I got a very old Trek frame (road bike) that I'm thinking of upgrading but don't have any experience upgrading bikes, what are some things I should look out for?

Whatever1984, what's your opinion? Comment below:
  • Vintage Seltzer. It's the OG and beats LaCroix by a mile. For under a buck a liter it's a screaming deal. Go for club soda or diet tonic for mixing, or lemon-lime for drinking on its own
  • Essential Phones (RIP) great hardware, no bloat and they typically had updates out within a day of Google
  • Cannondale and Pinarello bicycles
  • Ducati Motorcycles, particularly the older ones. The Good Doctor cannot be wrong
  • I'm going to throw something I don't think anybodyย knows here as well: Dizengoff Hummus in Philly. A restaurant that just serves the star dish from the #1 restaurant in town (Zahav) Quick and easy if you are grabbing dinner, although the lunch lines can get brutal, and all for under 15 bucks
The only difference between Asset Management and Investment Research is assets. I generally see somebody I know on TV on Bloomberg/CNBC etc. once or twice a week. This sounds cool, until I remind myself that I see somebody I know on ESPN five days a week.

Dude, the sugar free gummi bears might change your mind on the first one. (Or enhance it immensely if just given to disliked coworkers)

Not a fan of La Columbe either. however they make it the coffee ends up significantly less acidic than most iced coffees. call me odd, but I like the acidity.
