    In north Alabama, morning will start off around 50°, and warm up to about mid 60's. Gray skies, but no rain til Sunday afternoon, so they say.

    Now, the slider is completely worn out and just glides around up there if unrestrained. So now the wire nut makes a great place to anchor the required rubber band, which holds it in either the on or the off position.

    EDIT: I really need a new camera.

    For me, biting cold is awful to be out in. The chill makes my exposed areas (nose, lips, ears) numb. I'd never consider riding in the rain because it just grooves out the trails here. Baking hot (over 90 degrees) is pretty bad but it can be managed by riding early or at night.

    Sissy!!

    Speaking of sissies, last weekend I waited until afternoon to ride because low 50's in the morning seemed kinda chilly.

    Like the ambassador, I avoid riding in the rain or immediately afterward, don't want to damage the trails, but it only rains a few times a year here so there's no reason to not sit out a rain day. High 40's are ok, as long as the sun is out, it rarely is colder here and if it is it's only for a very short period. 85-95 is perfect in my book, 110 is just fine too.

    Hey, not trying to derail anything here, and not necessarily trying to start conversation or debate, but more of a "Holy Shyt". One of my employees, a 23 year old shop gopher, nice kid, was shot 4 times last night. He's alive, but in pretty rough shape. "Holy Shyt"

    Took 1 round through a hand, 1 through a lung, 1 through his bladder, all in and out, but the 4th lodged in his groin. I guess they had to take out some intestine, couple of transfusions, bad. His dad runs one of my big horizontal mills.

    Should be a very similar field of view as a handle bar mount, but since it's on the top tube, should be very stable and smooth. (compared to handle bar always swingin around)
    I like that location. Here's hoping for less jello!

    I think I heard, not that it's true, just that I heard it, that you can block your license plate IF you have a bike on, but if you don't have a bike on, you can't. I'm sure it varies state by state.

    He also said that if I had a light road bike, I would be able to climb the steep Iowa Hill Road with a compact double instead of my triple with mtb gearing that I have on my road bike. Iowa Hill Road is 1.75 miles long with a 12.5% average grade. Here's a video of me climbing and descending it a couple months ago. I got a Strava QOM on the descent, but was the slowest of all the women on the climb

    Turn up the volume and you will hear why I sincerely doubt I would ever be able to climb that hill with a compact double unless I had a lighter body, not bike !

    <iframe src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/JGYNZ_QEQO4" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" width="560"></iframe>

    After seeing how fast the singlespeed/fixed gear riders are around town (like my friend), I decided I wanted a singlespeed. Last night I stopped by our local bicycle food delivery/LBS Edible Pedal. They are always putting bikes together for sale, and this time they had a bright yellow vintage Peugeot mixte frame with modern alloy components instead of the original old-school heavy steel. It was also single speed.

    I rode it up and down the alley a couple times and I was hooked. I thought about it for a few minutes, then decided to buy it. It was only $450, down from the original asking price of $650. It was professionally powder coated and had the shop's logo on the bike like a regular bike brand name. Pretty convincing if you don't know that it's actually a shop and not a manufacturer.

    I took it home, added my accessories (including a brand-new Lezyne Super Drive 450 lumen headlight that Mike's Bikes had on sale for $69.95), adjusted the rear brakes, and topped off the tires. Today I dropped off my Dahon Speed D7 folding bike to be sold on consignment. I really don't need to accumulate any more bikes (I have 11), so I try to sell one when I buy a new one.

    After that I met my friend the roadie again for a ride. He was tickled pink when he saw the bike. We went and rode up and down what passes for hills around here, which is some very short steep grades in the Land Park neighborhood. I stood up and hammered up every one of them, and there was no straining. I now have a new training tool for the short local hills. I'll even ride it to Fair Oaks and climb those hills. Some of them are 1/3 and 1/2 mile long, and a couple have very short sections with grades in the teens. Should be interesting !



    42x17 gear.





    Here's video of my friend and me riding the "hills".

    There you go, freighttrain. QOM's, here you come!! What you've already found, and what you will find, is pretty much why I SS. There's nothing like powering up a hill in a steep gear, where yesterday you were sitting back crawling along spinning an easy gear, figuratively speaking. If you get lazy, you walk.

    So i come home from doing some running around before work, and i look out the window and see this in the park across the street...




    In case you cant see it clearly enough-



    Someone snuck in a cross course in the park!

    I walked over and there happened to be a few folks riding by, so I posed a "WTF?!?!" I was told that this is the course for the season-ender in the local CX series which is being run tomorrow, and the riders I saw were the club members giving it a test run after laying it out while I was away running errands. Lucky me, I am off work tomorrow...but Im about to go to work now, so I dont even get a chance to ride it.

    Unless...I go out and hit it tonight after work in the dark Oh, what to do, what to do...

    You are kidding me, aren't you? I try to ride out of state every chance I get. Or at least new dirt. New dirt is like getting something strange.

Iowa Hill Road is 1.75 miles long with a 12.5% average grade. Here's a video of me climbing and descending it a couple months ago. I got a Strava QOM on the descent, but was the slowest of all the women on the climb

    Turn up the volume and you will hear why I sincerely doubt I would ever be able to climb that hill with a compact double unless I had a lighter body, not bike !

    After seeing how fast the singlespeed/fixed gear riders are around town (like my friend), I decided I wanted a singlespeed. Last night I stopped by our local bicycle food delivery/LBS Edible Pedal. They are always putting bikes together for sale, and this time they had a bright yellow vintage Peugeot mixte frame with modern alloy components instead of the original old-school heavy steel. It was also single speed.

    I rode it up and down the alley a couple times and I was hooked. I thought about it for a few minutes, then decided to buy it. It was only $450, down from the original asking price of $650. It was professionally powder coated and had the shop's logo on the bike like a regular bike brand name. Pretty convincing if you don't know that it's actually a shop and not a manufacturer.

    I took it home, added my accessories (including a brand-new Lezyne Super Drive 450 lumen headlight that Mike's Bikes had on sale for $69.95), adjusted the rear brakes, and topped off the tires. Today I dropped off my Dahon Speed D7 folding bike to be sold on consignment. I really don't need to accumulate any more bikes (I have 11), so I try to sell one when I buy a new one.

    After that I met my friend the roadie again for a ride. He was tickled pink when he saw the bike. We went and rode up and down what passes for hills around here, which is some very short steep grades in the Land Park neighborhood. I stood up and hammered up every one of them, and there was no straining. I now have a new training tool for the short local hills. I'll even ride it to Fair Oaks and climb those hills. Some of them are 1/3 and 1/2 mile long, and a couple have very short sections with grades in the teens. Should be interesting !



    42x17 gear.





    Here's video of my friend and me riding the "hills".

    I know I could do all that in my 26 granny so I'm sure you could.
