For the past month and a half, on my days off, it rains. It either rains or there is ice on the ground. I try to ride on my work days, but due to my varying schedule, that is near impossible. Today it was sunny. I worked. Tomorrow it will be foggy/icy possible rain. I'm off again.

I either have a bad bad cloud following me, or somebody put a curse on me. Somebody is trying to keep me from riding. Is it you M-R--N? Did you curse me?

Thanks! You and Hi565 gave me the idea!!! Hope you don't mind...

It sounds like you might have been cursed too. If it drizzles, I decided that I might take out the beater bike instead. I have to ride. It's been too long. A couple of days ago after work I took the bike out for a little while, not much - not enough to satisfy the need, you know what I mean?

Ride in the rain. It's no big deal if you're dressed for it.

My bike's steel. I ride it in the rain anyways. Wipe it down after you're done and spray some WD-40 on the bits that would rust like the braze ons.

Holy crap the new avatar is hot. Did you do that in photoshop? I feel your pain. Except my problem is I still haven't gotten my parts from wheel world. They were supposed to come in 2-5 days and its been 13 days. I called the customer service today, and the guy put me on hold 5 separate times. Then after all that he said he would call me back, what kind of customer service says they'll call you back? he never called me back, and when I call again at about 6 oclock the guy tells me the internet store division closed at 5 oclock. ARG! Man, as soon as I get my parts Im going too the top of montara.

Toooooo late! Rust and dust, there's a reason for that. I just let it be. That's the bike with the cracked frame anyway. But my other bikes are treated like the babies that they are .

Weird? How is it weird? Look at your sig, now that's weird.

Really, though, what's weird about it? What makes it look altered?

Vector art- its a kind of art where a picture is made by solid sections filled with different colors. Its hard to describe heres an example, there are no lines its all made up by sections of color.

I tried that. They won't let me keep my bike in the warehouse (safety hazard - "someone might trip over it"- psshhh!) I'd have to sneak into the walk-in fridge....I wouldn't think that would be good for the bike. And I won't let it stay outside where all the bums hang out.

Use the beater and lock it to your boss' axle. After a few days you'll either be fired or allowed to store it inside.

Maybe they'll let you store it on the roof . I did that at another place I worked.
