    Yeah, I've been thinking about it and I've come to the conclusion that being an adult isn't going to work for me.

My wife took it to UT sometimes on her commute as well. In fact, I just showed her this pic and she says "hey that's the guy that parked outside behind SERF." If you're him, my wife was the one with the Evel Knievel seat. So, maybe that's you, or someone else has a bike that looks like yours too.
    Either way.
    For my commute from the Bearden area I used to take Papermill to the Papermill Bluff GWY-> Wesigarber GWY -> Middlebrook Pike -> Jean-Teague GWY -> Ten Mile Creek GWY and up Cedar Bluff. Some of the time I'd go from there to Karns as well. Lots of hills - that slog up Middlebrook after the Kroger is just ohmygod.

    Anyway, great to see other K-ville folks. We lived there for 3 years and just moved to Houston in September. We miss it a lot. Hope the guys at Bearden Bike & Trail are still doing great. Mail me some Tomato Head?

    If the freeways down here looked like that at rush hour, I would almost be tempted to drive.

    Almost.
    As much as you paid for that Beemer [Mercedies, Audi, Escalade], I'm surprised it didn't come equipped with turn signals.

    Very cool! I know the bike that your wife is talking about, but it's not me! I think the owner of that one is a professor. I'm a lowly grad student.

    Your commute sounds pretty good. You're right though that it is a hilly one. It's hard to ride around Knoxville without a hilly ride.

    I'll only be down here for another several months before moving up to Boston this summer. I'm excited to head home to Southern New England, but I will miss Knoxville. This is a good place.

    If I thought I could get you a pizza without ruining it I'd send one!

    What the heck are you talking about? Look at all that traffic. I count at least 15 cars that I can see in just one shot. That's way more than twice as many cars as I see on my entire half hour drive going to work.

    oh hey an Xtracycle FreeRadical attachment/conversion! I just discovered these things yesterday, and would very much like to convert my old KHS MTB. How do you like it? Do you have any more details on your bike?

    I have one, and love it. You can build it up as a heavyweight hauler -- or just add minimal accessories and keep it light and fast. I rode mine 15 miles yesterday. The long wheelbase is a joy.

    Here's its first incarnation, as an extra stable platform for child hauling.

    The xtracycle is really great. It adds so much versatility to the bike. If you ever have to lift your bike alot or have limited storage space they are a huge hassle. For a garage kept bike that gets used as a hauler, tourer, etc. they are a really smart product. I recommend it if you have the space, and the bike to spare. They ride wonderfully and can carry just about anything that would be reasonable to carry on a bike without adding a whole ton of weight too if that is a concern.

    I was thinking of converting my kid's trailer into a cargo trailer, but I'd rather have the Xtracycle conversion.

    I took a small detour on the way to work the other day to try and appreciate the uniqueness of my area.

    Brilliant!
