i grew up sleeping on a couch regularly and i prefer it in a lot of ways. but yeah, my bedroom is often littered with kids when/if i eventually go to bed.

My 5 year old son calls me his room mate and wants to get my name made up to go under his on the wall. He speaks fondly about the two of us sharing a room for the rest of our lives.
Dude that is so sweet!
What a bond!
I’ve been bonding with my baby girl so much. We have a deep connection.

Also had a cruise in the parking lot on a Druid with the Sram axs stuff and it was definitely nice.

Druid felt very agile for and comfortable for the short ride in the lot.


A couple of the We Are One boys are on Druids. D. Adams was saying it is the nicest bike he has ever owned. They look pretty awesome.

My wife and I decided when the kids were young they were not sleeping in our bed ever. If they were sick, sad whatever we went to their rooms.
I'm a really light sleeper, any noise and I wake up.

Don’t mistake actual sleeping in another room as a problem. It’s just for better sleep for all in the house. In my case we still start the evening in the same room in the same bed. T.V., talking and other things. Wink
However when it time to sleep it all comes down to my snore level. If to loud off to the spare room I go. It’s better than constant shots to the ribs to quite down. Lol

So am I totally out of touch with bike shops these days or what? I took my rear wheel in the other day and was told it would take three weeks to rebuild it. Is this shit normal where you guys are?

Ha! Just don’t let too many men know your wife is sleeping alone... especially with “magnum” in their name!

Some shops it is. I usually find another shop once that happens.

Of course if don’t have another option if you where to drop it off with a 6pack it might happen quicker.

I really like hsp designs, just wish they didn't require a funky idler pulley to make it all work right.

I went to another shop and it’ll be done in a week. I get that they’re busy. Shit happens. But I’ve spent a grand at that shop plus sent two people there to buy new bikes and also dropped off a 24 of beer in the last couple months. I was hoping for a little better than three weeks for a wheel build. But...I guess when you’re not a bro you just wait. That just convinced me to learn how to build my own wheels.

Super busy times for shops right now. Wait for some services can be almost a week as people always wait until the last minute to get there DH rig ready for the park. That said Vernon has three good shops covering a city of this size. Probably longer wait times in larger cities unless the shop numbers are double what we have here.
There’s been three stands going full tilt at Skyride for about 3 weeks now. Same every time I walk in.
