'We can't keep up': Demand amid COVID-19 leaves few bicycles in Kansas City shops

Silver lining?..


https://www.kansascity.com/news/business/article243955412.html?

Two dozen bicycles line the front window of Midwest Cyclery’s bike shop in Midtown Kansas City. But these bikes aren’t for sale. They’re waiting for repairs.

Owner Christina Decker said she’d normally never have used bikes on display. But after a surge in sales the past few months due to the coronavirus pandemic, combined with a manufacturing shortage, Kansas City area bike shops are low on stock and backed up on repairs.

“Our shop is now inundated with 140-plus repairs waiting to be done,” Decker said. “The amount of repairs that we have in reflects the lack of bikes we don’t have.”


Just bought a recumbent...love to bike..Over the years has helped control my asthma..STrong bodies....

Chris Jones looking for $20M per year 'or I won't play'


Chris!! Baby!...Your good...occasionally..Couldn't do much against san frans linemen...

seem to always have an ailment that keeps you from going 100%...You go hard the

next season and maybe the chiefs can pony up a little more...


Standout defensive lineman Chris Jones and his Super Bowl-champion Chiefs have until July 15 to work out a long-term deal.

However, if Jones, who the team applied the franchise tag to in March, doesn't get the deal he's desiring, it might be well past mid-July until Kansas City sees the uber-talented DL again.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reported Tuesday on NFL Total Access that Jones has "always viewed himself as a $20 million-plus" per-year player, but that the Chiefs have never seen him in such a light and have never offered him that substantial an amount. Hence, Garafolo added there is "a lot of work to be done," if a long-term pact is to be had and Garafolo's not confident it will happen.

Jones, a 2019 Pro Bowler, replied via Twitter to a reply to a video of Garafolo's report that a holdout might be in store.

"Or I won't play. Le'Veon Bell told me about this," Jones' tweet read.

"horrendous decision"

To save lives...Stumpy isn't the only winger trying to kill people...

And it's that simple, isn't it? The yellow haired traitor pushed opening up

the country, pushed bullshit about masks and set a queer example for the

nation trying to get over this pandemic..



https://www.kansascity.com/news/politics-government/article243905637.html

A Johnson County commissioner urged constituents to contact Gov. Laura Kelly about her “horrendous decision.” A Republican U.S. Senate candidate said he shuddered at the thought of the state government telling people what to wear.

Kelly’s plan to require face masks in public spaces to fight a new spike in coronavirus cases in Kansas sparked an immediate backlash on Tuesday that threatened to undercut the mandate even before it goes into effect Friday. Conservative politicians dismissed the order as inappropriate and some county leaders suggested they may try to overturn it.

The fight is playing out ahead of a long Independence Day weekend that will feature gatherings centered on cookouts, fireworks and parades — all of it risking further spread of the virus.

Ace hardware...

Had been avoiding going anywhere for tools, hardware..But I really

needed some bolts..So I went into the ace hardware in augusta..with

mask in place..Got that first look by the helpers, to see who and then

looking down quick..No one, but me has a mask on...One of them took

me to where the fasteners were..messed around finding the right ones and

then as we were heading up to the cash register, which by the way the

owner had put a big piece of plexiglas up so the cashier wouldn't be breathed

on.., I asked the guy that had helped me if it worried him not wearing a

mask? They deal with a lot of people during the day.."No, he said" "Haven't

worn one from the beginning.."....Might think that the heavy resurgence of

the virus in 24 states...as in worst than before...Might, just might make a person

think about wearing a mask..

New bike coming in tomorrow...From Taiwan..

Never rode a bent before..its going to be a challenge from everything I've read
and the youtube vids...some of those are pretty hilarious..I do a lot of dirtroad
biking on the specialized hardrock..some asphalt with the spec tri-cross...This is
going to be completely different...for awhile...

Ivanka Trump snub at Wichita State could threaten WSU president's job, Koch support

Unfucking believable...Hell the students didn't want her there..the students
GET IT!!!...


https://www.kansas.com/news/local/education/article243382231.html

Wichita State donors are threatening to cut ties and pull support from the university if the Kansas Board of Regents don’t dump president Jay Golden for canceling Ivanka Trump’s commencement speech.

The flap over cancellation of President Trump’s daughter’s speech to students at the university’s separate trade-school campus threatens a multi-million-dollar relationship with Wichita’s largest private corporation, Koch Industries, according to a former state regent with deep ties to WSU.

The Kansas Board of Regents has called a special meeting Wednesday afternoon to reportedly decide Golden’s future at the university.

In July 2011, NASA's Space Shuttle Atlantis launched from Florida to the International Space Station, the last time humans traveled to space from US soil. The long drought should soon be over as SpaceX prepares to send two NASA astronauts to the ISS inside a purpose-built Crew Dragon capsule. This historic mission passed a critical readiness review and launch is scheduled for Wednesday, May 27. 

The mission, known as Demo-2, has had its share of setbacks. With safety checks on the capsule complete, however, NASA and SpaceX are finally ready to fly. We've rounded up everything you need to know about the launch and when and where you can tune in.
