I'm expecting ponies. So many ponies.

I don't have any good advice, but I can relate. As a kid you only get one (very limited) view of your parents. Over time these awkward but eye-opening moments happen where you have to realize they are normal people, too.

If you really want some fun, hang out with your parents' old friends and ask them for stories. You might learn more about your folks than you expect (or want).

Yeah. Though now that you mention it, I never found out the name of his other leg.

Their first customer is American Airlines. The airline is paying Graphyte to capture 10,000 tons of CO2 to offset emissions from its planes.

I know a guy who addresses his wife as Woman. It started as a joke and stuck. She loves it. When he needs to get her attention in a public place he just shouts, "Woman!" and she cheerfully responds. It gets great reactions from people who don't know.

Despite my best efforts to get away from computers, I still find myself attached to them in one way or another during most of my waking hours. Lemmy is my computer time that acts as a mental break from other computer time. Connecting in an even more intimate way sounds horrible.

This is a total shot in the dark, but maybe you could use a preload adjuster from another coil-sprung fork with the same stanchion size. Maybe even from a different manufacturer, since they would likely use the same thread. You could take a $10 gamble on a Suntour preload adjuster:

You might also try eBay or AliExpress. Sometimes they have obscure odds and ends. Like this kit of Dart parts that includes a knob labeled "preload": https://www.aliexpress.us/item/3256805637110919.html?browser_id=8a1984772dfd4ab080c71915b949e34f&aff_platform=msite&m_page_id=adfdabcbef1900ad6c6a8111bffe272536d7dee6fc&pdp_npi=4%40dis%21USD%2129.48%2129.48%21%21%21213.18%21213.18%21%40210307c117181687661077207ed2ce%2112000034479042138%21sea%21US%210%21AB&algo_pvid=8def227a-db37-43af-a5e8-b289a18ad24f

Look at the Eagle Claw Pack-It rods. They offer telescoping and 4-piece versions. Pair with a small used spinning reel and you're easily under $50.

Apple DOS on an Apple IIe in school.

First Linux distro was Debian.

Maybe try Wald?
https://waldsports.com/store/front-baskets/

Depending on what mounting points your bike has, you could also get a "porteur" style front rack with a large platform, and then attach a separate basket. That would probably cost more than the Wald baskets but might be stronger for carrying heavy loads. See the Specialized and Old Man Mountain "pizza racks" for example. Soma, Surly, and Nitto also make racks like that.

Edit: nevermind, I completely missed that you want the basket mounted to the frame and not the fork.

I was rougher on pillows back then.

There's a story here, I just know it.

I didn't expect to see this in the rural western US.

Please pardon the water drops in the image. I was shooting through a car window.

A better picture of the flag is on Wikipedia:

I had never seen one of these before today. They're great. Way better than reaching for a single pole in a crowded car and wrapping your hand around some stranger's fingers. And If you have the whole thing to yourself you can hook your arm through it.

I was excited to ride to work today in the sunny spring weather. Then I saw the wind forecast. No thank you, I'll pass. I ride directly into the wind on my commute home, and am completely exposed the whole way.

Edit: For people who use proper units, 43 miles/hour is 69 km/hour.
