n mount a spike where your foot was ?

I read this CHOH nonsense at Backpacker where grabbing a cold one sells mags

Here, distorted realities weakens your positions on all safety concerns.

CHOH is not noticed in USA sea kayaking nor rock climbing AFAIK

I have no A/C. It's 97 degrees currently. Predicted 105 tomorrow and 108 on Thursday. I'll be sleeping in the basement.

AND DRINKING GALLONS AND GALLONS OF WATER because I don't want to have a deadly thirst incident.


BIKE CONTENT: Cannondale is giving me a new CX frame. Not exactly what I wanted, but it's free. Now I have too many bikes. Maybe I'll sell the frame.

Who wants a 48 cm girls frame?

THE NEW BIKE IS AN IMPROVEMENT OVER THE CANNONDALE ?


please describe


Good question because I haven't built-up the bike or even seen the frame.

Compared to the old CX frame, the Search has a lower BB, longer head tube, longer TT, slightly lighter, and it has a better front-end feel. Very planted but not dead. I like it, but it's no sports car. The steering angles on the CX bike plus the pepperoni forks gave it a pretty heavy steering feel.

The Search also has new parts. The old CX bike was a mishmash of old parts, and I'm not exactly sure whether I want to hang them on a new bike. But I could -- particularly since 9sp chains last longer.

The new bike should be BB30 (per web specs) and not BB30A -- Cannondale's new PITA standard (standard 30mm ID, 42mm OD but a bottom bracket shell that is 5mm wider -- so you can't use a standard BB30 crank, but you can use Shimano Hollowtech with Wheels Mfg adapters). I wish it were threaded English.. The new frame also has flat-mount rear disc mounts -- meaning some sort of adapter for the BB7 or new rear brake (I haven't checked), and it has internal "tube" routing -- and I assume that works for ordinary cable housing. I'll need a new headset for a tapered steerer. It doesn't have through axles, so the other stuff should work. It has fender mounts -- but no through hole in the fork, so dyno light would have to go on bars unless I do some "under-crown" mount.

The fire sometimes comes back, though. We (my wife and I,
riding tandem) were on a pretty leisurely club ride a
couple weeks ago. A new young guy had showed up, and we
were riding along chatting with him. He said he rides to
stay in shape for his other sports, etc.

As we talked, one of our club members who's notorious for
such behavior decided to hit high gear and crank away out
front for a while, then wait for the rest of the crew to
catch up. When he did that, the newbie suddenly ended our
conversation, saying something like "Excuse me now..." and
took off.

I though "Excuse me???" and told my wife "Let's go." So we
reeled him in and were a comfortable ten feet behind when
he caught the rabbit. For icing on the cake, our rabbit
guy (as he always does) left the leisurely riders for the
last five miles or so to crank in at 20 - 25 mph . My wife
and I were close behind, and the newbie was a distant
third. It was quite satisfying.

But with a tandem, terrain is everything. If it weren't
fairly flat, we'd happily ride back with the leisurely
crowd.

(P.S. Don't interpret this tale as a claim that I could
stick with Jay, Tom or Duane, let alone James.)

I'm old and slow. I wouldn't ride with you because you'd be
in the middle of the road. I'd keep saying, "hey Frank, get
over here. You're going to get whacked." You would scold me
for being a gutter bunny, although I don't ride on the fog
line and rarely ride anywhere with a gutter. We'd ride up on
Joerg who would have a pannier full of water, a couple CPUs
and a growler. He'd be complaining about psychopaths in cars
and the fact that his Gazelle didn't come with factory
rack-mounts and room for 35mm steel belted tires or a o-ring
chain. He'd have to stop every fifteen minutes to pee. I
don't think this NG would want to ride together.


Only one pee on a 4-5h ride. My PSA test came back 0.4ng/ml so
no "urge to go" from that department. However, I might bow out
of the r.b.t. peloton the millisecond I spot a brewpub. You son
would probably already be in the next county by then and leave
us old farts behind.

My feeling on the matter is: Do NOT drink a 12-pack of beer the
nite before riding the 5 Miles of Hell trail in Utah.


No 12-packs from the store here, it's only our own brew. The good
stuff.


Depends where you buy your beer. My local store has an awesome
selection:
http://www.rainydayportland.com/2012...multnomah.html


Here is our Marco's Cafe, in the middle of this page:

http://www.gonewiththewynns.com/gold-country-ca

Great place. Food is mediocre at best but good brews and good live
music. With dancing.


Beer is passe. There's a brewpub or brewery on every Portland
street corner. http://www.portlandbeer.org/breweries You can get good
Oregon brewed bottled IPAs at Costco.


That is a major line-up. We don't have quite that selection but it's
adequate. However, since I started brewing my own it only matters during
rides. On some MTB rides far off civilization I take a home brew along.
Surpringly it stays very cool in a stainless double-wall thermos and the
constant shaking doesn't seem to harm it much.


Now it's about cannabis -- and maybe hard cider . . . or mead. Hell,
I don't know. No, no . . . its artisanal booze:
http://www.distilleryrowpdx.com/


Try their Hopka:

http://www.indiospirits.com/

Good stuff, just don't ride after too many of those. There are also in
Portland. Where else?


Hops liqueur? Blecchhhh. I'm not an atisanal liquor fan.

Marcos is kind of a dump (but about the only place you could buy espresso drinks 30-40 years ago in PDX). I was posting the picture of the dumpy market down the street with the massive beer collection. They have a zillion bottles and some really arcane stuff. Even the store that is about a third of a mile from my house has a good beer selection. There is a growler fill place across the street from that. You have to like to home brew as a hobby because it is super-easy to just walk down the street and buy a good beer. I have too many other chores to spend time home brewing, but maybe I'll try it when I retire.

having seen first hand in the Netherlands where that leads.

leads ? where to J ?


Peer pressure to try "cooler stuff" - harder drugs - hardcore
addiction - death. The closest one I knew was the 26 year old son of
the owners of my apartment. He had everything going for him, smarts,
beautiful girlfriend, then one day they found his bloated body upside
down in a canal.

Most others were in their 20's and their brains totally fried. Permanent
disability but still decades to have to go on with whatever "life" they
had left in them.

Nobody will convince me that liberalizing drugs is a good thing. Ever.


hanging out with Calder Mailer n Polandski ?

I don't have the palate, and brown liquor tends to give me a headache. When the Scotch snobs convene, I zone out and leaf through Velo News. I follow beer a little bit because it is a big economic driver around here and basically a local pastime like Timbers' soccer or flogging Donald Trump. http://oregoncraftbeer.org/facts/

We do have a burgeoning craft distilling culture, but going to a single tasting would disable me for a week. I was getting some post-ski pizza with the family in Hood River and stumbled across a craft-ish distillery tasting room. It looked very inviting. http://www.drinkmemag.com/wp-content...-in-Oregon.jpg My wife looked at me and shook her head. Too far home on the Gorge in winter . . . at night.

J, no diff tween alcohol n 'drugs'

people are alcoholics n die from what is SPECIFICALLY a poison.

Marijuana, heroin, morphine ...my knowledge list ...are NOT poisonous.

people cannah hold their liquor nor drugs some die some recover.

itsa spectrum of human nature not morality.

however the cannah hold is extremely accelerated with 'drugs' lab developed near immediate blown effects for medicine where as CHOH esp scotch n soda, southern comfort ....require some hard work to arrive

its 75mph vs 160 .....

right Phillip Morris ? morality for the Civil War farmers n tobacco Co millionaires. Pity.

prob with altered consciousness drugs ... I assume opioids rank way high here ...

relieve OR ameliorate experience.

Ritalin is a workable bottom line for 'ameliorate.'

What,abt the nww bike performance ?


I find that new bike performance is limited by my old
legs. YMMV

... and lungs. And ticker. Plus, the fire in my belly is
largely gone.

The fire sometimes comes back, though. We (my wife and I,
riding tandem) were on a pretty leisurely club ride a
couple weeks ago. A new young guy had showed up, and we
were riding along chatting with him. He said he rides to
stay in shape for his other sports, etc.

As we talked, one of our club members who's notorious for
such behavior decided to hit high gear and crank away out
front for a while, then wait for the rest of the crew to
catch up. When he did that, the newbie suddenly ended our
conversation, saying something like "Excuse me now..." and
took off.

I though "Excuse me???" and told my wife "Let's go." So we
reeled him in and were a comfortable ten feet behind when
he caught the rabbit. For icing on the cake, our rabbit
guy (as he always does) left the leisurely riders for the
last five miles or so to crank in at 20 - 25 mph . My wife
and I were close behind, and the newbie was a distant
third. It was quite satisfying.

But with a tandem, terrain is everything. If it weren't
fairly flat, we'd happily ride back with the leisurely
crowd.

(P.S. Don't interpret this tale as a claim that I could
stick with Jay, Tom or Duane, let alone James.)

I'm old and slow. I wouldn't ride with you because you'd be
in the middle of the road. I'd keep saying, "hey Frank, get
over here. You're going to get whacked." You would scold me
for being a gutter bunny, although I don't ride on the fog
line and rarely ride anywhere with a gutter. We'd ride up on
Joerg who would have a pannier full of water, a couple CPUs
and a growler. He'd be complaining about psychopaths in cars
and the fact that his Gazelle didn't come with factory
rack-mounts and room for 35mm steel belted tires or a o-ring
chain. He'd have to stop every fifteen minutes to pee. I
don't think this NG would want to ride together.


Only one pee on a 4-5h ride. My PSA test came back 0.4ng/ml so
no "urge to go" from that department. However, I might bow out
of the r.b.t. peloton the millisecond I spot a brewpub. You son
would probably already be in the next county by then and leave
us old farts behind.

My feeling on the matter is: Do NOT drink a 12-pack of beer the
nite before riding the 5 Miles of Hell trail in Utah.


No 12-packs from the store here, it's only our own brew. The good
stuff.

Depends where you buy your beer. My local store has an awesome
selection:
http://www.rainydayportland.com/2012...multnomah.html


Here is our Marco's Cafe, in the middle of this page:

http://www.gonewiththewynns.com/gold-country-ca

Great place. Food is mediocre at best but good brews and good live
music. With dancing.


Beer is passe. There's a brewpub or brewery on every Portland
street corner. http://www.portlandbeer.org/breweries You can get good
Oregon brewed bottled IPAs at Costco.


That is a major line-up. We don't have quite that selection but it's
adequate. However, since I started brewing my own it only matters during
rides. On some MTB rides far off civilization I take a home brew along.
Surpringly it stays very cool in a stainless double-wall thermos and the
constant shaking doesn't seem to harm it much.


Now it's about cannabis -- and maybe hard cider . . . or mead. Hell,
I don't know. No, no . . . its artisanal booze:

Try their Hopka:

http://www.indiospirits.com/

Good stuff, just don't ride after too many of those. There are also in
Portland. Where else?

Hops liqueur? Blecchhhh. I'm not an atisanal liquor fan.



I don't know. My boss just brought me a bottle of Elijah Craig 12 year
old small batch bourbon. They don't sell it in Quebec but she lives in
Ontario. Not sure what you mean by artisanal liquor but this stuff is
good. Makes me miss New Orleans where I can grab it at the Breaux Mart
along with my tasso and andouille.


I don't have the palate, and brown liquor tends to give me a headache. When the Scotch snobs convene, I zone out and leaf through Velo News. I follow beer a little bit because it is a big economic driver around here and basically a local pastime like Timbers' soccer or flogging Donald Trump. http://oregoncraftbeer.org/facts/

We do have a burgeoning craft distilling culture, but going to a single tasting would disable me for a week. I was getting some post-ski pizza with the family in Hood River and stumbled across a craft-ish distillery tasting room. It looked very inviting. http://www.drinkmemag.com/wp-content...-in-Oregon.jpg My wife looked at me and shook her head. Too far home on the Gorge in winter . . . at night.


Yep, Oregon is special, just like everyone else:
