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

Excellent

In a way not that different from our reality - emptying out a house to put it on the market leads to getting rid of lots of stuff as well.

Nearly everyone I know has too much stuff. Some people we know have multiple houses - each one stuffed. Some have storage units with extra stuff.

Wade Phillips and Bill Belichick are the best defensive minds in the game. Both teams were playing a shut down game, with great physicality.

Hey does anyone know how "bad" or risky it is to reuse a Shimano 10 speed chain link? I pushed it out enough to disassemble the chain and it feels so tempting to just push it back in like the good old days.

If I recall, I tried to push a pin back one time and couldn't get it to go all of the way in. Post in the mechanics section.

@DougRNS must be really kicking himself that he didn't drop several thousand to see the game for the ages last night.

I'll have to remember Super Bowl LIII for the next time someone says Americans don't like soccer because of the low scoring games.

I did not try to push it back yet. Posted in mechanics for some wisdom.
