    Clipless flat shoes that do everything?

    Weird. Kestrel BOA feel comfy to me. Theyíre like a stiff XC shoe disguised as a normal shoe. Really stiff sole and can be made tight enough to eliminate heel movement, but much better for HAB than...

    Not sure if itís a thing you can buy, but itís easy to reduce stock. I mostly use homemade stock thatís super concentrated because it takes up way less space and is easier to work with.

    Start with concentrated stock and itís nearly indistinguishable. I am in a rush and am happy to take shortcuts if the end result is basically the same.

    Turkey Buzzard invasion. Speaking of Ravens, thereís a group of them that terrorize any Buzzard that gets within range of my back yard. Theyíre relentless. Hmm, supposed to be a GIF.

    I'll take a 5mm greater chance of hitting my pedals over a 5mm decrease in leverage. Every time I try 170mm cranks I don't like them. I gave it a good 2 months. I'm going back to 175mm.
