All this talk about new bikes. I work on my own bikes, and will not buy a bike with hidden cockpit cables. I don't care if I lose 3 or 4 watts. (not that I have a lot to spare).

I've been cutting my hair since 1994 or 1995. In fact I'm cutting it this weekend. Saved thousands of dollars over those 27 years and countless hours driving to and from and waiting.

Is there an official Tallest sunflower of the year competition?

These guys got 11'4", which is the best I've heard of so far. (bonus points for the Boyz in the Hood tshirt)

If doing what science and your gut tells you is right makes you worry about your friends' reactions, shouldn't that be pretty damning commentary on the company you keep? You would think, amiright?

That's 2014, there should be a yearly record, but yeah, they're probably well short of this year's record.

I'm just going off of FB posts in my feed.

You mean that you haven't been hanging out at Lake Minnetonka and snubbing me? Well, that's good to hear.

We got one last year, when we got out flu shots. We'd never heard of it either.

Uhm. There is a "pneumovax" vaccine that does not protect against pneumonia. It does protect against invasive pneumococcal pneumonia, so it's still worth getting.

There is also the Prevnar 13, which has some data suggesting protection against the 13 strains of strep. pneumonia but these strains are disappearing due to kids getting the vaccine, so we don't ordinarily recommend it either.

Fun Fact:
I've never been to Minnesota save for a short layover at MSP in the '90s.

This guy was bragging about 10 footers. He's obviously got to thin those out a bit if he wants to move up to the big leagues

I got my days mixed up. I thought today was Thursday, and had a ride planned. Turns out it's Friday and I had a dr. appt.. I'm sounding like Velo Vol again.
Could I be becoming Velo Vol?

Still a big-ass flower! Can't imagine one over 30'.

Might start working on a vaccine to prevent that from happening.

I go to a place about 3 bocks from the office. If it's too busy, I come back another time. And my hair is sort of difficult to cut. I sear it has a mind of its own.

When I did ACA's Northern Tier route we spent the second most number of days in MN. Thirteen days, IIRC. That's because we went NE from Moohead before turning SE and eventually going into Minneapolis and then followed the river down to IA. Also took days off at Lake Itasca and Minneapolis. MT was first, at 15 days. It would have been fewer, but we had to wait a an extra day fro Logan Pass to open and later did some short, flat days (~40 miles each) that could have been combined. We kept them short because of the older, slower riders in the group.

I might have passed through AZ, but never spent and significant time there. Don't think I've ever stepped foot in OR. :foo:

It does feel like Thursday.

This begs the question--what's tall for a corn stalk?
