    I've been lucky that I've had a great (most of the time) job for 25 years. But I am tired. And so I'll be retiring next week and heading off to Norway for a short trip! I'm not quite 50. I plan to...

    I haven't tried it yet, but I recently heard about cinnamon schnapps. I was considering trying it in tea or hot chocolate. The coworker who told me about it overindulged in straight shots, so he...

    Congratulations! And I'm curious to know what bike you're buying.

    The last option was "more than 20 times". I guess that means "per month" and would fill the gap between "daily" and "1-5 times per month". It was down at the bottom and I almost missed it.

    I'm...

    disc brakes

    I've been perusing the web, looking at what's new for 2015. It seems like there are more and more bikes with disc brakes. Do we really need them? It seems like I've been doing fine without them and...
  8. Is this feasible, or maybe just a dumb idea?

    I have an old Trek 720 Multitrack from 1990 or so. It's basically a steel mixte. It was off the road and on a trainer for a few years. Last year I took it to the LBS and he put some new, but basic,...

    I'm sure I'll give the Dolce another season before I buy yet another road bike. I need to get an all-around street bike since my Specialized Sirrus was stolen over the summer. I will most likely have...

    I just want to wish you luck - I'm thinking of the same. There's a shop near me that has the 2014 Ruby Sport in my size, greatly discounted. Although there are other colors I prefer on the bike, I...

    Not a problem - I didn't take any offense. What he meant was given my proportions, I could fit a men's bike, if there was one small enough.

    Anyway, I'm very comfortable in the cockpit. My lower...

    I think so. I started to suspect it when one of the fitters said, "Wow, you have short femurs!" ;) But I don't think it's dramatic. My KOP alignment is good now. No knee problems. I just find the...

    I'm not sure if the part I bolded was directed at me, but I have changed out the stems and the handlebars on two of my bikes already this summer. And I don't "freak out". As a matter of fact, I...

    I was afraid to open the link, thinking I might come across my cousin. It's not him - I don't think he wears an orange tutu ;) Thanks for sharing.
  15. Thank you for typing out most of my experiences!...

    Thank you for typing out most of my experiences! I'm 5'0", long torso, short limbs. I bought a Specialized Dolce last year that fits reasonably well. But this year I tried a petite Felt that seemed...

    I don't think we have sheep around here, but I admit I've "laaaaaaambed" when I do see them.
    I'm an introvert. It's sometimes easier to talk to animals than humans ;)

    I don't usually scream when I see a cow. I tend say, "hi cows!" and moo at them :D

    I already test rode the Coda. The dealer is about 2 hours away and I e-mailed him to say I'll be in town next month, and I want a Coda. Then I started wondering about the Allegro... I should stick...

    Makes perfect sense. The Terry bike I mentioned in my PM to you came with a straight bar. I had to change it out for something with a "sweep". The straight bar just had me in an awkward and...

    Jamis Coda and Allegro

    Are these bikes the same, just one in steel and one in aluminum? The geometries look the same, and aside from the component combinations, I'm just wondering what other differences there may be, and...

    I was imagining it with blue bar tape. Unfortunately, the white is no longer available. The 2015 is mint green.

    I'm glad you mentioned the looks. I've been trying to get beyond that. But I can't...

    I'm 5'0", wear a long bathing suit, and have a short inseam. None of the local shops sell Specialized anymore. The man who sold me the Dolce a couple of years ago had all good things to say about it....

    Yes, I am one of those ;) I have the 48 cm Dolce now and while the "lower body" fits well (standover, pedal alignment), I'm too stretched out. I was able to ride a 44 cm a few weeks ago and...
  25. Why would they do this? The Dolce geometry has changed.

    I've been thinking about (maybe) getting a new Specialized Dolce, so yesterday I visited the Specialized site and was happy to see the 2015 models are posted. New colors, graphics ... and geometry....
