A little off-topic, but perhaps not so much.
The wife always gets the mail, but the dog had to go out pretty badly when we got home tonight, so she left the mail sitting on the ironing board. Leafing through it out of curiosity, I found a letter addressed to her from Rivendell.
Hmm.. Might Christmas involve some retrogrouch gear for this guy here?

is the gift a surprise?
is the gift a surprise?
yeah, he has no idea. He has been riding to work for the last 8months on an mtb, suspension, nobbies and platform pendals, 16mile round trip. So this is a gift to get him to love riding, so when i go down to see him (he lives in socal) we can go on rides. I think this will help him notice the benefit of road bike, with smaller harder tires, no suspension and clips, i think he will realize how inefficient a mtb setup can be for commuting.
