    Tech said she didn't see anything abnormal (following all her disclaimers and my assurances I wouldn't quote her). She did say in her 30 years of doing it, she had never seen a heart located so low and in the location of mine. No clue what that means, she just really had to work to get the right views because everything was "different". She said could be 5 days before I hear anything official.

    I think she liked me because I was the only person under 75 years old and under 300 lbs there today. I was also probably the only one who insisted on complete nudity despite her assurances it was 100% not necessary or preferred.

  • Side Project - Kid's Bike

    So I dug out my old bike frame from when I was a kid and built it up with my 7 year old just like my grandfather and I did when I was 7 and he found this frame in a junk yard. I doubt I was much more "help" to my grandfather than my son was to me, however he had fun putting on gloves and trying to use a hammer for each and every task. Rather than a rattle can job like we did over 30 years ago, I went ahead and had it blasted and powder coated to hopefully help it last for the next generation. I also replaced a lot of parts which probably had my grandfather rolling over in his grave since the severely rusted ones still worked or could have been salvaged. I did salvage some items, but overall it came out much nicer than it ever was when I had it. I believe the frame is 70's era huffy and was intended as a banana seat bike, however I never realized that until I was searching for a replacement seat post for this build. I kept it a standard seat since that is how I always rode it so had to do some modifications to the seat post to make it work.

    Came out pretty cool and my son loves riding it so far. I think it weighs about 300lbs!

  • So Rapp is being sued by Dimond?

    Welcome at @Nate_Mach some people here are mean and some are unfunny, but we haven't had anybody doing both simultaneously since Ben retired.

  • Sportsmanship Thread - Not Everyone is Cheating (all the time)

    Case in point, everyone's (or just my) favorite triathlete.



    If you don't have 2 minutes to watch the entire thing, Currie dropped his chain at Challenge Wanaka. Gomez pulled up to give him a push to try to ride it back on. When it didn't work, Gomez held up down the road for him to pull over, get his chain back on and catch up. Gomez went on to beat Currie by about 17 seconds.

  • Ben Hobbs - is that really you?

    Fearless leader? I didn't say @AaronWebstey.

  • How do you pay little or no bike fee on United

    @Tad_Machrowicz Make sure you have a mustache and wink when you say it's a sex swing. That either ends the conversation (and your bike will fly for free) or it starts a very awkward exchange. Either way we all win when you post about your experience.

  • Kona Doping

    @Jennifer Post Not sure I am "hoping" for it to be anyone of significance. That won't be good for anyone.
    I disagree. I think triathlon (at least long course) is dirty to its core. Athletes, WTC, and sponsors. I think the only hope of getting it clean is if the big stars get caught.

    I'm hoping more that your assumptions are wrong rather than hoping the entire declining sport gets taken down. Now if you will excuse me, my head is not used to being out of the sand for long periods of time.

    @Eric Lagerstrom - It will be the second triathlon film - you are forgetting the instant classic Run to Me.
