    Our bodies are self cleaning. That is what you liver and kidneys do. What do people think a juice cleanse would do anyway? Toxins don't build in the system to be flushed out with some juice. And...

    Oddly, I don't mind the kids with the noisy speakers rattling my car windows as they go by (though they will be the deaf old men of tomorrow). I don't mind speakers on bikes, it was kind of nice on...

    Tom is gone and gone too soon. There is no more Tom but in our memories. For a moment we can keep him alive. When I open the refrigerator door and close it again, taking nothing. When we...

    The lever pulls the cable through the housing just fine. The brakes don't seem to operate well when squeezed. I'll look again tomorrow. Maybe I'll try swapping the front and rear since I might...

    Yeah, I put one of those derailleurs with spacers on my husbands LHT. No spacers at the co-op so I thought I would give what they had a try.

    Big ring has 42, small has 24. So, what do you think the odds of a bottom pull derailleur working? I can go to the coop and try some used ones out, so I don't have to order without trying.
