Aww hell.

Best thing I can say is he died with his running shoes on.

Played hooky from work this AM.

Got the new-to-me King HS in.

Got the Access mtn frame I'm selling stripped and I have it in a box. Still need to pack said box, but the parts are off and are clean.

I found a nifty flexible inline cable adjuster doo-flippy at an LBS. They gave it to me 'cause they didn't know WTF it was. That's gonna go on the Crosshairs as soon as I need bar tape. Till then, the cable/housing that are on there are doing just fine. (the new adjuster is about 1cm shorter than the old, necessitating a re-cable and house )

What else. Oh, pics of the Spinergy wheels I have for sale and the Access frame are taken. Hafta download em and send em to those that have requested em.

Oh, and I went for a ride! Yeah, no shite. Gummee! rode for the first time in about a week. I've been running tho, so don't too much! Last time I went out riding, my right knee acted up. Did again today. Gotta look at my cleat placement, etc. I LIKE having knees.

That's all that's fit to print.

RIP Mr Larsen.

There certainly doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to tragedies such as this. 39 ? No age to die for sure.

Gummee, cRAsH and Perry.

Thank you for all of the help (Via pm's and phone calls...)

Here is the bike I bought today:

2008 Raleigh XXIX All Mountain single speed.



Has the 32 spokes and 29 inch wheels.

Has disc brakes.

The single speed gearing choice they made is about perfect for most of the riding I do with the family...and the bike feels excellent ripping down the trails too.

XL frame fits just right.

Very long seat post for road spins...

Seems very tough and well put together.

Brakes are unfreakingbelievable...but this is my first disc brake bike and I kinda expected as much from them.

The same bike this year (2009 model) costs over $800.00.

I got last years in Blue (exactly like the pic) for $650.00 out the door with 2 free water bottles, baskets and a pro tool that fits all of the allens.

Thanks much for all of your help.

Vance

Considering I just sold my mtn frame in the Flea Market, I'll hafta let y'all guess.

I'm torn between an Anthem and a FSR. I 'work' for a Specialized dealer, so...

Saddles are all about where yer sit bones hit. They can be tiny or huge, it all depends on where yer bones are.

You may be better off with the wimmen's seats there gorilla boy!
