    Scott, if it's no trouble and you can bring it along, that would be great. It will just take a few seconds to see if the prototype ring will drop on around the ledges.

    Thanks, Top, that would be great. I'm guessing it will fit, but it would be nice to know.

    Hi Bob,
    That's right, I forgot that you'd gotten those cranks from Kurt--I owe him, too.

    Yes, I'm sure you're right, strategically enlarging the "ledge arc" cutouts should do the trick, but I'm...

    I'm still expecting to make it to the ride. I have a request to make of anyone else who might be coming: as Pastor Bob, Top, and a few others may know, I've been working for a while on a 144 bcd...

    Looking on the bright side, that also means you're twelve years younger than people who are that much older than you.

    That's got to count for something.

    A friend of mine who lives in the upper Connecticut River Valley, where that's also a common problem, told me that he always starts his rides by going with the wind. That way he's sure of having a...

    My friend Dave and I rode the Quabbin-Waban on Saturday, stayed with old friends (I had not see them in 33 years) on Saturday, then did the Waban-Quabbin back to our cars on Sunday. Given where we...

    This may not be the absolute best way, but what I do is stand up briskly, without unseemly scrambling, and position myself so that any bleeding areas are out of sight of any onlookers. I say nothing...

    I do that once a year or so, usually because I've misjudged the slope of the ground.

    On quite a few other occasions, I've been doing slow 360-degree circles in the middle of a deserted...

    Well, the guy had[U] filed a police report when the bike was stolen, yes? And that's why he was able to get the bike back? Are you saying he would have had to file [U]another report after the bike...

    I believe that the decision to press charges or not is made by the judicial system, not by the victim. Someone correct me if that's not the case.

    How does a fork get a reverse bend like that? It's like the previous owner was involved in a front-end collision while traveling in reverse.

    You're right, Bob--since I never go anywhere I probably won't bother to record my serial numbers. There's not a lot of bike theft in a town of 1,200 people--not because they're more virtuous than...

    Bike theft and recovery in DC

    Interesting Washington Post piece about recovery of a stolen bike. I should write down my serial numbers.

    I'm still hoping to make it and bring along Pastor Bob's 144 BCD triplizer, which I borrowed as a pattern. Not sure what I'll ride--maybe my triplized TdF.

    Any guesses as to why Auchen's Continental Glue (see response no. 2, above) took weeks or months to set up? Maybe he got a bad/old tube of product?

    "Hoard" is correct in this case. Confusing, though, since it's a word with a number of homophones--words that sound the same but are spelled differently and have different meanings. Horde, hoard,...

    I love the way Michael Sweatman describes certain Suntour derailleurs (XC, AG, etc.) as "rock crushers."

    Funerals don't bother me nearly as much, for some reason--probably the absence of societal pressure to smile and pretend you're having a good time.
