i had some errands to run this afternoon (post office, groceries), so i wore my messenger bag when i went out riding. it's weird, but for some reason everything seemed to click: i was moving faster, the gear felt a lot easier (due to equipment probs, i've been running 46/13 for about 3 weeks now), i could skid more consistently. maybe the bag's got some mojo attached to it. i guess i'll wear it out all the time and see what happens. pass the koolaid and get me a "posenger" t-shirt, i'm finally here.
