  1. Most all of my riding is done 4-7 pm. Yeah, usually hottest part of day, but more importantly, the least humid part of the day. I am not a heavy sweater, so I need the lowest humidity possible to keep cool. Another benefit for late in day is sun angle, with less overhead and more through trees. Rode Quarter Notch once about noon...never again. Unless it's overcast/cloudy, then that would be ok.
  2. This is exactly why I bought it. Bike was fine, but for a few gears down. Was driving me nuts, because that was the gear I used for the short, ledgy climbs (still easy to crank, but not enough to spin out.) All good now.
  3. Recently bought a Cyclospirit derailleur hanger tool (amazon). So much better shifting! Probably should've bought one years ago.
  4. Shocked myself this past week on Peddlers@Brushy. Rear slid out on one of the rocky turns, and before I had even thought about it, my foot was already unclipped and pushing me back upright through the turn. Also, had done the "ride flats for 12 rides" thing a while back. Did that. was even able to make the short rocky/rooty climb at back of Mulligan w/o falling off pedals or bike. But, in the end, didn't really like how they felt, so I went back to my trusty 1998 SPDs. Been meaning to move the flats to the gravel bike, but haven't gotten to it yet.
  5. didn't they only ever do 1 with Daniel Craig? Don't recall there being more. The original WAS much better. and they had all 3 movies. same with Let the Right One In. Fantastic movie (and book) English remake was ok, but nowhere as good as the original.
  6. I did it the easy way: packaged andouille sausage, a rotisserie chicken from the hot rack, and frozen, peeled shrimp. Fresh veggies, though, and handmade roux. Used canola oil for the roux, but now want to try with butter and then again with bacon fat. Smoked chicken sounds good, though I'd have to find it somewhere cooked, as I have neither tools nor skills to do it myself.
  7. Made gumbo, for the first time ever, a few weeks back. Didn't even know what "roux" was. Came out really nice. Definitely will be making it again soon, along with chili.
  8. Been listening to these girls since their first Enter Sandman cover went viral 7 years ago. And this is what they're doing now. SO good...
  9. This blew me away the first time I heard it. Got me looking into other nation/ethnicities "folk metal"
  10. Something a little too avant garde, for some. Clowns make fucking great music.
  11. Most won't likely care for the music, but bet there will be some that could identify with the fashion 😛 Since it's debut last year, there were 9 versions/covers made, from this, to rap, country, pop, and even viking folk metal version. They are all good. Eskimo Callboy-Hypa Hypa https://youtu.be/75Mw8r5gW8E
