    • @kurtt74 No, next few weeks pretty busy travel wise, so at home for this week ahead. ,
    • Truth or Dare wheel in the middle of London Heathrow T5, in case of flight delay. Streaking likely frowned upon. ,
    • RT @cyclingweekly: Lawson Craddock’s Malteser trick is something you should definitely not try at home (video) ,
    • RT @runpacers: And now the Women's race is underway. In less than 2.5 hours we'll know who's representing the @TeamUSA at ,
    • @muZZkat Ping me via email as a reminder, I'll connect. ,

    • @TKMarx I haven't tried that yet (giving me ideas...). I doubt it would float (not a duck), but, it is waterproof (this ocean dipped 2x). ,
    • @muZZkat So far so good. Though, ultimately it's 'just shifting' and 'just works' (like Di2). Have you talked with the SRAM guys about int? ,
