There's a gorgeous used rim brake R2 in my size for sale here in the shop that I want so bad.

The R2s are all rim brake. Which year and color is it?

Not so much disc brakes as torus brakes.

Mrs datlas is an oil painter and we typically hang her canvases without any fancy frames. But she is putting a couple of her works in a show for sale so of course she wants me to help mount the paintings in the frames. She bought frames that are deep and put the canvas inside with some folded paper as shims. She told me to screw the canvas stretcher into the frame from behind, but of course as the screw touched the canvas frame it pushed the painting out rather than enter the wood. I tried to drill holes into the frames but even the drill bit pushed the canvas frame out of place. After a few iterations we finally got the job done.

While I lost my patience, I told her “You should have married a carpenter!” to which she responded “I should have married a MUTE!”

Not PC but a good comeback I must say.

Good to know.

I believe it's a 2019. Blue with 105.

Gotta love a snappy comeback.

I did think of @datlas this morning when I saw a white Saturn L300 with temp tags. Not quite one of the original Saturns, but before it was just another GM.

Agreed.

Velo Vol 07-11-21 06:28 PM

Another swimming activity today. No Strava. Otherwise I'd be atop the swimming podium, probably.

So do I, so I don't.

Ah, yes, that's the year after mine, though the same mold. It's the most recent one, with clearance for 28s. It is marvelous.

No. She does not do portraits.

Maybe that's not what he meant. More like painting houses.....

The L300 is yuck. Vauxhall engine I think. Not simple like the original 4 cylinder cars.

My doggie boy is feeling much better now. Just hanging out with his tiger.

Nice!

The first one could be hanging in our house. What size is it?

L-Series Saturns were just GMs. They built them at the GM plant in Wilmington, DE.

I'm holding out for the NFTs.
