    When your 20 yr. old daughter with Down syndrome decides that a daddy daughter indoor triathlon would be cool, you run. I pulled a hamstring on the treadmill getting ready, and aggravated it in the...

    Harsh and hopefully tongue in cheek. Most of us here ride for fun. Worrying sucks the fun out. It's only natural to be a little skittish after a fall.

    Here in Colorado, I ride/commute with friends on occasion, with my wife some, and do a fair number of organized rides. I wouldn't call any of it group riding as such.

    I left work last night at 5 or so, looking forward to my commute home. The fates had aligned to make my past three rides down wind. With a storm moving in, I was hoping for four in a row.

    I run about 50-50, but set the back up with less tolerance so it fires first. Under load, the front dominates, which I find preferable for fast descents. In 42 years of one handed riding, and more...

    In truth, I loan it out to my boys from time to time, and the guys at the shop ride it when they're working on it. Also, it's...

    No changes on the master to my knowledge, and I believe they use the same master for their discs. It works fine for my rim brake set up. I don't know if the discs require more.

    Thanks, and a good call on that. I'm convinced the only reason this, and prior goals have been reached, is she picks em. I'm just there to keep her company.
