Crazy Cat Lady

So my story starts off like anything innocent enough. I just entered college and ended a long-term relationship with my high school sweetheart. I made the mistake, while being barely 20 years old, of joining a dating website. I met a gentleman, who admitted right away that he was older than me. Okay, I was used to dating "older" guys (like 4 or 5 years older), but I didn't think much of it. He told me originally he was 28. We hit it off pretty well, exchanging e-mails and I agreed to meet him. I didn't have a car at the time, so he offered to pick me up. He told me he would take me to dinner and we could pick up a movie at Blockbuster and retire to his place to hang out. BIG MISTAKE! First off, he rolls up in a pick-up truck with his BROTHER driving. When I get into the truck, I was smashed into the tiny "back seat" while he looked at me with a backwards glance trying to talk to me. Oh, and the truck stalled twice on the half hour drive because his brother had a DUI, in which he had to use a breathalyzer every so often or the car would turn off! Anyways, we end up pulling to his place ... his mom's place. With his brother. I walk in and there are CATS everywhere! Strays, actual house cats, feral cats, you name it, they were there. I have two cats myself but this was ridiculous. His mother was in the living room, smoking, telling me how nice of a butt I had in my jeans. He then proceeds to make us all spaghetti and I got to sit surrounded by cats and his family relentlessly complimenting me on every aspect of me. After we ate, we ended up watching the Matrix on USA and his brother drove us home. Oh, and did I mention that he admitted to actually being 32 years old, not 28?! A big no-no. Anyways, he asked to kiss me and I politely declined. He contacted me a few months later saying he got a car of his own, but still lived with his mom. I declined, but boy, when you are 32 and living with your mom, the last thing you do is have your DUI-convicted brother pick up someone you see as "wife-material." Wow!

Assuming you have a decent frame, wheels are the most effectivecarbon wheelsupgrade you can make, offering the greatest real-world gains in any chosen area, whether you want to achieve an aerodynamic advantage, climb faster, increase comfort or decrease weight.
If you’re aiming to race, commute, crack your first century or just get ysbike01 more from your riding, there’s sure to be something here to suit your needs.
From bespoke handbuilt beauties to big-name factory offerings,alloy road wheelsets they’ve all been put through their paces.
The majority have aerodynamic features, with a variety of rim depths, aero spokes and wind-cheating hubs, and alongside these generally narrow wheels are some wider rim designs,
claiming to offer increased stability, comfort and durability. Spoke patterns also vary, from minimal to artistic, with different levels of comfort and functionality.
How we tested
Before using them, pls checked all the wheels for trueness (side-to-side movement when spinning) and roundness.
A rating of ‘perfect’ indicates less than 0.25mm total error from exactly true or round. A wheel with less than 0.5mm error was rated ‘excellent’; less than 0.75mm error ‘good’ and less than 1.0mm ‘fair’.
You also rated the hubs for how much adjustment they needed when new,carbon wheeland measured the spoke tension before use.
‘Perfect’ indicates appropriatelyhigh tension that’s very even round the wheel; ‘good’ means high tension with some unevenness. A rating of ‘fair’ or less would have us reaching for the spoke key. After putting in the same distance riding each pair we took all the measurements again.
Flexible wheels can rob you of speed and cause the rim to rub on the brake blocks under power. To test forpcarbon wheels
acceleration you can carried out a series of ‘lamppost sprints’ – a test involving sprinting from one lamppost to another (the clue’s in the name!),
starting at 15mph, to see which set of wheels felt quickest and easiest to wind up to speed.
