    I had to put PLATFORM pedals on my road bike

    So that my youngest could borrow my "backup bike"



    I'm a bit taller so far, so we'll need to find a shorter stem. He was complaining about his wrists hurting.

    I feel your pain. I put some platforms on my roadie when I lent my bike to a friend for the 5BBT.


    But then I changed 'em back to clipless.

    Too bad it doesn't fit. I'm swapping the parts over to another frame.

    There are two toy stores. One sells "upper end" toys (i.e. this is not a toys-r-us) and the other sells antique toys on consignment.

    "Real wars of words are harder to win. They require thought, insight, precision, articulation, knowledge, and experience. They require the humility to admit when you are wrong. They recognize that the dialectic is not about making us look at you, but about us all looking together for the truth."

    Isn't that in the LD school district? At any rate, you're upwind, and therefore don't get to breathe the Derry air.
