The Garage at BeeBeep's

As this forum wide Mini Circle Jerk continues to escalate, I went to the Mini site to peruse the offerings. No :manuel: but that JCW ALL4 Clubman looks pretty bad ass and very versatile. 301hp, AWD, and room for some stuff while not being yuge. :notbad: The Clubman is our perfect car. AWD for the s...

So, who all has had a bike fit done? I have some ongoing knee discomfort... thinking of springing for this, it is :waxer: but possibly worth it? http://uptowncyclescharlotte.com/retul-fitting/ There are other shops around that can do a basic fitting for $100-200, I think I might just opt for "...

Tire Kicking By Griff

I don’t think the F56S is the answer but maybe I’m wrong. In4drives. I still like the CTR idea. My STI depreciated $5k over 4 years. CTRs hood value better because there are fewer of them. Also fanboi status. I was talking with one of the bros that’s bought parts from MMWX and he had a CTR at one p...

I was supposed to hold the same resistance for each interval but I decided to dial up the heat and add one percentage point per interval.

Those last two to three intervals per set hurt. :lol:

CTR is still the answer. :micdrop: :lolol: :notwrong: It's funny too, a CTR would likely cost less to own than the $16K MINI I linked... but it's still $45K to post up...

We hit the rail trail to the pier and then back to the pub by here on Saturday for the wife's inaugural ride on her road bike.

I’m not so sure about that.

I’ve got a stupidly robust immune system, and my side effects were very minor.

Skyline Drive was still quite an epic and beautiful ride and an adventure to remember :lolol: I hope to come back and re-attempt conquering it one day (in July or August). Our mistake was looking at weather in the surrounding towns and thinking “some rain at 60F should be fine.” Well pouring rain s...

So, we didn’t finish Skyline drive today. Got reacquainted with the beginning stages of hypothermia, doe. That sounds less than fun. It was all fun and games until the temp dropped about 10 degrees in 10 miles, and the wheels started to fall off the wagon. Got down to 37 degrees by mile 60 with pou...

R56 rear suspension swap, adjust the coilovers, reinstall the fender liners and fender flares, alignment, detail.

Not much. The rear suspension swap is the big one that remains.
