Hell, Mrs. LAJ has stuff that will scald the whole inside of your body. If one isn't careful, some of the outsides, as well.


I still have the bag 1/2 full because I am scared of the Bhut Jolokias.  :/

Not this stuff. It's wicked good. I should send you some.

Don't be afraid, fudgy. It's good, healthy, organic stuff.

I love peppers and spice, but eating an enitre bhut jolokia because I thought it just a hotter-than-usual habenero gave me "a bad time".

Just be careful opening the envelope.  The baggie inside had opened and when I opened the envelope, some pepper dust flew into the air.  I sneezed for a half hour straight.   :lol:

Always try to poop before your ride. It's no fun to have that 'I gotta go' feeling while you're so far from home, but on the plus side it makes you ride harder!

Thought about this tip this morning and I'm sure the geeks already know about it or use it regularly. Inside your garmin (or any usb device you use Camera, Jumpdrive, ect) place a small file called:
Quote
If found read this
or something along the lines. Inside feel free to put your name and an email address or cell phone number. If you lose it during a race, group ride, ect someone can plug it in and hopefully get it back to you. Be sure to put it in the first folder that pops up when plugged in so it can be seen. If your stuff gets stolen hopefully the person who stole it isn't smart enough to realize this, which is highly possible. Feel free to hide files on your devices as well stating who the owner is.

Good tip K!


Since I'm in the thread...for those who repair/rebuild older bikes with lots of loose bearings and stuff, a syringe works great for precise grease application. Easier than big grease gun or loose tub of grease. Pack the syringe (an old EPO syringe would probably suffice - but I use a larger one - 10ml or so), and you're set.


Also, old bar tape makes good chainstay protection for your MTB.

When you wrap your bars stick a piece of paper with your name, address, and phone number inside the bars, in case you ever need to prove ownership of the bike.

if I did that I would put clear plastic tape around the sign first.

Also nice for spreading tubular glue, although 30 cc is probably better for that.
