What do you mean...if? You eat an elephant one bite at a time.

I think these people are gambling that they will be able to avoid contracting the disease. I think we are going to be dealing with this for generations. They aren't getting away from it.
even if/when the vaccines are approved they will still say it's a rubber stamp. Conspiracies everywhere. Can't be trusted.

I blame mobile browsing. You're right though.

That Sucks, I know the feeling. I broke the drive side crank from my original exograhm 10 speed set up. Same thing cracked at the pedal insert.

And yet every time I see a "Fresh Oil" sign, my bike gets all covered in tar and stone chips.

Seen Power Torque stuff. That looks like the way Shimano cranks bolt together. Don't know if it will fit in the Ultra Torque cups.
I know a Campagnolo freak who might have the answers. I should call him. I only call him when I want something.

The space between the rings if I remember correctly

Very little stopping for traffic controls.

The premise to this quiz is that bears are dangerous. No.

And to go further, this is one of my frustrations with companies (hi Shimano!) trying to weather the storm with their elaborate supply chains "until things get back to normal" instead of adapting and streamlining.

Also employers like mine wanting to draw a line under this and get back to acting like it's 2019.

Let's call it the edge of the boondocks.

Singles. We canít hardly ride our tandem any more. I tried to sell it last year and never got a nibble.

Of course, this is usually only said on days where I already have low expectations of nookie.

So, you are saying that should work most days?

Semi-kudos better than none.

There are worse things than a 45 mile ride - kudos!

YMMV.

This is why pre-kudos isn't a thing, datlas

Now that you mention it, bampilot06 has been hanging out with horses, hasn't he?

I'm going with running red lights :)

You know what we used to say - No cop, no stop.

Nonsense! I ALWAYS stop at every stop sign and there are no witnesses to say otherwise!
