I am here at work, stomping out disease.

Pffft - what a loser you are!

Yeah bampilot06. Trying to raise questions about my memory.

He must be new around here. The rest of us know that you only use pictures from Google Images.

Let's see more.

They're nice light bars, and since I went to 400 width on the Focus, I've been OK with that. Taking an ounce or two off the NP won't hurt either.

Pretty icy out there already and the snow is coming. MTB day tomorrow.

I can feel the cold radiating from my computer monitor.

LAJ 10-15-21 07:21 AM

It's a dry cold.

Mojo31 10-15-21 07:23 AM

Be careful, those things can be lethal.


Both the bars and the cold.

Odd thing to point out, given that LesterOfPuppets got his image from google, too.

Sure, but that doesn't make this statement false....

rjones28 owes me an apology.

We have a couple of big trees in our backyard that are coming down today. One is a big oak that is apparently too close to the house, the other is a big ash that has ash borer disease and at risk to fall on the house in the future.

Tree work is not cheap. The whole job is costing almost as much as a new crabon fiber bike with Dura Ace Di2.

Hopefully you got them before the roots went into the sewer mainline... That mainline was a Dogma F10 with the same groupset.

Yeah. Everyone I have ever known who needed serious tree work has mentioned how expensive it is. It's one of those things that the overwhelming majority of people cannot do for themselves, even in this DIY age.

Need to replace a kitchen faucet? You run to Lowe's, but a new one and change it out. You need to fell a 50' oak tree? I highly recommend not running to Lowe's for a chain saw and a pair of safety glasses.

Right. At least get a pole saw.

I'm sorry that you won't share pictures of your bike with the group.

38.9 miles this morning. It hurts to walk but riding I bike I felt fine. Shoulder discomfort around mile 30.

That's cheaper than fixing the house when you futz it up trying to remove the trees yourself.

I had two large pine trees taken down earlier this year I think it was like 800 dollars.

I know I saw his cursed seat post once.

disclaimer:
weird, It locked me out when I posted this earlier and it deleted the rest of my post. Sorry for posting this twice. It does not reflect me feelings towards this issue.
