    My cousins and I invented Big Wheel Jumping in the mid-seventies. You're welcome.:rofl

    (We did pad our landings with the cushions from my aunt's kitchen chairs. We ended up with sore backsides but it wasn't from the landings. :lol3)

    Just need a hill. :thumb

    I wish you the best.

    I don't have problems until I go above 190bpm. At that point, I feel like I can't get enough air. I guess that's my "red zone". :lol3

    No chain tool!

    Don't need one on a road bike and I already have 2 separate 'travel-size' chain tools for mtn biking. One of my chain tools is older than some of the people I ride with!

    I looked into those tools...then went down to the LBS. They're expensive! :lol3

    I was charged $35 and I think that's a decent price. I get good deals on service there. I read up on whether or not I should have it done and like usual, some said yes and others said it wasn't necessary. My reasoning for having it done was that it wouldn't hurt and since I was dealing with a bare frame, now would be the time to do it. This is a middle of the road build too. Nothing fancy.

    Sorry to hear that. Missing out on a day like today in Dec is almost criminal.

    Agreed. Feckers never called so they can go fuck themselves, I'm riding tomorrow (if the weather cooperates that is).

    I can't say I went for a run 'cause there was lots of stopping and :scratch going on 'cause my co-hare and I were 'planning' Sun's trail, but I did jog a bit today.

    Not the same as riding. Not at all!

    Winter might be here soon. It's pissing down rain for the second day this week since Monday. Arrgh. At least I got out yesterday for 11.4 miles of single track... in shorts. It was 63 degrees.:ricky

    That was easy.

    They rolled me into the cardiac cath lab at 0825 and I was back in the recovery room at 0905. They found no blockage which is a great relief.

    I need to watch my cholesterol and we need to determine why I get dizzy when my HR goes over 175 or so but, with a family history of heart issues and atherosclerosis, it's great to have confirmation of no blockage and no structural issues.
