I've been a no show the last few times, but I will put it on my calendar. 6 weeks away and already close to 200 posts.
Looking for 25 or 26T Dura Ace uniglide cogs both cassette and FW. Can trade NOS 22 or 24T.
Me too. Maybe tomorrow, but I'm just back from my road trip to Nashville and back and have buckets of church stuff to catch up on. But guess what is expected Friday-Saturday? Rain changing to sleet and freezing rain. Maybe Sunday afternoon.
Top, our ground is still covered and in places the natural snow is still 2 feet deep. The pile at the end of the driveway is still 8 feet tall and about a 30X30 foot square.
Spring sprang here on Monday. I feel like dancing outside naked.
But my dooryard is about 6 inches deep in first-quality Maine mud, so hope is in sight.
I'm so psyched for this ride! I'm headed down to Chatham the week before as well, and will do a recon run up the OCRT, weather permitting, and get my new French fancy dialed in.
In fact, I'm getting my swap & trade box together, along with the 50cm Miyata 1000 and a very nice 52cm Shogun 500.
You know it's going to be a good day when the stem and seatpost come right out.
I'm still hoping to make it and bring along Pastor Bob's 144 BCD triplizer, which I borrowed as a pattern. Not sure what I'll ride--maybe my triplized TdF.
The snow is going fast here in Cabot. On Sunday the 31st, you could barely see the top bar of the lawn chair in our backyard, which faces south so the snow melts there first. Today it's melted almost down to the level of the seat. It's a great sight.
Really looking forward to meeting up with everyone, I'm bringing the Holdsworth that I got as a bare frame last fall. Going to put a box 'o parts together soon. That Shogun 500 and Univega bikes are my size, oh no! I need help. Pastor Bob, It would be great to see Sporty in person.
I need to abstain. I got a new job. Really happy about it, but it takes all my time.
I have spoken.
Thanks! Yeah, I've never packed one of those either. Weird.
Not sure if I have a bike that would go that far. I just took all my favorite ones apart and rearranged all the pieces. They look cool but there's a lot of bugs to work out.
I have spoken.
Rode in shorts today, first time this year. Hope the 26th is as nice.
FYI (the Y being for plural "You"), we may not ride the tandem for this run. I posted this in the MetroBoston regional forum but not here yet. A few days ago Sharon fell and broke her arm and thumb and is now in a cast. They weren't serious breaks and nothing hurts. The cast was optional but recommended. She sees a doc tomorrow for the start of rehab. In the meantime we are being, ah, shall we say, adaptable.
So today we are going to try the tandem, perhaps on the MM. If it works okay we'll both be there for the CCRT run. If not, I'll probably ride a solo bike.
Real cyclists use toe clips.
Dang, Jim. That's a shame. Hope Sharon heals up OK.
