Maybe Michael Barry will win it all.

Yay for an improved forecast and real spring weather on the weekend!!!!
PS: Could someone post details for Friday's race??
My family stuff ended up ending early last night and I almost it to your show. But I was just so damn tired/today was going to be monday etc. I really want to see a show fo' realz so keep me in the know dude. ROCK AND ROLL
i have renters insurance with meloche monnex and i made the same inquiry when i signed up; it's my understanding that my bikes require no special schedules or riders and that they are covered for theft even when not on the premises. i forget what the deductible is, $300 i think.Originally Posted by iherald
have you seen her in the aristocrats? her thing about joe franklin and what he did to her made me laugh so hard because i was really uncomfortable...Originally Posted by Offhoff
That's exactly what they told me. The problem is I said "ok, put that in writing that my bikes are covered, full replacement value" "well we can't do that until you sign up..."Originally Posted by jeremywhitehorn
Exactly what I was thinking.. I laughed out loud but then stopped really suddenly again. I think she pushed the joke more than anyone else, personally. Everyone else just did the variations on the standard grossout (not that some of them weren't hilarious).Originally Posted by jeremywhitehorn
8 P.M. start behind the Cavern. It is scavenger hunt style so bring a bag and prolly a lock as well. The flyer says a helmet...not sure if that is mandatory though. Typically these will have a list of items to pick up along the way for points and a list of mandatory checkpoints as well.Originally Posted by Offhoff
*Insider tip....find a partner and do it as a team*
I have The Aristocrats on my I Pod i need to watch it again, i forget her variation.
scavenger hunt race? Sounds fun! Anybody wanna team up with me?
not if you're going to get into a fight with a cabbie...Originally Posted by Shiznaz
yeah yeah yeah... you'll be kicking yourself that you're not on my team when you find out one of the scavenger items is a bloody tooth.Originally Posted by 2wheelsgood
Instant podium — just add water
I've used them in the past... OK in an emergency I guess but I never use mine anymore. Get the road morph pump (the one I had with me for mountain biking)Originally Posted by somnambulant
I just don't like the CO2 'cause it's expensive and I don't like the waste when you're done.
Unless you're talking about CO2 systems for growing... in which case I have no comment.
Yeah, I don't plan on using it regularly. I already have a road pump. But I've been considering getting one to use while doing mtn bike races.Originally Posted by I_bRAD
Speaking of which
Cavernmech: I need to talk Paris-Ancaster with you. Wondering if you got room on the sag wagon for my ride (and/or myself) or whether I should borrow my buddy's rack to put on my car.
you guys should come down for april fools!
Ah, well racing is another scenario. My CO2 you press on the cartridge to inflate, on tam's version you have to twist a nozzle while you hold it. The press to inflate version is much easier and faster I've found.
I just checked mine and the brand is "Genuine Innovations" The cartridges cost a fortune though! (like $15 for 3!- but that's at duke's mind you)
Re: racks. Did you see this?
I can't stand trunk racks, so I'll continue to whine about how expensive roof racks are and not have anything.Originally Posted by I_bRAD
We rigged up a pretty good little system with a CO2 tank from a beer tap, a solenoid valve from active surplus, a lamp timer and some perforated surgical tubing. We set it so it would go off for 15 minute periods twice a day, controlling the total flow with the main tank valve. We made sure not to enter the room during or immediately after releasing the CO2 as we didn't want to suffocate (even though we weren't pumping that much out.. safety first!) When we ran out of C02 we just didn't bother getting a refill and just went with 2 litre bottles filled with sugar, yeast and water. Its a safer, cheaper setup, but can be messy and requires feeding and shaking every now and then. Also natural, but generates new CO2 compared to CO2 tanks which generally use recycled CO2...Originally Posted by I_bRAD
Yeah, roof racks are WAY better but they're also not 35bucks!
A thule/yakima combo with bars and two carriers will run you ~700. I sold my VW compatible yakima racks (bars only, no carriers) used for 150 for an idea on cost.
I think Mindy is gonna come in which case I will be stopping at the Registration/Finish to sign in then have her take me to the start. I can't stand the waits for the buses and trucks to take all to the start. I think Dave is coming with me...other than that I should have room for bikes and/or 1 person. If need be I can put the extra racks on the roof but I am planning on putting mine and Daves bikes inside the van. We will tawk.Originally Posted by somnambulant
I'm not working today. If you need anything deliverered you're SCREWED (by which I mean it won't be me delivering it)! mwahahaha.
