Re: Don't you hate losing that tiny part on your shop floor?

I made a career of dropping small typewrtier/ ATM/ computer parts   on the floor so I had to get really good at finding it.

IME you don't look for the part ... you look at the floor

Re: Can't get the stink out, it's been hanging round for days...

I got some Sombrio shorts you can use a  shoe lace or a real belt  to keep them up ...works great

Seen it in paddling with Neorprene booties and such, you need some thing to  chemicaly deal with stink

that would be Mirazyme or the Nikwax  product

or just try vinegar

Trump said 800K people wanted tickets to his Tulsa event.  6200 people attended.

Rumor is that a bunch of "youths" spammed the ticket requests to inflate the demand.

I heard it was the Tik tok & k pop crowd

You heard?  As in you're in the loop? Or you just saw the CBC article and also think its the funniest thing ever.   

Brilliant move, even if its 20% truth

It was all my idea

Re: Best Saddle of all time

you can rip a brand new saddle in one ride, nothing wrong with the saddle but it is no longer a virgin

so I've fixed the cover on a few with VLP liquid vinal repair and aqua seal. Saddles tend to get torn on the sides/edges at the back 

so before they get too fucked up I smear a bit on the worn spots, on long rips its possible to do half the rip at a time by tapeing

the edges togetehr on half the rip at a time, it ain't perfect but its way cheaper than a new saddle 

I've never tried recovering  a saddle but I will have to get some leather from my local Louis Vitton dealer and giverago

re: posting picts, you don't upload to NSMB ? I assume you have to up load your pict to another picture hosting site and then link to that ?

Re: Bike friendly craft brewpubs

If he wasnt driving an E-car Taylor liked them funky commuter bikes, a cargo bike, a nomad,  he would ride these things around town wearing really dapper suits and a white helmet  which I am sure  drove the mouth-breathers  crazy, in any case T is history cuz he has hit the big time ...

Re: Do you support the idea to 'defund the police'?

Re: Bike friendly craft brewpubs

both craft brew are on town streets with wide sidewalks but there are  lots of bike racks in this town cuz they ordered bike racks but the supplier fucks up the order, sends not what was ordered so the town keeps those racks, the supplier redoes the order and we end up with twice as many bike racks for the same price.

you would not believe how many average citizens were pissed off about spending money on bike racks, so they got pissed off at mayor Bachrach and started calling him mayor BikeRack

Re: Bike friendly craft brewpubs

what is " bike friendly " some bike racks or events or ?

BV brewery has a "peak to pint" every year , mass start at the top of HBM ending at the brewery where you chug a beer still sitting on the bike

The fastest DH rider in town is not old enough to drink beer so they buy him some root beers,

if your karma is bad the train arrives and blocks  the crossing while the people you raced down the hill catch up ... happened last year to me.

better policing might be better, defunding police will happen right after oil gets banned
