Thinking about Come Hither Red for the lips. Question is, do you match the nails to the lips or use a complimentary color?

Depends on the rest of the ensemble

No instructions?

I donít have a packable rain jacket or vest either. Probably worth getting

Does it just fold in to the typical rear pockets of a jersey/jacket? If so, you're basically folding the rest of the jacket on top of the pocket that you're folding it in to. I just lay it face up, fold in the left and right sides vertically, at the edge of the pocket that you want to pack in to (essentially in thirds for a typical riding vest), then fold the top down at the upper edge of the pocket, and then turn it inside out in to the pocket.

Packable vests are great. Long sleeve jacket would be nice with rides that'll have big temp swings, but I don't usually see that too much.

In summer rain, I agree to HTFU - getting cold is the problem, not getting wet.

Agree- sometimes the rain feels great

Looking at the page, I saw that a post had been liked from me that I didn't like. :foo:

I made sure to correct that mistake!

Turn the pouch inside out and start stuffing. Easy peasy.

Going to pull the trigger on Vermont bike tour reservations.

Yesterday, my daughter was complaining about an irritant being in her eye. I looked, but couldn't find anything obvious, though her lids were a little puffy. This morning, more complaints, and I mused that it was probably Spring allergies.

...and then I recalled, on Tuesday, overhearing a brief conversation between one of her teachers and another parent, in which "pink eye" was mentioned. :notamused:

So yeah, instead of getting her ready to go to school, we're getting her ready for a visit with the doctor.

Figured it out.

Was nice, Super breathable. The rain didnít get me wet, but my sweat sure did.



Power meter worked well once it stopped being silly. The first 10 miles it kept stopped showing power, and the power it was showing was off.


Once it started working the power seemed a little low, but by the end of the ride I think it was showing normal. Iíll try again tomorrow.

Yep, he bought it from the local Playtri store (which is for sale in case anyone want to be a bike shop owner and get rich). He's only had it a very short while, but it was sure slick looking and seemed well equipped with etap, Hunt carbon wheels, and cable integration. I likey.

He was rugged (censor does not like the word ball-er) too, only one water bottle and it was in the mid-90s when I started riding a little before 5:00.

Whoa, momma! Hey Trsnrtr, have you tried Counter Culture Hologram? I know that I've tried it in the past, but the old set-up really leaned towards darker roasts. It was really nice this morning, though - nice body, sweet, and notes of blueberry. It was my third of the morning, but it was so good that I might have to have another, even if I get twitchy :twitchy:

CC seems to regularly be on sale for Prime Members at Whole Foods and, at my store, at least, it's usually pretty fresh (2-3 weeks out of roast), so I'm going through them again with the new stuff.

single side? Most of my rides are 46/54 which could account for it looking low.
