  1. WD-40... https://www.thatsfarming.com/news/farm-hacks-wd-40
  2. Just saw this on someone's FB feed... Just a hoggish (in a good way) confidence inspiring deal-with-anything look...
  3. And on the matter of bar end caps... These can be useful... And I found other companies that make similar ones that give different length extensions... I'll see if I can find the links to them.
  4. I agree with you about the plastic end caps... But I was referring to the grips that come with plastic ends. Looking at Ergon's website, it seems that they no longer make grips with plastic ends (not end caps), as all the photos show metal ends. The grips with the plastic ends would not last long as the screw fittings would come loose over time. In the photos below the plastic end grips looked like the grip with the black end.
  5. When I first started riding again back in '09 I was experiencing numbness. Changed to Ergon GP (not sure if Tour or MTB) and it pretty much stopped. I also started experimenting with different handlebars and found that some rise and backsweep also helped (versus straight flat bars). My wife uses them too... I use the cork, she uses the rubber. Be careful not to buy the grips with the plastic ends, get the grips metal ends. And I see that Ergon now has grips specifically for bars with backsweep.
  6. So there is no path there anymore, just the culvert... Or are you saying if people miss the path? I seem to remember on of the crossings (trail/street) one having a little ledge, but not a culvert without an easy way across it.
  7. "...judicious arrival of traffic..."... Queens English no less.
  8. Seems like China got Hunter... https://www.businessinsider.com/hunter-biden-china-business-connections-everything-we-know-2019-10
  9. Seems that Biden's son, Hunter, thinks it better to resign his board positions... Like doing so will help daddy's presidential hope. This article tells us just how convoluted things are in the US political environment... Which of course, isn't news. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/hunter-biden-says-he-will-resign-from-chinese-company-board-and-wont-take-foreign-work-if-his-father-is-president/2019/10/13/fa79ec64-ec30-11e9-bafb-da248f8d5734_story.html
  10. Someone mentioned Hobbs State Park in a thread about Bentonville, so I Googled it and clicked on a link that brought me to arkansasstatepark.com, where I saw one of the best marketing videos on trail building for the community that I've seen. As I watched it I thought of this thread. https://www.arkansasstateparks.com/trails
  11. Absolutely no doubt about more climbing. And it increases when you venture to some of the trails outside of BV.
  12. Don't worry... Be happy! :-)
  13. Here's one man's view... https://www.nytimes.com/2019/10/09/opinion/china-houston-rockets.html?fbclid=IwAR3hLtsb88H_y37Hy9a0Kq3SWhsejViYVbvU1iIVqaQmAIfleg9l80nP2RQ
  14. First thing I thought when I saw the riding on the finished feature was clipless would have not been pretty.

  16. And Biden joins the fray... "He's shooting holes in the Constitution," Biden said. "And we cannot let him get away with it." https://www.cnn.com/2019/10/09/politics/joe-biden-trump-impeached/index.html
  17. Watched Hillary's interview on PBS yesterday and I thought she spoke very well — except for a kind of under her breath comment about beating Trump again if she ran for president next year. But that was just a little, yet very revealing, slip. That slip aside... She's a smart, well spoken cookie... Devious for sure. As well as conniving, self serving, dishonest. You get the drift. Here's an excerpt from the interview... It's on Biden and his son. I thought she kind of subtly threw him under the bus, in her typical semi-veiled way. I'm guessing she doesn't like Biden either.
  18. $125... Off craigslist. $100 was for this website's members.
  19. Wow... That's a lot of people. That kind of turnout would be great for trail maintenance days too.
