It's not just a stereotype?!

Working on getting the non-drive side pedal off the (15 YO) commuter. It's really putting up a fight.

You'll get through it, love. Only a couple of days and you can rest and relax.

I'm quite certain I saw somebody with a titanium frame, some kind of weight weenie fork, all SRAM Red groupset, KCNC skewers, aerospoke front, spinnergy rev-X rear and platform pedals with no straps or clips and a rear reflector ride by me.

now, while I normally don't question people's motives behind their bikes... why use aerospoke and rev-X when a set of Zipp 404 are lighter, more aero and stronger... oh the mysteries.

Too bad there was no one around with a video camera this morning when I got my rear wheel stuck in the elevator. As a bonus I was carrying a cup of coffee which got spilled onto the front brake and hub.

There's a storm raging outside and a pot of spicy 12 bean soup simmering away on the top of the stove... the smell is heavenly.

Getting very frustrated with work. Not sure if I should post that, especially while I'm at work, but such is the level of my frustration.

Just mounted a fresh set of Conti 4000S' with matching Conti race tubes, whatever that means. I took the bike out for a midnight stroll through the neighborhood. The gripping in fast cornering is very impressive, I kept pushing the limit and the tires kept surprising me.

Can't wait to get on the road!!!

The brand of coffee I drink hates either me, or starched shirts or both. Recently, I had to change shirts three times in one morning due to coffee spills. Got dressed, spilt coffee down shirt before leaving. Changed shirts. Left for work. While getting out of car, spilt coffee down front of shirt. This was all made possible since I forgot to click the valve shut on my OXO travel cup (this thing rocks, you coffee drinking drivers all need one). Walked to the dry cleaners in the lobby of the building to pick up some shirts I had there, and changed one last time.

Did not get my real wheel stuck in the elevator, though on Monday night leaving Celebrate Recovery at church, I walked into an elevator while texting as the doors were closing and got slammed pretty hard. The two women already in the elevator found this quite amusing. I do not blame them.

Been riding the MTB to my kids' school this week, as the dad's den is opening doors in the car pool lane. I keep forgetting that it does not corner like the roadie when I get out of the bike lane and into normal traffic to turn into our neighborhood. 20 mph corners on MTB tires can be a bit dicey.

I ordered a new smartphone online and it'll be here tomorrow.

Does this make my old one a dumbphone?
