I got skunked, like several others. I did know it was a word, but there were so many other possibilities and even with an elimination word I couldn't cover all of them.

yeah, my brother got shut out too. i actually couldn’t think of more than three words at guess 5, but the other two last letters had already been eliminated.

now devoting more attention to forks - after following genejockey fork search for his circuit

Dang, I don't see a Basso Ascot fork in there. Guess I'll have to stick with the chrome one I have.

I just got my first 3" tube the other day, man what a beast! I briefly thought I should get one of those weird orange tubes, but I'll learn to live with it.

For most rides near home, I just assume the possibility I'll have to hike 5 miles back to the trailhead if I have a tubeless failure on a ride.

By the way, which one's Pink?

I suppose I could have, but I already had it underway. Not likely something I will pursue further. I don't like to cheat, in general.

I was, recently. I couldn't find what I needed, so I ended up with a new steel fork. This was part of my build for my daughter's college "townie" bike.

Meh. I'm not that emotionally invested to be offended by an occasional loss.

An underrated masterpiece of “middle period” Beatles music.
