    "Never do anything that you wouldn't want to have to explain to the paramedics."

    "His first words were 'did you bike today?' I hesitated before admitting that I had, thinking I was going to get a lecture on how bad the roads were and how I shouldn't try to bike home. Instead he said 'man, you're lucky! I've been sitting in traffic for over 1/2 hr, and I've only gone about 2 miles. Some guy on a bike passed me about 20 minutes ago and I'm sure he's home by now'."

    I looked out the window this morning and it was POURING. So I eat my breakfast, put on the most heavy duty raingear I have, head out the door and the rain stops as soon as I clip in to my pedals. I ended up getting pretty wet just from overheating!

    it's not too far from the truth; there is a group that rides out first every year in a double paceline, riding all the way there and back with maybe one stop and finishes in 10 hours. not my style.

    You must have left just after me then because it stopped raining just as I was rolling into the office.

    I'm meeting Jeremy at Ideal at noonish and then going to the university for most of the afternoon. I can check email from there. Thursday I can meet at noon or after, say, 4:30 somewhere - again I'm at the university.

    How do 'dings' affect a bike structurally? I just saw this ad on CL, and while I'm not interested in it, it made me think about what type of frame damage is ok and when you need to run away.

    The main factors in structural integrity are what material the bike is made of....where the ding is and how deep/big it is. On steel bikes its less likely to be a factor than on alu. If the bike has butted tubes and the dent/ding is in the middle of the tube...where the wall thickness is thinner.. it could be a problem. Dents/dings on the sides of tubes are better than dents/dings on the top or underside of tubes. Bad dings can misalign the frame and it might not ride straight no-hands. I am riding a badly dented IRO frame with no worries. That one doesn't look too bad.

    My little guy grabbed a lawn weed remover & was playing with it, helping us in the yard (not) I hear a clank sound & i keep hearing it. He’s hitting the top tube of my MTB with it. It now has about 5 to 6 slight indentations on the top tube. You can see it if you look hard but you can feel it sliding your fingers over it. Thank crap it wasn’t to bad. No folding tube yet.

    Take precautions when you have kids around your bike with garden tools.

    Nice bike brad.

    So those directions are for Maple to Jackson's Point and back? That's not too bad, I was thinking that it was one way and started thinking "hmmm, how do I get home"
