Still can't believe I did it, but I convinced my little bro to get a State Bike. He wanted an inexpensive matte black beater, and there aren't really many choices. Times like these make me wish the Kilo Stripper edition was still in stock. I don't think States are terrible, but I just felt like I was pushed into the corner because he wanted something stealthy. Oh well, no regrets.

it wasnt today but a few days ago, i dropped a chain got mad even though i didnt get hurt and threw my bike. I dented the seat stay :|
i got lax on checking chain tension and because i run a biopace i need to keep on top of that, im an idiot.
Today I; realized I need a lot of rule #5
Today I am exhausted. Date night with the boyfriend (dinner and Star Trek movie, yay!) but then got home and don't have the A/C units in yet so it was blazingly hot in my house and I could barely sleep. The dog loudly panic panting all night because of thunderstorms did not help, either.
Last night, I got caught in a violent thunderstorm on the commute home. The temperature dropped about 20 degress is less than an hour, the storm was really pushing a cold front. It brought a whole new meaning to ride the lightning.
And of course, it's the one day in the last six months that I didn't carry my rain gear with me.
I think i came up with a name for my fuji:
Chip, as in mint chocolate chip icecream. Cuz hes mint color with brown accents.
ride bikes, eat food. the circle of life.
This morning I passed a female jogger with no bra on. It looked like she had two loose cantaloups under her shirt bouncing around. Not sexy.
So does the rest of the patriarchy.
Honestly, my first thought was that's gotta be painful.
Today I: recreated a segment on strava because some asshat flagged a perfectly safe descent. http://app.strava.com/segments/4173351
It finally populated with everyone's rides. I knew I had a good run of it, but damn, I'm pretty happy with 2nd. Not bad for being off the bike with broken ribs for a month.
I love you guys.
ETA: Oh, right, I forgot: GRR! I'm so MAD!
It's cantaloupe with an E!
God I hate bad spellers.

Today I started the build up on my Bridgestone Kabuki track bike, like old bikes of this era (1975) it has been drilled for brakes and will probably run a fg/ss on the flip.
Scrounging parts from my bins I decided on a Cyclone crank / Sugino chainring, Gran Compe aero levers, and have some vintage Ukai rims to lace up to the Formula hubs (should have those done tomorrow) and should be spinning around by the weekend to see if I like it. It came to me as a frame and fork.
Gotta find some pedals... have some 600 and Dura Ace sets here... hmmm.
Should make for a nice enough beater bike...
Today I found this:
