They've been sitting there for days, and more at another location. They were pulled out after the work began to tear down a dam. I'll check them more closely on the way home. But seriously, this stuff is slimy!

100% correct!

Rode this to work today--knocked 10 minutes off my 14 mile commute as compared to riding my Riv or Bob Jackson.

My homemade work stand since funds are tight...yes, that would be right after fixing my rear flat that I had today.

I meant to post these last week b4 the State Fair ended last Sunday.

I snapped a few pics from the fair other than that one of the fake pink pig in the yard
which I saw on the way to the fair but at the fair there was a real momma pig nursing her piglets.

The 60 year old Texas State Fair icon 'Big Tex' went out in a blaze of glory last Friday as an electrical short
of some sort caused a fire & he went up in flames.

I about drooled over that pie judging area and was tempted to ask for an application to
become a judge next year.

One of the pics is a guy dressed up like a tree or Ent for LOTR fans.

Didn't feel so guilty about the calories I consumed at the fair as I rode around 19 miles down &
another 19 back home on my bike.

I finally arrived at a front/rear rack solution for my Diego Garcia bike; now I just need to pick up a trunk pannier and I'll be all set

Thankfully I have a large shop with a high ceiling for storage - but, man, this thing didn't look that large when the kids were playing on it.
