Miissing, and we hope in action: Jumbo Rider and Joe Metal

There's been no word on Big Liberty Blue or the Metalcycle. Have Jumbo and Joe gone on a long trip far away from Internet access? Have they become lost amid the cornfields of the Midwest? WHERE ARE THEY!?

I was just thinking about Jumbo last night, and wondering how he is. Hopefully our man Jumbo is still around!?

If he's not, I want his bike.
It's all downhill from here. Except the parts that are uphill.

I can't say anything for Jumbo, but I am not missing. Things have been absolutely nuts at the lab this week and I've had to put in 12-14 hour days. This also means that I can only ride about 5 miles a day now too, because all I have time for is the commute.

Um Bdinger....please don't think of me at night.... I am fine and Liberty needs to be exercised. Last week was the weekend of birthday hell for us and I did not get any riding done. Tonight should be a great ride.

I have shied away from commuting for now. I need to build more endurance and strength. I also need to get a rack extension to keep me from kicking my Arkel pannier.
