So did they end up getting some derailleur cables? Or are they still just 39 x 12 singlespeeding the hard way? :)

New cables and housing, for sure. I didn't read the work order.

As far as elevation goes, I've said before, you can't swing a dead cat with a 1000' of elevation gain.

I dunno if there's a Harlem River Drive IRL, but the tune has a really nice groove to it!

I may have to perform a PA rain dance.

Isn't that sort of like hospital food?

Doesnít look like youíre on Mrs. datlasís foie gras program datlas! Youíre supposed to be turning the shortcake into fat, not ride it off...

A few years ago, I spent the night worshiping the porcelain alter after eating at one earlier that day. I havenít eaten at one since. Iím not saying that I got sick by eating there, but... :rolleyes:

Does anyone know how long each stage of acquisition according to the Ferengi should last?

It seems like I’ve been stuck in infatuation far too long. If I had a guideline, at least I would know. There’s still the justification, appropriation, obsession and resale that I have to go thru you know?

There is a Harlem River Drive, which borders the Harlem River. It feeds into the more infamous FDR drive which borders the East River which actually feeds from Long Island Sound, not the Harlem River.

BillyD 05-02-20 07:21 AM

As a noob, visitor or tourist, you do NOT want to drive on the FDR drive.

my kind of climbing. :innocent:

Ditto.

Although since I'm forced to sit around, unable to do much with this hernia & isolation, I've noticed my quads starting to shrivel like an old man. :crash:

I may have to get on my bike and find some modest hills to rebuild. :(

I hate Boston too, but for different reasons than the traffic. It pains me greatly that my grandson and parents live there.

Describes NYC driving precisely. :lol:

I don't hate New York, I only hate the people that live there.;)

But do you like wind? I did that event twice. Both times there was a very strong headwind during much of the return from the island.

You're never going to get fat this way.

No ride today other than a couple of miles around the neighborhood with my daughters.

My 8 year old and I are going to run a couple of miles. She loves doing it and can do 3 miles at an 8:45 pace, not bad for a kid. Running kills my hip ever since I had my labrum repaired back in 16 (which was supposed to remedy the issue) but since she loves it so much, Iíll suffer through. I wish I never had it, it hurts more now than pre-surgery.

have 60 planned for tomorrow afternoon after I drop them off with their mother, will be the most Iíve done in one time since 2017, havenít really ridden much the last three years, maybe had a total of 1000 for all three combined. Iím still managing 18-19 on 40ish mile rides with 2-3k in climbing, so I guess itís not all bad.

Iíve done more than that this year and my goal is 5k. My 40th b-day Fred Sled has definitely got me more motivated to go.

No, I was referring to the minimalist climbing referenced, not the event.

I forgot to mention, in downtown Boston, every street is one way going the opposite direction of where you need to go. :p
