    It...it happened...I don't believe it...

    I'm in shock. I watched stage 19 of the Tour de Fruitcake today the final Time Trial, and I'm hooked. I can't wait for the final stage. I can name the top ten riders. I want a road bike.

    Where's my razor, dammit?

    I could ask you the same thing. Remember, I still don't own a road bike. Yet.

    Heh. You're excited because now you're startin' to see the no-names who love cycling, and are willing to win or lose based on their own non-enhanced performances.

    I'm tapin' coverage from CBS tomorrow. I hope I'm gettin' in a ride while it's on, and then I'll watch the coverage when I get home from my afternoon appt.

    Congrats, Crank. You will never regret road-ridin'. It's a very therapeutic and calmin' thing. Unless you're racin' or in a TT.

    Congrats on gettin' the cast off, too!

    You really are bored, aren't you?

    Talking about buying a road bike is the first conversation amongst 3 conversations that leads you to being OCP..
    One year from now you are going to be like Damn Ti and Carbon Fibre are really cool and then you are going to end up fussing over how heavy you carbon fiber water cages are..

    Edit.. I was kidding.. ..

    What Levi Leipheimer did today was superhuman. Hats off to Cadel Evans for being able to respond in the last 5 k. Many would have wilted under the pressure. None of the top three did and tomorrow is going to be a fun stage to watch, esp. the last few laps on the Champs Elysees.

    Steel is real and unless you are racing, you don't need all the high dollar, high bling stuff. Steel or aluminum will serve you fine.

    I know where I'll be tomorrow am! Cup of coffee next to the monitor, race on thru computer and me fighting with the ultimate bad computer chair that ohhh, so ever slowly lets you wilt down to chin level to the keyboard.

    But I'll be watching. Why not. It's a bike race - and I enjoy bike races. And Strawberry Eggo waffles with my coffee

    Being a single person, and responsible, I watch different people's houses when they vaca. This is one of my long time friends - and I've stuck in the past (like in a bad snowstorm where even I didn't want to venture out - no matter how much I like to winter ride) - and I raided her freezer. And felt bad - so I replaced everything.

    hehe, happened to mention it and she was taken aback because I could have access to everything - absolutely no problem. Still, since I'm being paid for this - I just really try not eat her foods.

    So what does she do this time --- she leaves this big note - "Basement freezer is stuffed full of assorted flavors of waffles for you - now eat and enjoy". I luv my friend - she stuffed the freezer full of at least 15 boxes of assorted eggo waffles for me. Hmmmmm 190 cal/2 waffles .... But still. I'm sitting on a moonshine pile-o-waffles for a couple of weeks and I'm luvin it.

Just saying that for basic road riding, it is not needed.
