Today I had a cool last day at my internship, then as I got home my boss calls me to ask if I wanted a full time job for the summer.

Today was another mtb ride but with a group of more experienced riders. I climbed faster than them but lagged on the descent. I'm more exhausted from the descent than anything because I'm on a rigid frame and it was fast, rough, and mildly terrifying. This additional danger is kind of addictive. Been sleeping it off.

today i was given an Ideale 39 saddle, with some amateur pinstriping, that a friend found at a yard sale for $5.

needs a little TLC, but i think i'll swap the Regal off the Nature Boy and give it a try.

They're easy enough to sand and refinish if you're feeling froggy.

Today I spent more time on the dirt. Also saw this sign...

johnnytheboy 06-21-13 09:51 PM

Ultegra 10....2013. The good ****.

so glad I didn't.

Today I built up a new gaming desktop for my father in law. Easiest build to date with no troubleshooting whatsoever. It just worked.
I can't believe this old man now has 4th gen haswell and gtx titans in SLI.

Desktops are amazing to build nowadays, everything just works.

I have to agree. Being welcomed by a warm and user-friendly UEFI bios as compared to the cold and desolate ami/award bios made me almost feel out of place.
And bonus points to no longer having to use/ the motherboard driver disk no longer being essential FTW.

Almost every disk minus the wireless card disc is useless, though I guess you are on a gaming desktop and probably on a cable. You install the disc of anything else and then you need to update it, may as well just install off the website.

But OCing in BIOS made me feel like such a hacker :rolleyes:

Kids building rigs today have no idea what "multiplier" is I bet.

It used to be primarily for the NIC drivers but seemingly M$ created and put a series of universal drivers on the win8 install disc this time around.

You know that Dura Ace DI2 is now 11-speed, right ?

Today my roommate fixed the wireless router, I finished a seven day work week, I found out that Red Baron has frozen pizza and boneless wings in the same box, and I get a three day weekend. *swish* Also I have a new roommate moving in and she's Chaka Khan's manager.

Now they just press the "turbo" button. Nothing like tinkering with voltage, multiplier, and front side bus for a couple hours to get the highest frequency :D

GENESTARWIND 06-22-13 12:41 AM

I had some one turn from across the street right in front of me, no time to stop, went over the hood. Forks bent and wheel needs to be trued. Mad. Lucky i have a spare wheel but need to source out a used fork.

seau grateau 06-22-13 12:48 AM

Bummer. Good thing you're okay.

GENESTARWIND 06-22-13 01:31 AM

Just mad, plus my shin hurts and my shoulder feels like it will be sore

seau grateau 06-22-13 01:34 AM

Ice it with a High Life. Any chance of getting the driver to pay for new stuff (assuming he or she even stopped)?

GENESTARWIND 06-22-13 02:57 AM

Stupidphone I'll post again with a laptop

i do. thanks.
you do know that dura ace is available in mechanical 11 speed right? as far as mechanical shifting goes, it's the smoothest shifting groupset to date, imo.
personally....i'd take ultegra 6770 over dura ace 9070...and i did.
i'm not on the 11sp bandwagon just yet....

Oh, I'm totally onboard with you on using mature technology. I just bought a Salsa Colossal Ti road bike that's rocking 105 and Ultegra mechanical. It shifts better than my first generation Dura Ace on my 9 y/o road bike, and costs a lot less. When I first got my old road bike, Dura Ace had just come out with 10-speed, and Ultegra was still 9-speed, so I had to buy the very expensive DA cassettes with Ti cogs. I waited until Ultegra cassettes were available at less than half the price before I bought any more of them. I like the fact with 10-speed you can now use chains with quick links, so that you can easily remove and re-install the chain for cleaning w/o having to break the chain and then put in a new special pin with a special tool. In fact, the chain that came with my Salsa is a KMC with a quick link.
