    the first real thing i've done at my new job was to ask the operations guys if we could get a bike rack at our site, and he has one elsewhere he's eager to get rid of. success! (it's another sucky state to bike in, but w/e)That may be my favorite DQ of all time - nerdo

    yeah, a couple years ago I worked at a big giant pharma company that just built brand new buildings in Cambridge and they had a sweet locker room with like 80 lockers and 4 showers AND a dry room and i miss it so much

    at least now I can shower at the CAC gym in one kendall which sucks for multiple reasons but it's still awesome to have a shower.DFL and DTF :D:D:D:D

    did a summer at discover when i was in law school, and their organized internship program is for undergrad computer people and comes with housing (that includes a gym). i was in the legal department, had to get my own housing, and wasn't (because other interns had their own gym) allowed to use the staff one to shower, that i hear was the most luxurious posh thing ever. eventually found a janitor shower without even a shelf/ledge in it to put stuff on in the basement =/That may be my favorite DQ of all time - nerdo

    for discover it was 24 miles each way (once i got to my desk, my first hour of 'work' was just snack time)

    this'll be 5 1/2, and i mean the next thing i do half the time will be feeding goats, so it's not like i need to be fancy now, but a shower'd be cool to go take longer rides first, and like...lunch showers and mid afternoon showers, and just...i smell like goat and chicken poop foreverThat may be my favorite DQ of all time - nerdo

    holy moly 24 miles! Five and a half seems nice, mine is only ~2 and feels too short- except when I'm running late for child pickup. But even 2 miles is enough to make me gross when it's hot out :/DFL and DTF :D:D:D:D

    i didn't know anyone around really, so my life for the summer was just ride and work and sleep, and it was...good, but only with the knowledge that it was 10 weeks and done

    (also, yeah, looking at my bike is enough to make me gross when it's hot out =()That may be my favorite DQ of all time - nerdo

    i'm going to assume that that's just magically levitating, not jammed into the edge...

    TIL i made the good decision to take my bike with an increasingly creaky bb to Ace rather than trying to do it myself. Turns out it was hosed, so in like 30min or so I was out of there with a new bb instead of who knows how many hours in my basement like, "Okay it's still kinda creaky but I can totally get this running smooth again."DFL and DTF :D:D:D:D

    Good! When bbs start to go replacing them is all you can really do."life is hard, cats are soft." - surprisefries

    Yeah, plus even decent bbs are not very expensive. At first I thought it was connected to the issue with my crank falling off, but the guy played with it for 10 seconds and said "yeaah....."DFL and DTF :D:D:D:D

    I've been putting off replacing the wheel bearings in my favorite sw33t fixie for like a year (it's been hanging about that long) and I finally fucking did it and it's fun af holy shit.

    Pro tip: VO track hubs use a phil wood bearing size, so you can ride on butter 4 cheap."life is hard, cats are soft." - surprisefries
