Boulder pwns.

I'm so going to school there.

They have some friggin' awesome bike shops in the area.

I got to ride a Litespeed Vortex while I was there.

The shop gave me some Litespeed socks.

Oh, the bike chews.

It's overpriced, flimsy, and ugly.

But Boulder... Boulder is cool...

Well the Vortex is, in person.

It just looks goofy with the way the tubes are shaped.

I went to school in Canada for 8 years, Tim Hortons are everywhere, I don't drink, and I get my Pogos in the mail.

Yeah, that's ****ing Boulder to you, buddy.

The weather sucked, which is why I spent most of my time inside...

Looking at bikes, of course.
