This is just hyperbole. I'm glad you have had good luck with them but they are just cars.

Hmm, wonder what triggers the minivans oil change light. I never paid much attention. In fact I just left the light on the whole time between the last oil change and the one before last. I just go by look, smell, alignment of the stars, etc. :)

No Ouija board?

CX tire choice can get complicated. But, for a beginner, start with a good all-rounder like one of these:

Grifo | Challenge Tires
Cyclocross | MXP - Tubeless Ready Donnelly Cycling

Pedals

I use these - Eggbeater 3 Crankbrothers
Many like Shimano MTB - PD-M540 (shimano.com)

Shoes

The mountain bike version of your favorite cycling shoe.

No mud guards in cyclocross racing.


Thank you!

I suspect this one will cause some consternation. Of course I got the same as basically always...

That's a secret.

Both of our cars have over 100k and are 2016s.

The Acura has 135 and runs like the day it was bought inside and out. The VW is a little rough, not sure how long it will last but I hope to get at least another year out of it.

Step 1: be a serious cyclist
Step 2: we'll talk about that when you've got Step 1 out of the way

I won't lie; the water concerns me about moving to CO. Not sure what to do about it though; not like staying in Texas is a great hedge against global warming.

There's water in Beer. Keep that in your back pocket for emergency use.

I have thought it would be neat to cruise around on one of those vehicles that drives on the tracks. Got any occasional jobs in Knox and neighbouring counties?

Since I don't own a locomotive, I can't help you.

I think you must also be a master of italics to be a serious cyclist. :innocent:

Good news: heading to Asheville this weekend.
Bad news: weather outlook for the weekend and next week is kinda rainy.
