Kind of meta-OT, but is it possible on HF to see how many posts of yours have been deleted or how many people have blocked you etc?

I'm just wondering because I clearly remember posting in some threads, but now I can't find those posts anywhere. And they were innocent ones also!

Started House of Cards last night. So good.

So much better than that crap Walking Dead show with Andrea's ugly face preaching her hippy love crap and Rick's ham-fisted acting and the kid with the cowboy hat and the Governor scowling and every black guy lasting five minutes on the show before being eaten.

Just a great start to the show. Might have to marathon watch the entire damn thing this weekend.

I did a marathon of Suits last weekend. Awesome.

Also have enjoyed Combat Rescue.

What is House of Cards like?

The wife and I would like to get into riding bicycles, and I need motivation to exercise without pounding my knees running/jogging. The only problem bikes now a days are ridiculously expensive! All I'm looking for is disc brakes with front suspension and use for trail/town riding. Hybrid style?

Any suggestions? Trying to get two bikes for under $1,000 combined together.

House of Cards reminds me of the Sopranos. Darker drama of a powerful, corrupt guy trying to get more powerful. Except instead of the mafia, it's the US Senate. Spacey plays a senator who's just brutally manipulative and it's awesome.

I bought a used bike last year for $200. It's not bad. It's a hardtail mountain bike that had upgraded handles and all new brakes and tires. I'm planning on swapping out the off road tires for street tires though.

Gopher and TP have a fair amount of experience here, so they're good people to ask.

There's a place called NOW Bikes in St Paul that I drive by all the time and see tons of bikes in the window. Wish I would have checked them out.

I think you could probably get two good used bikes plus helmets and gear and still be several hundred dollars under your budget.

The first two paragraphs of that read like it's one of those dynamically generated newspaper articles you can read in Sim City 2000.

Finally convinced my doctor to let me get my cast off my arm early. 'Bout time I got rid of it. I was using a tin snips to cut most of it away anyway.

How experienced are you in working on bicycles? Basic maintenance doable?

I actually just purchased the gal a bike from Airborne so she can come along with me on trail rides. Should be here Saturday. They're strictly an online company so the complete bike is shipped to you and you need to assemble it. I would suggest going to bike stores and get fitted on a proper sized frame so you know what you're looking for before purchasing. Or, use a bike fitment calculator like this one.

Here's the basic assembly done:


I ordered her the Sabre from Airborne because she likely isn't going to be going with me all that much and it's enough bike for what she'll need it for. And for $249 to my door, it's worth the shot. They also have the Skyhawk but the smallest they have is an 18" and that won't fit many women unless they've got very long legs or are pretty tall. The Guardian is a very well spec'd bike for the price which I would look into for you. Some combination of those would fit in your budget.

To be completely honest, it'll be hard to fit two solid bikes into that budget (even if it's actually a good sum of money) without going the online or used route for one or both bikes. Online will require some research, whereas used is very tricky because you need to know exactly what you're looking for when you go out to look at the bikes. Especially mountain bikes as they've usually been beaten up pretty good.

i would try out bikes for size at shops then look at craigslist for obsessive upgraders' throwaways. i suppose you have to know what to look for to make sure the gear isn't destroyed, though.

I used a saw to cut a cast off my ankle few years ago. Had no need for it and it was itching like hell.

Turned out to heal just fine, and I didn't want to wait another week to have it removed.

Have to be honest. Think you oversold it by using "brilliant". I feel underwhelmed, sorry.

I've heard nothing but good things. Going to have to check it out.

I tend to like the darker, grittier shows. Most things on FX are right up my alley. And Spacey is almost always good.

[EDIT]: Wow. Robin Wright is looking a bit...rough these days. Not ugly but she got pretty old looking quickly.

Django Unchained is an AMAZING movie--Tarantino is a genius; however, that movie's soundtrack is so dynamite. OH MY GOD. I'm at a loss for words.
