All the don trails are crossable, if you have the gearing. There are a few steep climbs I can't manage with my 36:30 low gear, but the rest is totally rideable. I was in there last night with my lights.....it was FUN.

CX is the new XC.

That was an awesome video. That guy looks more like MJ in thriller than MJ does now! I gotta learn that ear-to-shoulder move, its like Borat doing Michael Jackson. Also the music rocked, its like the Indian Talking Heads!

Don't worry, the only direction you fall off the rollers is down. Kind of like messing up a track stand. Absolutely hilarious.

Okay, the jackass up stairs has his dancehall cranked again. I like reggae as much as anyone, but the last time was a sudden blast at 1:30 this morning. I have me a hankering to crank up some lollipop lustkill... really loud...

Cavit8: we're accepting donations for bikes, apparently we're getting more space somewhere on camps'r'us.

Edit: Does anyone on the offchance know if there is a general solution to an explicit form of a recurrence relation?

Following kaibot's lead, I figgered it was time to winterize my SS. I really wish this frame has some eyelets for fenders as the ones I put on bang around a bit and make noise plus they are easily stolen. Maybe a beater frame will turn up on CL soon. I put some 23s on and some old 105 dual-pivot brakes that I had lying around as I wasn't really happy with the stopping power of the Shimano 600 single pivot calipers. I love 105 and think it is the best value of any road groupo out there. Seeing the bike in a photo really makes me wish I had the matching front wheel for the rear that I found in a dumpster, I suppose that one will turn up on eBay one day (or maybe another dumpster). And don't worry, I fixed that cable along the top-tube after I took the photos.

Anyone up for pretending to be Japanese salarymen and going to a izakaya (Ematei, 30 Saint Patrick Street) on Friday after work?
