White Oak

Grass:
Bermuda
Kentucky Blue

Pet/animal/bug:
Cat: Nope
Dog: Nope
Cockroach: Yes(wtf)

Sad to see Devin Hester go. But as you age, you get slower. Ask Brian Urlacher.

Just remember to not gnaw on the trees and you'll be all set.

Cottonwood and several other trees, most grasses, cats, dogs, and mold. So that covers most of the year outside and inside. Oh, and anaphylaxis level allergic to aspirin and any NSAID other than Tylenol. That means no ibuprofen or Excedrin but it also means no Pepto Bismal and no Kaopectate either. Whee!

Dannihilator 03-05-14 11:57 PM

I can't be on aspirin or nsaids, blood thinners.

LAJ 03-06-14 08:25 AM

Indeed.

LAJ 03-06-14 08:26 AM

Thanks Billy. I keep liking it more and more. Looks like I get to stretch its legs on Sunday, as we'll be up in the 60's finally.

so have you jazzed it up with some colour yet?

for my own bike, I'm thinking of getting that cheapo cotton handle bar ribbon in red and wrapping it over my yellow tape. This way I can get the bars in co-ordination with my red tyres that just won't wear out.

Sweet Cervelo sbxx, it's hot. Posting a pic here for those that don't get out much...

coasting 03-06-14 08:37 AM

i like the look of that cervelo. very nicely styled. but more colour please.


for an example of a well decorated bike, check out herbie's guru. near enough to perfection. mine is a bit too flamboyant which won't work for most sensible people.

rjones28 03-06-14 08:45 AM

I do not have any allergies that I know about.

coasting 03-06-14 08:50 AM

i've always been allergic something or other. sucks. i'm just a sensitive soul.

LAJ 03-06-14 09:11 AM

I'm allergic to coloUr.

Color is nice, but it's too easy to end up with something that clashes with your kit. Eventually I am going to get moved to Texas for my job and will likely join a new team down there. The blue Guru may end up clashing, the black one will be fine.

I am a velofashionista.

How is this road cycling related any more than the watch, or car, or hiking threads?

Then it works here.

It is posted by owners of road bikes? Where is the addiction thread about roadies with herding dogs?

Back in the day this issue came up related to this thread, and the RTT in the racing forum. The request was made by several folks, myself included, for us to have a place where members of a given forum could post random things with the people they primarily interacted with. The request was, somewhat begrudgingly, allowed. That said, our ability to maintain threads like addiction or the RTT is an exception to the rule. If one wants to post about hiking here, have at it. But the alternate is that we lose threads like this, which provide an outlet that was requested and could certainly hold all the posts that are lost in a watch or car thread.
