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

Helicopter tape/frame protection tape. There's a lot out there, tons on Amazon, but the Lizard Skins stuff was what was available to me, locally/immediately.

Frame. I have some in the same spot on the front of the HT. I usually put a strip on the DS chainstay, too, 'cause I tend to pedal heel-in.

One of the better flavors out there

The phone is steadily losing features. I can no longer turn on the flashlight with the double chop. And this morning I suddenly have no notifications. Both are turned on. I have been perusing new phone options.

My shifter has no more clicks, so it seems that my chain is not in sync with my RD?? I feel like this should be an easy fix but I think I am over thinking it. Any suggestions?
My Trek does this as well, but for me it's got to have something to do with how close the derailleur hanger is to the smallest cog. The RD just can't move over far enough to the right, even with the limit screw all the way out. I've just lived with it, 9/10 is good enough for me, I've never missed the 12T.

Maybe the pit bull part adds something...
well the maybe-myasthenic husky was supposedly too aggressive to handle normally. But at the time of examination too neuromuscularly weak to bite. so he was wannabe belligerent.

Otherwise all my patients were sweetie pies yesterday except that one of the pit bulls did attack and kill the owners cat several years ago. (!). She is never sketchy around humans though.

Back in the late 70s, it was said that you shouldn't be sad, 'cause two out of three ain't bad.

Nine out of ten? Now, that's progress for ya.

Oof. It would be really difficult for me to carry on with a pet that had killed another pet (cats targeting small birds/rodents notwithstanding).

Didn't think so.

Good point.

More importantly, aren't there more productive things she enjoys doing, or is vetting a potential life partner her only interest?

My brother's golden retriever went after his baby. That didn't last long.

They probably smell better than humans too.

Unacceptable, they shouldn't be lumped together. Rodents are a pest whereas birds, other than pigeons and canadian geese, are not.

Mine didn't come with any tape - I picked up that clear stuff at REI or an LBS.

Why Canada Geese are still protected is beyond me. Must be some treaty with Canada or something, prolly related to all the Mericans with "kittens". Ironic, really.
