Sorry. Busy day at the bike shop.

This would explain why we probably have different ideas about swimming pool use. There's maybe 3 months out of the year when it's NOT warm enough to get in a pool here.

Definitely time for a Vol road trip. That boy needs some salt potatoes and hand pie.

Who can argue with this?

We try to have some fun while we're taking care of business.

There are always exceptions.

Exceptions are the rule.

Trimmed, edged with the trimmer, fired up the leaf blower, mowed the front and rear grass... 80 volt Kobalt, for the win. The snow blower rocks, too.

Imagine running a small business and not answering the phone. :twitchy:

Sounds like heaven. Email me, then I'll call you if needed, otherwise just I'll just email back to confirm/verify everything.

They're practically the same bike.

I edged the Northeast lawn, it was too hot out to do the Northwest lawn also. Gotta get up early to use hand tools this time of year.

Very nice. Handsome bicycle.

My ascent of the KOM in Innsbruck on Zwift came to an abrupt end, when this happened:

https://cimg1.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...6c1a725cc5.jpg
Looks like the axle broke clean through, possibly a while before I noticed it, and then maybe the pedal let go when the pedal body itself broke. I was, of course, standing on it at the time. Luckily this was on the Canyon, not one of my bikes with a standard geometry, so I didn't get my gonads reinserted forcefully into my abdomen.

I did not escape unscathed, of course.

https://cimg7.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...ada7c52795.jpg
Definitely scathed.

May be time to get some new pedals.

Mojo31 07-30-21 08:05 PM

Well done, abshipp!!

So negative.
