Don't let Dan's retort get to you, Sir Stretch...

We all know kids should start out on Walmart bikes.

P.S. I can't wait til Wednesday when my new indoor colorblind glasses come in so I can tell if that is orange or green.

Does this mean that you have become a MAMIL, to join in, Stretch?

" Buying an expensive road bicycle has been described as a more healthy response to a midlife crisis than buying an expensive sports car "

This being Head-Case ....

We can help with buying the road bike. You should buy Chris' since he doesn't ride anymore; it's rather nice.

First ride of the year.

Shows 39.7 miles from the watch, but it died right at the end. It's showing a little under 1000 ft of climbing, but my Edge 200 is showing a little over 2000. in 40.00 miles exactly (yeah, we planned that,) but we did have 3 hours on the road.

We also got lost and rode around trying to find our way home for a while. Eventually called and got help, but man, that was a good day in the saddle, even if it was a bit tough on us.

It never crossed their mind to find out where the battery was, disconnect it, get the bike off and then reconnect the battery? They must (ought to) have a spanner or multitool  in their toolkit?

Last year an idiot farmer terminated the end of the fence onto a steel kissing gate on a right of way. That was quite exciting getting though!

Finally found a use for the Cervelo and the gaming system.

Need some setup as it is way off on the power meter and my Vectors seem to be dead.

I know why I'm getting older and older, but I don't know why I'm fatter and fatter. I'm already 250 lb, and my height is 1.67m.

I want to buy a bicycle, do I need a big one? How big do I need? Should I wear something to protect my head? It's bold, and smooth, I think it helps the air flowing during high speed. But I doubt I could make the bike running at that kinds of speed.

Bike shopping with Xavier today. He fits a medium Kona. I'm getting old.

More than we want to spend since he isn't a huge mountain biker, but it's high on the list. If you think the bike looks cool, you'll ride it, right?
