    Maybe the hub will quiet down as it breaks in some more. Those look like flat handlebars, are they? You like them for long rides?

    That is one speedy fuel pump. What the heck is re-boring a head? Did you mean the block?

    My first ride in over a week, as I took last week off as vacation and thinned trees in my forest. My legs didn't atrophy that I could tell. Maybe dragging hundred pound plus logs is almost as good...

    I rode to the bus yard. I saw a snail on the sidewalk as I was walking to work from the bus stop. I wonder if snails are becoming more common. All I used to see when I was a kid were slugs.

    I made a shim for my Rocky Mountain to accept the slightly smaller Specialized version of Bullmoose bars. Just some sheet metal I found in my shop.
