    Asking the LBS was more expedient, TE. A replacement has been added to the winter tune up. If I
    can wait that long. I'm wondering if there is a better basic chain available. The bike came
    with a Shram...

    Nice weather here, too. My transmission has been noisy for a couple weeks. Clatter, clatter
    most pronounced in lower gears. Less precision down shifting. First stop was the LBS to ask if
    the chain is ...

    In the 50s & windy ~ took a planned day off. A cab driver asked me for directions last week. He

    How the hell do you all do so many miles? Another goal was controlling my blood pressure. It

    I first saw this Gray Heron in the water through the hedgerow, it was in this downed tree by
    the time I got the camera out and zoomed in. It's been real dry all summer.

    Thanks, folks. This season is about done so I'll get a new one in spring. The cage is worn down
    to the metal which stains the bottle. Maybe I should get a vinyl cage?

    I use a Polar insulated bottle ~ 2 seasons old.

    Why dos water taste of plastic after only an hour in my water bottle? I've tried a few & they
    all make the water taste bad. I even send the bottle through the dish washer but it still
    stinks of plasti...

    The season is winding down up north here. I wanted 1000 miles but it looks like I'll miss that.
    The enjoyment factor increased in this my 3rd full season riding. How are your goals doing?
