Yup, if you don't haven't saved those splined plastic cores they come on, and, of course, the locking end pieces.

If you waxed, it would only be a bad puzzle, which is much better than a bad, greasy puzzle.

I do save those plastic cylinders the cassettes come with. But drop them from a couple feet and the cogs all go flying.

Et tu, MoAlpha?

Only when appropriate.

Zipties, plus a plastic bag. Keeps the grease contained. Also, the boxes the new one comes in is a good place to put the take-off.

Think of the speed you could have reached with that tailwind.

It's only appropriate if I do it.

Well, I went for it. the 1995 Litespeed Ultimate should be on its way presently. It's currently kitted with Campy, 1995-era Chorus with a Racing T triple. One reason it probably didn't sell is that the seller made clear the NDS crank is cracked. That's not an issue because I don't want the 170mm Racing T crank anyhow, and I have a 175 version in much better shape, even including a BSA BB. It needs a new stem, bars, saddle, and maybe seatpost, but I have all that, too. The wheels are mismatched, but I think I have something close enough to the rear - a 32h Chorus hub laced to Mavic Reflex rim.

My plan is to get it set up with the triple and the 8speed Chorus (and the ugly Gen. 1 Ergopower levers) and ride it a while, while I figure out how I want to build it. I have 1/3 of a 7410 Dura Ace groupset, and I could go that way, but that limits me to 8 speeds and 26t max in the rear. I could also do it more modern, but then the 7410 stuff lies fallow.

Ah, well. Time will tell. Maybe I'll hate the thing and want to flip it?

Now big john can make fun of me.

Time to ride. Oh yes.

Into the setting sun I go.

I beg to differ. Mature males are not good to eat, but younger males and sows are good. The meat is leaner than domestic so it benefits from braising, but it's tasty.

Because they’re feral? I’ve had some terrific boar sausage, both fresh and cured. Assume it was farm-raised.

A local butcher who specialized in “exotic” meats used to make sausage with lingonberries. Orgasmic. I was bummed when he retired. One time he took a whole rabbit out of the window, took it in the back and skinned it for me.

Just have to agree to disagree.

Males get a rank flavor, which gets worse as they age. The meat itself is leaner and darker than domestic pork, not as tender. I went hunting feral pigs with friends - who were luckier than I was - and we ended up getting 2. I took the ribs - the WHOLE ribs from spine to sternum, we didn't divide them the way butchers do - and when I BBQ'd them The Boys wolfed them down and gnawed on the bones. The rest I made into various forms of chili, or pozole.
