When UPS says "out for delivery" and it's 8:30PM, it doesn't matter if the box on the truck is basically full of something I already have and won't be using for a month or so. My heart still hurts a little.
But she did show up at 8:34PM, so okay.
Speaking of which, I placed this order the day before I got the invite to the Maxxis Appalachian Summit. In case the irony is lost on you, I stuck with what I know because I was afraid to try something new. Now I'm gonna have the opportunity to try all kinds of tires... right after I locked myself in for the "season." I didn't quite max out my tire credit with Maxxis, so mebbe if they don't charge me for any damages at Mulberry Gap, I might get something I end up liking molar betterer.
I got out of bed on early Tuesday... because heat and dog staring at me with no eyes and sleeping against a wall because we're still not in our bedroom that was crushed by the tree and I got sick of just staring at the wall I'd hit my head against multiple times in the past so many hours. With time on my hands and a blog already written, I went about to working on the two upside down bikes sitting in the room. I couldn't mount fresh tires without waking up the house, so I rebuilt a bottom bracket, did a gear swap... stared at the pegboard... and fell into a rabbit hole.
I don't even know what some of these things are. I mean, I have guesses based on their inner or outer diameter, but just guesses. I have a vast supply of thin plastic washers that look like they have a 30mm ID. Where did they come from?
Anyways, end game is to get them sorted so the next time I need "this," I'm not sorting through stacks of "that" and "the other." Not throwing anything away tho. Who knows when I might need fifteen 1mm thick 30mm ID washers or a super lightweight Cane Creek AER headset upper or a 34.9 Amp Research QR seat collar?
Srsly, who knows? Please advise.
