I have my steel road bike with old-school gearing 53/42 and 13-21 on the trainer, so I keep it at 50%.

Part of the dress code:

"No excessively revealing clothing will be allowed. Clothing emitting offensive odors is not permitted to be worn anywhere on the property."

A woman was relatively recently tossed from an area restaurant for wearing something very revealing. I wonder if it was there.

Based on some of the female clothing I've seen in DF restaurants, I'd say you have to be trying pretty hard to get tossed.

Skanky and smelly are something else.

"And I'm never going back to my old school!"

Even on my C&V rigs, I don't go old school. They all have at least 26t cogs - which, BTW, are hard to find. There are a TON of corncob cassettes and freewheels out there, and a fair number of 14-28s and 13-32s, but 13-26? Hard to find.

I agree that old-school gearing is inferior to 21st century options. I shudder when I recall that I used to go up 10% climbs in a 42/21 as recently as 12 years ago. Never going back to THAT old school!

I wonder how many cyclists gave up riding BITD because they couldn't reasonably turn a 42x21 on a steep climb anymore? I have to say, wide range cassettes and fatter tires are the biggest improvements in cycling these days.

New Bike day!!!!

Was thrown in the trash. Brakes work well, shifting needs some work. Shocks feel like they have some life left. Needs a seat post clamp but otherwise itís in pretty good shape.

Wish it was a little bigger, but it will fit the wife well.

Across the street there is an apartment building. It has a small fenced in yard. Currently there are three dogs running around in it like they are possessed.

Dogs. SMH.

I ran 42x28 in the late 80s and switched to 39x28 low when I moved to the mountains in 1994. I built the CAAD5 with a triple in 2001 so I would have a low if I needed it. Now we have compacts.
I could live with a 39x25 low for a lot of stuff but not going into the mountains.

See immediately above.

That is part of their dress code for all their locations in the U.S. Also prohibited are things like sleeveless shorts, hats, baggy pants, athletic wear, etc.

That only works if you live in the flatlands, or only ever tool around town. And a flat town at that!
