It's my bikes birthday soon.

So it's my bikes birthday soon, April 25th. He will be one year old. He is a size 50 Surly Long Haul Trucker, blue. I'm thinking about getting him new rack. Probity the Surly Nice Rack silver. We have been wanting for for just as long as I have wanted him. I will probably get it for him just a little early. I plan on going for along ride that Monday after class if the weather is well. He has been wonderful for the past year. Always there when I needed him. Only 1 flat all year. And a slow leak that I can remember. I got new Koolstop pads a couple months ago for him. They are wonderful. All the other parts I will probably ride with till they are really done for. I keep him running well. With well over 2000 miles he is still good. I cleaned him up this morning.

So other then me just talking about my bike. Anyone else celebrate there bikes birthday or feel nice when you get him or her presents?

My Cross Check got a makeover for spring, as a reward for sitting all winter, while I rode my Pugsley. New chain, cassette, handlebars, bar tape, and front rack.

Hey, did you get fitted a size down for that Cross Check? I take a 52cm in a road bike and I heard that if you get a cross bike it should be smaller. What's your take?

Absolutely bizarre. But if you're going to go there, then you might as well throw a surprise party for him/it.
