    @Ridge probably doesn’t even know what a pop top is.

    If a fellow didn't know better he might think that was a ShaverSport logo...

    Talk about old timers...

    Lois is going to the movies tomorrow afternoon with a friend.
    I figure I'll see if I remember how to ride a bicycle.

    I just noticed that the new builds have the 50/34 but mine is 46/36. It looks like they made the switch to 50/34 in Nov 17 so what you get could be different. My bike was NOS so just be on the lookout based on how old the bike is that you are looking at. I bought an OEM 34 cassette for $20 so not a big deal and I’m not worried about the 46 since I doubt I’ll spin it out very often.

    It rained stormed like the end of the world last night. Sky was yellow, green, a weird lavender for a while. Lots of branches down in the Ardennes this morning.

    When I checked the weather I saw this:

    Well, humidity notwithstanding, not bad conditions. Bit of rain later on but warm enough that it shouldn't be a bother.

    My office is beginning to smell a bit like a locker room. I suppose that's part of the deal. We have showers in this building, so I truly cannot complain.

    Better than not carrying enough I've learned.

    Well my plans fell thru. We got called to daycare duties up at the air base.
    So we entertained the two little boys for a while. Got lost thanks to the nav system in the car.
    I knew sort of which direction to head. And we were headed back to base so I knew I could get close. Saw some cool stuff at the little aquarium close here.
    San Pedro is pretty in places.
    Maybe I can ride on Friday?

    I finally got a smart phone and my fancy smancy bike computer has died. Any free phone apps that give you all the basic ride info stuff? Elevation gain and heart rate would be a plus, but not absolutely necessary. I don't really want to join Strava and become part of the fake racer club.

    I use Strava. I don't look at leaderboards, I make sure my information is hidden, and don't pay a dime. I don't look at other folks and they don't need to look at me. It's strictly for my best time up Big Shitey or how many miles I've done. That's that. I could give a toss about a KOM. Sometimes when I'm driving past a cyclist, I'll roll the window down and yell out, "bro, I own this KOM. Sit up, you'll never take it." If I have a KOM anywhere on this planet, I'll eat my vintage Colnago cycling hat. Sometimes they actually do sit up. Sometimes they drop a gear and charge.

    I don't know that it does HR for free, though it might.

    All ears about any other apps I should be investigating. :ear

    Strava does HR for free, you can set it up to private and not follow anyone and I think it will be what you want. You could look at similar things out there: ride with gps, and probably others.
