How is one supposed to get straight home when this is along your commute? Especially when the Boca Loca burrito truck is there?

So, apropos of nothing for the last 74 or so miles, I've been hearing this frustrating to identify crank creak, but just couldn't identify it. Anyway, today the was the first day of bike commuting of the year. On the way home, half a mile in, lots of traffic, sitting at red, turns green, I stand up on the pedals, Fuck. The first picture happens. Thankfully I only had one foot clipped at the time. It's five fiddy and I'm 5 blocks away from the closest LBS that closes at 6. I start "sprinting" as best as a large gentleman in MTB clip shoes can. I get to Friedrichs on Lorain at 5:58 and they graciously get me on a stand. No 9-speed chains in stock, but they put a power link in. Took 10 minutes and $5. Excellent people. 10 of 10 would break down near again. Back riding, on the run to the shop, I notice my favorite brew pub has the Boca Loca Burrito truck out front. I stop in, get a Columbus Bodhi and a triple threat burrito. Then ride the rest of the way home, to have a drink with the silly girls in my back yard. 7 more months of this commuting season? Bring it on. Better than a minute in traffic.  Oh, btw, for some reason, that crank creak is gone.

I was planning to get a new chain for it, but the mechanic said that Power Link is just fine and I should ride that chain till a gauge says it's time.

Everyone knows the White House Correspondents Association dinner is broken. What started off decades ago as a stately formal celebration of the best of presidential reporting has morphed into a four-day orgy of everything people outside the Beltway hate about life inside the Beltway

Do any of you own a late model Ford Explorer with that Kick Under to open the trunk feature? Do you have a tow hitch installed for your bike rack? I'm hearing you can't get a tow hitch if you have that kick under "feature".

According to what I found online, the metal tow bar may not make a difference. It appears it may work whather there's a boat there or not. They also tried to falsely trigger it but got it to where it only triggers when intended.

I don't want it to happen for many many decades, but when #RichardRoundtree  (TV's John Shaft) dies, I hope it's by lightning strike. I want to read the headline Lightning Crashes, an Old Mutha dies
