Come come now, leave him alone, let natural selection take its course. We'll all be better off for it.

Awww, how cute! When I was a kid, I used to build snow forts, too!

Riding off road is affected by the weather much less than road riding, unless you find mud. Speeds are lower, so the wind isn't as troublesome, and there are no cars, at least where I go.
You're a lot more acclimated to severe cold than I am but I think road riding in the rain sucks, especially if there is cold wind. If there is cold, wet, or wind off road is a better option and a lot more fun.

I've had some really fun rides in weather on mountain bikes and motorcycles in the dirt. We took a track racer up Rocky Peak in the pouring rain and we all had a great time. Lots of snow biking in the mountains when I lived there.

Found a picture with BF member VanceMac on a rainy day in the hills.

It's pretty much standard operating procedure in the recording industry to comp together multiple takes in order to create a polished final product.

So, I did 31 miles on the trainer today and was bragging to my wife about it. Nonplussed, she said,"Do you always do longer trainer rides with your bibs inside out?" :o

Probably started as soon as the advent of recording tape, it being a little hard to do if you're cutting the master while the orchestra plays.

No, probably from getting dressed in a dark room with "blind in one eye and can't see out of the other" syndrome. In all seriousness, I was wearing Assos bibs with a black chamois. I've had trouble with these before due to the quality of the stitching and finishing. Still, I should of noticed sooner or later. :rolleyes:

ONe time I gently asked Mrs. GeneJockey - who was about to got out with her jacket on inside out - when having the seams and tag on the outside had become the fashion.

Mutli-track tape opened up a ton of options. Computer recording is essentially infinity-track tape with a super-easy slice-and-splice option.

But it collapses the soundstage, man!

Stumbled onto another picture of Vance on the road before he became a trackie. I just like the picture.

Did his guads become massive, once he moved to the track?

Ineffectively, apparently.

Looks that way. Trollheim too.

They should open it for people who weren't part of the supposed mess. I got hot takes to post!

For about the first thirty minutes of my trainer ride today, I wondered why my drivetrain was so noisy and the shifting was so poor. I was in the middle of a TT effort at the time, and had to concentrate to block it out. Once my TT lap was done, I thought about it for a second and realized I'd never torqued the rear thru axel. Oops. :o

Be careful! Ignoring an odd feeling in my left pedal because I was in the middle of a race ended up with the pedal breaking off the spindle while I was sprinting, and I clouted my left ankle something fierce! Luckily didn't drive the family jewels back inside my abdomen - I thank sloping top tubes for that.

About to break in a CRP-2! :bday:

Some folks just have too much time on their hands.

Yes, he got bigger all over and I heard he was even coaching at the velodrome but has moved out of the area recently.

I don’t want my recording device to know measure and beat. So much stuff done now is a slave of the machine.

I still run a cute little 1/2” 8tk Otari and mix to a 1/4” machine. I recorded on big 3M machines for a while but they were really meant for studios with a machine room.

The benefit of few tracks is you have to plan stuff, record with the mix in mind, and actually make decisions as you work.
