For now the beer is in the main fridge, I'll get around to relocating it once the was and flooring are done.

... now what to have for lunch...

relaxing after a nice 60km ride with friends. It was a nice day for a bike ride. Now I'm thinking about lunch.

Good for you for getting your parents out on bikes.

It's officially spring - the electric blanket was taken off the bed today.

Project vehicles are my therapy. I just found a project motorcycle that I'm having a really tough time not calling about.

Had to put the flannel sheets on last night and turned the bed up to 8 (heated mattress ftw)... have to make sure a certain girl's toes stay warm.

Joy and I have a very nice sleeping arraignment. We sleep with the windows open (even in the dead of winter) and she gets to use 5 blankets...

The Girl is no stranger to cold as she grew up in Michigan although she is acclimated to living in the PNW... living in Canada will be a big change for her in so many ways and the weather will be one of them.

A heated mattress pad with dual controls is something you should look at... it saves a lot of power and ensures you can both stay comfortable.

For some reason The Girl's side of the bed is always much warmer.

Stayed up very late watching Paris Roubaix on a live internet feed. Brutally hard race when you see them bouncing all over the cobbles. time for bed. Luckily I don't have to work tomorrow or I would be a zombie.

Gee, recovering from a hernia operation, while I can't ride, I can read about other people's rides, and hope that in 4 weeks or so, things will be healed up enough to ride, even though I can't return to work for about 3 weeks beyond that

not too bad actually. The only things that might be an issue is that the maximum drilling is 28h and I'm not so sure of the seals for winter use. Other than those two issues, I think it's pretty good. light weight, smooth bearings, works with 3.2mm bladed spokes.

I can't really find any fault with them for now. Maybe time will tell, but for $30, they're better than 105/ultegra front hubs for lightness and number of holes in the hub. 105/ultegra are pretty much the same, but to get 20h, 24h and 28h drillings, you have to buy ultegra and that's about $65. That's pretty much why I bought them, because I don't want to waste money on ultegra front hubs, when these will do. For the rear, however, good old ultegra and XT hubs, because I'm weary of the novatech freehub mechanisms.


my only true complaint is that they don't come with QR skewers.
Now I have to go buy some shimano skewers from ebay or something.

Wait, you mean that isn't how you're supposed to drive?

That's why I refuse to drive in Toronto though... People complain about Hamilton, but it's way better than Toronto!
