1/2 ketchup and 1/2 mayo.

It's...interesting.

Fry sauce is light years ahead of just ketchup or just mayo on fries. This place was responsible for my introduction to the miracle condiment:

I made a non-tubeless ready tire work on the rear of my MTB, but I'm willing to take more chances on that than on a road bike.

Yeah, I wouldn't go ghetto tubeless with road stuff. The good news (unless you're a retrogrouch) is that tubeless-ready rims have mostly taken over the market - it's really hard to bu a quality wheel/rim that isn't tubeless ready - so the next set of wheels that you buy will probably have the capability, should you have an itch to try it out.

Tartar sauce and fries ftw.

I also do not have any grapes.

LesterOfPuppets 04-30-20 09:06 AM

I haven't had fries in months. Sad.

LesterOfPuppets 04-30-20 09:07 AM

No grapes here either.

'bout to cut up a pineapple, tho. :bday:

Only as part of fish and chips though.

I've got a 5lb bag of potatoes that I need to use. I've been looking at various roasted/oven fried potato recipes. One of these days.

I could *probably* get away with it since I'm running 38mm tires at 45-50 psi. But like has been discussed ad-nauseum in the greater 41, I ride like 2k miles per year and get maybe one flat per year, so tubes work out just fine for me right now.

'll probably make the switch when it comes time to replace my rims, but that's even several years away with how much and where I ride. I'm not exactly on the brakes very much here in northern IL :rolleyes:

Now you've done it - three flats incoming.

I still make it at home, occasionally. I do think I prefer just ketchup. I can't do just mayo.

I think I was introduced to it at "Jumbo Burgers" in Ogden UT.

Including the one I have currently or three additional ones?

Additional, of course.

That's the source of all your problems right there.

My current favorite condiment -

Great on things like egg rolls and potstickers. Also good on chicken nugget/tenders. Mixed with mayo, it would probably be great on fries.

:(

Guess I should pick up some more tubes, then.

On my Wednesday night ride it became noticeably soft but didn't go totally flat, I stopped a couple of times to top it off with my pump and after the last time it seemed like it held pressure fine, like the leak fixed itself somehow. Came out into the garage to go to work yesterday and it was totally flat.

I guess I need to put the bike on the stand and clean it anyways after getting drenched, but it's still obnoxious. I'm sure when I get to fixing it I'll be wishing I had a waxed chain like WhyFi

Back in the days when I was doing a century every Sunday, the rear tire did the ride just fine and the following Sunday it was flat. Pumped it up and rode the century. Flat a week later. This went on for a number of weeks,
​​​​​ before I finally fixed it.
How many years since I last rode a century? 4, maybe

True, it's a hardship. But huge sacrifice?. If they didn't give them away, they'd have to dispose of them some other (certainly more costly) way.
