I took a look back at my strava load from last year. I can tell where I hurt my back, then when I went off the radar traveling.
I hope to make this years graphs look consistent. That will keep the fatbastard I keep channeling at bay.

I hope.

Tonight I plodded out 40minutes on the Dreadmill. Not so bad with the wifi here, I can download my music from the cloud. Though some of that stuff ain't mine.

Hey! You kids, Get off my lawn!

I'll get another ride in Saturday when I get home, but I'll have to work some too. I really hope this lets up a bit. My back is sore, but not so bad I can't ignore it for a while. Only hurts if I move or sit still.

This should be an interesting year. If I get time I'm going to list that old Pinarello on Fleabay and rid myself of at least that.

Heres to hills that don't break my knees and rollers that blow up my lungs.

His specialty is antique and collectable bikes and memorabilia. He also has a good selection of reconditioned commuters. Tell him Omar sent you and he will give you a good deal.

I see how it is. No love for ADV, letting us at least have peek at it before you go throwing it at some hipster who'll turn it into a fixie.

Converting a bike frame to become splittable...

I seem to recall in the distant mists of time seeing a product that were the key components to allow the conversion of a normal bicycle frame to become a folding frame. Essentially, the process involved the machining of one's treasured bike frame in half and the fitment of four parts that allowed the frame to be split and re-joined at will

Any ideas who makes this??

Yes that's the one but up to $700 on top of a frame cost?? That's seems excessive. Is this the only company that makes this type of product? Hello, China?

There are companies that have pre-made frames that are not S&S... Ritchey is one of them.

S&S are the only commercially available retro-fitable ones. The other option is DIY.

Once you've seen an S&S Coupler you won't want anything else.

+1 Why take a chance with other options? Penny-wise/pound-foolish.

I'm having my bike converted from a 3x10 to a 2x10 in a few minutes. Just thought everyone would want to know.

>Speaking of exercise, bike racing is ostensibly a form of exercise, though in practice it's more of a self-indulgent repetitive motion akin to masturbation. Also, like masturbation, bike racing can can be a healthy escape, though when done to excess it just makes you walk around all hunched over and leaves you unable to form any sort of meaningful human relationship.
