See how you hadn't fared any better with thicker layers of puncture protection?

If I were Joerg, I'd be after steel belted tires. I'll settle for a
flat once every couple years.
(it actaully took half a block to go flat, I could hear something
hitting the chain stay, but couldn't figure it out. The 'pssst' gave
it away a few seconds later.)

Tank tracks. If the bicycle manufacturers only understood how to build bikes, they would spec them with tank tracks. This one little company got it right. https://lunacycle.com/luna-m1-tank-t...onversion-kit/ I've been doing that on my own for years -- with a solid rubber front tire. If you want it done right, you have to do it yourself. It's just like making beer.. Did I mention I make beer? Did I mention mountain lions? Scared cows? God-fearing country-folk? Hors categorie gnar?

Lunacycle has great products. You can build a more bold version though,
see at 2:03min:

They forget the MP3 player and the cup holders though.

Just brewed up another Pliny clone and for the first time a Belgian
Quadrupel. Got to watch that Belgian though, the fermentation is going
almost "nucular". It should clock in above 9% but will need 12 weeks
until done.

I doubt you can get the same hops or the proprietary yeast -- to the extent that matters.

You should skip the Clorox fest and go watch the Tour of California. Stages 5-7 are in your neighborhood. The Friday stage starts in Folsom. You should go and touch Peter Sagan. "Nyes, the legs, if they work, maybe it good, but you know?" I want to learn to interview like Peter! Some of the best Europros who decided to skip the Giro are there You can go talk German to the Germans. Shoot the sh** with Marcel Kittel. Ask him for hair care tips.

It tastes remarkably close to the real thing. Tons of different hops and
it needs to be dry-hopped twice in secondary fermentation. It would
probably be possible to extract and grow the yeast from a store-bought
bottle. Problem is, you can hardly ever buy the stuff and that is the
main reason why I brew it. Soon I'll have 50+ bottles of it. They should
be left alone for a couple of months for aging but that requires a level
of self-discipline I have a hard time with.

I used yeast I extracted from a Koelsch that I brewed two weeks ago and
just racked off to secondary. So my Pliny clone is 1% German I guess.

Hmm, I have to see because I actually get through that area on my road
bike. Though I find road bike races utterly boring. People wait and wait
and wait, then the peloton zips by, followed by a few stragglers, and
that was it.

https://www.folsom.ca.us/visitors/th...california.asp

Maybe I can sneak into a celebration ride but with panniers, non-Lycra
clothes, MTB pedals and mud caked onto the bike frame they'd probably
kick me out.

There ain't much hair left on top to care for. And no, I am never
getting into the habit of shaving leg hair just to squeeze another 500
milliseconds out of a 4h ride.

You forgot uber lumen lights and rechargeable batteries that can be used
in a cryogenic freezer and the surface of the sun.

Maybe so, but it was still hilarious satire.
