  1. I was thinking that the closure one was photoshopped in. Yup... the pavers around the bollard aren't removed.
  2. Bikes and beer... a perfect pairing!
  3. Here's another idea: Buy him the shoes for Christmas and then you can match the cleats after. If it's a road bike, get road shoes. Fit is important, but he can always exchange them after he tries them on. This is a big advantage to using a Local Bike Shop (LBS) rather than the internet. They should also be happy to adjust the cleats which can make all the difference if there isn't enough float. Or take a picture and we'll tell you what cleats to by.
  4. OK... this wasn't so bad: 75 miles with my 15-year-old. The saddle sores *were* mostly healed from last weekend, but not as bad this time. My new saddle doesn't seem to be a good fit, as I've *never* had a problem with my old bike.
  5. Sunday was an official ass whoopin'... I've never suffered this much on a bike, but I'm proud that I didn't quit, even though I was within a mile of my house at the 70-mile mark. Next Sunday is a 75-mile ride with my son for cancer research. I'll make it!
  6. Thanks, everyone. I went with
  7. It's the lack of testosterone from sitting on their balls all the time. And some didn't have two balls... Juan Pelotta.
  8. Well that's a little rude. Writes an obviously small-minded person! My desk at work speaks volumes!
  9. Jens Voigt is freakin' awesome. My favorite quote: "Shut up legs! Do what I tell you to do." Followed up by a close second "If you go (with a break), you can either win or not win. If you don't go for it, you definitely won't win." and third "Having things organized is for small-minded people. Genius controls chaos." I can't wait to see what he does after retiring.
  10. Anyone have a lead on the cheapest PDHs available? I've found which has unlimited access for $125, or 30 hours (how many I need!) for $75. Anything nearly free?
  11. ^^ The real problem with this matrix? As many women got older, they get less hot and more crazy! Reminds me of the old adage: Men marry women hoping they won't ever change. Women marry men expecting they will change.
  12. Absolutely ... I give up on trying to embed video via HTML. But why?!? href="https://www.facebook...203286604979021" data-width="466">Post by June Starkey.
  13. ^ Well done. How many feet of "up"?
