    In one blizzard (I thought it was 1995, not 1996, but it might have been 1996, it snowed something like 3 feet over two days) I was supposed to get together with this woman I met, our first date if...

    +1

    As a race promoter I sometimes see some disappointed new racers, angry at themselves for not doing better, etc. I like to point out that no matter what happened that they're now a racer and...

    I save all my old kits for the trainer. I have some pretty good get ups for trainer use only. Sometimes I'm wearing bib knickers, SS jersey, LS jersey, jacket, etc.

    I give away stuff every now and...

    I looked at the Emonda pages. Looks like they are not compatible with standard center bolt type brakes (side pull / dual pivot / etc).

    Right now it's a smaller number of frames but I think that...

    To expand a bit, until dual pivot side pull brakes were popular there was no reason to have direct mount brakes - the bolt going through both arms also held the brake on. There were two aluminum arms...

    Right, or in the back either the chainstays or the seat stays act in a similar manner.

    The idea was to remove the bars across the back of the brake. The best comparison I can think of is center pull brakes vs roller cam brakes.

    The extra parts I believe are for extra clearance so...

    Our club got rid of sponsors, except one (on the shorts only). This way the kit doesn't change from year to year. It's a nice thing to do if the club can do it.

    They did add a sponsor to the...

    Holy crap.

    I just checked myfitnesspal. 79kg to about 73 kg. Since Nov 17 I've gone over 140g protein seven times. I've logged my food every day since that date. Realistically the only times I went over is when...

    It's funny, I threatened to watch Boondock Saints but realized that watching movies makes time crawl if I'm psyched to ride.

    I try to focus on the riding. Last night I mainly listened to music and...

    3 hours trainer, no particular workout except to ride harder when I felt like it. Decided not to do 4 hours.

    I'm a long time roadie. I never did cross, having watched a race back in the day. I did race mtb a bit but with the proliferation of ticks and poison ivy I don't ride trails anymore.

    However… I...

    Oh, okay. Camera is a Sony CX-760. I'm actually not sure if any outputs are live feed outputs. It has a small HDMI out, a USB out (weird round shape), and a regular USB out (which is what I use, it...

    We replaced our furnace and hot water heater (both oil) I think a couple weeks after moving in. $8k off the bat, and this is in a condo association house, so no exterior maintenance (roof, paint,...

    I should point out that the weight factor comes into play, for me, only in a group ride/race situation. On solo rides my 3 lbs heavier aero wheels are consistently faster than my non-aero wheels...

    I'm currently using them in 1080p@60fps which is apparently BluRay (vs the "fake" 1080@60fps which is what the Contour/etc has). I can't view on my mac using native viewers, I had to download VLC.

    I'd side with you. There's got to be an eBay thing on shipping costs if it's listed in the ad. To charge more isn't right.
