^^Thanks, I'll try.

The problem is that my buddy thinks that 58F/40F partly cloudy with a 20% chance of rain is "not looking good", my brother is going canoeing and my son didn't request off work as he said he would.

Ordinarily, I'd have no trouble on my own and in some respects would relish the solitude.

Well, I'm supposed to be painting tonight, but I don't got the oomph in me tonight. But since I haven't quite made the final decisions on paint color in the "bike cave" I guess I can drag my heals one more day before I get started on the primer to cover over the first "attempt" at painting in there. And I figure this way, the longer the wife sees one of the bike racks in the living room, perhaps she wont notice if I leave it there... yeah, who am I kidding.

I just took a walk because I have a headache.
And there are lightning bugs in the pine trees.
They make me happy.

If by Prague, you mean Dallas, Texas, then give me call, as I will be in Prague too.

I'll buy you some e-beer from CZ.
I'm not quite sure they've perfected the delivery method, but it sounds promising.

I am going to need a tandem bicycle... it's nice that I work with a builder of such things and am hoping we can have it ready by July.

How about 26 inch wheels with S&S couplers ?



Arvon builds a tandem that can be re-configured as a single or set up with multiple rear sections for adult or child sized stokers with S&S couplers.

Will have to get somepics of this for y'all... this is Arvon's own custom bike with a quad up front.



I like the idea of 26 inch wheels on a tandem and being able to break it down and take it with you is awesome... should have one of these in my shop soon as well as a custom long tail for me to use as a demonstrator / test ride.
