man, i really am hungover today. derp. clearly i meant trail riding.
i hate you all.
I don't know what the story is but i had to tell her mother.
Honestly about the most valuable thing he left behind was a rack of bud light. I would have thought our entire childhood friendship was worth more than that, but clearly I was mistaken.
is her mom hot?
What else? And how'd it all work?
I just picked up some King coilovers with remote reservoirs and compression clickers. I'd love to do some triple bypasses at all 4 corners but unless the money tree blossoms I don't see that happening.
too late but i’ll still do it
I just ordered one of their jackets. I got some Pearl Izumi leg pull over thingies I wear with my regular shorts. Believe it or not unless it's below 30 they're too warm lol.
yea, i'm looking for something for when its below freezing. when its above freezing i just wear a pair of long bib tights under my shorts.
I really like sandwiches on dutch crunch bread but they should call it Dutch Motherfucking Shards of Glass. The roof of my mouth is still raw a day later.
I don't wear anything over my legs above like ~35-40.
The leg thingies I got are these: https://www.competitivecyclist.com/leg-warmers?p=brand:Pearl\+Izumi&nf=1
The Pro Softshell ones. Mega warm.
I rock these below about 45 degrees. Below 35 I add full length tights underneath them.
They're mainly for commuting, thus the color, but I've taken them on late season trail rides because honey badger dgaf.
Someone might mistake you for a streets worker haha
yea those pants are on the kill list.
once it gets below about 45-50 i switch to long tights under my shorts, depending on the wind
the coldest i generally ride in is about 0 degrees, just because it rarely gets colder than that around these parts.
Pearl Izumi AmFib tights for sub freezing.
I wear the non-padded ones over my normal bibs. Baggies over the top.
i've got some el cheapo nashbar ones which have been acceptable.
i need a proper pair of outer layer pants. i'm looking at the MT500 waterproof and the singletrack II trousers from endura. seems as if the main difference is the MT500 ones are waterproof whereas the the singletracks are merely water resistant.
Biggest thing I've noticed with the Endura stuff is some of it breathes a lot better than others.
i've got some windbreaker style pants from castelli and they don't breathe worth crap. it's like wearing a trash bag, but they are waterproof and i got them SUPER cheap. just not durable enough for trail riding, i only really use them when its super cold or riding road.
Just look at the breathability rating thing on the Endura site. They have their ratings for everything.
i guess what i'm trying to determine is whether or not i really need them to be waterproof (and if its worth an extra $75). if i'm riding in the rain i won't be mountain biking, just road so i'll use the castellis. snow sure, but then i'm not entirely sure fully waterproof is necessary.
there's a local shop that carries endura, i've messaged them via FB to see what they have in stock to check out.
FWIW, I don't bother with waterproof for my cold weather gear.
i've got answer sleestak gloves which i love, and aren't waterproof. the temp ranges they're for any water is frozen, so yea.
Haha yeah exactly. That's kinda my thoughts too.
Where you at? I'm in the Omaha area, our winters have been pretty mild lately. More wind and cold than snow.
I wear these: http://www.eddiebauer.com/product/m...32228?showProducts=&color=100&sizetype=&size=
Can usually get at least 40% off around the holidays, they are warm, water resistant, breathe well, and are slim enough not to get in the way. They are my go to pants for aerobic winter activities. No underlayer necessary for 20+ degrees, tights underneath can bring them down to 0ish degrees.
My god, man. This isn't Germany. There are RULES for chrissakes.
So he basically left you with about tree-fiddy?
Whoever would have thought that JK was a fashionista?
we do this thread every year. we should look it up.
fwiw, I wear fleecy bib pants (Roubaix thermal fleece) with shorts over top down to about 23°. I'll wear soft shell pants instead of the shorts when it's colder than that, but only if it's not wet. When pants get wet, they just get sloppy and annoying. If it's below freezing and wet*, they just become chunks of ice, especially around the ankles.
I only ever use hardshell pants for commuting when it's wet. I hate riding in hardshell pants. That said, I just picked these up about a month ago and have to admit they're pretty dang good (for commuting). They are flexible, light, tapered, waterproof, and not excessively expensive. I'm tempted to wear them riding next time conditions are messy. (which is probably tomorrow).
*as in, it's cold enough to freeze, but if puddles are deep enough and haven't frozen solid yet.
There is a brand new and shiny thread that isn't getting much attention as it is actually in a bike related forum
hitting the fudge tunnel.....who were a excellent band.
Most of my work day is now spent waiting for my network dummy-terminal to refresh and load my virtual desktop to the screen I see. This virtually sucks.
Let me guess - Citrix and non-flash storage arrays?
I need something more articulated for riding.
And those are almost as much as the more expensive endura options
Not 100% sure. I de believe there was Shitrix involved. They rolled out new WYSE terminals this week. IT claims the performance issue is network-specific issues, unrelated to the new terminals and related new desktop environment.
Also amused by the conversation where I asked if all my bookmarks and shortcuts will get lost in the new environment, the IT guys say no, then I need to rebuild my library of shortcuts.
Its all a façade. He's really been integrated into the matrix.
