Ok sweet. I was thinking maybe just to stop buy for a little on the way up there, like a couple hours. We could do some laps somewhere and shizzle. I'll message you when i'm about to come. I'm also going to steal the bag... wait? what? I mean deal the swag.

Awesome. There's a few tracks around, and I'm sure we could find at least one that's empty-ish.

Bag's up for grabs for a disc wheel rear trispoke front combo... maybe.

let me paint it and find a nice cog and lock ring for it and id do it and i have a green tubular for it so a little green will most likely end up in the color scheme and I'm thinking i might put a stencil of Notorious B.I.G on one side and 2pac on the other side a yeah that's out there i no and may be you can make a bag to match

You kids are nuts! Disc wheels and trispokes on the 'Nago - I'd never dream of it! I'm building up a McGrath Bicycles high performance time trial machine to win a bet. Or perhaps it's just because I'm obsessive. Either way, I figure wheels will be the hardest part to get a hold of.

Put a fork for 20'' wheels on that, and then take my mags . 700c in the rear, 20'' up front. True bling.

I bet him I'd win the Gainesville time trial next year if he'd build me a time trial/pursuit frame. Now I've actually got to get into shape. It's going to be a Yamaguchi inspired frame - filet brazed aero tubing, curved seat tube, rear facing track ends with a derailleur hanger, etc. It'll be a beast. Hopefully he'll finish it sometime this summer.

They're a pain to come by here in Gainesville. I don't think any of the shops have any laying around in their back rooms at least... I was about to resort to ebay.

Robb, are you home?

Corey...obviously a suck a$$ thing that happened to you, but your anger doesn't do anything to those idiots. It only gets you worked up. Let it roll off your back, they probably paid a ridiculous amount of money for watered down beer that night and went home alone (again). Rise above it brother.

On a seperate, but somewhat related issue...it's quite nice outside, anyone want to ride?

i let my friend ride my bike for 2 mins after the bars got out lastnight and she somehow managed to rip a spoke out of the front hub...like a chunk of the hub got ripped out with the spoke. hopefully this type of hub failure is under warranty.

LOL, nice Corey. I see you found Mike Giant's "Path_Goal" image. You should buy his print, I got it a few weeks back and it's amazing.

I seem to recall someone having a custom mess bag with that image...hmmm, who was that? You should try to find out who it was and buy it from them.
