Well put my track drops on & took them off just as fast. I can not get used to them. I love my bullhorns, not sure if they will be aloud on the track (if i bring my bike?)
Need to get some regular road bars!

Cheers

Bullhorns won't be allowed on the track unless it's a pursuit race.

I wasn't paying attention, but it was accompanied by the most inefficient photo to EVER BE TAKEN IN THE ENTIRE HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSE. Operator gets that title though.

Blah ... so crywolf.ca expires in a few weeks and I'm not renewing it. Mulling over a new domain name has got to be one of the most mind-bogglingly frustrating tasks ever.

"Okay, every possible combination using my name is taken unless I register a domain under some obscure country domain ... time to start pondering something that sounds interesting but won't annoy me in 12 months."

*Returns to watching stage 19 of the Giro ... and whois'ing domain*

buh. can't sleep.

velodrome peeps: don't forget shoes/pedals/helmet. You aren't riding without a helmet --- I don't want you to go all the way to London and not be able to ride. And you aren't sticking your sweaty head in my helmet!

Um.. no.. that prize would go to me. I got a flat on a ride on a Tuesday. My bike sat forlornly in my apartment until Thursday when my boyfriend could come over to fix it (mind you, it was my first flat ever). Even now it'd probably take me like an hour to figure out what I'm doing.

I am officially claiming "first post after velodrome" status.
Fantastic time today guys. Can't wait to do it again. No skin donation's and what I thought was an impressive first showing by the bike forums crew. Cheers for a good day. K.
So who's gonnna be the madison team? I nominate Shiz and Mitch. I will of course hold the stopwatch and look "official".
