Oh I'd have stopped there any time. Looks like a lovely run and great company.
We have a 1908 steamboat in my home town too, always a treat to see or board.

I actually meant Marqueemoons stop by the Godmobiles. They just scream 'keep peddlin' son' to me.

Of course! I need to pay more attention- and start working on my bikes :). If I find some spare time I`ll send you a story from that boat ride...:geek:

Agree with you on the godmobiles by the way.. That is when you wish you had electric assist..:lol:

Thanks for the Montague pics! I just picked up an MX off Craigslist about a month ago and am loving it!

Lovely bike! Judging by those vehicles in the background, you've got some bizarre neighbours.

This is believed to be a rare and perhaps singular mutation of the phillipistwentius... this colouration has never been seen in the wild and with use of a tracking tag have discovered that this individual has travelled as far south as Oregon and then returned to the northern reaches of Canada in the springtime. Physiology suggest that at some point the phillipis was able to breed with a wild nishiki.

It is most likely sterile and will be unable to interbreed.

The ability of the conseres fridayus to build a cocoon around itself and hitch a ride with other animals and humans seems to be a method for them to expand their range and habitat without expending undue amounts of energy.

They can remain cocooned for extremely long periods of time and will emerge when they sense the environment is favourable.

parva rota erucae suspensionis moultonis moultonis... although one of the oldest examples at the research centre (and a newer arrival) this old buck (you can tell by the horns) has been given a new lease on life through an organ transplant program which allows him to move about comfortably and actually remain competitive with much younger specimens.

At 47 years old this moultonis moultonis maintains a high degree of agility and stamina and ongoing observations suggest that it is not a predator but more like a sight hound in that it seems compelled to chase down every other bicycle it sees and they seeem to do this for amusement more than anything else.

Two conseres fridayus flew into PDX yesterday and survived the cocoon handling ordeal intact. This week they will explore Eugene's bike paths while also attending the NCAA track and field championship :thumb: ... Tom

I have been extremely happy with the Capreo. It is very quiet and always shifts smoothly - love the range but might try to go just a bit lower soon for weekend riding in the Western Kanagawa hills. Previous to this `09 Curve SL I had the `07 model with SA 5 speed hub which was a finicky PITA IMO. The Capreo requires only half a barrel adjuster turn every 6 months or so - and had to have the cassette tightened last month (after 4 years).
