    I plan to ride northeast-bound on the trail for about an hour, then turn around and be back around 11. Unless I have my new road bike by then, I'll be on a hybrid and probably run an average pace of about 10-12 miles per hour. Whoever shows up, we'll stick together for a leisurely stroll for anyone who feels like coming along.

    If it's raining, I'll call it off. Indian creek trail gets ridiculously messy when it rains.
    Doh, i'd like to join ya, but i have to be at Church by noon, and i'll have haul my behind from KCK back to Lawrence...

    There are some nice rides around Pittsburg. Many different options where you can go out for 10 - 20 miles or 30 - 40 without much traffic. Also there are some nice DIY century routs that are fun.

    I'll only have a few hours to ride, which is why I've kinda got my own thing going on. My wife and I are going fishing once she gets off work at noon.

    Last saturday was our anniversary. Anniverary date? Fishing all until dusk, then heading to Powell Observatory to go look through their ginormous 30" Telescope and check out the celestial objects in all their magnificent glory. All of this was at her behest. I <3 my wife. This saturday will bring more cycling and fishing. What more could I ask for?

    I just sold my Escort and put most of the cash down on my new Trek 1200 (about 40% of the value as a deposit)

    Hopefully, I should have the rest of the cash drummed up in the next two months, or I might get financed for it.

    I'm in Kansas City, Kansas. Sorry to say i did not ride today. I have seen quite a few cyclist on Merriam Lane/The boulevard though. That road would be nice with a bike lane if kcks had any money to do such a thing. As is i ride out into JoCo were i think i might have a better chance of not getting hit.

    Heh! I just road the boulevard into Olathe again last night. Well... I used the boulevard. It doesn't go all the way to Olathe.

    Y'all probably go by my house when you ride down the Boulevard. So if you see a guy near Strasser Hardware walking 2 greyhounds, one small, one large, and he waves at you on your bike, its not just a crazy guy but a fellow biker.

    I would agree that the further west you get on Merriam lane, the more narrow it gets. I used to commute to Foxridge Dr. via Southwest Blvd and I loved the variation of slight hills and curves, I called it my Time Trial, because it was 14 minutes and seemed just like the time trials that you see in the Pro Bike Races, just me against the clock. I would turn at the house of rocks and skirt under I-35 and then I'd be at work.
    Fixed or Free, just ride your bike!

    Representing Bike source!!! I'm in Overland Park. Gotta say my favorite ride is going out to lawrence, and having my girlfriend bring me back... ha. That or sante fe into olathe, turns into kc rode, on to poplar and out around gardner, 175th to pflumn and back home to 103rd and quivira. The latter is a little more flat, going anywhere out west gets a little hilly... If you want a good hilly ride, ride out by shawnee mission park, head north and west into bonner springs and back through desoto... thats a hell of a ride...

    If anybody needs some work done/new bike/accesories/clothing/nutrition or anyhting else you need come to bike source and check it out!

    Do you think you guys will get your Wednesday mid-day ride in tomorrow? I was planning on coming out and trying it, the weather looks to complicate it though.

    Yeah..i need a New Bike. - Newer Bike...2006 2005 - they all work...
    Only Sunflower & Cycle Works here...prices are way crazy...do you have employee discount??/

    Help a poor graduate student here! PLEASE...

    I also have a question...
    What happens to the older bikes that do not get sold. I mean, bike companies do not make exact bike numbers right? They get put into cold storage? Or they get stripped down, repainted, and re-fitted with new parts for the new season??

    1. I get a mad crazy employee discount, but i used alot of my employee purchases like frames and shimano on my new S-Works... ha
    2. I'm on my way to becoming a student at ku, so i feel you.
    3. We still have some 04 serotta's on the floor, maybe even an 03 i think... we just sell them, mark down, right now you can get one at BELOW cost i believe... we're trying desperately to get them out the door to make some room for new specialized stuff, so come ask about the serotta frames and what kinda deal you can get!

    All 06's are on sale... We've got a nice allez i think with ultegra for $1,800 right now...

    1. Dude! - Can you be my friend?? So i can get some employee discounts from you?
    2. You're gonna be a student at KU? You transferring? You're starting freshman? Grad school??
    3. Hmm, you'll have to enlighten me on the Serotta's i've no idea what kinda bikes they are. All i see here are Treks, Giants, Specialized, Lemonds... shows you how ignorant i am about the biking market.
    "Tell me more about the Serotta bikes you carry...., please..."

    $1,800... hmm....outta my range...wayyyy out....poor student here!

    Hey, so you know the Seaman's? You guys don't carry bebop pedals do you? I'm going to be getting some of those in the next week or so and would love to get them locally, well...semi-local

    But I'll need some new shoes What brand of shoes do you guys carry over there? Looks like Sunflower only has Shimano, Specialized, Pearl...not that those are bad....just want to see as many as I can before buying.

    SWEET!
    So you're gonna join the Collegiate Cycling Team here? I think KU is hosting the NCAA championships again.. so you should come by Lawrence to check out the races here!

    Thanks for helping me find out!

    I know of the Seamans, and as far as the pedals, i just sent a message to someone asking if we carry them. I've never seen them in there but tht doesn't mean they're not there, i find new **** everyday! And as far as shoes, we carry about the same: Specialized, Pearl, and Shimano. But dude, the Specialized shoes are bad ass, you should give them a shot. I dont know how you could want anything else.

    I plan to ride for the collegiate team. I ride to lawrence every now and then to visit my girlfriend and on one occasion i ran into Christian Beer, the VP for the club. My step-dad helps run the NCAA race every year, I plan to be down for a little while, except I've gotta work that day I'm sure.

    Hope to see you guys in the shop! I'll be there friday till 8, saturday 10-4, sunday 12-5... just ask for wacker if you come in!

    This is how I got a few hundred off on my new '06 Trek 1200.

    Which, by the way, I commuted on this morning. In the rain. *grumble*

    I like your efforts to commute by bike axOn. I might know who you are if i see you. I live along Merriam Lane and try to ride for an hour before work a few times a week. I would try the commute thing again but i do service work out of a truck. I do a few errands now and then though and want to set up a beater appropriate for errands in my neighborhood.
