    Lance and I

    I was watching the local news tonight and found out that Lance has good taste,he bought a bike made by Sam Whittingham at the Portland bike show.I was first though as I had Sam make me a tourer a couple of years ago and I didn't pay as much as Lance. Story in one of the local rags can be found here, http://www.canada.com/vancouversun/n...3-7d32e50219d5 A picture of my bike from Sam's website, http://www.timetogetnaked.com/images...tter%20013.jpg I might be just a touched biased but I think that Samantha (I named her after her dad) is nicer than Lance's new bike.

    Very nice bike--although when I saw timetogetnaked.com I was kinda hoping for something a little different.

    Case ya didn't know, Sam is something a little different himself. Like the fastest unpaced cyclist on the planet - something on the order of 80+ mph for 200m. Yes, on flat ground. In a streamlined recumbent. Check out the "Go Sam Go" link at timetogetnaked.com. Most impressive.

    To have Lance Armstrong buy your bike for $12,000 and have to tell Robin Williams sorry, what a sales dream. Yours may look better than Lance's, but I'll bet his is faster.

    Lance is going to be here in Madison next Tuesday, at a rally to ban smoking in all public buildings and retail establishments, including taverns.

    Well, I was referring to the bike, not to Lance.
