Yep. I have also been a witness to the "sushi guacamole" mistake.

I hope it all works out.

Unsolicited advice on my choice: https://sportsoptical.com/

Seemed that way to me, which is I just went ahead and ordered without due diligence. I would never order bike parts like that. They do apparently send out some product, but have an awful rep.

I will probably go with the Oakley mil/gov site, where I can get the same price and good quality, but not on such cool specs.

KMC is the chain of choice over in C&V.

If you're set on not using quicklinks, probably long term makes sense though to spring for one of the heavier duty tools. On a weird note, it looks like Park discontinued their 'master' (ie. best) line of chain tools -- namely the CT 4.3 ? Whassup with that?

I bought a Shimano 8 speed chain, off the shelf a few years ago. When I went to install it recently, they wanted me to peen the pin. Never heard of such a thing. I will install it with a quicklink when the time comes.

Regarding wasabi, I knew better. I had a senior moment. :innocent:

Here's hoping that particular type of senior moment doesn't show up again. Ever.

Understand completely. Sometimes the shiny wins out over all else, and we throw caution to the wind.

They already had a replacement lined up.

Fun Fact:

The parking lot for the Magic Kingdom is 18 acres bigger than the theme park itself.

Just came back from Mexico and was there for 9 days instead of 5. My son who is vaccinated had corona, not the beer kind. Had to quarantine until he tested negative. Going to ride my bike in the morning.

What did I miss here on the forums?

Cars are bigger than the people they carry.

That's not a rack. It does remind me, though, that I'm glad I don't carry one of those around. My trumpet case is heavy enough.

I've marched with both trumpet and sousaphone.

Trumpet kills your arms after a while, but sousaphone is a real pain in the shoulder.

Thankfully I never had to personally transport a sousaphone.

Happy.

No lawn is the best lawn.

And you didn't tell us? Shame.

I never marched. The trumpet itself is no problem, but the case is weighty. #HeavyDuty

Weightier than a flute perhaps. Try carting around a drum kit.
