Shit, I would. Ballroom dancing, too. Good dancing is, in my opinion, along the lines of running, jumping and other basic human physical activities: it's a "pure sport".

DulcoLax or Colace should be prescribed with those drugs.

Yeah, it's a really good price on the crank. Doesn't look as goofy as some of the later ones. I just bought my 661 Recon from them and they sent me a email flier with that deal on it.

So I went to the Denver Veloswap today. Walked out w a pair of lycra knee warmers an nuthin else.

Knowing that I'm fairly well equipped an only need a few minor things is a good feeling. If any of y'all have a set of Rival brakes (silver) for cheep, I'm all . Otherwise, *I* should be the one selling...

Something I discovered yesterday...
I had pulled my mtb pedals and fancy seat off the Pinarello along with the tires and hauled them back home to use on the Roubaix. Yesterday I decided I felt well enough to play with tire changing.
I pulled the front off the Roubaix and as I was looking at the sidewall of the tire I brought back to determine the rotation, I notice this tire looks really familiar.

Really familiar... It turns out both bikes have the same tires.

I am a moron.

I put the tire I took off back on and am folding up the two I hauled down here to take back tomorrow and re-install on the Pinarello.

Today is the first day that the day dawned clear here since I've been home. Every other day dawned damp with overcast low clouds or fog. I'm in no way ready to go back to cycling yet. My cold having not yet left the building.

I'm still battling the remnants of something I picked up on my way to Chicago. Not ready to get back into 'training' but I've been riding.

Old rule of thumb: don't train again till symptoms have been gone 3 days.

Another old rule of thumb: if yer cold is above the neck, you can ride easy just don't go hard. Below the neck, stay off the bike till the above holds true.

Hope you get better soon!

Mine is all chest. I still have to use cough medicine and decongestant to sleep or breathe. But, it is better than it was a week ago.

I figure by next weekend I'll be able to ride again. so it should be raining for me in Seattle by then.

Need to find some warm-ish gloves once I'm up there.

Rain, rain and more rain. OK, not rain, "showers"... like that's not still wet.

That would be the 'north wet' for ya.

G'luck!

(oh, and wear lots of Merino base layers. At least wool insulates when its wet!)
