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

My friend has this pulsation problem with his Dura Ace front wheels (rim brake). 2 different wheels from 2 bikes. It's so bad on one of them that it feels unsafe. He found out that another friend had the same problem some time ago and Shimano wouldn't warranty it.
He also found this old video where the guy says he eventually got a refund. Anyone ever heard of this and if there is anything that can be done?

My Dad still mowed is own acre and 3/4 into his 90s, planted his own large garden, hand weeded it, all summer. planted and tended trees, etc. Every Saturday he worked in the yard "from Can till Can't".

I discovered I'm not my Dad.

SO, the answer to the question, was it "Vaccine ONLY lasts 6 months" or "Vaccine lasts at least 6 months" is "At Least".

And for those looking for a bit of context like I was, influenza vaccines are thought to be effective for at least 6 months as well.

amen to that. I’m blessed. She has put up with a lot over the years, and she handles my job like a trooper.

I’ve had many co workers have to leave this career because of unhappy situations at home.

And, just like that, this place devolved into a marketplace for man shopping.

My rate is $.50 per hour. Take that how you want.

We lived in separate cities the first year we were married so extended time away have never been a problem for us. It’s pretty likely she will start traveling again soon, so I expect her to be gone 3-4 nights per week. But, the reward for that is pretty high.

I wish these articles would explain the reasoning behind the conclusion. The way it's written suggests that you might have to redo every six months.
I just finished an article moments ago. Six monts is the data they have. They are hoping for a year.
