    I read a comment from someone once where he said he practiced shallow breathing when the air was bad. I don't think there's any basis to this whatsoever, but you have to pretend you're doing...

    Yes, I'd add a Surly Tugnut to that before riding unless the axle were all the way forward in the dropout. In the one pic, it looks like it has been all the way forward before, judging by the paint...

    Just looked through old tickets, and I saw the Pixies in 1989. 1989! So yeah, 28 years ago. Old indeed.

    I also apparently saw the Jesus & Mary Chain once, but this is news to me.

    I can't draw a straight line with a ruler so I know better than to attempt Strava art, but apparently I can accidentally ride to create a stylized, disfigured Disco Stu.

    The title to my ride on Strava had been "Went to see a man about a horse," an old blues euphemism that I meant to be a play on words.
