Yeah, they're a bugger to remove. I had to pull both brake calipers in the front to get it off, and the rear belt, with about zero clearance for bolts due to the dual exhaust? That was a #$@%%^! to get off! (and I had to pull the rear caliper off as well).

Especially since I had to use "emergency" tools as I'd left my socket wrenches in my storage unit.

Same here. Swapped the 700x28 road tires for 700x38 gravel tires.

(Excuse the dirt. Was out riding today and haven't had a chance to clean the bike yet.)

Too many giant looking cameras IMHO. It just seems to me manufacturers including Apple are trying to convert their smartphones more into cameras. Maybe it's just me but I prefer a more low key look and simpler, discreet design. I'm saying this as a guy who has a phone with a single lens still but it works great.

Because they have to play to the "better" folks, who lets be honest - pay for all this crap. They have to have a "Better" phone than their peers. That phone has to have "Better" specs for them to brag about. Those specs better include a "Better" camera to brag to their peers about.

How else do they keep getting idiots (that don't have jobs that pay for them) to buy every new $1,000 phone that comes out, when we all know 99.9998% of them will only use them for selfies and social media and will not use 99.9998% of what the phone is capable of?

It doesn't require 4 giant camera lenses to do that though. Google has mastered the art of AI with their single lens (Pixel 3).

I ride my exercise bike in front of a TV that I have one of my PCs connected to, sometimes I watch some videos or surf the web and using a regular mouse is a royal PITA, so I'm going to give this a shot, free returns if I don't like it:

Have you ever tried Fulgaz while you're riding? Maybe not as entertaining as a movie, but it does give you some nice scenery as if you were really riding. You can watch the videos free if you don't need them to be interactive with your bike. Just click on one and set it to full screen.

Pretty.

Now play something for us.

You could, you know. Have someone record you playing then post it on YouTube.

I'm sure you play good.

Thanks! 2 reasons for no YouTube. 1) My music is not YouTube ready yet. 2) My mug will never be YouTube ready!

You don't have to show yourself (I'm sure it would be okay, though).

Not trying to pressure you. Do it if you want, or not. We love you either way, HubbaBubba.

When the time is right, I will. Until 6 weeks ago I had not touched a guitar for 3+ decades. Got some practicing to do first!

Yep. Completely understand.

I played the trumpet when I was a kid. Was pretty good, too.

Do not have the cajones to pick one up and try it again, so my hat's off to you.

Life is too short, my friend. Rent one for a month and see if it is something you want to get back into? After the Tommie's trip, we can jam!

5 speed for my E9. It needs a clean up but seems to be in good shape.
