Addiction LXXVIII

Notices
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

Nice ride.

Such a sensitive boy. These things come in phases and you'll likely grow out of it by the time you're my age. You can always try that anti-CGRP receptor antibody. It's supposed to be nothing short of miraculous.

Guess I'm a plastic bike kind of guy because I've not once cared about luglessness.

I'm not up on steels. Basically only know stainless, and that seems old.

it was kind of easy. they only countered once. We met the half way. We take possession the 26 of august. We’re doing the inspection on tuesday, he already had one done 2 weeks ago, so I don’t think we will have anything to worry about.

If you look at the data on this class it’s kinda underwhelming. Plus I am lucky enough that these things happen fairly rarely. The trigger is elusive, however. I hope it wasn’t the raspberries. They are too good to abandon.

I'd rather listen to your fluglehorn music than that drivel. Or her version of boogie woogie bugle boy...

Speaking of bugles, how has your playing been progressing?

I am usually in the top 5 if not top 3. I can’t compete with datlas who is more machine than man, or trainsnorter. Bah humbug is on another level too when he chooses to ride outside.

Ah, thanks for the correction. Not all migraine has a discernible trigger.

So you're serious but not elite?

I'm not serious, but I can average 20mph on the MUPs, so I am elite.

Over a century. There are hundreds of steel alloy variants. Not all are suitable for all purposes. Over in Japan there's work done on steel just to find better ones for knives, specifically. Those are separate from steels for tools, cars, bikes, and whatever else.

Well and my path is only through ~40mpd, which works until I have morning meetings and screw up which day it is. Those who churn out big mileage on single days are more impressive. At least, IMO.

Or those who deal with weather.
