Beastie Boys theme tonight. First things first. The cat's out of the bag so it's time for pictures. I got a Pugs and yes, I'm already plotting a trip with Dave in the snow. He's building up a snow machine out of an On-One. Arrowhead 2008?
Picked it up from Luby at Maverick. Thanks man.
Today marks the first day back to training. It's been a nice month off but I'm itching to ride again. Did a spirited lunch ride today on the new rigid forked Monocog. Thanks to Mr.Nice for pushing the rigid. The Reba's need some TLC anyway. Don't mind the spacers, I'm not set on the axle-to-crown length yet nor the steerer length. Tis the season to experiment.Bikes in the kitchen are the new hotness. Becky's down with the sickness.After work I rode the trainer. Solo tonight because Marni's back was still hurting but the new setup is sweet. Pick your poison, rollers or mag. Acceleration work out on the rollers tonight.Also geeked out the handlebar of Cogsworth with a new gear/speed chart. Who needs a computer when you have a watch and can count? Don't mind the fact that the photo is impossible to read. I swear there is one line that reads cadences and one that reads MPH. Really. It does. I'm just terrible with pictures and Flounder agrees.Your regularly scheduled blog is now interupted by Turbo stalking a stuffed Canadian goose.
Not too much gear geeking going on but a little. GoLite had their semi-annual clearance this past weekend. I picked up some WP/B Reed pants for Marni and me and an XS Virga for her to complete our rain gear. 10.1 ounces for me (Diad/Reed):
10.8 ounces for her (Virga/Reed):
Also picked up a secret present for someone who's name rhymes with Bad, a Dawn pack to play with (big enough for winter no?), a Wisp hoodless windshirt (2.6oz) and another jacket and base layer for Marni. Everything was rediculously cheap but I still resisted the Hex3 shelter...for now. She whose name rhymes with Bomb also got a secret present(s) but Marni picked it/them up from it's/their home.Goodnight from Mr. and Mrs.Pivvay.
