Like I wouldn't recognize Minka or the movie.

He said he does not know but sent me some pics. I canít quite tell. The last thing I want to haul in my carry on luggage is a pedal wrench that will prolly get confiscated by the TSA.

First world problems, for sure.

Anyone know about these pedals? See pics.

Any 15mm wrench will do. I see a hole, but it doesn't look allen friendly

In honor of Pcad . . . he would have loved it.

Depressing.

It was? Oh well. I'm more of a Zooey guy, anyway.

Dodged that particular bullet. It got up to 80 today here in San Mateo. It was 94 at The Ancestral Home. I escaped just in time.

At the end of the day, it's probably better that I passed on them since they were white and I'm not that good of a cyclist.

Maybe it's the lack of white shoes holding you back?

I knew a couple of guys who were obsessed with Sheena. Never got it. At least Cecile rides a bike.

Have you noticed that Eva Pilgrim from Action News has gone national? She has even hosted GMA on the weekends.

One of my cycling buddies had a major crush on Sheena and was rubbing everyone's face in the fact that he moved to DC when she did. Like most of us really care? I don't get that but whatever turns you on.

Paid the shipping on the new, replacement hoop yesterday. 15 to 25 days. Been riding my Superteam 50mm with Panaracer raceD evo3 tires on them. They are very close to the gp5000 in rolling resistance, but my butt says they have a better ride. About 200 miles on them so far, pretty satisfied with their performance. Leaves me to wonder if the raceA evo 4s are much better.
. I bought these as a pair for $65.00 in the off season. They are now just as expensive as 5k's. So no real savings but at least there is a good performing alternative.

It has been T storming here since around 1am. I have accepted the fact that I will never have grass in the areas that I had the landscaping removed from. I'm not buying any more grass seed.

WhyFi 08-12-21 06:54 AM

Oy. Long day, yesterday, and still feeling wiped out this morning.

We knocked off one of the activities on our family summer list: a visit to a MN Vikings training camp practice. It was a joint practice with the Broncos, so it was fun to see some spirited/chippy drills and Von Miller even came over to the bleachers to lead a "Skol" chant with the crowd.

After that was the group's Wed Night Ride, of course. I wasn't feeling horrible, but I couldn't muster up too much pep. Low Fe day, I suppose. It didn't help that a very strong, occasional guest rider showed up, and set a speedy pace much of the time. I did still take the most coveted town sign from him, though. :p

go to a landscape supply store and get a bag of hydraulic mulch - if you spread it by hand over the seed and wet it down immediately, it'll hold the seed down almost the same as having it hydroseeded.

May have to transition at some point - gray may be the first step.

We have Bermuda grass that typically spreads like crazy, but this year I have two spots in the front where I just cannot get it to cover. Everywhere else is as thick as a lawn can be.

Von Miller is a bad ass on and off the field.

Oh, that reminds me - one of the perks of going to the training camp was half-price tickets for the MN/Den preseason game on Sat, so we'll be going to that, too. Not sure how much, if at all, the starters will play with the new 3-game preseason, but it'll be fun, regardless - all of those guys are insane athletes and the stadium is just awesome, too.

I will concider this if I decide for a 4th attempt. I wouldn't hold my breath though. Weeds are green too.

You'll have a good time. Pre Season games are the warm up for the fans too. I'm not sure about restrictions, but these may be the first games without them, so it may be at another level.
