And Baltimore is a fine city. It is full of Punk and goodness. And the Talking Head has Naty Boh. And requires you to go up and down too many stairs to find the rest room. The land of pleasant living. And i am going to be so drunk in the morning. I mean hung over. Maybe drunk too. And my buddy Joe goes, "dude, i have to pee so bad, i have the smallest bladder." And i go, "me too man!!" And he says, "you must be a libra." Well damn if he wasn't right.
Dude, it sounds like you're mixing the Percocet and sauce again .... ? I'm best on a 50-52cm frame - CP was kinda um, not really pushy, but not really comfortable either. Damn if they don't have some NICE bikes there though. Prices were still steep, even on some of the used ones. I dropped an ebay bid on a bike in MD. Some odd 50cm bike with downtube shifters, <$100, can't beat that, I hope it stays low.

Spud: I think we need to change your name to Thor. Next time we need to put a wrist strap on Mjollnir.

Tink, thanks for saving us from the tv-news-messenger guy too - polo, living on the edge even when you're not in the game...

speaking of talking ****, whose coming to Monster Track next month? allie, you ride brakeless should be easy for you, Amanda? Dave? J5? Nathan? fixed brakeless to compete, or just run the course or work a checkpoint and have fun.

March 4th, we got housing all lined up. Bus or carpool, it wont cost much either way.

Sometimes you eat the handlebar andÖsometimes the handlebar, well, he eats you.

BoogerBike, 16+, spin it until your knee is ready

Damn, it sounds like I missed a good night of fun. Last minute drives to Newport News suck.

Spud, I got back this evening and truing wheels to get my mind off work and the big accident that I missed on the drive back, so I'll catch up with you on the bars later man.

Allie, did you say you had a bike in Richmond and you have a problem getting there to pick it up? Richmond is on the way to Newport News, so I past it there twice a month... if you can make arrangements, we can work something out.

I'm thinking i was running about 38/14 or 48/18. I don't know if that makes any sense. I was thinking of running 46/16-17 flip flop.

enjoy, all you could want to know.

And as you all know, the Baltimore Shock Trauma is next Saturday.
It should be a fine race in one very fine city.
Baltimore is the birthplace of John Waters and Naty Boh.
and illegal drugs. probably
But seriously people, we need to pillage this town.

it's not that i have a problem getting there to pick it up. it's the person whose apartment i need to get it from. if it was as easy as asking you to pick it up then i would.

Stop it! I'm really cheesed that I'll be missing Monster Track, darn you lucky pirates!
Therefore, must go to Shock Trauma

Booger, the 46-16/17 is a great idea (IMHO). You can always get a 15 when your knee gets better.

Watchitburn, understand the situation, but if it is your bike (but not a gift from said person), you have the right to take it home! Holding someone's bike is just WRONG
