We once talked about how much body weight goes into the handlebars. I
said most weight should go into the pedals, but that it was one of
those super-complex dynamic things.


Now it occurs to me that there's one time - at the top of each stroke,
when weight must come off to switch to the other pedal.[...]


The handlebars should carry the weight of the lower arms and hands only..
The rest of the rider's weight should be on the seat, with a
significant portion being carried by the seat back.

Just curious, Tom. A number of your "reply posts" appear as new
threads, with no "Re." in the Subject field.


Any idea why?


Because I update thread titles to match the subject when thread drift
occurs. However, many programs will still recognize previous posts in
the thread, e.g. Mozilla Thunderbird provides a "references" line in the
header, where the previous posts up-thread are numbered, and can be
accessed simply by clicking on the number.

Or Micro$oft Windows Live Mail 15.4.3502.922 *not* recognizing the
signature separator, i.e " --". It seems Micro$oft is too arrogant to
follow established protocols.

Hey, the remnant question mark seems to be gone, at least. No idea why
they'd CHANGE the '' quoting convention, which worked fine in LiveMail
until the 2011 "upgrade".

I still think you should indicate that you're /replying/ to content in the
Subject field, even if resorting to the ol' "Was: Tibetan Monkey Spams
Newsgroups Relentlessly" (for example) shtick.

Anything that lets you type in the message body ought to let you
insert quote delimiters.

Sure but it's pretty annoying when you have long lived threads to keep
track of who wrote what. (couldn't happen here but still...)

With the last update of WLM that removed the auto quote, I switched to
Thunderbird.

That is not the widely adopted signature separator
recognized and respected by most news reader programs.
