Thats pretty much it. Bars need to be taped as well I believe. Someone got made at me for not having them taped.

Edit: Also... does anyone know a guy in St. Pete with a blue track bike, white lettering, and white-taped bullhorns? I saw him riding today when I was down there (I called you Robb...) today and freaked. Really nice bike he has.
that guy's a bit of a weirdo. i've seen him two or three times at the bar and he just hangs by himself. kinda a mystery guy..but his bike is pretty sick. it's one of those blue olmo frames.

Yea... his bike was gorgeous. Thanks for letting me know it is an Olmo. I was wondering.

ummm i don't know if his name is matt. i tried talking to him the first time i saw him at the emerald and knew it was his bike because he had a mess bag on. he just instantly started bragging about how expensive his dura ace cranks are and then for the rest of the night kept handing me and the people i was with stick figure drawings of ourselves.

fri night..probably the emerald? i'm thinking this saturday will be a blast at the orpheum since it's the holidays and everyone is in town.

That Christmas card was amazing Robb. I can't believe you put Peggy through that ****. Haha.

I just keep watching it and I laugh every single time. What a fool.

Hey Luke.. why do you have to have your bars taped at BP? just curious..

I'll know my itinerary better later in the month but so far it looks like I'll be in Sarasota from the 20th-26th. I know I won't be bringing a bike though. If someone could be so kind as to lend me something to ride, I'll definitely get my brother to drive me up for a day.

How tall are you?

Edit: Sara... i'm not sure if it a requirement or not, but someone might get mad. Safety issues. It is easier to slip without tape.

Question for you know Sara: Is Carrie coming this way next week? She won't answer me myspace.

I'm 5'4''.. Just kidding..

Carrie is already in Tampa. You're going to hit on her, aren't you?

She was talking about riding the trail and throwing eggs at Todd's house sometime next week. Holla at her.

Also, I went to KIU and got a new headset. No Chris King but for $5 it will do for now.

I believe we were thinking about riding our bikecycles to the city under the sea. Pinellas trail to Clearwater beach, into the gulf, and then into the depths of the Atlantic.

Anyway... new headset! Yay! CK is dumb anyway. I told you not to consider one....

I have a conversion that is a 53cm. Don't have a brake for it, and I have to put it together (which isn't a problem). If you would like to use it, let me know.

That would be super-great. I ride brakeless here when it's not freezing rain so don't worry about that.
Also, depending on if I find anyone to ride with when I'm in Sarasota proper, I might even bring my shoes and pedals and go clipless-tastic.

Sorry man, I just got home from Jax. Now I have some x-mas stuff to attend to today and tomorrow. I'm hoping for Christmas Day surf too. Anyway, I could be up for some riding later in the week Tue-Fri.

I can't go Friday, as I am leaving for London then... but anytime after Tomorrow, and before Friday lets please ride.

If Carrie would answer my Myspace, i'm sure she would want to come as well.

Peggy's been in Buffalo since Thursday, so I've been staying at my parents' in Tampa. My older sister and her husband are in town, so we've been having a happy fun family time. Why, just moments ago we completed a 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle! The fun never ends here at the Hohmann household!

What's the plan for tomorrow? Peggy doesn't have to work until noon, and I haven't seen her since Thursday, so I imagine we will be making wild monkey love until at least 11:45. Now you can imagine it, too!
