I then starting giving him crap... 4.7... I could beat that and he laughed so I said... Yeah... Let's race right now.

    So we did... My 48 year old body and his collegiate athlete body... Home to 1st... Anyway... I hung with him for half way down the line... We were right in stride... and then my legs just gave out and down I went. It was weird... It was like my legs turned into empty air mid stride and down I went. They Just quit and I knew it when it happened that I was going to plunge to the turf.

    I've ran a little a bit lately but I've never really tried to go full speed... My Legs just said to me... Nope... I'm not going to let you do that... At your age.
    Bilateral leg weakness is a bitch isn't it?

    That's what I'm thinking. I neglected to include that I expect to use the bike for very mixed purposes including as much pavement as I can find off of highways - but with occasional dirt trail use, and a touring bike on dirt would be much stupider than a mountain bike on pavement.

    I'm no expert, but I'd recommend wheels.

    You heard correctly.

    Off Road Biking in the Lake Tahoe area. You are going to need cougar repellent.

    Oh and Some Mountain Lion Repellent as well.

    I used to ride mine about 10 miles to work every day, and it sure felt like I was flying. My wife has a hybrid, with the deep tread on the outside of the tires. She does just fine off road with that as well.

    I'd still go with RB's suggestion of getting something with more than one wheel.

    Shoot. Casey Fiend messes up Gardy's strategy of a 3 run bomb by Parms in the bottom of the 8th and a save by Perkins. Now all three guys have to reach base in front of Parms.

    Doesn't the power company suffer brownouts when everybody is trying to do this all at the same time?

    Not a frequent worry. The bears eat them all.

    Don't worry, those are a type of bike. I don't know if your's is one, but that type​ of bike certainly exists.

    Carrying a spare does sound prudent.
