Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Another mile for a metric. I see you're not anal either.

Today we also had a mildly windy ride, about 10-15 mph into a headwind on the outbound and a wicked fast return. Fun ride. First time I had to put on arm warmers this year. Temps began around 60*.

Not too shabby, but joints will need a little tweak here and there. Still needs a lot of smoothing and sanding, too. Undecided what I'll do as far as the finish.

Have I beaten the flop thread into submission, or is it going to rear up its ugly head again?

Flop is one half of a pair of flip-flops.

I have a Nasbar aluminum project bike I built up a couple years ago but have not really ridden, going to take it out for my club's 50 mile recovery ride tomorrow. Will try to post pics, as long as no one teases me about my floppy stem.

I don't have this kind of talent. When I had shop class in 7th and 8th grade, the teacher advised me to go store-bought in the future.

I respectfully point out that you spelled it wrong. I think you meant "hamered". More importantly, is that the active or passive voice? Did you hamer, or were you hamered?

No reflection on you, but I never felt that shtik was that funny anyway, certainly not funny enough to warrant institutionalizing. In fact I've always felt it was kept alive initially by a group of mean-spirited individuals who just wanted to keep making fun of somebody. THEN down the road a piece it became institutionalized by tradition, by people who weren't even here when it originated. But to me the origins weren't that funny and still today it's not that funny.

But that's just me.

I think you must be right on, because I know nothing about the genesis of the joke. It seemed well established and well accepted. I mean, I hadn't heard anything negative about it before just now. I do understand what you are saying though, and just from more recent history, I can imagine how it all started. I'm not invested in it at all, so I'll ask for a pass this time and just let it go.

Ryan provided some golden threads. I liked the kid and even tried to help him out but he was his own worst enemy. Still, his phrases and misspellings keep on giving.

I miss him.

Thanks, fellas. The slabs still need a little work on being square, flat and uniform (there's as much as a 1/16" variation in thickness as they sit in the photo), but I hope to get that done today. The bad thing about using hand tools is that they can be relatively slow. The good thing about using hand tools, however, is that they can be relatively slow and, therefor, forgiving - it's hard to make a big mistake when you're shaving off less than 1/64" at a time.

More work today, with interruptions for food and football.
