Marigold products tend to be awesome.

Just found out about this.

Right. Dogs should never wear hats. They are allowed to wear costumes.

Wait. Aren't you supposed to wear coveralls? So confusing.

If you see someone in coveralls, and he has a greasy rag hanging out of his back pocket, ask him to check your oil.

You would be if you had a vest.

Thank you. Still ticking. Thinking back, I think I've seen 188, but that was many years ago. 186 was just surprising to me.

Serotta is right down the street from my church. Iíve never walked into the studio even though itís right there, I should be ashamed.

Apart from inventory management, I was on wheel duty today. All I have to say, is that I dislike aluminum spoke nipples.

And yet there are very few options for things like the TriSpoke. The current options are either painfully narrow, front-only, or both.

Didn't it close?

Donít think so. They closed for a while then came back. Looks like theyíre making titanium now based on the website.

It rained overnight and the roads are wet, we also celebrated a bit too much. Trying to drag myself out to ride, but this coffee is too good.

Ah I see. The initial press release indicates steel and aluminum as well, and Ti beginning in early summer. That was in February though, and this has been a year of best-laid plans. When it's time for my next I may give them a call; that'd be a very special brand for me.

New saddle is fantastic. First 10 miles were a mix between pleasure and pain. Every time I was about to stop to make an adjustment it would start to feel good. At the 10 mile mark I lowered it another degree, and fhat made a world of difference. thanks

I felt like Velo Vol or Bah Humbug this morning - it was a chilly 55į and I wasn't planning on keeping my HR much higher than 100, so I donned my thermal knickers and a LS thermal jersey. Brrrrr.

I canít even imagine what 55 feels like right now. Heat index over 105 again today.

I somehow got a 2.5 hour break between meetings today so I decided to wait until then to go ride. Itís humid AF here right now anyway

Coffee is barely helping this morning.

Trying to decide what's the lesser of two evils, tossing and turning all night or a groggy melatonin hangover.

IKR?

Not that gross here, but we've been a pretty consistent 70į/85-90į for a while now.

We had a 60į low this morning when I was off to work, but it was already sunny and humid so it certainly didn't feel that way.

Pretty much what we've had for the last 3 or 4 weeks, maybe a few degrees cooler.

We've had 10-13" of rain the last two weeks. I mowed Saturday and again yesterday and it would have choked my mower by tomorrow.

Dang, I wish you could send some this way. Yesterday evening we were forecast to get an intense soaker. Instead we got one of those 20 minute showers which are only useful if you get them daily.
