There were a couple of splotches of mud here and there though. It was real rough.




It was beautiful in San Diego today.

I had to go there for a rugby match.

But, to stay on topic, I have been riding my bike to work this entire week and intend to for the rest of this "winter...."

We have another four inches of fresh snow this morning. That's in addition to the foot already on the ground.

Whatever you do DO NOT ride the Epic S-Works with the 2x10! Trust me on this one


Nope. Don't do it.

WTF?! There's a car sitting at the light and you STILL feel the need to run it?! In the middle of BFE nowhere?!

Stoopit fucking triathletes! Do that shit around your OWN house, don't do it around mine!



Other than that: 1.35 or so with 20min of tempo and a stretch of dirt road. Thermometer sez 'mid-20s' Gummee's personal thermometer said 'sweaty' after that tempo session! Gotta love merino!

Yeah - that looks s-w-e-e-t. I like the simple geometry of the shock and frame layout - nothing complicated & spiderweb-like on some frames. What's the street price of one of those?

My weekend has sucked as far as riding goes.

I had a big list of homework to complete. I'm just finishing it all off now.

Re-plumbed the drains of two sinks, the original builders, managed to plug the over-flows with putty. Nice work.

Had to replace a soap dish in the tile so got that chipped out and the new one buttered back in.

Fed the bird feeder, fussed with the switches on the motorcycle. Farted around in the garage looking for stuff and getting rid of other stuff.
I did have the bicycle down, Friday fully intending to hit a long ride on Saturday but upon waking I was confronted with "The List".

Mount Shower Rod, (me: what shower rod? Oh...)

We're going to the tile shop to get the tile since we couldn't find the soap dish. I remove the broken one from the tub, and send it along in case they find one that fits.

They do. I'd spent about three hours chipping and tailoring the pocket for the new dish. A call warned me.

They brought sink parts, and since the wind came up hard enough over night to wake me in the middle of the night, (I'm mostly deaf anymore so it was a big wind. )

So, today was sinks and finish out the soap dish.

After all the stairs, (tools in the garage work is upstairs), laying on my back under sinks and sitting on the edge of the tub, I am ready to nap.

Ya may have lost this battle, but I'm sure the war's going just fine.



I was pretty ineffectual tonite at UW Hockey. ...and that was OK with me 'cause I was out on the bike this AM too. In my defense, there were 19 of us which meant 1-1 subs on a few positions. That also means that the game's faster and harder cause there's some rested-up people playing. Makes it tougher to get in there if you're 'just OK' like I am.

I have it on good authority that if you work at a Specialized dealer, you can get em for less than half that. STILL farging expensive, but

I want one. Badly. I don't mtn bike much when I'm in NoVA, so I'm gonna wait for a bit before I plunk down $$ for one. If/when I end up in either CO or mid-northern AZ I'll get one before I go. Next up for me: Jamis Xenith SL. Who needs Zipp 404s?!
