    morning so he ...

    I got the CRS back from the shop yesterday with the longer stem and the tweaked saddle position
    and wanted to do another 60 mile, 4 hour minimum ride to see how the changes affected the

    And another 40 miles. 25 with Steve and 15 with Frank C. He showed up as we pulled into the

    Did another 40 mile, usual route today. The first 25 was with Steve; his first ride since his

    wife and rod...
