    D:

    Yikes! How's the healing going?

    I got hit by a car in December (as a pedestrian). Luckily, all I ended up with was some pretty spectacular bruising and probably my yearly dose of radiation...
  2. FS: Mavic Avenge (Men's) US 8 road shoe, new in box

    Meant to switch my road bike to road-type pedals, which never happened, and these shoes are taking up space in my closet. Sizing: I haven't tried these on, but I wear the MTB sister line (also...

    Dropping in

    Hi! I'm back, kind of. I drop in to lurk from time to time, but I haven't been riding much.

    So, what have you all been up to while I've been gone? :D

    Aw, I'm glad she has a new home. I'm a little sad and happy for you at the same time, though, although I know why it was past time to let it go.

    I was definitely picky, and most of my dislikes were texture (except veggies--my parents used to boil the living daylights out of everything, so they were sad and limp AND tasted awful). I also...

    I'm about half-way. I passed my comprehensive exams in November, so that officially makes me a PhD candidate rather than just a grad student. :D

    Repairing insect-damaged wool?

    I think I have a carpet beetle problem. They've chewed on several things, but always repairable. This time they chomped on one of my Smartwool base layers, and go figure it was the one that wasn't...

    My laptop is about 5 years old, still going strong. I dread having to replace it because I love Windows 7.

    Digital camera? It's still good, but I rarely use it.

    Bike improvement weekend!

    So, BF was a very good BF this past weekend. The road bike and the CX bike have pretty much been neglected for a while (too hot to ride, and I am still not a morning person), so BF leveraged his...

    I really liked the CAAD10, so hopefully a hypothetical women's CAAD12 will have the same geometry. (And I hope it comes with a disc version!)

    Good job!

    Snacks and plenty of water/some kind of sports drink. Gatorade/Powerade will work in a pinch, but I find them too sweet and lacking in other electrolytes beyond sodium. After the ride,...

    I'd try one if I could find one in my size! (51cm CAAD10 (women's) is perfect. I'd need a 48 in the CAADX, since the 51 is a bit on the long side for me, I think.)

    White or reflective dots? You should be able to find reflective dots pretty easily, or as tape if you want to do stripes. (I know, reflective isn't cool.)

    I LOVE the women's CAAD10. Fits me out of the box, and much more comfy a ride than some carbon.
