I'll shut up, you guys will hate me, halfway through my 5th decade I still have a six pack and I truly don't deserve it; I drink an awful lot of beer.

Add 'in moderation' and I agree. Problem with hashing is... there's very little moderation involved!

Screwing up your back sucks big time. That'll change you from a three-sport racing fiend, to a couch potato in no time.
I'd get off the bike and it'd take me a few min to be able to stand up straight. I figured I'd rather have a back then a season and stopped doing the thing that made my back hurt.

Big mistake

Its taken darn near 2 years to get that weight back off again. I'm not *quite* a food nazi, but I'm close. I've had 3 beers in the last 2 months, etc.

The upside to weighing less is no heartburn, acid reflux, or as much snoring. When I was heavy I had to watch what I ate when or it'd crawl back up my throat when I was sleeping. Nasty. Waking up with gastric acid going down your esophagus? Ick.

Oh, I don't have a pic, but I gots me some new handlebars for the Giant. AL Ergonovas. Different shape so I can actually sprint from the drops and not hit my forearms! They don't feel too much different than the carbon S-Works bars that I took off! The innerwebs say I just gained 180g or so, but it don't feel like it. I'm testing these bars in AL to see if I like em before I spend large $ on the carbon version. See? I'm [Forrest Gump] Smart [/FG]

Hey as long as they fit and work for you who really cares..

One thing I don't like about them is that the "Drop" are to short (the whole point of this bars) so is difficult to reach the brake levers tip (more leverage) when hands are on the drops.

Not at all. Those will be my next bars, which will be mounted on my Tricross, that is used as my road bike.

Cuz that's what they wanted. Same thing with blowing the exposure (putting that giant red 'O' in front of her), having her look for peds instead of motor traffic, and sticking a model with teensy, weensy thighs in a bike ad.

Jewelry has finally been ordered & will hopefully all be in by the time I get home next month for the build!

On another note, do any of you guys/gals have experience running Speedplay pedals with non SP shoes? I really want to get the new Sidi Wire shoe but I do not like the fact that the Sidi wire SP only comes in white so I am looking into the Sidi wire vent and getting the SP adapter. Any suggestions?

These are the Wires i want..
