    OOS Believe Me and Follow Me!

    And that is exactly why I’m out! Not you, the carnage. Each visit to that place has costed me at list $300...if I ever crack the El Mariachi chain stays it will be at Wildcat!

    LOL at use of the word solid to refer in positive terms to a soup, not sure why but I appreciate this little gems but I do!

    I would not ignore the possible presence of an alien spaceship nor the tipping finger of the fabled Sasquatch...you know, kind of like when your golf game sucks...

    Shepherd Lake Rd

    I’m guessing someone skipped ‘Italian’ while going through the identity triggers catalog! LOL Funny thing, when I OTBed yesterday I cursed in English, and I’ve (almost) never cursed in Italian!

    does shutting down a domestic pipeline with an Executive Order may have anything to do with lowering supply (at least in terms of projections) as much as having to buy overseas? Policy does have effect on economics as much as the other way around, even more so recently.

    Things that make you frown :(

    Realizing the play in the SS El Mariachi cranks is due to the the left arm being cracked at the junction with the spindle. I just realized maybe using bonded carbon/aluminum cranks on the bike that sees that highest torque at the crank is possibly not the best idea. At least until I keep using...

    The July 31/31 Classic p/b Halter's, JORBA, & MTBNJ

    15 / 20+ first OTB in a long time, no damage to me and more importantly to the bike! I guess i relaxed a little too much on a flat, straight fire road after much excite on the gnar! Broght all pieces back home that’s what’s important. Nothing fancy about the ride otherwise, just punching my...

    Shepherd Lake Rd

    I haven’t seen anybody and I was told that the occasional cyclist is tolerated. On the other hand, I tried the old Cranberry rd leading to Sterling Mine rd and ended up in the middle of what looks like a very posh residential property, with real mansions, boat houses in the mage snd guarded...

    Sometime I really thing not having any kid was a blessing for me and Donna, with parents like us I can’t even imagine the damage a kid could do!

    Your dingo and your kid? It's not a seat on unit so I'm assuming nobody got hurt, not even the dingo...that's the reason, the only reason in fact, that I didn't buy a multimillion mansion, too many risks involved in doing maintenance! 🤣

    You should try with a regular floor pump first, you maybe surprised. I seated all my tires using a regular floor pump, including massive 2.6", 2.8" and 3" , so it may work for you. I do use peasant alloy rims all around though, a gold plated inflator maybe needed if your rims are carbon... 😁

    Having the resources to do it (storage, tools and most importantly time) maybe worth buying the totaled car from the insurance to sell specific parts (not sure if that is also true with a Carrera though) ? Obviously minus the one that were crashed by the impact/tow guy.

    Ouch. The recovery operation probably did more damage than the actual sinkage! From the look of it it must have gained some momentum coming down the driveway, enough to cross the road and crash the beam that is. Luckily it didn't crash on passing traffic!

    14 / 20+ I should know better than make plans, what was I thinking?!?! Math seems against me making 20+ rides this month but I’ll be damn if I’m not trying! Got caught by the guard of a really posh lake community that I shall call Wayward Pines, I apparently trespassed yesterday in my attempt...
