    That's a shame for you, but also an admirable reason to postpone the build.

    Hopefully, I'll get things back on track before May. Otherwise, I might have to do the Fly-By-Night on a single speed.

    My family has asked me to blog as I go. I honestly think it won't happen (won't have energy), but since I like the tech I figured what the heck. I also do not have a smart phone, so WiFi and the Nexus will be my only means of getting map or route planning if my original plan alters.

    Gotcha - yeah, I don't think that the blogging is going to happen, either; that's a pretty aggressive schedule you've got there (I will say, though, that you're in danger of inspiring me to do some smaller-scale 2-3 day tour this season... stop being a bad influence).

    So, on my phone (Nokia) I have the option of downloading maps for entire regions (I have all of North America stored) so that they're available whether or not I have a data connection - I've heard that you can similarly cache with google maps. Definitely check that out before embarking on your trip - GPS does ****-all if you can't load the map around your position.

    Roads are. I expect a big bunch at the South Boulder Rec Center, leaving at 11:00. Boulder, Lyons, Berthoud, Hygiene. I did ride yesterday, and giving the NP a bath is a pain. Aero Seatpost=First World Problem.

    Just came back from a quick ride on the new MUP near me. I don't plan to use it much as it has lots of walkers, dog walkers, joggers, kids on scooters, etc but it was a nice recovery ride and I got a chance to actually see the trail. Lots of puddles from snowmelt, which made me appreciate the fenders on my SS commuter.

    Beautiful Colorado day.

    R3SL is fantastic. A little bit stiffer up front than the Paketa, but noticeably stiffer in the rear triangle. A bike you can ride fast all day.

    I figured you did. He came in 2nd at the Frostbite TT this morning. Fourth to start, picked off a couple 5s. Missed 1st by four seconds.

    Not bad for his first TT. I just talked to him. He was really excited. It's fun. I told him he probably could have made up that time with a wheel cover.

On the other hand, I'd bet my daughter can't remember my not using language like that but I do try to "weave a tapestry" with it like the dad from "A Christmas Story".
