Cornstalk vs. Silver

It was 3 autumns ago when a wayward cornstalk blew across my path....swerving to avoid it only put me on a Life Flight helicopter to the trauma center. Do Not brake for cornstalks!!

This was staged: nonetheless...it's a favorite sign...you know where to find it??

But I just can't seem to get there in daylight hours!

As I was riding along with jeff today...

He said something about how gorgeous this day has been and the golden stillness of our lived out days being such a beautiful reflection of our lives in the world to come...then our thoughts drifted to the bonk orbea bibs and how it will be our job to clear them off the site so no one else is tempted buy them...cycling talk...how diverse and how splendid!

Would I be a better cyclist

If I bought this trek and rode with my hoods a full centimeter higher than the top of the saddle measurement??

Severe thunderstorms, lightening and damaging 60 mph winds

Kept me from biking to starfest 2010...but now the skies are clearing, the sun is shining and the band is playing in it's best form of the season!

The way is shut...it is kept by those who are

Digging...good thing I can get to the cabin by bike...no other way than to jog here...and we all know what that means: _ _ _ _!

I probably shouldn't ask

But before I mount a front tire, how bad is green with blue, red and brown...do I glue or re-shoe!?!

if you don't want to ride fixed...


...don't open the link...


if you do--


join the club!

Any Clothing people...




Does anyone know if spandex can be dyed without staining? I think it is worth a try and Jane thinks I'll end up with white-ish bibs and colored legs. For 29 bucks on bonk it seems like it would be worth a try... or I could just use them for night-time rides or my winter under layer?

Will the repair hold air??

The mystery of the glass shard

Is solved...but can it be fixed???

It's pretty cool...but doesn't ride very well when it comes off!

Dugast tubulars

I'm afraid they ride nice but they're a little over-rated!

A tail-light kind of morning

and long sleeves for me... 42 is the ultimate answer to the ultimate question in the universe...
...but when it's in degrees F it makes you ride hard just to warm up and stop shivering!

This cloud was pretty good also.



I saw it while riding as hard as I could for home and dodging lightning strikes.

Monday, September 6, 2010

I am going to take this cloud formation at face value

...And take a ride home in the outback rather than try it out in the open...seems like fenders only protect so much!

What non-tool have you used

To repair your bike...the kirk likes my new pet rock!
Sent from my Verizon Wireless BlackBerry

Check out the slmc tool kit!

The crankarm on the kirk is falling off...so the clinic gang is setting me up with a tool kit! Nice, huh???
Sent from my Verizon Wireless BlackBerry

Not what I thought they meant!


They call it a tool roll but I didn't know that they meant your tools fall out and roll around behind you. At least it gave me an excuse for another lap at hogsback to look for my stuff. Anyone want a black and gray tool roll?
