Yeah, I posted a screen grab of the how-to video for sbxx1985 , but I still haven't received one in the mail from him yet. :(

Anyway,


The order will...apply to people who cannot keep six feet away from others in public settings, such as on a bus or subway, a crowded sidewalk or inside a grocery store.
not, I note, a rural road.

I've been looking at Lezyne pumps lately - they're making Drives/Tech Drives in Small sizes now, 170mm. I'll prolly get a red HV version.

P.S. I didn't know you play the piano.

I don't. The kids do. Daughter #1 is quite good. She can have the piano once she lands somewhere semi-permanently. The piano was originally bought by my parents around 1962, made its way to us about 17 years ago.

I generally like Lezyne pumps. As you may recall from 2 days ago, my super-pump is a Lezyne CNC floor pump with a Hirame head. It's the bees knees!

I rode. It was great. As I was cresting a climb some riders were going the other way. The last one says "What's up John"? I have no idea who he was. He had a mask on but I didn't recognize the Pinarrelo either.

Whyfi, was it you that bought the cycling hoodie thing a couple months back? if so what was it?

I was looking at the pearl izumi versa hoodie, made me think of it.

If you spend much time on social media it doesn't come as a big surprise that people are confused about such things.

The laser thing in that video you posted is interesting, though the guy who made it needs to be more entertaining to go viral.

Does that Strava beacon thing broadcast where you're riding? Maybe you have stalkers?

She informed me that it's going to be donated to a local food bank. #disappointed

I don't need more money. A donation to a local food bank is at the top of my list also.

I have no electronics on my bikes. I don't own a cell phone. I've never posted on Strava.

My dad has a smart phone. Texting is his preferred method of communication.

I agree. Definitely had potential.

We won't get a check, but our daughter will. She lives hand to mouth on a doctoral training grant in Ireland, but only because we are stingy with her for her own good. I think she should donate at least a portion of that check, but my wife is against raising the subject. She's usually correct about such things.

I don't think it's in effect yet. Your last stroll in freedom.

Since we're talking about the ignorant masses I confess I still don't know how long a virus can survive in the wild. Like on a door handle or box or faucet.
