I installed one of these on a 1976 Peugeot UX-10. It was a seriously good bottom bracket that felt on par with the Shimano UN-55. I have since used other VO BB's on other bikes and continue to be very impressed with their quality, especially when cost is considered.

Why do web designers implement a password field wherein text cannot be pasted? Is this some "oooh, we're being really slick with the JS" thing? I have run across this a few times and this design choice makes no sense to me. Please, someone explain the (il)logic.

Oh, you mean the people who use the same password for everything and always fall for the phishing attempt during the annual social engineering audit?

We're selling our Bilenky Viewpoint, for anyone interested in a custom semi-recumbent tandem. Like new condition. Our needs have changed from when we ordered it.
Bilenky semi-recumbent tandem for sale. Stoker sits in a recumbent position which allows both the captain and stoker to converse without yelling; both riders get a view. Completed in June 2014, less...

Caramelized onions in the slow cooker works seriously well. And makes a lot of caramelized onions with minimum effort. http://www.thekitchn.com/how-to-caramelize-onions-in-the-slow-cooker-cooking-lessons-from-the-kitchn-193413

Out for a leisure ride yesterday with +April Armstrong. That's a 48V 1000W 9Continents hub motor with a 20Ah LiFePO4 battery.

I used to scoff at electric bikes until a knee injury had me just looking at my bikes, instead of riding them. The motor has allowed me to return to bike commuting (15 miles each way), thereby getting my knee and supporting muscles into fighting shape. I don't have to worry about my knee getting angry while not yet halfway to work. The motor also gives the tandem serious hauling capacity. I have been able to pick up the weeks' groceries while hauling my monstrous work laptop, tools, packages, and my busted knee.

Plus, it's a lot of fun.

"I've always wanted to sail to the south seas, but I can't afford it."

What these men can't afford is not to go. They are enmeshed in the cancerous discipline of security. And in the worship of security we fling our lives beneath the wheels of routine - and before we know it our lives are gone. What does a man need - really need? A few pounds of food each day, heat and shelter, six feet to lie down in - and some form of working activity that will yield a sense of accomplishment. That's all - in the material sense, and we know it. But we are brainwashed by our economic system until we end up in a tomb beneath a pyramid of time payments, mortgages, preposterous gadgetry, playthings that divert our attention for the sheer idiocy of the charade. The years thunder by, The dreams of youth grow dim where they lie caked in dust on the shelves of patience. Before we know it, the tomb is sealed. Where, then, lies the answer? In choice. –Sterling Hayden (emphasis mine)

I think I secretly, subconsciously sell things on Craigslist so that I can go all Waldorf and Statler on the idiots that reply.

On a $400 bike with easily $1000 in components: "What is the length of the seat stays? What is the fork rake? What is the head tube angle? I really need to know these things... Please measure them for me!" "Does it have rack and fender braze-ons?" (The pictures clearly show there are no rack braze-ons.)

On a screaming deal on a lot of Transformers: "Can you deliver them to [east bumfuck]?" No. "Not ever?" No. "Are you sure there's no chance?" Hmm, let me double-check that for you. Still no.

How about the classic: "My 11 year old kid just started doing X and would love your state-of-the-art professional equipment, but I can't afford much, would you take [some pathetically low amount]?"

" Expect lots of questions and introspection in coming days about  whether Metro-North is safe enough, and none whatsoever about why the death toll associated with private automobile travel is socially acceptable and not considered a public health crisis.

This may be the Metro-North's deadliest crash ever, but as far as driving goes it's a typical Tuesday evening."
Yesterday I had to go to Brooklyn.  (I'm moonlighting in an artisanal mayo boutique.  If you've bought a $25 five ounce jar of our sriracha aioli lately, those little savory chunks are my boogers.)  No, I did not ride my bike...

Fellow cyclists, take your taillight into a dim or dark room and turn it on to your usual setting. Look in the general direction of your light, but FFS, don't look at it directly, because that would be stupid. Do your eyes hurt? Yeah? SO DO OURS! Stop it with the aft photon torpedoes! kthxbai

The hard numbers of the car vs bike calculator are quite surprising, not that most people that follow me need convincing. I swung quite wide with my numbers in both columns and came up with $73K over 20 years @ 5% annual growth. Numbers closer to reality are insane, to the tune of $300K over 20 years.

Don't call me at work. I will rain vitriol and dirty looks down upon you. Through the phone.
Fair pizza, great service. The pizza reminds me a Pizza Hut pan pizza, but made with much better ingredients. Crust could have been more crispy; it was a touch underdone.

Amazing food. The Cubano is the best I have had anywhere. Don't miss the fried plantains. Perfect combination of crispy and tender, and the aioli is good enough to eat with a spoon. So far, you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. The atmosphere is like a cafe with emphasis on the food. My only "complaint" is that I wished I lived closer.

Excellent delivery service, excellent phone ordering process, superlative crust on par with some of the best in Portland, which are on par with NYC pizza. Middling sauce, lame cheese, poor choice of topping ingredients... these detract from an otherwise amazing crust. Their crust is so damn good that it overrides the low-quality toppings. I will still order from them again and did I mention their service is top notch? Glad these guys are nearby but I wish they would upgrade their sauce and cheese. Decor above is actually an N/A since I ordered delivery, but I didn't want to ding them for something I didn't experience.
