Pcad may not have a clue, but he does have more Rue

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

That's spiderweb for Halloween. At least, I hope it's for Halloween.

Can you get Rue at the Outback Steakhouse?

Halloween decorations.

Don't worry kidonabike, when I was in college I had a cheesy Alan aluminum frame 10 speed noodly piece of crap bicycle. Schwag is for middle aged idiots with no life.

I'm telling you, you should see the schwag my team mate Alan has. He is the only individual I know who is not in the bicycle industry and actually owns Lew Racing wheels. He is also a middle aged idiot, but a fast middle aged idiot.

Flip it? I spent two years getting the position on that TT bike right. 'Flip it' doesn't apply to TT bikes, not at all.

Your wife can't have the bench, but she is welcome to my cat Chester.

Covered in another thread.

We need a sticky with Pcad's household details -- rugs, cabinets, new deck, elevation charts up Mt. Doom, etc.

That's next. It will be fascinating to see how successful or unsuccessful the BF Virtual Fit process has been.

LOL,
Pcad, I love the fact that you have your avatar picture hanging up in your house. Talk about holding onto the glory days for grim death. I think I you. I take back any bad thing I ever said or thought about you.

Reminds me of the time I was on line at Shoprite and the guy in front of me had milk, eggs and a BLACK LEATHER BELT. Talk about a guy who just didn't give a F$$@ about what people think. I am totally sincere, you are my F#$#$# hero.
With affection,
Lazy

you know...

Belts are pretty good at ordinary things like holding up pants. Just like eggs and milk are pretty good at being ordinary food. Perhaps it never entered in the guy's mind that someone would totally overanalyze the image into something silly and sop****ric.
