That's right I forgot that you did the bike shop gig.   We need another bike shop around here, the last one seemed to be doing good....but for some reason they gave it up.  I could enjoy doing that if there was any money in it.

The do well in a big metro area like St Louis.  I met my wife there.  I like what I do now but nothing beats a kid picking up his new bike.  In fact the whole deal was great.  Who isn’t happy in the bike shop?

Those weight conscious guys would drive me crazy.  Fussing over 1/4oz. Lighter gearsets, or being indecisive about a seat post because it weighs 6 grams more than his last one.    

There are actually guys that want the decals and valve stem caps removed to reduce weight.  You aren't one of those guys are ya?

I pump a BEAST 29er Trek Marlin. That sucker weighs as much as a refrigerator 😂

Nope, family bike shop.  We didn’t cater to that crowd.  You know everything from wagons, skateboards, skates and bikes.  Late 70’s and 80’s.  Center pull brakes just came out.  We used to lace wheels until the Chinese invasion of the 80’s.  I went to Chicago for Schwinn  school around 82.  It was a great environment.

I ride a Townie electra 7d.  It’s a tank.  I also have nylon tire liners.  I’d rather peddle the weight than change a tube.  I also like to ride on the busiest part of the trail. Ride into old town St Charles and back.  People walking and walking dogs.  On the river front.  Great vibe.

Oh to live on a prairie 🤗 

30 miles around HERE would be a bit much.   These hills have no mercy and are twice as far up them than they are down them......both ways.

I use to ride from Springfield to Willard but I was much younger.

Just riding from here to Lebanon wouldn’t be bad but might be dangerous.
