I know. Sad!

I want to order a nicely discounted pair of convertible pants from REI. Sale ends today. I need to add a $7 item to get free shipping, but I donít know what I want.

I ride road tubeless and have plenty of tubes for the touring bike.

I was gonna suggest a new bike.

Had a nice ride this morning, except when I pull the ol' forget you're on a fixie, try to coast, but get bucked off your bike instead trick.

Went for a swim on the well chlorinated pool in order to clean my wounds. Hope that works.

Being down at sea level and with very little elevation nearby, I'd probably never use the little chainring unless I was pedaling in to hurricane headwinds.

Candidate for 1x. :innocent:

The good news is that, once you get it, you get it, and it's a considerably easier. The bad news is that this time of year, the big temp and (importantly) humidity changes can affect how a given grind fineness will pull. I can go the whole winter, with low relative humidity in the house, making only occasional, small adjustments. Not so right now.

Fortunately, espresso technology has advanced far beyond what was available back in Private Ryan's day, and considerably easier to figure out.

A chain or two?
Or perhaps a titanium spork?

No, a couple years ago. His voice was under rated imho.

1. Work is getting busy again.

2. Iíve gone feral on the bike. Only sometimes follow my schedule, prefer riding solo to companioned. Thereís talk of a TT back on the schedule for July and my thought is ďthat would require disciplineĒ. Which Iím equivocal on reobtaining.

3. Long ride yesterday. 80ish Miles/ 6500ish feet. Something of a cluster but I got it done.

4. Cleaned out and reorganized a portion of the kitchen cabinets. Aka the liquor portion. Then moved on to the cookbooks. Tomorrow I hope to tackle the pantry.

5. Mr H turned me on to the Marble Olympics on ESPN. Oddly compelling.

I canít possibly read back over everything. Are their noteworthy highlights? Or same old, same old?

SSDD and this:
My frame cracked at the chainstay from my January wreck. Luck ran out and the dent turned into a catastrophic failure. Prolly due to massive watt output. Trying the crash replacement program from Cannondale through my retailer.

Wife is doing beef stroganoff for dinner. Glass of red wine to accompany it for sure.
Oh, and my stable of awesome products are still awesome. Except for the destroyed bike frame.

Back when I started tri, ST had a thing called ABRO - aero, big ring only.

So you can BRO, bro.

Trying my hand at sourdough. Wish me luck. Started this afternoon so won’t have results until tomorrow.

may the gods of old shine down on you and your sourdough.

So I was just told that I posted a link to porn images in a thread where I apparently posted a photo of my panniers. Trying to find out from the admins what this is all about. Certainly was not intentional, but if I get banned....stay safe. :mad:
