Cheap-ass bike repair #1:



Stripped out the threads on whatever cheap pot metal bolt it was in the seat height adjustment.

Replaced it with a new one and we're good to go.

I also raised the seat up some more and it feels much better than it did, and Id noticed the last couple of rides that my handle bars were angled with the grips down too far. I dunno if from me resting on them did that or if it came that way, but I leved them out so I think that'll help with the numbness.

Both are fine rides.
I've heard of the HHH before.

Back in highschool I used to shoot sports a lot and even though I only did it a hand full of times I really enjoyed shooting cycle races.

We shot a race at Possum Kingdom from back of my photo teacher's 4runner, a race in DT ft worth and a few races at the superdrome.

I should get back into that.

Supposedly they're pretty common down here, but I've only ever seen them in aquarium settings.

There is nothing wrong with the "Great" state of Alabama and its people!

I usually ride about 10 miles.
Seat height is such that you reach ALMOST full leg extension at the bottom of each crank? Seat is positioned so that dent on the inside of your knee is over the ball of your foot?

We used to see them pretty regularly in GA. They'd just get out on the road and lay there in the sun.

Yeah ain't that the truth!

I'm up in the air about the 30mm knobbies I got on the bike, thinking about going down to a 28mm touring tire.
