did anyone see the new video on martino's bike lane diary? apparently, the people at the ellen degeneress (sp) show had a bike messenger from NY on their show to talk about messengering and things. i see he was wearing a helmet; i wonder if that's just for the show?

Haven't listened to that one in a few years. I think the weather is about right for some senselessly loud jazz blasting this evening. (can I go home now, please?)

I normally get into work dry, but with a soaked T-shirt and damp socks (Sweat!). Today it was the exact opposite, my t-shirt was dry, my feet were dry, but I was soaked totally through everywhere else!

I was locking up my bike in the basement and laying out my clothes on the empty bike racks (all but the one my bike is in) and the young, hugely fat, bearded security guard walks down and asks "What are you moaning and groaning about?" Well I wasn't really moaning and groaning as far as I remember but I took his word and said "Cuz I'm SOAKED!" and he said "Well you do have a choice. Its your fault after all. You could have teken a taxi thas what they are for" I was a little taken aback so I just said "Yeah I guess so, if you're a sucker! Riding my bike to work is better regardless of the weather. I just ended up wet today is all"

I don't think he got it. I'm praying my clothes will dry by this afternoon....

That was Squid on Ellen. He is the numero uno organizer in N.Y. Hell of a nice guy. I am not sure if he used to wear a helmet regularly, but as he is Captain of the Puma/N.Y. team, he might have to now.

I saw that as well. Hes the *famous* guy nic-named squid "hawk wheels" on here. I some how doubt he wears one but who knows?

I know i have a love/hate relation ship with my helmet.

That was the wish, figured that I have enough cranks, stems and bars that that would work, but my wife has decided that if I have money to buy a 4th bike with, I have money to pay back the $$ I borrowed from her line of credit, so hub from Shapelike is being ordered.

Her other suggestion was to sell my cannondale and use that money to buy a bike if I wanted. Don't want a new fix bike that bad.
