Which reminds me I should call him this week.

Last I saw of him he was setting up a killer Klein with Campy bits.

Probably out training so he can kick our rears on the next C&V ride.

He last logged in on 4/17/12 so I hope all is well.

As beautiful as that Klein was, he's probably still riding....

Me, too - I was looking forward to a thread on his Italvega. He was 90% done with that beauty when he fell off the face of the earth (relatively speaking).

Yeah, he was starting to gather Campy bits like a vacuum cleaner.

Nice ones at that!

Good luck on the house shopping.

You should have zero issues keeping up with me.

I've put on 10 pounds and only 125 miles since my wipeout.

Khatfull id doing great! I communicate with him on a daily basis via email! I got the chance to meet him when he was in my part of the country! He is a real gentleman, and a true master at builds and restorations! He is a great friend indeed! He'll come back shortly!

Ouch, I forgot about that. Hows the recovery going?

My shoulder is still screwed up from January.

Thanks for asking!

Slow as molasses in January.

I had a great ride today on the 3 speed Hercules though.

Julia and I did a fairly brisk 25 the other day on the racing bikes.

I stayed within a mile or two of her the whole ride.

Take it easy with that shoulder. They take forever.

I knew there was trouble for Keith once I saw that aluminum Klein...the siren's call of "modernity"...He probably doesn't want to share the fact that he has now sold all his Fuji's for a 2012 Specialcannontrek.

j/k (I think)

As Flash mentioned, Keith is fine. A bunch of us are spending more of our Fuji time over at a Google group he set up about 6 months ago. Like me, he also goes through stages where family, life, etc. need to be the priority for awhile.

I'm sure he'll be flattered he was being asked about.
