what suspension?? that car is so slammed, there's probably only 2-3 inches travel at max. I bet your fillings would rattle loose going over the typical country lane around here, never mind freeway expansion strips. be great for a track day at Sears Point.

I just found out that DirecTv doesn't carry Universal Sports so no Giro for me this year unless I pay the $20 for it.
Does anybody know if there is a site like Racing Underground for bicycle racing?
Any luck finding the torrents on The Pirate Bay?
Or any other way to see the 3 Grand Tours because I have a feeling this is going to happen in July and September also.
Thanks.

from Mr Head - "About 2 miles form the bridge I pass Paul heading home going the other way. He had the Surley wound up to stun bag and all, I slowed turned and chased back to him. That expenditure of what little energy I had left form the day pretty much did me. The little bump of a hill up from the river to the road hammered the final nail in good and tight.

Paul of course spun the Surley up that knob like it wasn't there.

I caught back on in about a mile but knew I was done. Thankfully he slowed to around 15 mph so I could catch my breath and save something for the mile hill back to the house. "

Well I didn't notice that it was you otherwise I would have slowed. I was concentrating on the path ahead of me.

Riding without a computer has been good. Ride in my comfort zone regardless of what that speed may be. No matter how good of shape I think I am getting into, I get my butt kicked every night. Maybe ride the Roubaix tomorrow and try to hang onto somebodies wheel. Maybe even take a turn up front.

Thanks.
A friend I ride/rode with in the PNWet sent me the blog links for the Bikesnobnyc. I liked that a lot. Then I wandered into Rivendell. I can't afford their bikes but I can read their stuff.
Even cooler. I have a new goal.
Screw retirement I want to be able to afford to work for these guys. My kind of people. Once upon a time I knew how to silver braze. I made tooling back then. Man I miss that smell of cutting oil and kerosene that a machine shop oozes so much you end up wearing the odor like a cologne after ten hours in the mist.
Anyway,

The old knee seems to be responding to my neglect. That means Saturday I will go for a light spin and we'll just see what is what. No chasing passers or attacking hills. This'll be middle ring, bottom of the block stuff. Goal is The Pond and back. I'll take my time. I'll take Paul's route and ignore the speedometer and turn off the tracking.

I need a bell.

If you're willing to fork over a $20 spot you can get coverage on Universal.

Hmm,
Tour of California

Universal Sports Channel is owned by NBC along with Versus.

lovely.
Our provider at&t U-verse doesn't have this.
So, I too can spend $15 for just the Giro?
Can't figure out if they want to sell season passes like MotoGP, or just pay by the drink.

At least I can watch hockey in the summer and bullriding and NASCAR and fishing, Cage fighting, now there's a good idea. You know all the really popular sports.

Some days I just want to kick some fat network guy in the nuts. Won't get me coverage but it will make me feel better for a few minutes.
