    I have some crud racers. I don't have them mounted right now (might stick them on the Flite), but they did not rattle on this.

    I've heard tell but gonna try this.

    My KHS is 71 cm stem + TT. This setup is 69 cm. My KHS has a very XC setup tho. If I can find my 100mm stem I'll definitely try that too, for a 66 cm combo.

    We are headed to Home Depot for date night. (Too bad they no longer have the people out front selling hot dogs.) I need more sandpaper so I can continue getting the Haro frame back to its roots.

    Also, in case anyone cares, I rode the Trek about 2 miles in a meandering sort of way that included stops for an organic chai latte and the library where I got a DVD of the Hercule Poirot film "After the Funeral". Bike lanes continue to be unpredictable- come on. finish the whole block- and impatient people in large trucks suck.

    Before I loved Lewis Black I loved Denis Leary. "Lock & Load" was no "No Cure for Cancer" but this rant was worth the price of the cassette it came on because coffee. I still smile when I think of the line "You're not in the Wu Tang Clan. You're not even in A Tribe Called Quest, a**hole." Definitely NSFW.

He'd never done laundry or cleaned the house before, and wasn't much of a cook. It was in a tiny way a positive thing... but ****, I do not want to linger and fade that way. No ****ing way.

    I hope your wife is clear sb. Fingers crossed and all that.

    I'm still not sure if it's better to know or not, but I'm leaning towards it's better to know. Is the test definitive? (To a point, I'm sure nothing is 100% but I'm hesitating on getting the genetic test for ovarian cancer because that one is still so iffy anyway.)
    My mom is a 6 year breast cancer survivor and my sister is at 11 years. About 5 years ago, my sister was tested for the BRCA gene. If she turned out to be positive, they wanted me to be tested as well. I told them it didn't matter to me what her results were because I wouldn't be interested in having it for another few years. My reasoning was that since I had/have never had an abnormal mammogram I was at very low risk of having it. But an even bigger reason was that if my results were positive they would still not have tested my daughter or done anything proactive on her behalf until she turned 18. She was 15 at the time and I didn't want that hanging over her head for three years. Luckily for everyone concerned, my sister proved to be negative for the gene and her developing breast cancer at 38 really was just an unfortunate fluke.

    I prefer coffee-flavored coffee and beer-flavored beer too.

    That movie is actually better in German. I saw it outdoors at Rock am Rhein in 1987. Nearly everyone was drunk out of their mind and they roared at nothing louder than they did at the appearance of Mr. Henry Gibson, the original Flower Child.

    Looks like the November deal went to hell in a handbasket. A shame.

    The factory completely changed the bike from what the prototype was, and they weren't confident that they would get what they ordered.
