Hey John, no polis were seen on the run home but I saw 3 on my way down. I'm sure it would have been fine as the bike had 4 ratchet straps to seat & door frame points to secure it. That whole rescue mission was surprisingly painless including finding the loose connection. That poor, poor car just gets nothing but abuse! The beers and the 4 hours sleep with a fresh cold made yesterday particularly enjoyable:lol3

Thanks gentlemen.

The Cervelo is actually Canadian, I named her Molly, because the only Canadian girl I've ever known was named Molly. :) I love my bicycles...thats for sure. I miss being able to ride as much as anything else when deployed.

Hey skibum, I noticed in your sig line you have a couple of Surlys, right after I fit out the Blur, Im buying a Karate Monkey to commute on when I get back. I live 12 miles straight line, 17 the way I ride from the base Im stationed at, so its a NICE commute each day. I did it on the Cervy last year, but I really want something more suited to it, plus I wnt a single speed.

I take it you like yours?

I own page 736! Check those apes!
 
Don't need any fancy bike to get around on here in Flori-duh. All you need is a simple beach cruiser. I ride the 8 miles to work in about 22 min. Only 16 miles round trip so I do 70% of the time. During the winter it is dark in the morning so I outfited it with lights and plenty of reflective tape. I decked my big Caloi out with some mini apes and highway gear. Tuff to start out but halling balls once you get going.

yup-love them. I tossed up a Karate Monkey or 1x1 and finally landed on the single. I'd still like a KM with a few gears too. I'm constantly amazed by what I'm able to ride on the 1x1 though, check out the latest album on my smugmug to see the stuff around here. Hmmmm...maybe that KM will come after I spend a season on the Intense that should be here by the end of the week?:D

Right now it DOES suck to be me, all those beautiful bikes are in the garage with my wife steadily piling more crap on top of them. My daughter emails me telling me all the things "Mommy" does to my motorcycle and bicycles...

Thank goodness for little tattle tales...

The wind kicked my ass today both mentally and physically.

Any tips, other than get more aero and peddle faster and harder?
