get the Continental GP4000 in 25c. they actually are 27mm wide. very comfortable and still racy/light (only 20g heavier compared to 23c). Even the Conti 23c 4000 measure in at 24-25c.all the new tires are wider than the old school stuff. old school tires were freaking thin as hell (was the opposite and were often thinner). the new research shows the wider the tire the faster you go (power transfer increased).its all different now. you can find carbon comfort frames,...
The weight penalty is big in consumer models, but an extra 100-200g isn't much in the grand scheme of things.Wheel changes are actually quicker because it's just loosen the quick release and the wheel will fall out.My advice would be to also look at some cyclocross disc brake models, because they can go off road too. The major companies have tall head tube options on popular road bikes so you can have a really comfortable rising Position. If the rider is flexible the by...
most power pole saws are 10-12ft long. the hand pole saws go 15ft. sure you can use a ladder and climb up with the pole saw, but thats when things can get dangerous.the thing I'm most excited about are my brush cutters. back in the day adequate brush cutters were expensive and only for professionals, apparently you can get legit brush cutters even at home depot/lowes.
I had the weekend off and spent the whole time doing yard work, which included cutting down trees, tree limbs, raking, moving a large old fire pit (this was a lot more work than I expected each brick/stone was like 10lbs). The wife and I have been married almost 15 years and she's never seen me doing things like cutting down large trees/limbs, hell even cutting grass (we had landscapers in CT and before that always lived in cities), but when I was in high school I worked...
this one pissed me off because its a best friend who recently got divorced. when they were married they were both earning huge salaries but were frustratingly financially illiterate: high salaried, almost zero savings, renting a way too expensive townhouse in brooklyn. Then they got an ugly expensive divorce. Now they are both scrambling just to make ends meet.I get the call asking for me to co-sign an apartment lease and he pulls the "I'm not even asking to borrow...
I've had to say no to several family members and close friends to consign things this young year (mortgages, NYC apartment leases). It's the most awkward phone call ever. But when someone is newly divorced and just doing the quick math you know that they can barely cover payments it's too much of a risk. It's less riskier to just "lend" out lumps of money, but that's just giving away fucking money.
I fondly remember working in the Hotel Industry as my first job (front dest, and concierge) and the best fucking hours/shift ever was 7:00am to 3:00pm you have the whole day to do whatever you want when you get off.It was with the Kimpton group too so there were real perks (free dry cleaning), paid lunch hour, and other things*. Being barely over 20y/o I was so eager to do OT, but quickly learned that the taxes on the OT were so high that it was almost like working for...
there's a Mitch Headberg bit about this right?http://www.cc.com/video-clips/a963eb/comedy-central-presents-being-a-comedian-in-hollywoodMITCH HEDBERG: OK, YOU'RE A STAND-UP COMEDIANhttps://youtu.be/iAHiHJ2AhYE?t=193"When you're in Hollywood and you're a comedian, everybody wants you to do things besides comedy. They say, 'OK, you're a stand-up comedian -- can you act? Can you write? Write us a script?'... It's as though if I were a cook and I worked my ass off to become a...
hell even art supplies to make art is prohibitively expensive. the wife had this idea to paint her own art to put in our new house in Nashville and I told her we're better off going to some bulk art show because the paint/canvass/drop cloths/brushes/ ect will end up costing at least $500.I watched that first episode of Billions on Showtime and that first scene in a Queens Pizza place looked familiar... Rosa's Pizza in Maspeth Queens. I used to go there whenever I had to...
the easiest way to delineate the different generations is by availability/accessibility of Porn.I'm in my mid 30's and remember being excited for the fucking sports illustrated swimsuit issue to see hints of nipple at best. Porn was valuable commodity even up to the mid 90's.
