Speaking of removing body parts to save weight and increase speed reminded me of a cyclist that I saw 3 or 4 years ago. I was in much better shape then and making my way to Carter Lake from Longmont when I was passed by another cyclist who had a prosthetic on one leg (below the knee I believe). He didn't just pass me, he went by at warp speed. I was very impressed! Bob, I wish you a speedy recovery.
