That's less than half of the information needed.

I have never noticed. But this is clearly a St. Patrick's thing going on. It's more than 2 months away.

Easter candy will likely be on the shelves by mid-February.

It's a brave new world where Christmas stuff is up the day after Halloween.

2001 Chevy Venture and 2003 Pontiac Montana.

Having two vastly improves chances that at least one of them runs and drives at any given moment.

Also reminds me of a retired MG I worked for for a while, who used to say he was going to bend my dog tags and send me to Ft. Polk.

I was born in Camp Polk

What's the worst that could happen? Just get a 400mm seatpost and a 150mm stem.

Even barbaric football players don't play in the mud anymore.

Chainrings and FD for Interim Build #2 are 'Out For Delivery'. Replacement crank fixing bolt to match the one original that came with the cranks is set to arrive on the 20th, as are the cables. LBS sez he can swap the Athena BB for the Dura Ace 'while you wait'. It looks like this weekend will be the debut and farewell performance for Interim Build #1.

Anyone want a pair of Sachs New Success Ergos and RD?

Someone once told me it was actually pretty nice.

I remember the time in High School when we had a big thunderstorm roll through town just before football practice, so it wasn't raining but the practice field was completely sodden. That was fun. One of the wide receivers told the QB to throw the ball long so he could dive for it and slide in the mud.

So is saddle overhang a thing?? :twitchy:

I climbed that way when I was a novice and still do, when Iím in survival mode.

I recommend that you try a 56.

I'm also that kind of roadie from time-to-time. Mainly, for Mrs. rjones28.

I know nothing about Campy stuff.

I was unable to install a SRAM quicklink on a Shimano chain recently. I didn't try really hard. I just went and got a Shimano compatible one. In my old age I find myself using quicklinks and cartridge BBS more than I used to

This one might not be either
