    I think the worst part of the pr mess is the delayed response. They probably have a point with the roubaix wheels the place is selling, but I'd say it's also pretty obvious they're doing it wrong.
    Do you think we're gonna make it? / I don't know unless we try \ you could sit here scared to move / or we could take them by surprise

    Yea, that' exactly what I do. It usually does the trick, but this time it was a bad one. Finally cleared this morning, but I'll still go and see the doctor. I'm pretty certain I still have a small animal in there so I might as well get him to flush it out.

    Looking at the extended forecast and if this holds true it's looking like a long cold winter. We'll only be hitting -5c for the next 5-6 days with snow/flurries.

    We've been spoiled the last few years with mild Nov/Dec and winter not really arriving until Jan/Feb.

    Yes, that's why it's interesting they are not too bothered by the shop using the name.

    Ah, I thought you'd misread something in the article. I agree that it's interesting though. It probably does make it clear though, that since theyve allowed their use of the name to fall pretty muich to obscurity, Specialized has to be paying them bookoo-bucks for that license. It's nice though that someone directly involved here, stepped in with some common sense and allowed the use. The fact that they went so far as to claim that the copyright was inappropriate in the first place is pretty interesting too.

    I clicked the year in review thing on FB. It pulls up all sorts of somewhat random stuff as a summary of 2013 (with a disturbing amount of bike related content), this one I actually agree was significant.

    Just got back from the doctor. The xray was clean and she diagnosed me with a big bruise on my butt and a strained hip flexor. Some would say stupid injuries for a 48 y/o to be getting screwing around racing bicycles. A guy with me in the waiting room told me how getting old sucked and was carrying oxygen and using a cane. He was 51.

    I am going to keep riding/racing the crap out of my bicycles.
