Very Positive (115 reviews) – 93% of the 115 user reviews in the last 30 days are positive. Case in point, I recently built up a 1985 Eddy Merckx with Campagnolo Super Record (not that Super Record) and shod it in tubular tires. No part on the bike is new, except for tires, cables/housing, spokes & nipples. Every part is from the 80s. And guess what? The bike is quickly becoming a huge favorite of mine. It’s huge fun to ride. Compared to a modern bike, the shifting is slow, the brakes require thought and distance to stop, and forget about trying to shift when out of the saddle. But damn, I love riding this thing. I like riding for the sake of riding.

I want to forewarn you though… this post is about several different events, four of them I’ve turned into a collage to shorten the post, and hopefully make it a bit easier to see why this May has been full of activity for us 🙂 Really, each of the collages could have served as a post of their own, but my time challenges won’t permit me this luxury, so I will share them with you like this.mountainmountain

Because mountain habitats can change quickly as elevations increase, they are often home to a greater diversity of plants and animals than nearby lowlands. On some mountains, especially at medium elevations in warmer latitudes, many species are endemic, meaning that they are found nowhere else in the world.

The mechanics of climate change are pretty well understood: human industrial activity puts more carbon and methane and stuff into the atmosphere, where they are now concentrated to an extent unseen in history. This means something, although drilling down to exactly what it means is frustrating. In the decades since this idea was first publicly broached, data have accumulated that are mostly consistent with initial warnings: melting polar ice caps, rising global average temperatures, more severe weather events like hurricanes, floods and droughts. Climate models suggest whatever’s been happening is not going to stop where we are now, but rather that what’s been happening has been a small preview of an increasingly weird future.mountain
