Nay. Got shutdown by security last week. Too many dumptrucks going up and down the strip. People are allowed back in at 4:30 apparently.

Time for tea/bagel.

Anyone know if Cavern is open on Monday? And when he opens (I know I can phone and I will later, I'm just not able to right now so I thought I'd try the internet)

i think i has a visit from the puncture-flat fairy last night. woke up to find my rear tire deflated this morning as i was already running behind. fixed it but it made me 40 minutes late for work. i had to ttip-toe in to my desk, boy.

TJ - yes the midge bars are intetesting, and particuarly usefull if you set them up right (ie- higher the better), particularly on an off road bike or at least one with which you do a lot of climbing.

Anyone else use time pedals and have problems with disengagement? i've accidentally popped out of mine several times recently while grunting up steep inclines.

On a vaguely related note, anyone have experience w/ Time ATAC XEs? I've been debating those over the XSs or other brands (Crank Bros Candy SLs, Shimano M540s, etc.)

The only time I've had troubles coming out of my ATACs are when the cleats are worn and need replacing.
I'm looking at putting a cross style setup on my MTN bike. It doesn't go off road too often and I'm starting to run out of gears.

my $0.02 is that despite the issues i'm having with mine (they are a much older set of aliums) i'd still pick time over those other brands, especially crank bros as the spindles develop play in them far too quickly (they use bushings and not bearings), times seem to last longer and are easily overhauled with an allen key.

What is with that fairy??? I got 2 flats this past weekend, and discovered my commuter has a slow leak in the rear this morning. What a pain.

If I get lunch down by 3pm it's an early day. Decide on your lunch time, I'll wander down for whenever.
