if you ever have an occasion to buy anything from Merlin, add a pair of these to your cart. Along with extra sets of deda tape as well ;).

my hands are quite sweaty (ick) and it chews through tape very quickly, so I tend to stock up when Iím purchasing stuff.


thanks!


For now I secured the area in electrical tape. Iím not ready to part with my cervelo tape yet.

That's essentially what the Park kit is anyway.

When you do - Bontrager Grippytack is great and readily available.

Pre and post 1977. The best of both worlds.

I can't relate to that :innocent: but I think it is rampant on BF.

I know everyone one of you was deeply deeply concerned.

I know I was.
I'm also deeply concerned that I called your Cervelo a Pinarello

You are astute. :rolleyes:

I would absolve you, but I don't have the rank. I'm just a Silver Comet Fred.

Amazing.

I may have gotten 8-10 refills so far. Never paid more than $10 for one. I don't know how it works but it's not through insurance. It's been through these random pharmacies (the current one is in Mayfield, KY). Black market? A few years ago, I could get like two orders from one place and then had to go to a different one. Not sure what's going on now.

Most pharmacies don't double as a lemonade stand during the day. There was a reason you could only get it filled after 7 pm.

So are all the medical offices already on holiday? I sent the nurse a message this morning and no reply.

I got a feeling I should have made a medical call today instead of waiting until tomorrow.

Finally got to a place with a strong enough signal that I can post.

Two rounds of storms hit Wednesday. Lots of thunder and lightning close by. Fortunately, this was not my campsite.

6am; AG has the day off so I ought to go wake her. We get a floating holiday and enough people took today that my morning meeting is cancelled, so I can knock out 40+.
