I really like Quinoa, but it looks like a bunch of tiny condoms:

in the 1980s cartoon mysterious cities of gold did they ever find the city of gold?

I got a busted Bianchi-Deda sprint bar for free. It's slightly bent and I am thinking of using it for a flop'n'chop. Do I do??

That place is hidden under a rainforest.

Never done one. Not my thing.

It will probably suck. The curve will be way off.

Dear Carleton,

I've been getting indigestion a lot lately, which never happened to me before. I haven't made any significant diet changes. I mostly, and most painfully, get it after eating things that are starchy/grainy. Any idea what could be causing this?

evilcryalotmore 06-18-11 04:11 PM

dear C note,

What do you eat on race wars day.

Hey Carleton. Do you keep your pant legs rolled up when you get off your bike?
Do you wear a cyclists cap at all times?
What do you think of the Nashbar Nekkid as a first budget "Track frame"? Or should I stick to steel.
Currently have a Reynolds 531 conversion, and ride 10+ miles a day

For a long-legged-short-torso person like myself, I think the Nashbar road frames are awesome.

You mean Track? Yes I have similar Geo as well

Squirrelli 06-18-11 11:36 PM

Their road and track frames have the identical geometry, except there are track ends on the Nekkid version.

How tall are you and what is your cycling inseam?

fixedgear80 06-19-11 12:04 AM

5'7.5" 32" inseam I ride a 53.5x53.5cm road frame. My legs a bit cramped and im currently looking for a 40-60mm stem. LOL

Dear carleton,

Does this thread impact your daily life?

bigboi146 06-19-11 12:39 AM

Dear Carlton what would you do if you caught a bike thief that stole your bike.

sounds like it could be celiacs or a wheat allergy or something completely different, if it's celiacs the only cure is avoiding gluten or smoking tree, if it's a wheat allergy you can either avoid wheat or maybe get shots, also i'm not a doctor but i have a gluten sensitivity, it sucks, try avoiding gluteny things and see how it effects you, on a bad night i'll absent mindedly have a beer and be in pain for hours

Scrodzilla 06-19-11 07:49 AM

This isn't the "Dear soyboy" thread. For that to happen, you'll need to beat Carleton in a no-gloves boxing match and outscore him in a series of math quizzes.

carleton 06-19-11 08:08 AM

Actually, can we close this thread? I don't have time to keep up. Been riding a lot.

rustybrown 06-19-11 11:06 AM

Dear soyboy...

dear soyboy, what kind of bike do you ride?

soyboy 06-19-11 12:20 PM

sorry scrod, didn't mean to derail your fun, just trying to help another glutard out, i don't want my own thread, i can't imagine i'd be any good at boxing, i'm pretty good at math but i imagine carleton is as well so i don't think i could win over all.

schwinn madison with DA hubs laced to black veeps and VO montemart cruiser bars and stem, it gets the job done and locking anything nicer in nyc would make me nervous. also i agree with carleton we should all be out riding our bikes, it's beautiful outside today, i just got home from a ride to a text from my lady saying she was clipped by a town car, she's fine but everyone be careful out there. i'm headed back out now.
