I would rather ride in a little more heat and a little less humidity, so I'll wait til later.

I'm an indoor cat the rest of the week.

Non-bicycle repair of the day.

Mounted a new tire to an e-scooter drive wheel.

I don’t think any flatulence was involved.

Did you take advantage of the additional 40% off?

I was tempted by a dusty pink cardigan, but I ultimately resisted.

That would have gone well with your cute Rapha kit.

(Says the guy who is waiting on a shipment that includes lilac.)

That's a lot of tools to carry if you have a flat!!

I missed these summer evenings.

You're going to have to narrow it down a little. :p

I wanted the lilac, but I’m currently not buying any Rapha gear in light of recent events and where their owners spend money.

It's tubeless, so no flats out on the road. ;)

Explain?

I'm just trying to stay away from kit worn by dumpster divers. Don't want to be like them. ;)

Mods May delete this as too P&R

Rapha is owned by the Walton family, who dumps tons of money into pro life and stop the steal candidates. I prefer not to have my money go there.

Thank you for that information. I was not aware of the ownership.

You're really not making the case for me to retire in PA.

WhyFi 07-06-22 09:53 AM

I was aware that they were owned by a pair of the younger Waltons but, given their cycling advocacy and Rapha's leanings, I'd assumed that their views were not necessarily in step with the family in general.

High of 35 Proper today. Humidity currently at 43%. Heading out in about half an hour,

The price tags for the rubbed salmon filets at the Whole Foods near my NJ office read “CONTAINS FISH”.

:rolleyes:

For me 81° would be better. 71° would be much better-er.

Interesting read on the subject: Walmart’s Political Dichotomy Is No Surprise (forbes.com) and Walmart Heirs Shift from Red to Purple: The Evolving Political Contributions of the Nation’s Richest Family | HistPhil

Seems Steuart is an R and Tom appears to be a D. Those are the two that own RZC Investments, the company that invested in Rapha.

Probably because someone, somewhere had to be told.

It reminds me of the saying my brother shared with me - "OSHA regulations are written in smoke and blood." - they exist because someone, somewhere got injured or killed.
