Temps have dropped this week and I've turned my attention towards my latest find, a Schwinn Crosscut. Overhauled it, and replaced the Glenn bar and gripshifts with drops for a CX build. My progress as of late last night. I still need 7 spd SIS bar ends. May have to go 8 spd and set to friction.

12 hours for 91#'s. Wild pig harvested the weekend before about two miles away from the party.

Incredibly tasty and the pot luck sides were amazing.

Just got back from a 30 miler this morning w/ fellow BF'er Iluvnoise. Nice rolling hills through horse farms and a State park as well. Of course, I took no pictures and only remembered to on my way home. Train station shot bellow. -holiday76 was supposed to come along but he was too hung over......

Had a great day today!!! I drove up to Cleveland to torture myself doing my first-ever cyclocross race. The venue is a park right next to downtown Cleveland, including a run out the pier to the abandoned USCG station.

Are C&V airplanes allowed? The B-17 Yankee Lady was in town for the weekend, along with a B-25, which was flying over in the morning. I think the B-17 flew over as my race was starting, but I was in the middle of a pack, kind of busy, and couldn't look up.
After my race, (once I could talk again) a buddy called from the marina about a mile down the road, so I rode over there and went sailing for a couple hours for the first time in ~15 years.
Bad picture, but you can see Browns stadium with the B-17 just above the horizon. Race venue is just about where the B-17 is in this shot.

Hey, I recognize that train station! Good ride this morning, man. Here's one I took down at the park a few weekends ago with my camera phone:

^ Nice shots!

Rock was provided by J. Roddy Walston & The Business night before last. Great weather, boogie woogie piano, bourbon and guitar solos that kick you in the face.

Bad kitty! I turn my back for a second and my cat helps herself to my water. And yes, that's Bikes Direct in the background.

And take note of the pump bike stand. Wasn't someone here or in a different section looking for a quick side stand idea?

Seen on my way into work this morning. At first I thought someone shredded through these bikes to strip them for parts, but then I noticed the frames are locked up through the BB shell. I'm full of questions...
