and that ended up being marginally better.

Im watching the Nor Cal youtube guy, I wish we had the pre season crit training series they have out in San Fran, I feel like I know nothing. I get nervous just thinking about it…….

I hear Larry Sellerz was doing those Early Bird crit practices, so consider yourself lucky!:roflmao2:

Tried to kill my legs this weekend. 17.5km tramp with 770m of elevation gain (and loss) yesterday. 10.5km tramp with 1,000m of elevation gain (and loss) today. some of that up and down was rather steep. thankfully I work from home on Monday. no walking up and down steps required.

It’s a cool 16F. Gonna wait until later to ride, when it will be a sunny 20. Stupid winter.

We are going to be near 50° today but batten down the hatches! Probably ride anyway.

Yeah, this one was easier for me than yesterday. I would have guessed right the third time but went ahead and did a third exploratory word to see I caught a fifth letter.

Wow, I don't remember those calipers, there were some funky ones in early disc days though.

This popped up on FB feed. No real interest in the bike other than curiosity.

Did look into the stand because I like CF bling stuff, but at $650 no thanky..

That's an AMP Research bike. Horst Leitner of Horst Link fame was the designer. I think those are Rock Shox calipers.

If you're springing for a $12K bike, what's another $650 for a stand?

LAJ 02-20-22 09:58 AM

That stand would be easy enough to make, if you want gaudy on the cheap.

Better question is what’s a $650 when you are not springing for a $12K bike? The answer is “a lot.”

I get to go shopping for a MOTB dress today, so already feeling poor.

I’d get it if it was $100 max and didn’t have the decals on it.

Ultimate weight weenieism.

Yeah, I used to want one of those really bad BITD, and have come close to buying one of the Mongoose AMPs a few times.

Thanks for the ID on the calipers,

My friend had a Litespeed hardtail with an AMP fork back in the early 90s. It was super light but flexy and that fork didn't have much travel or damping.

Spring Training flashback! Back in 2013, it snowed on the Diamondbacks/Rockies facilities just days before Spring Training was to start and people were shook! :)

I didn't wind up going to the GCU baseball opener Friday, but they lost 4-3, then last night they got killed! Today's 'Lopes game is $5, and it's only $2 more to sit in row 14 behind home plate at the Sun Devil's game, so I think I'll trek all the way to Tempe for some baseball today.

My ex brought by a bunch of stuff she wants me to hold onto while she has her place painted, including a bunch of Tiffany’s jewelry and a 1949 baseball autographed by, among others, Stan Musial.
