Cool, retro, long haul truckerish where are those funky bars you got?
I would need a later to get on that thing.

not a giant, just a long-legged freak. thanks, i like the saddle bag too, don't see them used enough in my opinion. they seem just the ticket for long rides when a messenger bag would make your back too sweaty.

The route is usualy a mystery until one of us turns. It's not a hammer fest, but we go fast when the fast is good. A comfy pace over all.

Feel free to bring some smoke or drink, as we usually make a pit stop.

Very nice and clean clean clean, funky saddle bag, though you have so much room in that frame you could mount a steamer trunk. Good Job J!!!!!

Hey All. Happy Monday. Sounds like you all had a blast at the R.F.H.....good times and no crashes to speak of.
The Canada Cup race this weekend was AWESOME!! The whole team did really well...5 podiums with one first place. I even managed to finish in 11th with my gimpy leg. WOO-WHO!And I have to admit to a secret (well not secret now) crush on Helene Marie Premonte. That girl is a sexy rocket. She dropped a bunch of the Elite Men that started 2 minutes ahead of her! SWOON.
*edit* So there in a C.V. ride tonite? Usual place?

I donít get what the big deal was. Sure, I was riding behind him, but then got sick of going slow. Iím not going to ride at that pace, just so I can pull him. From this point on I ride side by side with him. If he's going to give me attitude for that, I don't want to pull or be pulled. Come on, we're at the ride for heart. Can't we all just get along?
Dude I'm am pulling, it is however most unfortunate that it's too much you for to take, I suggest maybe back to the bike path with you. What a tool Sir Robin, you were most diplomatic.

*siiigh* she is pretty dreamy, actually ...

Congrats on the great results, Keith! It's good to hear you still managed to break the spirits of men even w/ your effed up leg. Cavern Cycles seems to have quite the impressive offroad team. Does the Cavern team just race offroad or is there a roadie/track/? team as well?

Actually we are not doing our own team this year. Myself and most of last years squad is racing for Angry Johnny's Racing. Our top 2 road riders from last season got picked up by sponsored teams this year so they had moved on to bigger things. I wanted to take some time off from the team management thing and just concentrate on getting out to do some racing myself this year. We are going to be co-sponsor's next year. Most of what we are doing this season is Mountain but we will be out in force for Cross season as well.

Darn, I just realized that I got punk'd by my art professor on the last course of my undergrad. I pretty much singlehandedly organized the whole show and had some of the better work in it, and he gives me a B while the class average is an A-... what a dick. Now my GPA has dropped below 3.2...
