10 things to never say the night before a ride.

Because those could very well happen to you tomorrow on that ride.

1)I have never broke a deraillieur before.

2)I have not had a flat in well over two years <--Worst one.

3)I am on a hot streak I won't crash.

4)The chain won't break has not broke after the past year and a half.

5)Clipless pedals are easy.

6)I have a bunch of miles in, I won't bonk.

7)I am feeling great, no chance of me being sick in the morning.

8)My frame is tough it won't break.

9)I don't need a pump since I don't flat.

10)There is never huge amounts of obstacles on the selected route.

12) I won't need tights or arm/leg/knee warmers. It's supposed to be sunny and warm tomorrow.

13) I won't need my rain pants and jacket. It's supposed to be sunny and warm tomorrow.

14) I won't need my lights. The ride should only take 6 hours and it's supposed to be sunny and warm tomorrow.

15) I'll be right down in Tassie -- I've never broken a chain before in my life. (actually, I did make that mistake. )

20. My knees feel GREAT now! I'm sure a few bunnyhops and kickers wouldn't hurt them.

21. There is no-chance any fool will be on the trail just past the blind corner, It's like 7am- lets do the run TOP SPEED!

22. I haven't endo'd for months, that must mean I'm really good rider, maybe I'll push it today and go ride some rocks...

36. Maybe I should go ahead and lace up that new rim.

37. Rebuilding my fork (bleeding brakes...etc.) shouldn't take any time at all.

38. My headset was feeling good yesterday, not too tight, not too loose.
39. Nah, I don't need to put any Simple Green on my rims.
40. I hope that I don't pull a muscle taking the bike off the rack.
