    So many benefits to riding a bicycle......

    My co-trail steward has that Salsa and likes it but not everyone wants an AL frame. A bike shop owning friend warns the good value of the Marins at times means needing to chase the head and seat tubes. He's particular and still sells them so I would not worry. From your post I'm reminded bike...

    So many benefits to riding a bicycle......

    A friend has linked that YouTube guy knowing and questioning why our whole family and others love our steel Honzo. Now there are lots of alternatives to the OG modern hardtails and to me some are going too slack. Our earlier Honzo really does about everything. It's fun to ride to a pump track...

    So many benefits to riding a bicycle......

    Me too. When people think we're nuts I point out our bodies and minds are in good shape across the whole family. In another post @Stanford Guitar and I discussed the value of adventure sports with kids.

    So many benefits to riding a bicycle......

    @Honga Man @Stanford Guitar It might be important to know advising really wide rims is recent in the whole life of modern tubeless bike technology. A 40 mm tire on a 21 mm inner rim should work considering it was very common or standard to have 50-56 mm tires on that 21-23 mm rims for quite a...

    So many benefits to riding a bicycle......

    I was aware of that but got and can still return the Bontrager current version of flash charger that was sort of the OG product for this. As much as I have other pumps, the simplicity was compelling. So far I'm on the fence. Even my inexpensive Craftsman pancake type compressor does better...

    So many benefits to riding a bicycle......

    I thought it was public service effort not doing that but confess it helps to cut the drag when I do some more epic two wheel travels. My standard uniform is wear sports oriented street clothing over bike liners or a swim suit or whatever is right for the job. This is maybe sexist, but my wife...

    So many benefits to riding a bicycle......

    Our area has a Fortune 500 firm that moved to our specific municipality and very successful firms in the area. Fortunately some including the one that moved the HQ mandated good infrastructure including quality of life infrastructure. There's a pathway network in the industrial park connected to...

    Vintage Bicycles

    Here are some pics from the vintage story about my bro's woman/gf/partner. The repainted yellow French bike and the blue one original were used in **** era Olympics. She's sold the two IH Scouts and antique guns as well as a lot of vintage Campy parts. There's a new in box 2002 Bianchi...

    So many benefits to riding a bicycle......

    Totally on @Stanford Guitar and the article's point. I made big lifestyle changes about when I joined here. I common sensed myself out of health problems, prescriptions, and into size 32 pants. The elevated heart rate really helps set my tone to be a better leader and think out problems. The...

    Who is buying them?

    I'm going to say mostly successful people, and there are many of them at all ages. There are also people who gained assets in other common ways such as be born, married, gamble and invest.

    When Did Everything Become An Investment?

    When marketing department terms usurped the meanings of words set in traditional dictionaries? I admit I'll get annoyed with how the word investment can be used but blame that on getting an economics degree after very much blue collar type work.

    Bitcoin - Cryptocurrency

    A lot of people don't have both macro and micro level of understanding of payments and trust in currency and commerce let alone blockchain and PKI. Speculation and gambling are popular and addictive. What I see going on is the latter and a misunderstanding of payments, security and trust. Trust...

    So I mentioned Orange County Choppers recently and how fake that show was...

    The property taxes and how public goods get paid for varies across our country and home values can make that really painful. The reality and fix up shows make a lot of living scenarios appear more attractive than they might really be. Our big property tax bill was totally worth it for raising 3...

    So I mentioned Orange County Choppers recently and how fake that show was...

    We have a TV but don't have a conventional source for it like antenna, cable provider or satellite provider. I don't know about it as a badge of honor as much as it being spending we don't care to do. Our other services the TV can play cost less. I don't really dream of EVs as much as I think...

    So I mentioned Orange County Choppers recently and how fake that show was...

    That will be a while. I think of when genetics and superconductivity were big news. We (the species) have had more progress learning the former than the latter. Closer to the two topics, it was having 3 kids in diapers when I have my last TV and I think this show memories. We will watch TV in...
