Still no bike!


Dah! Ok so I haven't been able to ride since about late August I think! So I am a bit ticked off since I have not been on the bike! Ok, so I am not currently in school (ended up leaving last year during my sophomore year of high school since my school wasn't challenging me enough (and there are no other schools around) so I dropped out and got my GED (scored really high for those that want to know, and it isn't as easy as everyone says it is). So I haven't been in school since then so I haven't been doing that, and I have been applying to colleges so I have been spending my time doing that and it's stressing me out! I have gained weight from not riding as much as I did (I was doing a 44 mile ride probably 3 or 4 times a week). So I am now mad at myself for not doing anything about it! Then to rub it in my face my mom just bought we a bunch of stuff at performance bike (on sale) so I keep looking at all these things and I can't ride my bike! Plus my pedals are busted so I need to get new ones and I am planning on getting clip less pedals which means I have to get shoes to go with it (which is more money to spend which I won't get until around xmass).

Oh yeah, and my bike is up in storage in NH (hopefully not stolen) and I am here in MA (moving soon) so it's up there with busted wheels (still under warranty from the LBS, need to bring them in for new wheels) So now I need to get that done soon since the LBS closes for the season soon! So I have to purchase some tires and tubes for the bike plus rim tape!

SO the list is as follows:

Rim Tape
Handlebar Tape
Bring wheels to LBS


Ok I am done ranting!

Sorry all!
