He could've used some coaching.

I like our Ikea couch.
I realized this morning its starting to stink from plopping my sweaty self onto it after my morning rides.
Good thing its got removable/washable cushion covers.

I want to coach my bike to go faster by evolving, darwinian style. I'm going to teach it to grow 404's and Sram red components from 105. You'll see, you'll all see, until I start riding it and I'm a blip on the horizon...you'll see.
