    I have fewer fork issues, but that's because I've used the Reynolds Ouzo Pro for a long time. That's the old Thomson of forks.

    It took a few months of ebay scouring to find a NIB back up Ouzo Pro in a 43mm rake. Obscure items.

    I did say that the last time.
    I couldnt bring myself to cut either of my Thompsons. I fail at weight weenie ism.

    So, no Ritchey forks?

    I need to learn about these new-fangled carbon forks.

    Ritchey fork will be fine. Is this for the Habanero?

    Rollers and the road bike are going to be like going from riding inside to riding outside after this week of TT bike on the trainer.

    I read that earlier. Seems that one was pretty much a slam dunk, as far as the conviction went. I believe the only answer to that question should be provided by the victim.

    Confirm the rake and check ebay periodically for a new Ouzo Pro. They're out there. It was hands down the best fork on the market until Reynolds left forks. It'll be one of the few things that lasts as long as your ti bike.

    Ohio has 139 people on death row. It strikes me as unfair that this dude got to be the guinea pig for this new drug concoction because Ohio ran out of pentobarbital and the Europeans won't sell to us because they think we're crazy.

    Death penalty discussion is a tough one for me. Absolute slam dunks, the eye for an eye comes out in me. The ones that have even the slightest question make it tougher. The victim, nor her child, got to choose the cocktail that was more humane.

    If you do find one, it should look like this. Don't buy one of the older ones and don't buy a UL.
