<t>Whenever I try to set the brake cables on my bike, the caliper screws on my front/rear derailers, the alignment of my brakes and so on, I have a really hard time getting it set properly. How do you learn to do it right, it drives me nuts. I once spent 3 hours trying to get side pull caliper brake...

Seriously?? The top top top huge TVs top out at around 20k. If I wanted really huge I would just go for a quality 1080p projector. It's the biggest you'll get. At those budgets it's starting to reach theatre setups.

<t>Are you forced to get a gas guzzling diesel truck to move it around? Will anything approaching gas efficiency ( like 20/30 mpg ) work for the majority of the time that your not towing it around and travelling to see friends and family?<br/> I do not want to add a motorbike to the back due to the ...

<t>Books are horrible storage and weight wise. When I was moving a long distance, it took something like 5 boxes worth of stuff to put all my books in, and they were the heaviest boxes by far.

Anything rugged will also be waterproof in this segment. I decided on getting a Canon D10 or it's successor whenever I was going to go on a trip again, and it seems to fit most of your requirements.

<t>What I like about crossfit gyms is that it's set it and forget it effective exercise. You don't get bored, it's a community of sorts, it's not monotonous, you don't have to schedule things, you don't have to plan your workouts, you work out hard, it's relatively quick, and it's only really self-c...
