Very nice!managed not to die in the first cyclocross race of the season yesterday.
Placed second-to-last in Masters 50+ Cat 1-4 (I'm a 4). I'm calling it a win since getting back in shape after my June bike accident has not been easy.
oh, and they told me I am qualified for Masters 60+ now, so that is what I'll be racing from now on.
I've always loved the early Darts and Valiants.Got the old girl moving again today. New clutch, a lot of new clutch linkage, torque shaft, ball studs and a lot more replaced within the last 200 miles. Been up on stands in the garage for 16 months or so. Arthritis and hands made a 1,-2 day job spread over 3 weekends.

This car has hauled more bikes to the mountain, downtown, and many other places than my truck has. She's well known in bike life here.

I got fixed years ago 1 year later were taking a walk by Tim Hortons she said wanted a honey glazed doughnut ...groan few months later we had rhyes...shaved and took a needle for nothing..I had a visible bulge in my bellybutton, but no discomfort. Then, one day, playing with Lil Thundrrr, I took a punch to the gut. As I lay on the floor, trying to breathe through the pain, I thought to myself, "if I can get beat up by a two year old, there might be a problem here"
Got the gut done and got fixed at the same time, one in the guts, one in the nuts
ha ha ha , all the tricks of a trade long lost!You can substitute plaster or Portland cement or that fake chocolate stuff Cosby used to sell. Any liquid that will harden.
