Do you have an idea HOW much I want a track Paramount?

Road, enamel. Kool lemon is the color (aka yellow) with red pinstriping.

Yeah I know your pain - I want one - a chrome track 'mount. Hell yeah.

Holy crap. We're hopeless.

A dude mentions he buys a pair of $60 tights and all the other guys care about is the cost part. :lol3

Cyclocross practice tonight. Had myself some nice falls (mostly due to declipping issues), but I managed to make it through without smashing a testicle.

I'm really hoping I can make the first race this weekend. Kona Jake or not.

New Bike
 
I ride bicycles pretty regularly, but I've stayed out of the bike threads since I haven't been excited about one in a long time.

That changed yesterday with this craigslist find. Much better than my mountain bike for commuting and towing the kid in a trailer, which is what most of my biking these days consists of.

Just a basket, light, and fenders away from perfection. I love it!

A few pics from the race last weekend. This is the local DFW series.

I started out with the lead during the first lap

...but I've been off the bike for 2 months with a knee injury so I was overtaken after about 2 miles.

The rest of the race was kind of a training ride to get my breathing under control and get myself used to the stresses of racing again. I'm getting there and expect to be competitive in a few weeks (at a state level). I finished 2nd in this race but was a little shakey at the end. The tmbra race this weekend is at Palo Duro canyon (TX) and should be beautiful. I'll have plenty of pics after the weekend. A few more...

The finish line...

Anyone in the Nebraska/Iowa area that does cross racing?

Can you give me a link to the web site? I would like to try to see one in the area, and then decide if it is something I should set as a goal for me in the future. Yes, I am still planning on making a triathlon next year as my goal, but some of the cross pictures makes me think it is something I might enjoy as well, even though I am old and overweight.

650b
 
Does the thought of riding a 650B bike fill you with:

A: Joy since you'll be the only cool kid on the block with one

B: Dread since there are precious few choices of rims, tires and tubes...
