It's all in the cleat....

Source of my knee pain yesterday....
Fat Albert. Who's the chic in the background, Buddy....
Are we gonna roll or what....?
Oldman suggested that I check my cleats as the possible source of the knee pain I experienced last night. As you can see from the top picture, the right cleat was broken on the back locking edge. I rode 32 miles with The Thin Man tonight with not even a suggestion of knee pain. It was good! Thanks, Brian!
I ran into Fat Albert, Doug, and Tony on my way down to the shop for the group ride tonight. Super Saul joined us at Pfeiffer and admitted that, yes, it is he who is the subject of the picture of recent post. He claims that he was trying to count change, not pee, in that pic. Whatever you say, Ron. It's all good! I didn't see any pop machines in that picture!
Fat Albert owes me two Guinness draughts. Yep, the camera works!
Rode with The Thin Man out to the end of 27th then south to Dike (into the wind) and then east on old Hwy 20 back to CF. It was a good ride. Thanks, Brent!
That's it for now.
Ride safe.
Peace out, yo!

Glad I could help! That cleat looks like it was used to pound some sense into a disrespectful motorist! :^)
I'm not buying the loose change story either.

Is that my shoe? I had a cleat that looked exactly like that. You been rummagin' through my trash? If I get a credit card bill for a brand new, full on carbon fiber, blue Colnago with Campy Record and Bora wheels, I'll know where to send the cops.
