Addiction 2021.2

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

I believe siding goes on the side of houses. Don’t quote me on that.

I only had the 130mm hubs in for a season, so I never bothered to reset the dropout. Since, I'm building up a new wheelset with the old 126mm hubs, it's just as well.

Nice! Our house is a much modified 1939 brick shitbox with a really nice 1970s era contemporary extension wrapping around it in an L-shape. They covered the brick with aluminum clapboard-style siding to tie it together, but it’s weathered and dented and an awful color. Something like what you’ve got would really look good and we can get rid of the stupid fake shutters.

Lots of options. Ours is a contemporary built approx 1972, when we bought it 20 years ago it had its original exterior which was delaminating and we chose to keep the vertical boards but went with low maintenance. We replaced the original windows at the same time. Never had shutters.

Not to be confused with sliding.

Trainsnorter trivia: I worked for a guy doing siding when I was a ute. I don't remember much about it except as predicted, I fell a story and a half while putting soffit up. Luckily, it was spongy ground and didn't hurt much.

Being a ute might have also been a factor in the effects of the fall.

My brother used to work for the state version of OSHA, in North Carolina. One of his friends there was a contractor of some variety. Used to make fun of my brother for pushing him to use fall protection, saying experienced guys like him didn't need it.

Then he fell off scaffolding and messed up his back.

If it was Class 2, then it kind of is. They have a throttle.

Can't say. It's a 8-9 mph, out of saddle kind of hill, and he passed me doing at least twice that.

See my posting above. Our house had that but it falls apart (delaminates) if not maintained. We replaced it with vinyl siding, which we hope lasts the lifetime of the house.

We've been gone 20 years. New products abound, I am sure.
