    Hey-oh, monkeys! Speaking of which, another bike/run workout planned after work. Speaking of which, I need new tires for my road bike. Speaking if which, the road bike could use an LBS tune-up.

    I just had a department staff meeting and managed to get through it without the staff complaining about each other non-stop.

    why do you think i'm stockpiling? :busted:

    but to be fair, all we'll need is one new tire to send to a contract rubber manufacturer in china and tell them to copy it.

    When 26ers are outlawed, only outlaws will ride 26. Is there a mountain bike version of the NRA?

    but in all honesty, if high end 26" is killed off by the big companies, contract manufacturers in china & taiwan will do business with anyone. and i mean anyone

    why reinvent the wheel, er tire, when we can get more minion clones than we'll know what to do with? those overseas have no morals when it comes to making knockoffs

    You should just call the 26er tires vintage and market them to the hipsters. You'll make millions.

    Hi all. Drove from Kansas City to Denver today. I-70 is incredibly boring and 75 mph (the limit and my actual speed) kills mileage. The only high points were not falling asleep and two huge wind farms, one near Vesper, KS and the other about 100 mi east of Denver.
