The latest dog did not bark at all just ran after me quietly. It got real close before I saw it. I speed up and outrun them. Usually the dogs bark at you. Not this one!

I'll have to carry my Scottish thorn stick cane and start whacking the dogs if they get to close, impaling or whacking them upside their heads!

Perhaps this particular dog was just along for the ride. When I was a kid, I used to take a long ride completely around Lake Hopatcong... once a year. Well... one year, this big, goofy, Irish Setter took off after me. He was very friendly and amiable... followed me all around the like. I distance of over 30 miles.

When we came back around and were heading toward home, he spotted his yard, gave me a short "woof" and headed for home.

It was quite funny... and interesting to have had him along for the ride.

As anyone who owns won knows, them Setters can run like FOREVER!

Cheers!

I love dogs, don't get me wrong. I am just worried what some nasty one might do to me. It would be self defense and only as a last resort.

Absolutely. I love dogs as well... that's why I have three. Thing is.... not all dogs love me... or even if they did, they may not like the whole man-atop-bicycle thing.... hence, yes, best to be on one's guard.

Cheers!

The stick is light enough to carry. The only weapon you can carry legally. Works on four and two legged creatures equally well.

It's another thing I get asked to sell. It has sharp nubs up and down it and if somebody grabs it to try to take it from you, you pull it back and it hurts the flesh on their hands. Pepper spray also. My Pal Francis showed me his and would not sell it so I searched and went mad searching until I found my own. He demonstrated how to use it and scared me good! If somebody tries to take the bike from underneath me, they are going to get warned and then whacked, and whacked good!

I have a 1967 Raleigh DL-1 woman's bike, I need rod brakes and the handlebar setup, does anyone have them for sale? Or know where I can buy them?

yellowjersey probably has what you're looking for... IF they don't have it here, that is.

I believe Vin and the gang still stock and sell rod brake stuff? Don't know about handlebars though.

Hope that helps!

Later!

Before I left, I stashed my D.L.1. with a pal for safekeeping. Otherwise she'd have parted out that bike too. But you'd have had your handlebars........

First question she asked when I called to let her know I had left was: "Where are your bikes? "

AGE / VALUE:    32, 36 & 40h Alloy 26 x 1-3/8" rims available posted by: Mark Stonich on 12/5/2007 at 2:02:47 PM
Jim Thill, of Hiawatha Cyclery tells me that Sun CR-18 590 rims are once again available!

32, 36 & 40 hole are all in stock at QBP in both matte silver and polished.

QBP is a "Wholesale Only" business, but almost all local bike shops order from them.

They don't have a lot of the polished 32s and 40s on hand, so you might want to hurry down to your LBS.

They do have plenty of the polished 36s and all drillings of the matte finished ones on hand.
