Rode the puch today.
except HUMMER....Keep being you H
Nashbar is having a 20% off sale on Continental if you guys are interested.
Going to order a cassette now. Like to see what the XXX fans think. I have 11-28, and I don't use the 11 or the 28. 12-25 or the 12-27? What do you guys think? It's 10 speed. I'm mostly in the middle cogs, I think having the 12-25 might improve my self-esteem on the bike so I don't look as much of wuss since I'm rarely on the bottom 3 If I'm the 15 for 12-27, then I'm 4 cogs up.
Maybe the 12-27 wouldn't be so bad since it has the 16 I want and 27 just in case I wuss out on the occasional steeper hills.
12-25 Tooth (12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 19, 21, 23, 25)
12-27 Tooth (12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 19, 21, 24, 27)

If I like the 12-25 I'll either give it to some chump on 41 for free, they pay for shipping or I'll just donate it to a local family shop for someone who can't afford a new cassette, it's still looks like it has few thousand miles left.
PlanetCyclery on Ebay, $43 with shipping, ordered few things from them before, should be here by Friday/Saturday.

Apparently, I tweaked both of my ankles in Monday's Clipless Near Death Escapade. So they hurt.
And apparently everyone is having the same issue I am with water bottle crashes, based upon the number of new threads showing injuries. I was either lucky, or have mad skills. I could have listed magic as the third option, but Missus H has the market cornered on that.
LAJ has one too. And now possibly Roll, only you can know. In your case it would be a magic rain bike. As I understand it, those are very rare.
Tweaked ankles I guess are better than a broken collar bone. But still, too bad about the sore ankles.
...last big crash at speed for me was losing a pedal when I hit a pothole.
I went down quicker than it takes to tell it, and ended up in the UCDavis ER,
with a bunch of people asking me if I knew how I got there.
Not my best memory of a bicycle adventure, that's fer sure.
I also find it humorous that in building up the rain bike, I went from a 43mm rake to a 50mm rake, to sharpen the steering. I have no clue if that helped or hurt in this instance.
I'm off the bike until I can get my Synvisc shots. Oh well. Right knee in relative vapor lock. After I get the shots it's a couple of weeks to recover, a week on pain meds after I get the initial reaction to the shots which is rather nasty, etc.
Getting old does suck.
Oh look what I found while doing some spring cleaning today. Now I have a whole gig of extra storage available. OH BOY!!
Don't be jealous.
