Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Around us, the default is the heavier plastic bags that they charge you for. You have to ask for paper.

I bought aboat that was made in Penticton once. The owner of the company that built it drove it to DFW for delivery. Very long drive.

“Truck lane 1/2 mile” is a sign you don’t want to see in the middle of a 6 mile climb.

Why not? I bought a couple of clients William Henry pocket knives one year for Christmas. They set me back more than a few hundred each.

Mrs. rjones28 is in the market for a new chef's knife. It will likely cost hundreds of dollars.

Just cause you do it doesn't mean it's smart.

Video says one knife costs over than $3,000. SMH.

UPDATE: No caboose. It does have a boxcar full of "scientists," though.

Considering the revenue my firm realized over the course of the year due to those guys, it was smart. Thrifty is not always smart.

Flippers are a divisive topic in knife circles, but it's not uncommon for someone to buy a knife as an "investment," and sell it for a tidy profit down the line.

What spacers would I need to put a 9 speed cassette on a kickr.

And would my wife’s sora cassette be compatible with my 9 speed ultegra found on my ritchey.

Thinking ahead. I would rather use the ritchey on the trainer, than constantly swapping cassettes.

However, might not matter. Just found out I will officially be based in either LAX or LGA, so the Ritchdy will be going where I go and staying.
