I knew. I was all excited when he got that property in Oak Ridge, that was before we found out it was going to be for eBikes though.

Last night was probably the worst night of my life, and what makes even worse, I will have to experience again and again until June 2nd.

Long story short I am operating on zero sleep on my first of only 2 days off.

I was tempted to fly back there to hold signs and yell.

In related news, I'm trying not to buy bikes right now, but I've always wanted one of these. Looks kinda rough but only $300...

My first real race bike was a LeMond Zurich. Very nice ride. I wish I still had it.

Maybe I'll HTFU this weekend, ride over there, and see if the story checks out. See if they need a consultant to show them what a proper bicycle looks like.

Are those the correct brakes and fork? Hard time believing they are.

I'm not dumpster diving for an ebike.

Slow night.

Played the audio from this concert at the shop early last week. Made for a good day :)

I saw David Byrne's "American Utopia" tour in Chicago a few years ago. One of the best concerts I've ever seen.

I got tested for free without a long wait Wednesday 1/13. Received results early this morning 1/21 :rolleyes:. Positive :(

Sorry, no. We don't do pics. We imprint memories in our psyches. Those around us though took more than enough for all of us.

Whenever SSS and I go somewhere, I find myself taking one or two pictures of any interesting places we go just so I can scroll back through an album and remember what things looked and felt like.

I believe that's a Bontrager "Satellite" fork. Thought it was a Wound Up for a bit.

Matches the wheels, at least.

​​​​​​SSS hasn't had taste or smell for about a week, so this is the result we were expecting even though their test was negative.

Although apparently they got the sinus swab (while I submitted a saliva sample) and didn't feel like they were receiving a lobotomy so maybe the technician didn't perform the test correctly.

We're both feeling mostly normal thankfully. Still need to get boosted whenever it's recommended post infection.

Yeah the Poprad disc models came like that. Those Bontrager saddles are the WORST, at least according to my ass they are. I'm not a fan of those bars either.

Maybe I should wait for an orange Poprad to show up though. I haven't had an orange bike in quite some time.

we were only supposed to get .5 inches of snow. Forecast, roads would have been clear by now.

Sigh, we got 5 inches. Looking like the trainer.

datlas 01-22-22 06:43 AM

It’s 9 degrees here so also looking at the trainer. Might even use it.
