I got some new glasses... FO FREE! I did some crap for an industry site a couple months ago, got free premium strava, and free Smith Forefront glasses. They're... large. I have had a bad habit of peering under my glasses whenever using a phone or some power tool, rather negating the safety aspect. These, though, I notice I'm doing that because they're larger than my M-Frames, and the lens technology REALLY cuts glad from the phone's screen.

I like these lenses.

They could have used hex bolts or Torx bolts and been fine. But when they use security Torx my brain immediately jumps to "challenge accepted"

#bikeshop Roulette is when you take a tube with a slow leak, hook a floor pump to it, put the tube behind you, and pump 10 strokes into it. Assuming it doesn't explode, the next person goes.

It's known as the Aarhus Model, a programme designed in Denmark's second city to dissuade young people from going on jihad. This is one man's story.

It's not an invalid interpretation; I can't argue with the legal basis. I just can't celebrate it, either, when it's clearly not what they meant and we'll likely fix as soon add they can.

Follow me into the crazy here.

Hobby Lobby doesn't want to pay for women to have reproductive rights. Takes a case to the SCOTUS and wins.
Result: The government will pay for your employee's reproductive rights if you don't want to because of your shitty religion.

SCOTUS decides, for the third time, that the ACA is the law of the land, and everyone will be involved in it.
Hobby Lobby elects to close their entire chain, rather than have someone other than them pay for their employee's reproductive rights.
 

Yet another positive outcome of the Affordable Care Act! Hobby Lobby is shutting down! #obamacare #hobbylobby #gopdramaqueens

They're not really closing. It's the same kind of conservative extreme reaction that papa John has to the minimum wage increase and obamacare.

Story

Is a jerk.
Introduction
I like to make stuff, to understand how things work, then to break things apart and make new things out of them.

Hobbies are like clothes to me; they wear out, and I get some new ones, except I never really throw the old hobbies away, so the analogy breaks down. Right now, I cycle pretty extensively. Ok, rather a lot.

Five things I like almost as much as riding a bike:
1: Looking at my bikes.
2: Talking about my bikes.
3. Reading websites about bikes.
4. Thinking about what bike i'm going to buy or build next.
5. Bacon.

Some things i've previously enjoyed as much as biking: SCA heavy combat, amateur radio, video games, firearms.

I'm attempting to learn the mandolin. I *love* music I have not heard before, particularly melodic metal or metal using unconventional instrumentation.

I am an Atheist, and will make posts regarding such, but I respect your right to believe in whatever you want.

If you hate homosexuals, feel free to never discuss such with me.

I'm pretty acerbic, and my sense of humor has been described as 'extreme', but I hope that doesn't stop you from reading the crap I post.

I improperly installed a crank set from a single speed kit, resulting in the left side arm being slowly destroyed. I called ALL the shops in Columbus, no one had a used crank arm in 165mm. One had a new Sugino Messenger arm, but at quite a steep price. Paradise Garage keeps Origin-8 crank arms in stock in all sizes just for things like this. I was able to properly install the new arm that weekend. It's been three weeks now, and my bike is still going strong.

Visited this place with my fiancee when she was in town. We both ordered from the local special menu, her a fruit and pork dish, me the steak. I ordered medium-rare and received well done. On bringing this to the waitresses attention, I received another steak, again well done. Not a single bit of pink was showing in either steak. I don't know how you get to be a chef in a place that sells $22 steaks but still can't cook one medium rare. The pork dish was good, but nothing I couldn't have cooked at home. I'll not be going here again.

GREAT in store selection and very courteous service. However, I will never special order another part. I had some tires on order for two months. First, I was told the tires were on their stock order, and that they would be in that Monday (three days). I ordered them, then called every other week. I was always told "they're not in yet, but they will be soon". One month in, I found out that the tires had never been ordered AT ALL! To compound that, they had the wrong size down for my name in the computer! At that point, I put half down, and the correct tires were ordered. Two MORE weeks, and I find that the tires STILL have not been ordered! The explanation was that the tires are now sold out nationwide. The tires were always in stock at several retailers online, for less money. Last thing I was told, was that they would definitely be in within the next two weeks, and that Columbus doesn't get snow in November. That deadline passed, still no tires, and NO CALL. I asked for and was refunded my money on Wednesday the 21st of November in the afternoon. In driving to Michigan, I got caught up in a traffic jam in Delaware. During that time, I ordered the tires from an online retailer. The local store could have, at any time, bought the tires at that same online retailer and sold them to me at 28.7% mark-up, free shipping. I received a shipping confirmation from the online retailer within an hour. Later on in the drive, around 7, the owner of Baer Wheels called and said he had finally ordered the tires and they were on the way. Apparently, apparently two months is the minimum time for parts orders.

I did not buy my bike at Eddy's, I purchased it over a decade ago in Arizona. I had previously replaced almost every part five years ago while living in Germany, so my ride is a real Frankenbike! I had a few issues and I was sick of trying to figure them out on my own. First, my derailleur always looked like it was sitting at an angle. They quickly showed me how the hanger was bent and fixed it on the spot. I also had a torn tooth on one of my chain rings. They ordered a new, larger set, and it came in a week later. The set would not fit although all printed materials said it should. They were able to find out my bike had a bottom bracket that was smaller than originally equipped and I needed a longer one. Once again, they fixed it while I waited, but it took a bit longer this time. Great service. Large dressing room with bench and mirror, too.
