look on the bright side-if that watermelon was in the front your unit would be that colour. Oddly enough I know this from 2 wheeled experience

Lifetime warranty with no rider weight limit.

Wonder how long it'll take me to make one look like blackmamba's bike?

I wonder what the weight limits are? Reminds me of the old R1tchey P22's that had a rider weight limit sticker on the top tube. I would have had to cut off a leg to meet it.

TT in Monacco looks like racing Fomula 1 cars in a maze.. lots of up and down, blind corners and hairpin turns.

Have we decided on which thread we'll be chatting about the tour, yet? I suppose 10th with a 20'ish second deficit to Contador and Kloden isn't a big deal after only a single stage. My guess is that it was a mistake to go out early. LA is a consummate time trialist, but it has to be easier to find that extra 5% when you know the times you have to beat and you've got a coach in your ear telling you exactly how much faster or slower you need to go in order to stay on top. He's not used to going out early in any time trial. I really wanted him to come out dominant. That 18 second gap to Cancellara isn't a big deal, but I wish he was closer to Contador and Kloden, if only so that he doesn't wind up riding as a domestique. It's gonna be hard to break away and find that extra time when the guys he has to catch up to are on his team.

I have finally managed to get my DVR to only record one airing of the TDF and the one in HD, so in a half hour or so I can watch stage two while I try in vain to get my old DVD burner in operating order again so I can make some data back ups.

Re-routed some brake cables and the travel lock on the MTB yesterday. Gott to feeliing my oats and thought I'd do the fuel level adjust on the big GS. I was reminded I had not yet mended sufficinetly about the time I went to lift the half full 8 gallon tank... Buttoned it back up and went and took a pain pill and fell asleep on the couch watching the prologue...

Maybe next weekend I can go for an easy spin on the MTB on flat ground. No lifting or tugging on the bars.

Had a whole weekend of perfect weather and good riding.

I got a 40 mile beer run in on Friday. Saturday I went down and did some trail work and preriding on the Miner's Revenge course. Went out just to go futz around for a bit this morning and ended up going 90 miles around the Sturgeon River Gorge Wilderness Area.


One last plug for Miner's Revenge: If you can make it at all and are kind of bored with the terrain in most XC races, you need to get here. There is nothing else like this. http://www.minersrevenge.com/
