    Congratulations, Crankin, on both pieces of news! I know we've talked about Cape Cod before, and although I don't think I want to live right on the Cape, I do often think of moving back to New...

    Well, I figured what was coming and still managed to break down in tears. My avatar kitty died in March and one of my two new adoptees climbed onto my lap and rubbed my teary face just as the video...

    I just received and assembled the two floor racks. I think they'll work out very well.

    Thanks everyone. I just ordered two floor racks. I should be able to use them as work stands, too, for simple, upright jobs.

    I'm not worried about the bikes in the garage. It's just off the...

    Takk, lph. I just found a floor rack that I think will work fine. I thought hanging them on the wall was a good idea until I realized I would need space along the wall in order to reach them.
  6. Where do your bikes live, and how do you store them?

    Mine are in the garage (except the one on the trainer). The one with a kickstand is just standing around, but the others are casually leaning on anything that will support them. I found some...
  7. FS: Brand new Pearl Izumi liner shorts, size small

    I just bought PI's Canyon shorts, knowing the liners probably wouldn't fit. I wear a small in loose shorts, but a medium in fitted shorts. I wanted just the outer shorts, anyway, so I'm selling the...

    I ended up returning the Revel (unused). I happened to stop in at an out-of-town bike shop that had a whole pile of Specialized helmets. It was a eureka moment. I learned what a good fitting helmet...

    Did you file charges, or at least make a formal complaint? The other stuff sounds like sheer incompetence, but this seems much more serious. Did your mother's bank refuse to release the info? I think...

    Congratulations! Adorable house - looks just like mine, without the dormers. Have fun painting!

    Way to make an impression with his new neighbors! What a shame, though, and I'm glad the cat was okay.

    I'm a novice gardener, trying to learn from my accomplished neighbors. Last fall I planted and transplanted a bunch of stuff. Now I'm looking at all this new growth and wondering what's what. So no...

    I went into a shop today and there on a rack was a bright blue and pink Crux. I thought, "Oh, there's Helene's bike!" It's really beautiful. I hope you enjoy many miles on it.

    I'm sitting here wearing my new Revel :cool: I usually run errands in the morning, but I was getting a little antsy this afternoon. So I went to one shop to try the Bell again. It was fine, but I...

    This one. It's pretty basic and boring, which is why I hesitated. The Bontrager was more colorful. I imagine you like something "racier" ;)

    Bontrager! Maybe. When I tried one on this morning I realized how much better a helmet can fit. There was also a Giro that felt good, too. I have one or two more stops to make.

    I'm starting to realize my head is oblong. And, apparently, big. The women's helmets are just too snug front to back. I feel too much pressure on my forehead. When I woke up this morning I pretty...

    My old helmet is a Bell. As I mentioned, no real thought went into that purchase. I was in a local shop a few days ago and tried on Giro, Garneau and Giant. The Garneau fit well, but I didn't like...

    Helmet shopping!

    When I bought my last helmet, I knew nothing, had no money, went through a catalog and found one on sale. It was probably the end of the season and the color was not a big seller. The helmet is kind...

    Specialized changed the geometry on the 2015 models. Is that where the confusion is? I started a thread about this a while ago. This is also why I'm looking at last year's closeouts.

    The bike actually comes with red bar tape and bottle cages, and has a white stripe. I might to go all black. Or maybe silver or gold, if it's not too "blingy". Or blue. I like blue.
