parapulse So I did that thing where you make a website. It's not good or anything and I'm a bad writer but you asked me to so there ya go. Like the fb page or rss or whatever you kids do these days pls. PS come to new ig acct! @glittergravel www.glittergravel.com Thanks! 2y
  •   parapulse PS this is the last I'm gonna spam you with this acct. goodbye and good night! 2y
  •   fiddlebacksnyder I could write for you. Sure, my work would have nothing to do with your draft, subject, or cycling in general. And yea, maybe it would be packed with profanities and political slurs but hey, if you ever feel like publishing a cynical rant on media inefficiency, I'm your man. Also I cant spell or type. 2y
  •   parapulse @fiddlebacksnyder Sounds awesome! Send me an email holler@glittergravel.com. I like both profanities and political slurs, as well as things that don't have anything to do with appropriate subject matter. 2y

parapulse My elevation profiles always look like the top one. I'm gonna climb for more than 100 meters for the first time ever this weekend! (the bottom one). I'm stoked! Wish me luck! Also come to the new acct @glittergravel. Thanks! Love y'all! 2y
  •   area45 @parapulse where are you headed? 2y
  •   parapulse @area45 Dahlonega, GA to ride the Southern Cross route. 2y
  •   parapulse @area45 and Chattanooga, TN the day before that for general mtb shenanigans. 2y
  •   sklontz I definitely want to hear about Southern Cross. If I had a car I would meet you there. 2y
  •   parapulse @sklontz There will be lots of pictures I'm sure! The actual race isn't til February, I'm just riding the route. Because you know going out into the unfamiliar mountains unsupported in December is an awesome idea. 2y
  •   jdgesus jelus 2y
  •   chamaaron That's a brutal race. The trails around there are awesome. The same people that put on Southern Cross do a race called Fool's Gold. 2y

parapulse Per your request, i done went and made one-a-dem fancy website things. Tell yr people friend things pls. GlitterGravel.com. It has pro tips such as old toe straps don't look as dumb ankle straps until someone invents waterproof skinny pants. Where's that wagon? PS go to the new matching acct @glittergravel. This one's gonna stop being updated. Thx! 2y
  •   parapulse Well it'll have that pro tip once I write the post I'm writing now. Have some patience! 2y
  •   blakeco7 Killer website. I'm trying to get the biking bug to bite my lady... 2y
  •   parapulse @blakeco7 Thanks! Best advice I have is make sure her bike is in good working order and not too much shittier than yours, and if you ride together make it real low pressure. I should write a whole post. I will do this later. Check the site in a few days for lots more words on the subject. Haha. 2y
  •   nickddavis Yeah, the blog looks great. 2y
  •   parapulse @nickddavis Thanks Nick! Still making a lot of tweaks here and there. 2y

parapulse Sometimes I worry I'll move somewhere where they don't have meat and threes and I'll be forced to eat non-mushy food. 2y
  •   exoticdave Ain't no meat on that plate. 2y
  •   parapulse @daveisunoriginal Mashed potatoes aren't meats???? 2y
  •   artgroupe Protein !! 2y
  •   parapulse @artgroupe I eat meat too, don't worry! 2y
  •   parapulse @artgroupe (I was super hungover this day and only wanted mushy food) 2y
  •   artgroupe Mmm, well if you were super hungover, try coke (a cola) and vitamin B...then the mushy food. 2y
  •   parapulse @artgroupe I find coke (the drug) is much more effective. Actually I'm a pretty big fan of coconut water. Electrolytes! Hydration! Coconuts! 2y
  •   artgroupe Well you know, i'm old school, but I do like coconuts. 2y

parapulse Pro tip! A 9x13 cake fits perfectly in a small #missionworkshop bag with enough room to spare for a container of frosting. #caketransportbybike #latergram #cakedicks #youdontneedacar #rainbowsyall 2y
  •   fastmouse Your pro tips are better than the ones I find in the magazines. 2y
  •   parapulse @fastmouse Aw thanks! I'm actually in the process now of making a whole website/blog deal. Then the Internet can have some musings instead of just ig. Weeeeeee 2y

parapulse Today I amassed a collection of assorted mosses. A #mosslection if you will. 2y
  •   parapulse @fastmouse @rossspruiell I see what you did there 2y
  •   parapulse @surlyoldman well by amassed a collection I mean I took pictures. They all got to stay in the woods. Trail ethics and whatnot. 2y
  •   parapulse @salguod73 That ones my favorite. 2y
  •   surlyoldman Awesome! It's nice to know someone appreciates it also. I researched growing some in the house... Not a good idea. Ha! 2y
  •   parapulse @surlyoldman It's a trendy thing now among some groups to have moss terrariums. Maybe it is safer if they are sealed? Although I'm not sure how well moss would do in a sealed environment. 2y
  •   surlyoldman Yeah... I'll just make frequent trips to the woods with my mountain bike. :) 2y
  •   fastmouse Some mold spores are bad for lungs, but I think moss and lichen spores are mainly harmless. I've been huffing moss for a while with no problems... But yah, respect nature and leave it where you found it. 2y

Valencia parapulse
parapulse Aw man. They were right about eating so many beets. 2y
  •   hullosam Hahaha 2y
  •   bahamontes 2y
  •   fiddlebacksnyder How do like that full windsor? 2y
  •   parapulse @fiddlebacksnyder This is actually a wit industries fendor bendor (the original version). It is easily removable and folds up so I can carry it in my bag or pocket when it's not raining and can just pull it out when I need it. Obviously it's not as effective as full fenders but it mostly keeps the stripe off my back. Feet get wet if it's raining good bc there's no front but I like the clean look and don't want fenders full time so it's a compromise. I've had mine maybe a year and a half and it's holding up great. A++ would buy again. Haha. 2y

parapulse She was the bungee queen, brings you coffee, only seventeen. Wait. I'm WAY past 17 at this point. Fuck you abba for makin me feel old. 2y
  •   ash__chase There's just something magical about riding that elevator with a bike... Until old men yell at you 2y
  •   parapulse @chase_ash I love when the lights are on at night! I only get yelled at when I should be, like of they're doing construction and you're obviously not supposed to go through but I do anyway. Do random old men yell at you or just "authority" figures? 2y
  •   ash__chase @parapulse Just crabby men with small children 2y

Sierra parapulse
parapulse Sunday I ended up with at least seven holes in three tubes. Slow leak in the back turned into a fast leak, pinch flats along the tube seams. As I was running out of patches and co2 and options, this old bearded dude who lives over in the holler and starts drinkin whiskey at 4:40 every morning came along and gave me a ride back to my car. He was diagnosed with heart disease and instead of paying for expensive treatment opted to just go back to the farm and die when it's time. He refused money when we got back to the car, saying he just hoped he'd helped someone out. Why do people sit around and watch tv? Go make your own real life adventures! 2y

parapulse Gettin back on the fixed gear after a couple days of rollin free always feels like coming home. 2y
  •   lostsoul68 Nice 2y
  •   parapulse @jdgesus I guess if it were truly sweet I would have already gotten rid of the 2 on my 12 vitesses sticker. Or maybe a chainring that wasn't ovalized. #122bcd 2y
  •   gregaudio Random question: How are you liking your Mifi SD card? I'm looking to get one, maybe the 4gig X2. Main purpose would be to transfer pics from my waterproof point and shoot cam to my android phone. Thanks! 2y
  •   parapulse @gregaudio I loved it when I first got it! Last time I shot with it when I put it in the computer to get the pics off the actual card (I had deleted them from phone to save space), it said I needed to format the card before I could use it. Now I didn't want to do this bc I didn't want to lose all the pics I already took. If I put it on the camera I could see the pics but once they are transferred to phone once I don't know how to get then to push through again. So I now have a card I can't access the photos on at all. Don't wanna format the card and lose the photos I already took. I'm sure if I looked hard online I could figure a solution to this problem but as of now I'm just not using it 2y
  •   gregaudio Hmm not good. I've read similar complaints on Amazon. Can you access the card through a camera? Like keep the card in a camera, then use the mini USB to plug the camera into a computer, instead of using a card reader? 2y
  •   parapulse @gregaudio That's not something I considered. I always put my sd cards into readers. I don't even have a cord for my camera. Maybe I will look into trying that. 2y
  •   gregaudio Good luck! Thanks for the insight. 2y
