Pop's was on the J particle team..... 2000 came around with all of its doomsday talk, and he was gleefully working late trying to create a black hole. The official story is "that the phenomenon is analogous to a black hole" but I've always been of the opinion that there is no objective position to observe such events, so who knows?

Eek, bombarding a polychlorinated biphenyl with neutrons sounds scary! Then we might get radioactive polychlorinated biphenyls!!

Actually, just did some research. Apparently gamma irradiation is a viable means to break them down.

And yes, I certainly think of molecular folding (of proteins and of RNA in particular) as art!

I have a few customs from small American frame/bike builders - Co-Mo, Calfee, Tallerico.
I have tried to support our domestic cycling artists.


In other aspects of life.
Disney provides enough inspiration.

Look for the bare necessities, those simple bare necessities. Forget about your e-bike with disc brakes, yeah man.


edit: with a Like from @pastorbobnlnh - time for confessional - i DO lust for the bare necessity of a custom Ti from DeSalvo or ...omg, the list is too long. The End

A piece of abstract office art was left in the hall at my place of work a couple years ago when someone retired. I must have glanced at it a dozen times in passing before realizing it was a picture of a peloton. It now hangs on the wall of my cube.

Huh, could not find that song. Perhaps it was "underground". Like the PCBs themselves, no doubt.

What does this brewer have against hoarders?! My junkpile and I are taking that a bit personally!

@Mad Honk - 4%??? That's not artistic, that's washwater.
You live in dry county country?
You should join the real World.

Left Coast,
you can Hula,

and spleef to your heart's content.
Release all that vulgar hate.
Peace & Love.

Well I didn't brew it! It was a gift just like the eight pack of these that recommends no more than two at a time. No I don't know what they have against hoarders. Perhaps they have seen the inside of the shop here, who needs ten sets of NIB Campy hubs anyway other than me. Har! MH

scarlson This is the current batch of re-furbished hub sets and bottom brackets. About the same amount to get to over the next couple months of Covid house arrest (without the fancy ankle bracelet). I sure hope the War Department gets one of my collector friends to come deal with all of this upon my demise, instead of having a grudge sale. Smiles, MH

completed sets of hubs and bottom brackets, derailleur still needs to be dealt with and install sealed bearing pulleys.
