    pretty standard except for that chainring! welcome to the urbanite club...
    looking at that route sheet, it looks like you live in operator's hood.

    I got a wicked cool zipup polyshirt...it's Coca Cola branded and Coke has always been an addiction. As it's from a promo company it might be a sample that never may have been produced. As well a nice cozy Slim Shadyesque hoodie with all the tough removed by the application of hand painted bike wheels and 'daddy-o' across the chest. I love it. A NEW PAN, thick bottomed, heavy, with that cooking spot thingy, good walls for flicking the food around. mmmmm a new pan. Loads of food, too much drink and all the lovin' one person can handle. The look on my bouncin' daughter's face when she got exactly what she wanted from Santa was indeed worth the price of admission. Candice and operator went to school together? The world keeps getting smaller .....still wouldn't wanna paint it though.

    HappY Seasons to all

    Whee. Enjoyed Munich so much I missed my connection to Dubai. Had to stay in a hotel in Munich, catch a flight to Quatar in the morning, and then catch another flight from Doha to Dubai. They upgraded me to business from Doha to Dubai which was nice, and I got to my parents place a half hour before christmas day. It was about 48 hours door to door. I honestly thought I was going to have christmas at a german airport hotel!

    Dubai is ridiculous. Totally insane. Its one giant construction site and 15% of the world's cranes are in this city alone. It grows exponentially, and has no planning whatsoever. They are building the biggest of everything in the world, and nothing takes longer than 2 years. Everyone loves the benevloent dictators and their pictures are everywhere. His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Ruler of Dubai, UAE Vice President and Prime Minister (you have to write that every time you mention him) is an awesome looking dude, and they seem like pretty darn good rulers actually. They plan to build a comprehensive subway system, and the deadline is 2 years from now. And it WILL be completed in time.

    This city is car crazy. The road is streaming with trucks full of construciton materials and people drive like maniacs. The shoulder on Sheikh Zayed road is nicknamed 'the fast lane to Abu Dabi' because cars drive along it at 200km/h (I've seen this a few times already!). Cars are king, and if you joked around on a bike you'd last less than a minute before becoming hamburger. We went and saw where they load the Katyusha rockets into wooden barges to ship to Somalia. They leave all the cargo out and theres no gates. The barges look ready to sink. Somehow it all works.

    My parents live in a crazy gated community. Its called 'The Green Community' not because it uses green building principles, but because they dump so much water on it that its a veritable paradise. There are 100 gardeners in the compound, my parents have a live in maid and her husband, plus a gardener to look after the house, and my dad drives a jag, and my mum drives a big mistubish suv. Its so not 'them' its crazy!

    This place is simply out of hand. I can't even explain it. Its ******** crazy.

    Pics pending my return!

    Back from costa rica, y'alls. No cycling gifts for me except for a copy of "The Long Distance Cyclists' Handbook". Lots of other fun stuff though (and a great vacation). I wish the site hadn't been down all morning since I was hoping to go for a little ride and some coffee. D'oh! I did however bring back a couple bags of coffee from CR... just had my first cup. Tasty!

    See y'alls soon!

    Do any of you guys wear stuff like this for winter riding? I am thinking of getting something from MEC but the prices at ProBikeKit are pretty good too.

    Too many logos for me - and you'll probably get slapped with customs for clothing.

    those kind of winter cycling jerseys are quite good. just make sure you get one that fits snug- it's got to be flush against your body/layers underneath. If you were to wear one of those thin little Defeat undergarment sweat layer things (sold at MEC), with two normal skin-fitting short sleeve jerseys, and then this CSC thing, you'll be warm until it gets a couple degrees below zero. Be forewarned that if you stop mid-ride for a coffee, strip off your layers ASAP.

    But that's just what works for me. Every body reacts differently when playing in the cold.

    It is unfortunate that although CSC is my favourite pro team (well, maybe Quickstep), their jerseys are hideous.

    it's not so much the need, it's the excuse for going on a ride. I'm going to try MEC again while i'm out.

    EDIT: how was bass pro? pick up any camouflage (sp?).
