I don't listen to much rap actually but Doomtree is getting me into it. I especially like Paper Tiger (which is glasses-guy apparently) his False Hopes album is great. The woman is Dessa of course, really like her. It's cool to hear places you know name-checked in the songs.
Going here tomorrow - Itasca State Park, for the rest of the week. It's MN's first state park, (and the nations second I learned tonight) it's old school. It's got decades of WPA-CCC work including the Old Timer's Cabin above made out of then-available gigantic logs. See you all when we get back on the grid.
We're liking this bike. Talked him down $200, turned around and put most of it right back in. Reports are positive.
See how the stoker has pedal-blocks? - last night I reinstalled the "helper crank" (a clamp-on BB with chainring and shorty crankset) onto the seat tube with a chain down to the main crank, raised the seat and bars (with a longer reach stem - see that? - it's just a regular 1 inch quill between the adapter and the handlebar) and voila; no more pedal blocks. Maeve could be the stoker if she wanted, that's cool. I love the flexibility.
I've been noticing tandems much more now and most are relatively low-end tank-like park-cruisers, or ultra-high-end lone-wolf-mobiles, I really appreciate the high quality and detailed engineering of this bike. Probably nearly 20 years old and seemingly ready for another 20.
