You know who you are

No mention made in any of his posts but spied this in a reply on another thread

So Own up- You know who you are--and a couple of hours past your ride time and no posting about the new bike yet.




Needless to say my new bike is on the roof of my car in the parking lot, and my kit is under my desk. C'mon 5:00!!!

Currently it looks like these temps are going to stick around through the weekend, though it's going to get windy, and the chance of precip increases, but we're definitely on a trend that I'm liking!

Ya just gotta be prepared to carpe that ol' diem when the good days pop up..


Pics required along with the ride report.

I just PM'd and waxed mine! Does that count? Rode over to my ridin buddy, a few blocks away. Now, he's gotta do the same thing.........

Weather is in the 50s today, and lots more promised......

I even rinsed, and refilled all my water bottles, and chucked 'em in the fridge......

Heh, heh...

Pics to be taken on the ride...which as of this moment is still 39 minutes off (A clock-watcher? Who, me??)

I also have to take a shot of the bike where it currently resides. My son asked me why it wasn't in the garage last night. Marcy is out of town for a week at a conference, and I explained that while she's gone, I'm temporarily a bachelor, and like other bachelors, I'm keeping my bike in the living roomwhere it belongs!!

One disappointment is that after spending more than an hour on the fitting, the LBS discovered that they don't have an appropriate stem in any of their three stores, and it's on temporary back-order from Specialized. Won't have it for about 3 weeks <grrr....>

I moved the seat up about 15mm to temporarily compensate some until the new stem comes in.
