I sat out most of June and all of July ( lucky for you guys).

Thankfully, I read that the 90*F temps are all behind us Seattle area residents.
Prayers for all being threatened by wildfires.

Pub content = Stay thirsty my friends.

edit: This was my ride through the TdF. Just call me Mr. Poseur, iíll drink to it.

Re-read post #1 and this Sticky is supposed to be about chit-chat. Iím not good at social chit-chat, but hereís my cycling version.
Got the pictured bike worked over by some real proís at a C&V gathering. Wheels and drivetrain dialed-in to the millimeter. Now every time I hop on another of my bikes, if it gives me any chit-chat - I get very annoyed.



YMMV
Itís been mostly a lonely summer at my personal Pub67. Not a bad thing, really. But no intentions of shuttering the place. The best Holidays are ahead of us with the days getting noticibly shorter.

A Humphrey for me

Wonder what Bogart drank in his pub? And what he rode?




A Drysdale Velox Red Devil seems appropo for Hollywoodís man.


Or a Claude Butler as a roadie.

The quote by French in the first paragraph about the corkscrew is pretty good...





No corkscrew needed for this IPA...

Any corkscrew collectors in the Pub?

Somewhere packed away, I have a few cocktail shakers from 40s or 50s.
