I would love to see the advertisement for this car.

Back when I drove a 95 integra I always wondered what the commercials were like.

Car commercials were weird back then. Thought it was an advertisement for a hospital.

You could just buy one for less than the cost of your Madone.

I feel for you, especially after seeing the news tonight.


Thank you. It was a disaster, but I kicked it into overdrive and got it fired up. I thought this would be the first time it would be dark in all our years of doing this. And, I got the trainer work done, and it's way before ten pm!

Is the display ruined?

Cold weather has hit the west coast.

LesterOfPuppets must be all bundled up beneath an electric blanket.

I didn't think it would be lit tonight. (I think) a kiddie pool blew across that row of candy canes and broke a bunch. Heads were gone from dogs, tipped over, missing ears and tails... :) I pulled up and was pretty distressed, but it's really as good as new now. Being a hoarder helps. Popping up to the garage attic to grab some candy canes was a big help. Now I just need to clean up the back yard. Holy cow. A mural (???), that little pool I mentioned, a bunch of kitchen type trash cans (??) and a bunch of other crap.. Crazy.

I have only one spare cassette, that I'm aware of. A nine speed. I have a dozen or more spare freewheels. They are stored neatly in a Costco yogurt bucket.

I've accumulated 6 spares. A 9 speed take-off from a gear change I did for a friend. Two 10 speed Campys (one is missing the 17t). An 11 speed Campy. and Two Shimano 11 speeds.

Thanks Bill. Yes indeed. I'm surprised I pulled it off. Watching the security cameras in real time, didn't help.

Or you could build it like I build a bike. Mix and match.

I don't know why, but my strong preference is to build with a single groupset for each bike. About as far as I diverge from that is the mix of two generations of Dura Ace on the Ritchey.

I'm guessing that the stated reason was something relating to vagrancy or similar. I'd be like, "I'm not a bum - do you know how much all this **** cost?"

That's the wrong approach. If you can afford all that stuff, then you can afford to pay the fines, as a matter of fact you are most likely to get a ticket that you will probably pay rather than go to court because that's what cops do now. They generate revenue
