Holy cow Vance. Did you have to get a special frame, or was there something made that worked for you? I don't remember your height, but I thought you were over 6'6".

Now about them pedals... Gotta get you some 'real' mtn pedals that'll help keep the bike under you when yer off-roading. DAMHIK how easy it is to slip offa them flat pedals yer riding once the trail gets technical.

I hope Kurt gets his Team Kiss picture posted later.
PAul and I will be ready. I may have a new plastic bike to ride by then. Check that. I'd better have worn out several sets of tires on a new plastic bike by then.

My brother sent me a couple of CD's of this band we were going to go see..

Our band played RABGRAI in Red Oak, and sold some of our new released CD's, and a few t-shirts.

I remember you posting that when I was thinking I was going. I missed a lot of cool this year I expect.

Ah well, there is a plan being hatched for next year.

Think, epic adv 2-wheeled stupidity...

Riding in Tahoe

Well it's my third day of riding from Fallen Leaf Lake in Lake Tahoe, and I decided to do a lap of the lake. From Fallen Leaf Lake, around Lake Tahoe and back, my trusty Garmin 305 told me the following:

82.58 miles, 6223 feet of elevation gained, and taken with a grain of salt...4693 calories consumed. This is my first time in Tahoe, and I'm really enjoying the experience.

I need food.

Now that looks interesting!!! My luck would be an Iowa cross wind would take over and throw me into a corn field.

Anybody know of any closeouts on bike shorts? I've always been able to find deals on them for $25 or less, but after perusing a couple of sites prices seem to have gone up over the past couple of years. Bike gear is such a rip.

You'll get what you pay for.
