    I also never suggested that one turn off the news completely. I personally think watching news constantly is too much. I just get my dose of news once a day and leave it at that.

    I know you are an ex-Marine. If it makes you feel any better Mr. H was a Navy pilot. He would be happy to drop on bomb on your head if necessary and I have no problem with that. He has told me (rather wistfully) if that he hadn't been a pilot, he would have liked to have been a sniper. So he would also be happy to shoot you in the head if necessary and I have no problem with that either. Sure there's a place for the strategic use of violence and intimidation, but I was just talking about interacting on a personal level between two individuals on an Internet forum.

    Sorry to have pushed your buttons, I really mean that. It was completely unintentional.

    Actually you didn't push any of my buttons at all and no apology is nessacary. I find the majority of your posts very insightful including the one I responded to. We are just having a reasonable, civilized conversation. I think personal interaction between individuals on a forum, once you cut through the smoke and mirrors, is very much the same as it would be face to face. Relations between countries are nothing more than a group of PEOPLE from each side voicing there opinions and once there level of disagreement meets an impasse they assign the job of killing each other to their young sons and now daughters. That is the nature of man and that is a fact. A VERY sad fact. I feel like a forum such as this provides some relief from the everyday grind and some good natured ribbing never hurt anyone........

    What is the Puch? Almost read it as the Punch, was imagining it was called that because riding the mountain with headwind feels like someone is constanty punching you in the face and legs.

    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)

    I love 12-25 but gearing is highly personal based on your riding style.

    Yeah, if I'm on the 27, it would only because I'm feeling lazy. So maybe 12-25 will force me to not be lazy, I'm not exactly riding very far. I think I should go with that since I already have the 11-28 and if I don't like 12-25 I can just make the 11-28 into a 12-28.

    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.

    +1, I as much as many likely benefited when the draft going away, but if there was one in place that put sons and daughters from all in the mix I think it would make the hawkish less so... that said, drones don't have parents.

    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.

    I am certain that I am not the only one with a magic bike. In fact, I know @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.

    Don't get me wrong, I am thrilled I stayed upright, because hitting the ground at speed would have been bad. But as I seesawed back and forth to regain control, I had enough time to think about how bad it was going to be when I hit the ground, or a car hit me. I honestly love how instinct just takes over in those situations, and thousands of miles of cycling trains those instincts. I didn't try to brake at all, just threw everything into riding through it, correcting the steering, over correcting, throwing it back the other way, and repeating the process until I was rolling along straight again.

    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.
