  1. I'm cheap, I'll admit it. But I do think Volvo is pricing themselves on the high side, even when taking current norms into account.
  2. Agreed, works well on that car. I did price out a OSD V90 R-Design yesterday. Even without some of the pricier add-ons like sound system, etc... I was at $61,600. Fairly certain that my current wagon will be my last Volvo wagon for a very long time.
  3. Been putting miles on the road bike again, but my heart's not into it. Tuesday/Thursday I ride with 3 other people at 5:30 am. Same route, every damn week. It gets beyond mind numbing but they're set on the routes and won't change them for the world. I'd rather spare an hour during the day to do hill repeats than ride the same roads every time. Getting a little tired of the roadie "holier than thou"mentality, so goal is to ride my Salsa more often this year.

  5. Lucky soul, I would not bother setting up any paint equipment if a neighbor had everything just 5 mins away. Can't say I miss the snow. Have fun with it though, go drifting!
  6. How long are you back in OH for Lucas ? Just the holidays ? Looks good Val. I would suggest starting small on the paint. I do some paint (I did panels on my 59 VW and then decided to have the whole thing painted in its original color locally) and yes prep is everything but a clean, large space with good ventilation is essential.
  7. I absolutely love your riding pics Cameron.
  8. He went all upscale on us and got a 2012 or 2013 XC90 Sport (V8 from Yamaha).
  9. That seat bag looks big enough to carry a laptop..... Digging the white walls, they work really well with the wheels and grey paint.
  10. I should have, you're right. Still on the hunt for the right FJ60 to replace the wagon.
  11. Not one in particular but racing season starts early in AZ. I will jump in a few MTB races this Fall to maintain fitness and will do another training block similar to my current one after Thanksgiving. Should get me ready for the early January road races. I may also head to SC and do some of the Hincapie races there. Main reason behind current training is that I was getting bored with some of the routes and rides so I thought I would increase intensity.
  12. Wow! What kind of phone are you using, out of curiosity ? Strava on the phone will cut corners, literally run a straight line through a corner. I've switched to a Garmin, it's an older model (705) and weighs almost as much as the bike itself but it is dead accurate. Garmins are cheap if you can pick one up used. And thanks for the follow on Strava, the next 5 weeks should have some choice words to describe my rides!
