It crossed my mind, but I didn't want to start any broke back mountain jokes.

^^^excellent costumes ... not sure I'd have the patience to get that make-up correct.


Question for the group: Anyone have a reliable method to measure spring rate?

Anyone in the Northeast Columbus area, swing by the corner of 605/Condit Road and Central College.

There is a guy with a RM 125 (I think) half buried in his front yard with a skeleton rider, set up to look like he is escaping his grave, complete with 666 number plates. At night it's all strobed out. I keep meaning to grab a picture before he takes it down.

I've been slowly working my way through the eight Kentucky Bourbon Ales a friend bought me for my birthday. Good stuff, but one is usually enough for me.

Speaking of beer, we went to 101 Beer Kitchen last night (the old Hoggy's on Sawmill Road). I was really amped after reading the beer list and menu.....and left way disappointed. They didn't have half the beers on the list, the food was lackluster, and the ambiance was what i was fearing...Dublin hipster/yuppie douches....Barley's by the North Market remains my choice for good beer in Columbus...

For beer brewed in C-bus? Or for choice/selection? Barley's is a good local beer. Rockmill (Lancaster) is a really good local(-ish) beer.

For choice/selection, I like Bob's Bar near Graceland Shopping Center.

Bobs Bar is awesome. I like Barley's for the ambiance of the joint, the food, the house (and guest) beers, and the fact that I have never had a bad experience with a server or bartender there.

I see a World of Beers is coming to easton...should be full of pretentious beer snobs....

Meredith went as a cop.

I had to work... I would have gone as a female nurse if I'd been off...

Hang the spring by a wire or rope on the last coil and measure the length of the spring. Then take a known weight and hang it from the other end of the spring. Measure the new length of the spring. Subtract the first length from the second length to find the difference.

Divide the weight by the difference in length and that is the spring rate in pounds per inch or whatever units you used.

Alternatively set the spring on a table and set a weight on top of it and see how much it is compressed.

Bike Maintanance

I came home from work early and got a new chain and sprockets, a new rear tire, and an oil change done on the KLR. It now has about 47k miles on it. I got about 12k miles out of the chain and sprockets that I just replaced and they were toast. They probably would have done better if I did a bit better at cleaning and lubing.

I also got a new rear tire put on the Strom which now has a bit more than 58k miles on it. I am getting pretty good at replacing the rear tire on that bike because I have lots of practice.

Now we just need some decent weather
