    It's a tight fit that doesn't allow for much wheel flex at all, but it confirms that I can fit some narrower 29er tires with less aggressive tread no problem

    Not too bad. There are some hills, but nothing too tall or too steep. This was actually the third time I did that century fixed, so I knew what I was getting into.

    weird story

    guy struck up a conversation with me on bart about my saddle (caad10). Told him it was a carbon knock off of a spec toupe. he said he thought so and that it was his favorite saddle. Hey, same here. We started talking about his BB30 creak, he has a caad10 too. I try and look up the part number for the angular contact bearings that I use but cant find it. We get to west oakland and hella people get off so seats open up, he sits and puts his bag down, we both have MW's. We both note the similarities and he jokingly asks what kind of squirl I have, I laughingly reply "asian." he starts to laugh harder, him too. I ask for his number as we get closer to his stop to text him the part number once I look it up, he starts to rattle off his phone number as I stop him after the sixth digit cause its exactly mine.

    glitch in the matrix man.

    Today I built up a new set of wheels for the new bike. Novatec hubs, DT Swiss Aero spokes, Sun Ringle Rhyno Lite rims, standard 32h 3x. Pretty much the cheapest wheels I could put together with those specific rims and track hubs. $69 for hubs, $51 for spokes, $5 nipples, $61 rims = $186.

    My blinky flew off when I hit a bump. I heard it hit the ground, so I turned around to grab it. I guess the car behind me ran over it, because this is all I could find.

    Today some dip**** taxi tried to hook me real ****ing good. Three lane road, left turning lane, straight lane, and a right turn lane, all separated by solid whites. Dumb**** proceeds to make a left hand turn from the rightmost lane, speeding up to beat the yellow. His path went right through me and I couldn't find a line fast enough so I just layed it down. Lost some knuckle skin and my ankle is banged up. The bike is whatever. Don't even care anymore.

    **** SF.

    Walked a mile home bare footed (only had cycling shoes) on burning hot chip and tar roads before some kind old man driving by asked if i was training for a triathlon or wanted a ride. I'm still not sure what I hit in the road, but it sounded like I ran over a shopping cart.
    destroyed my tire

    scratched the frame pretty decent too
