    ...I'm very impressed that you could do those on a bicycle. The uphill climb must've been epic.

    I think the dream revealed my vulnerability on the subject. It amazes that I still have the very same dream now as 40 years ago in college.

I'll never have the independent means to allow me to devote sufficient time to even distantly approach her achievements. And I applaud her for going about her business without worrying about the gossip regarding her involvement in a so-called Boston marriage. I believe she may have been in Seneca Falls a time or two.

    And *I* have never spent $50 to buy something to support my boobs. For that kind of money, I ought to be able to pay someone to hold them up for me.
    I'll volunteer and save you 50 bucks.

    So legs feel good, and I'm heading for the gorge (right after my Quality Inn "hot" breakfast). I rearranged gear and moved two heavy items from my hydration pack to the frame bag. Should cut down on wear and tear.

    That scene definitely looks european, aided greatly by that license plate.

    Sorry darling, didn't notice car since I was awestruck by the stairs. I'll keep an eye out and see if I see another today. The silver one behind it is a Citroen, obviously.

    Can anyone recommend an affordable decent quality torque wrench? I've ordered new disc brakes (bb5 ----> bb7) and I want to install them properly.

    Not judging, just saying.

    I knew this.

    Honestly, when I was just sitting there waiting to be "taken home", watching everyone else enjoying the day, I felt like I had glimpsed into the future and saw my life in a nursing home.

    It was a depressing vision.

    I've never used anything but the Park, but it's served me fine. They have two versions - one for less torquey bits and one for more torquey bits. That I'm aware of, the smaller one covers the torque range for most things on the bike, other than the crankset, but you may want to double-check.

    There are alternatives, like cycling down a hill at 50 mph into the grill of a semi.
    I realized after my collision and attack by the pitbull and he subsequent headoverheels fall and concussion, that there is no pain in a violent end. It just stops. Life that is.

    Park Tools, Craftsman both make a decent one. Remember to unscrew the torque setting to zero when done.

    That is honestly one of the more depressing posts I have read in a long while. I hope things turn positive for you, Dudelsack.

    This actually brings up a personal subject I would very much like to hear the opinions of fellow addicts incorporated.
    As you all know I am 60 and had my right hip replaced 5 years ago. My orthopod says my left hip is shot and needs replaced. The pain has been quite severe , at times causing my leg to give out at times almost causing a fall. I have been riding and like many of you, have difficulty making any ride an easy ride. The odd thing is that I'm pain free 2o minutes into the ride but later suffer from the effort. The doc says any time I want it done is good, that I pass muster, and until I get it done, ride as far and hard as I choose to. He also advised to put it off until I really need it due to my relative youth, likely longevity and future need for replacements.
    This past week I have done no riding due to work and found my legs actually feeling much better with little to no pain.
    Thus the question- get it done now so I can get back to riding or give up riding for a couple of years until symptoms require it in the future.
    What would YOU do?
