re: How long have you had the same cell phone number? (Update) - TU Rob
I’ve only had maybe 3 cell numbers. First one was when I was 17 and it was either my mom or dads old phone. Big old brick phone with the battery pack on the back. Back then no one knew cell numbers, it was strictly for emergency use. Then in college my mom switched from the local carrier to SunCom a...

re: The Peloton Thread - TU Rob
[quote] How tough is it to manually adjust the resistance?[/quote] Just turning a knob. After a while you kind of get used to how much you are adding. Like if an instructor calls out increase your resistance 2-5 pts I know about what adding 5 feels like on the fly. ...

re: The Peloton Thread - TU Rob
[quote]Any big differences in the bike and the bike+ other than the screen size and extra speakers?[/quote] The resistance adjusts automatically to the called ranges, at least in the replays of the class after they add those in. I’m not sure if it does in live classes. Other than that I’m not sur...

re: Adjustable Dumbbells - TU Rob
If you don’t need the quick change variety just get some from Walmart or academy. I have an older soloflex set and was looking to get a new type but after looking at prices I can change plates instead. ...

re: Anyone use Carmax or Autotrader to sell a used car? - TU Rob
Sold one to Carmax last week. The good thing is the offer is good for a week. We took it in on Thursday and the inspection took about 35 minutes. But there was a long wait for the paperwork so we left and brought it back at 10 the next day when they opened and we’re first in line. Still took around ...

re: The Peloton Thread - TU Rob
Hit my 100th ride yesterday. And the wife finally got back on the bike. All I heard last fall was she needed to go for walks and exercise more. So I bought us the bike at Christmas. She was all in. For about 2 weeks. Kept making excuses after that but after seeing a few months of my results she’s fi...

re: Anyone have their master bedroom upstairs? How do you like it? - TU Rob
We live in an older house built in the 60s. There wasn’t a true master with an attached bath when we moved in. The larger bedroom was upstairs and we slept up there a few years when the kids were younger. Now that we’ve got more in the family we converted an old den into a master bath and walk in cl...

re: Recently started running - went too hard - TU Rob
[quote]Maybe look into a couch to 5k type program. You may have the fitness level to run one already but from what I understand that program will ease your joints into being in better shape for running often[/quote] Always a good option, either starting out or getting back into it. I've used one...

re: Need to replace ac system cost? - TU Rob
We got a new 4 ton Rheem about a year and a half ago for 7k. New blower with a gas furnace as well. If it was just an AC swap it would have been less but we went from a 3.5 ton to the 4 ton and it needed a larger furnace and blower. We had a small addition we were adding to the duct work so needed a...

re: The Peloton Thread - TU Rob
Apparently I hit 2k minutes this year the other day. Saw the badge and didn’t realize it had been that much. Those 20/30/45 minute rides add up. ...

re: Tundra in the shop.... - TU Rob
[quote]What code? Might the secondary air pump. Those things are a pain.[/quote] Happened on our Sequoia last year. Check engine and TRAC off lights were on in the dash. If it is the pump, it isn't cheap to replace. Similar circumstances, it won't accelerate like normal. We had a third car to...

[quote]I still haven’t taken a live class. I’m a night time rider and there is rarely one happening past lunch time. [/quote] I've done a few on Saturdays, and one on my birthday recently, but that's it. No birthday shoutout. All about the sessions at night. ...

[quote]Took my first Jess King class this morning…good lord [/quote] I haven't been brave enough to take a sweat steady class yet. Although I did take a Denis Morton 45 minute ride last night that was great. I usually stick to 30 min classes, and I shattered my 45 min PR on this one. May have...

re: The Peloton Thread - TU Rob
75th ride tonight. Also found some resistance band classes this afternoon. Did a 10 min glutes and legs class followed by a 10 min upper body, both with Andy Speer. Didn’t realize they had band workouts on there but nice to know. ...

re: Garage workout in summer - TU Rob
[quote]Agreed. I love cutting my grass at midday in the summer. My dad will come over and ask, "why not wait til 6pm?"

[quote]I have more success in heat and the hotter I get the more success I have. Eat right and watch the fat fall off from the areas you want it to. [/quote] Same here. My Peloton is in my office, which is off of our screened deck. There is an A/C vent in there, but it doesn't do a ton to ge...

re: Cleaning horse stall mats for Gym - TU Rob
How heavy are these things? I've thought about getting one for under our bike, but I would like to be able to move it out and hose it off every now and then. We have the bike in my home office, which is off of our covered deck. It would be moving it about 15 feet and hanging it on the deck railin...
