    Cool! I think SRAM wireless would be the way to go... But yeah, I got the book Vintage Cycles: How to Find and Restore Old Cycles by Gianluca Zaghi , and it sounds like something that would be a fun project, (and time consuming!)

    I hope they know what they're doing! My co-worker is into that stuff and we see a looot of botched vintage builds, especially paint jobs"life is hard, cats are soft." - surprisefries

    i... don't really know that marty has much experience building bikes, but he is very much the type to do A LOT of research, and he's gonna work with a guy who was alive for at least part of the 30s and i think probably does have bike building experience, so hopefully together...That may be my favorite DQ of all time - nerdo

    I went to the Bikes Not Bombs warehouse sale in Dorchester yesterday, which I recommend going to if you like searching for stuff, and found a Zipp disc rear wheel. It was just in a random box that everyone else probably thought was recycling, and they took a hundo for it. Now I get to pretend I’m a TT specialist! I just hope it’s round, because it’s really just a piece of foam glued in between 2 carbon discs.

    I was actually considering doing this Mallorca bike trip: http://www.destinationcycling.com/index.php/product/cycle-sunny-mallorca/. A guy in my club has done it the past 7 years and loves it. If anyone’s interested HMU.

    13-18mph pace is actually a huge wide range. people that can do 13 can't necessarily average 18? (never mind the 18-23 group!)

    i think we're more into "yay fun bike ride with some challenges" vs "special training week" level =PThat may be my favorite DQ of all time - nerdo

    Yeah, I guess I’m mostly interested in it for fun, but also wouldn’t mind getting the miles in if it will help with sucking less at Killington, and whatnot. That schedule seems like a lot of miles when you add it up, so the goal would be to not get masochistic on myself. I can do that in Boston if I feel like it :)

    I sent someone money on Craigslist for a concert ticket knowing that I might not ever get the ticket (which I didn’t) and ended up getting my money back from PayPal. On the down side, I lost a little sleep over the matter, but now it’s good to know that the goods & services option on PayPal is pretty solid.

    continuing on the bagel subject (one of my main food groups), I just fuckin love a nice multigrain everything bagel with veggie spread. Buffalo didn't have that and a lot of cafes used that whipped cream cheese shit which is gross. The coffee and tea is so much better here too."life is hard, cats are soft." - surprisefries

    my favorite drink is pineapple juice with grenadine, with enough grenadine that if you smile your face aches from sweetness, so i'm not a good judge of "disgustingly sugary" =PThat may be my favorite DQ of all time - nerdo

    Nandy:I have never gotten anything but old fashioned, those aren't disgustingly sugary?

    probably, but they're my favorite trashy donut

    I love when people get DD boxes with old fashioneds in them because I'm often the only one that wants them.DFL and DTF :D:D:D:D

    maybe I'll try a trashy donut then. Too bad their coffee is so gross too. Whenever I think about going I'm like "eehhh but I could just go to a good cafe over there and pay about the same for something 10x better", but sometimes I like a good cringe listen to their in-house "radio station" advertisement loop. I feel so bad for anyone who works there"life is hard, cats are soft." - surprisefries
