    A gift card and a housewarming card for my girl, was thinking of getting something warm since she has moved.
    I do usually spend her all this time with her too. I was a fool the other day, got somewhat angry and forgot where I was typing it up though :) All good around my head and heart again :)

    My understanding from @codesplice is that for 1/2 the price you lose wireless charging, waterproofing, glass back, front facing speakers while the front cameras and processor are a little less high quality. That's all stuff I care little about. I'll still get the great rear camera, 3 years of updates, and he said he was really impressed with how well it stacked up in day to day use with the regular Pixel 3.

    Plus, $16 / month with no interest is easy to swallow. :)

    Look it you guys, STOP!! I'm debating about picking one up as a backup, today is the last day at BB to get the gift card with it. I don't need to read how wonderful it is, it's not helping! :D

    I grabbed this for $20 at a moving sale. Inflated the tires, oiled it up and it's mostly good. I need a new seat and to fine tune the front derailer and I'll be good to go.

    I'd say you made out like a bandit! That's a good bike that looks to have many miles left in it. It looks nearly new!
    I ordered a mirror and a cell phone holder for my RipCurrent S today. After riding my son's bike around I realized that I'm too deaf to hear traffic approaching from the rear. My E-bike is supposed to be delivered Tuesday. To say I'm excited is likely the largest understatement I've ever made.

    I know, I know.

    But I totally fell for this watch and it was cheap. I do like the 24-hour movement...but it takes getting used to, that is for sure. ;)

    I have a 24 hour clock hanging above my desk. Been there many years. If given the chance I always use the 24 hour format. I've never seen noon at the top of the dial or 00 hour denoted as 24. That's an odd dial to me. Looks good though.

    It's expensive to ride in comfort. :eek:

    Thanks. There are a few variations on the 24-hour theme, and all are an adjustment to one degree or another, particularly from “2x12” convention. One thing I like about this one is that the “daylight” (ish) hours are on the top half of the dial while the “night” (ish) hours are on the bottom.

    Enjoy the new bike!

    There are many that would argue that I'm not worth it. :) I'm not doing the gel seat or padded bike shorts this time around. Bumps in the road are a bum deal. :)

    OT: I lost a lot of weight but I still fear pedals will break on any bike I purchase. Broke two different expensive ones before I just gave bikes up. My last purchase will not be a Bicycle.

    I can't talk ... but I will. :p ;)

    I watched this YouTube video that asked the question "Is it possible to make a decent watch from (new) parts purchased on Ebay?" Given my nature to accept such challenges I did a little shopping, found a case, dial, movement, hands and a strap and came up with this frankenwatch.
