    I think I ventured into P&R the whole time it's been there like 5 or 6 times.

    seems to be the same for me. I have taken holiday from riding, it never ends well though. usually with me on a diet. I like beer when I dont ride, just about as much as when I do ride. But I have more time for beer when I am not riding.

    by the way, i am loving the 90mm stem. no pains and light steering. i had no idea a stem can make such a difference to bike handling.

    We probably could have if we'd had the two or three more days we usually do have in a month. This is a short month but nobody posted extra to make up for it.

    VV is enamored with P&R now. He likes it wild and wooly.

    Poor fella, never got over being locked outta trollheim. He figures P&R is close as he's gonna get.

    The Terry saddle wasn't working for me so I'm thinking of switching to the Fizik Arione Tri 2 we've got in the shop. Which is funny because nearly everyone who comes into the shop wants a softer wider saddle. Not sure I could cope with the legend of a Brooks even if I could afford one and it wouldn't look dumb on my 820.

    So far I have changed the wheels, tires (twice), bars, stem, and seat (three times) on this bike. Probably barely recognizes itself.
