One of the best t-shirts I've seen in a while was at Disney:

I have some random velcro straps laying around. Perhaps they will work. How long does it need to be?

Somewhere around 8-12 inches, and the width seems to be the important thing, I think they need to be close to 1.5" wide. When will I see you next?

I got the strap from... a Rocky Mount I think. Or an Avenir pump strap. Or Zefal. But a shop thing. Lemme ask someone that actually went out and bought one.

There's a white version for EZ-Up tents, meant to hold two 10'x10' tents together. I don't use that one though.

I can't find a thing online.

I think mine is a little north of there with pedals and cages. It's not going to hold me back at all for at least a few years, if even then.

Leg is still messed up. Anything over 200w or out of the saddle and my leg does this weird fandango of pain.

On the bright side my teeth are awesome according to my dentist. Is there some sport where biting is involved?

Happy hours were legislated out of existence in MA.
I'm kind of an Epcot guy myself. Some of the rides are decent, there aren't as many whiny kids (just whiny adults), you can get some surprisingly good food in the around the world tour, and then to wrap up the night you can hit the tequila bar in the faux Mexico world.

I hate "The Mouse" in all of his guises.

If I had to be in the greater Orlando area I would stay near Ferndale/Clermont and ride my bike.

I wouldn't say "hate" but perhaps an intense aversion to the mouse, its minions, cohorts, and corporate entity best describes my feelings towards it.

My boss had something similar he just got diagnosed. He was on a marathon kick and got a weird hamstring pain right before last years New York Marathon. He ran it but has only been able to run about 5 times since then, and each time he says it hurts.

Went and got an MRI last week. Diagnosis is a bulging disc and the treatment is a shot of something to reduce it so he says.

It depends how hard I'm pushing it, how long I've had to warm up, and how much moisture is in the air. The dry air doesn't bother me, but if I go too hard too early in wet, raw conditions my throat tightens up until I back off and warm up. Then everything is usually OK. I don't have asthma or any other respiratory problem.
