You better get him out of the dryer. ASPCA doesn't like that type of conduct.

Her favorite thing in the world is a warm lap. Second favorite is a basket of clean clothes :rolleyes:

I need to get better at it. I've got a bit of a mental block since this is the first bike I've ever owned that has toe overlap. I can imagine trying a track stand and falling over spectacularly :roflmao:

What amateur smoker can't hold the cig in their mouth while using their hands? I used to go to a laundromat where the guy cleaning the machines would put his lit cigarette behind his ear while working. He was bald and he would take a few puffs and put it back there and clean some more.

Why I don't even try anymore. Falling = pain.

I'll give it a go if riding with flat pedals.

I thought the low crock pot setting was 200 degrees no?

User error. They obviously need to up their cig game.

RIP Boise State :(

Well I guess Hawkeyes getting beat by Richmond blew my bracket too.

I wish Memphis and Tennessee could meet head-to-head, but they're in opposite brackets and that couldn't happen until the championship game. Memphis is definitely not getting anywhere near that far.

I have a Reminder app on my phone that I think I wore out. :lol:

Good question. Dunno. If the wax is shot, it's shot, so I guess there'd be no harm in firing it up for 3 hours and seeing what temp it gets up to. Just visually, though, the surface of the cooled wax is much more turbulent-looking than what I've ever seen before. That could be because I've never let wax cool with the chain still submerged, though... :foo:

I'll check it out over the weekend.

The google machine says low is 190 and high is 300, cannot attest to veracity of this statement though

Have any of yous Shimano disc brake folks tried out the Kool Stop organic pads (KS-D625)? Shimano pads are backordered for month and months and I'm due.

I have used various aftermarket pads and all have been fine. No specific memory of Kool Stop.

I made the mistake of mowing and fertilizing all lawns on the property without first making sure there was beer in the house, so I had to hustle up to the store directly after spreading Ironite. Got a Tecade michelada and a bag of potato chips.

I do like their rim brake pads. I haven't tried their dick brake pads yet though.

I should probably go through and check all disc brake pad thicknesses this weekend. I'm terrible about checking them.

Now I'm looking forward to michelada weather.

I remember you saying you never had it. I haven't gotten it on the Air since I use Safari for BF, but it still puzzles me.

I’ve already mowed once.
