    I drug a pedal on a tight concrete corner and went down right in front of a restaurant. I took a few seconds to gather myself then got up. I was a bit bruised and had some pretty good road rash. A...

    14 F for me on January 23 of this year on an after-work night ride. We get some ice and snow but not enough for me to justify studded tires. As long as the roads are dry, I'll give it a shot.

    I smoked for 30 years or so. Quit around 7 years ago. I believe my lung function has improved from what it was. I still huff and puff on the hills in northwest Arkansas, but I make it to the top. ...

    I changed the granny ring on my triple from a 30 to a 28. That was a good move. For a long time, I ran a 12-28 cassette. Recently, I changed the cassette to a 12-30. That was a good move as well.

    Yes, that's the mount.

    You have to cinch it down fairly tight with the velcro so that the light doesn't move around when you roll over holes, concrete joints, rocks etc.

    Once I get it cinched...

    I would add the Weather Channel to that list after NBC took them over. They lost their focus.

    I've been antenna only for at least a couple of years. I don't watch that much TV anyway.
