    44x16 is a nice gear but only like 4 skid patches... that said i've ridden that ratio for a while but trying out 49x18 for the first time. liking it so far. same gear inches so don't have to change hill climing tactics so much. parker hill ave still kicks my ass though.

    If you're veggie/vegan, i believe that you can make a pretty good meal just outta the side dishes at either place-

    Also, has anyone heard from Alexi lately?

    I don't know if this interests anyone on here, but I'm going to be doing the Charlie Baker TT in Concord every Wednesday night if I can, and although I generally don't plan to be on a fixed gear for that race, they are allowed as long as you have a front brake.

    Wednesday nights, I'm planning on leaving JP around 3:30-4, to get there for 4:30-5. Reg starts at 5:30, race starts at 6:00. It's a good fun course, 9.75 miles. Top fixed gear time ever on it is something around 25-26 minutes.

    word... yah the weather was great today- i predict good times tomorrow night.

    the ride on sunday was a lot of fun- we met at copley during a parade that was going down bolyston and then got tipped off to a crit up on the tufts campus. so we rode out there and got to see 1) a wipeout into hay bales 2) some awesome dude in a stache and wool jersey win a race 3) the start and end of another 1,2,3 race where the winner lapped the pack. bbq was also had. later we rode back across the river and watched paris-roubaix + pbr (brew+pro bull riding). for me it was a nice 23mi day. good to meet ppl and match names and faces.

    man i was gonna race in that crit too. it was a two part thing (beanpot), there was a road race in grafton the day before i was in. unfortunately i was a little too tired from loading road cases and lighting rigs into semi's that night to get up for my 7am race. seriously, who thought that was a good idea. i kinda wanted to go just to see the crashes. six 90 degree turns on a one km course, damn.

    Forget Spikes. Beantown Hotdogs down the road is superior. The slaw (sp?) dog is awesome as are many others.

    does beantown dog serve veggie dogs? to brunop: i don't know a thing about the nutrition in those veggie doges, but they were delicious. probably better for you than normal- often tofu dogs are fat free.

    Beantown sells veggie dogs. Including the "Salad Dog" which is a veggie hot dog with chopped tomatoes, cucumbers, shredded lettuce and ranch dressing, which sounds pretty damn good.
