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

In Texas? It doesn't get that cold in Texas. 92 again today. We're rolling along 10-15° above normal. We can only hope that didn't continue past March.

We get our cabbage from cabbage and onions. We both enjoy sauerkraut, but again, it is unknown where we live. I need to hit Velo Vol up for his recipe.

You are welcome to mine! Currently 4" of snow overnight, with Temps in the low 20's and a nicely freshening north wind. Eff this noise.

Similar. We are at 15°F, Wind NNW at 12 gusting to 21 mph. Time to clear the drive. We only got ~3”of snow so it’s a toss-up between shovel or blower. Hmmm…

That should be al it needs, but I don't have any cone wrenches at the house. I'll bring it in to the shop tomorrow and fix things up. The real question is what on earth caused it to loosen in the first place

I need to get another 953. Sure wish I woulda grabbed a couple more while they were still regularly $40 on eBay.
I got a pretty good deal on it on eBay at around $60, and it's in really good shape. Pretty crazy what some people on there were asking for them, even in really ratty condition.
