"Oh how pretty..."

"...what a cool looking spider web on my spokes.....But how can he survive me riding all this time in 104 degree weather?....Wait...Why is the pattern so...so...OFF? Hey wait!! Why does my bike smell...FRUITY??"


IT'S GUM!!!!


All over the spokes, the saddle bag, the brakes, frame, the derailleur, the cassette!!!! AUGGHHH!!!

This has to be the worst nightmare for a person with OCD!!!

Oh, Siu, I'm sorry. I didn't know I only ride mountain bikes. Even if I am in love with Lowcel's IF Crown Jewel.

Peanut butter Siu - if it works on hair, it should work on your bike. And afterwards it will smell really good!

My friend had to use the bathroom so we stopped by this school that keeps the bathrooms open. I had my shades on and where we went it was covered - I was in semi darkness.

It's an elementary school so I'm assuming that the gum must have come from there. Ya know...kids spitting gum out onto the ground before they go to class.

Whew! Crisis averted! Yay, Nephew Sean!

Sorry to hear about that, Siu. I've never had that happen to me, and it would never have occurred to me to warn you about such.

But it appears that everything worked out ok.

I'm going to give Scott the "Vivian" treatment before my next TT Wednesday evening. Maybe he'll feel nice and new, and will roll a little faster.

I told you to sit down and just let it be dirty for a sec Siu, just relax and see how long you can go. I know you can do it.

Plus watermelon bubbalicious is like the nicest fragrance ever. I wish they'd make a males colone for that.

One night I stopped and got off the bike on the side of the road in the dark. On the way home I was riding through farm country and I kept thinking all the farms had a lot of manure in the fields. When I got home I walked into the porch, through the kitchen, and on the rug in the living room. Then I realized the smell was on my foot, and spread evenly over the pedal and my house !!

If it makes you feel any better Siu, I once rode over a section of pavement that had been freshly painted - without the courtesy of warning signs being posted - resulting in a small splattering of orange dots on my bike's down tube and the underside of the chainstays.
