    Okay. Cancel that last thought. Lester says the orange and blue was all his idea. #nevermind

    NICE!

    Yeah, I remember my olde Pentax that only did 2G cards. I thought 6MP was perfect unless I needed to crop and print big.

    Yeah, he's doing just fine. That's ok. I'll just be very happy every time his season ends without another ring.

    Once you've been the best a couple times, a hot wife trumps doing it again.

    That's because we hear so many guys complain audibly about the quantity/quality of sex they're getting and so few guys complain about how they're second-best at their job. (Still surprised that Mrs. @sbxx1985 used the word "schtupp".)

    Seems I'm recovered most of the way from crashing. Gonna try a real run tomorrow, on the streets, and see what happens.

    Oh, and 380w for a minute hurts like damn. No way am I winning any sprints. Or climbs.

    OK, I put the effort in to see Hummer's first name. I have to say, I expected "Damien" or "Lucian", or as an outside shot "Tristan". I feel kind of let down now. No offense, Hummie, just not what I expected.

    I was nearly "Sebastian". Would that be better? Not as dark as your ideas, but at least less ordinary.

    I wasn't meaning them to be dark. I only know one person who lives in Texas, his name is Damien, so I just drew parallels.

    Tristan is a heroic name (or a derivative of one), by the way, and not as dark as the others. My son has an odd Irish name (from a famous blacksmith), and when he was rolled in his Petrie dish into the hatchery, I looked at the other name tags. He was surrounded by Devon, Gavin, and Tristan. I said to myself, "I should have named you Stan". Later, when my brother met the baby, he said, "Your name is complicated, I'm just going to call you Stan". So apparently, my eldest should have been named Stan.

    Oh. I was going Damien = Demon (like from one of the early South Park episodes) and Lucien = Lucifer.

    I'd take either of those names, honestly. I hate that mine is so common. It's dreadful.

    It's almost time to go back to Retul. That fit was expensive. I'm at least getting my follow up fit, even though the only recommendation I used was fore/aft.

    I have been going back for reviews pretty much every year. I think every two is sort of a norm. Only had to pay for the first ones (road and TT) though.

    The November guys do not suck. While I am not a fan of the pre-buy thing, it's not like they don't tell everyone exactly how things work and IME they don't BS about what their stuff is and does. I have little doubt the new one will be better and worth the upgrade.

    I'm just waiting for a team mate to scrounge up some cash and buy my 404s so I can get a set of Rails.

    Even with Retul, fitter skill is paramount.

    I am waffling on buying a Thomson Elite setback post for the SS. Since I found out how heavy my current Deda post is, I have been looking for bargain swaps. This is the bike for which I just bought a frame bag and giant seat bag. Weight is meaningless, but want is mean spirited. It haunts me.

    Saw both the Retul guys at Boulder Cycle Sport. Both said the same thing. It was like driving a bus.
