9th bike obtained. It's in great shape, has nearly all its original 6297 and 6208 bits. Will still need disassembly, cleaning, etc. but it's actually rideable at the moment. I have to decide what to do with about the original 1985 'Bernard Hinault' model Turbo saddle. I think it's restorable, but I have to look up how.. The seller had replaced the original 6207 brakes with 7401 Dual Pivot brakes, and someone prior to that had replaced the 6207 non-aero brake levers with later aero levers. I also bought, on a whim, a pair of 6209 aero levers, which I might use. If I get 6207 or 6208 levers, there's the perennial problem with lever hoods. The as-yet unanswered question - do I care?

Currently itching to take the Centurion apart, but the visiting dogs are still in possession of the garage. Grrr....

I let her and the rest of her staff know in no uncertain terms how incorrect she was and what they all could do with their services. If you are that effing sensitive what the hell are you doing dealing with the public in the first place? Grow up.

Yes, except true to form, I was very nice. I even stopped at the desk on the way out to make sure there were no ill feelings.

Time to go postal perhaps?

The last hood replacement I did involved hoods from cheap, unbranded levers. They went onto tri-color levers.

I was at an gathering of the olds. Sat down at a table with some people for lunch. I didn't know them, but my dad did.

The first thing the guy said was "You remember when" and then--I kid you not--he mentions a meeting in Sharpsburg, at Buhl Park. It was amazing.

Incorrect.

Had this for lunch at 2:30 came home and napped for 90 minutes. New pain medication isn't helping much.
Took half of it home for lunch tomorrow.

That sounds really good.

It was a beautiful day here just under 80 degrees and we had a nice mtb ride. Not technical but lots of climbing both ways. My friend stayed with me for a lot of the climbs because we were talking but she did go ahead a few times like I knew she could.
I don't know if anyone here remembers BF member Ovoleg but I saw him up there today. He rode with my road club on and off for years but I haven't seen him in a long time. I didn't know he had a mountain bike and apparently he has a girlfriend, too. It was good to see them. I have some old pics from the area.

This is called Eagle Rock. It's 200 feet tall and there are dirt roads above and below it.

No flat ground.

Pretty sure I would not survive to the bottom, and I am okay with that.

My meal was just fine.

Gorgeous but challenging terrain reminds me of this.

That's pretty tame for Safa Brian's videos. I ride in those mountains but not like that. Today we were mountain biking in that same range a bit southeast of the video location.

There were Guinea hens by the side of the road, on my Thursday ride.

I could hear them when I saw that sign. They can make a racket.

You are correct. Can't believe I called that wrong considering this one lived in my garage for 4 years.

Still rather be carving the canyons in that rather than suicide riding down a big hill.

Damn straight. Have a Taycan 4S now.

They've all been white/black.
