Trimmed, edged with the trimmer, fired up the leaf blower, mowed the front and rear grass... 80 volt Kobalt, for the win. The snow blower rocks, too.

Imagine running a small business and not answering the phone. :twitchy:

Sounds like heaven. Email me, then I'll call you if needed, otherwise just I'll just email back to confirm/verify everything.

They're practically the same bike.

I edged the Northeast lawn, it was too hot out to do the Northwest lawn also. Gotta get up early to use hand tools this time of year.

This afternoon, after the intervals on the bicycle cycle.

Very nice. Handsome bicycle.

My ascent of the KOM in Innsbruck on Zwift came to an abrupt end, when this happened:

https://cimg1.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...6c1a725cc5.jpg
Looks like the axle broke clean through, possibly a while before I noticed it, and then maybe the pedal let go when the pedal body itself broke. I was, of course, standing on it at the time. Luckily this was on the Canyon, not one of my bikes with a standard geometry, so I didn't get my gonads reinserted forcefully into my abdomen.

I did not escape unscathed, of course.

https://cimg7.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...ada7c52795.jpg
Definitely scathed.

May be time to get some new pedals.

Well done, abshipp!!

So negative.

Not good. Glad you made it out scathed, but not totally messed up. That really could have been bad.

Mainly, receiving orders from vendors into inventory.

Bonus. My new tires were in one of the shipments.

Note:
11 hours in a car with sciatica is less than desirable. Paying the price today. Visual approximation except I'm lucky that mine is bilateral.

Not even a peanut butter jar?:foo:

Why not buy regular oreos and slather on your own peanut butter if you are so inclined?

I hate to see this, especially since I use Look pedals. Back when I used Time pedals I had 2 of them snap off while riding and I fell in the street both times. The third one broke but didn't come apart and that's when the Time rep bought me a pair of Looks.

Glad you're mostly ok.
