He wanted it for trips to the mountains, but it burns so much gas going uphill he kinda soured on it.

Hard to imagine much worse mileage than a big block Suburban.

I had 2 of those "square body" trucks. The first one was a heavy 3/4 ton with a 454 and stick shift. It was good for about 8 mpg. I worked on it a bit and got it up to 10 mpg, a substantial improvement. It was a 74 so it even had points.
The other one was a 77 heavy duty 1/2 ton, 350 with automatic. 10 mpg. I put a more modern overdrive trans with lock up torque converter. It made it cruise nice but it still got 10 mpg, unless the camper was on it , then it got 7 or 8 mpg.

Oh boy.

I found a cone and cone filters, and used that with good success

Pourover, combined with very fine-ground beans, produces wonderful coffee.

Getting ready to ride. It’s cold. I miss the warm California sun.

But just think how much you are saving in taxes.

I was wondering if he went away angry, or just taking a breather.

Maybe Velo Vol is out riding his new ebike and doesn't have time for us anymore.

I think he is taking a time out to watch those YouTube videos I have sent him. He finally realized his music education was incomplete.

Velo Vol has left the building

seedsbelize2 03-05-22 08:54 AM

It's Saturday already again, no?

Hitting 'refresh' on a tracking number and on bam's Strava. Not sure which is providing more anxiety. :o

Well, his race didn't come to an abrupt stop and it was more than 30min, both good signs. Looking forward to what he has to say later.

Thoughts on gum wall tires on a modern carbon bike with matte silver paint?
