I, for some reason, have lots and lots of.bar end plugs. And a whole large ziploc full of cantilever brake parts. One has to wonder how those things accumulate in such large quantities. And hub shells. Without all the guts. Cannibalism I guess.
One day I will find someone who will be very excited to take it all off my hands.

Do it.

How's the Lady Vols Bowling squad shaping up this year?

I tried coffee-flavored beer, back when one of the local brewers made a batch. Nope.

I love a little espresso added to an IPA.

Now htfu, and go ride your bike.

On another point. In the five plus years I've been riding in these parts, I remember not one negative incident. Last time out I witnessed two aggressive behaviors in a 22 mile ride.

Aha. Thanks! Another great song to download and send to daughter to amaze and annoy her.

I see that now.

Do they have a band that plays on the sidelines like football?

No women's bowling at UT? Sad.

Any plans to move to Columbus Ohio?

It's little consolation the four months of the year I'm mostly frozen, though.

Doubtful. You got to go to the $$$ sports to see the band magic.

Not really. There's no gymnastics team, either.

Only question is do I get the RTL510 for $150 or the RTL515 for $200. DCRainmaker says the main benefits are the newer device has bluetooth and maybe a couple extra modes but really not much of a difference so I am inclined to get the 510.

Should I start a thread? With a poll???

If you’re going to be riding groups a lot, I think the new one’s “peloton” mode would be beneficial. Though you can simply turn the light off while keeping the radar on with the 510.

And yes, a poll is definitely needed!

So am I (both on the askeered and glasses part). I’ve been wearing some sort of vision correction since I was less than 7 years old and a couple of years back started wearing multi focal contacts. I may actually have to get the “near” power bumped up soon :notamused:

I think by the third ride I was “hooked”.

Bah Humbug, stay away from State College, PA please :o

Meant to ask you about this. How'd you get that little treat?

People fact checking my bird tweet. :notamused:

So are all the medical offices already on holiday? I sent the nurse a message this morning and no reply.
