So...umm, I really need to post this somewhere so that I don't explode in bike geekery all over my girlfriend. I'M GETTING A NEW BIKE. A Surly Steamroller, the frame came today but there are a couple of parts still on the way (handlebar and such). The point being I got to play with my new frame today (and don't you act like you've never done it), touch the welds, realize how much tighter this bike is going to be then my old bike. I just needed to share.
Oh, and to make this more appropriate for this forum...I've lost like 30 pounds over the last 6 months or so. I was at a very solid 285 and am now down to a weirdly svelte 250. Weird things happen when you sell your car for a motor scooter, and your geared road bike for a single speed road bike. Anyhow I'm done now, thanks for letting me vent.
