    I set the alarm to go for a ride before the grandchildren arrived. The fog is like a London
    morning. Back to work tonight so I need to resume my morning riding schedule. Hopefully the fog
    won't become...

    Don't think you'll ever find Campagnolo components on any Walmart or Target bikes (or REI for
    that matter... ;) ). Perhaps that's why Campy might no be as profitable as Shimano though. I

    LOL...how about you go in front of her instead. Problem solved. ;)That would work but since

    I have no issue with using WD40 to degreaser or loosen stubborn fasteners, but haven't used any

    Sounds like it was an awesome ride. It's a great feeling when you accomplish something that you

    start goin...

    Took off for the MUP nice and early so the wife and I could get back before it became really
    hot. Took her on the new 22.5 mile route and she loved it. Knocked off 8 minutes from her best
    22 mile time...

    Met Lou at the MUP again this morning. He started much earlier than I did so I waited for him
