I didn't even order it, I just sent my info in to *apply* to be one of the people to get a custom cx frameset built up in time for the fall season. It's pretty nuts but the bikes are goingto be gorgeous. Back in the land of "no, I don't have $3k to drop on a frameset right now" I'm very much content with my Devinci Tosca and IRO Rob Roy.

Well the Speedvagon is one way to get a Sasha bike without waiting four years.

So I go outside to get my car this morning, and there is a parking ticket on it. Reason for the ticket is invalid permit, that was obviously not seen as he put the ticket right over the permit. I guess the permit for my car on my street, parked in front of my house doesn't count. Vampires, bloodsucking vampires I tell you. So now I have a second ticket to fight, hope I don't wait too long for this one, only been 4 months since the other and still waiting to fight the first one. They don't come by in the day and ticket the cars that sit for 8 hours no, they ticket cars with permits.

Fun ride last night, thanks for the ice cream Wes, but does that mean you are courting me now?

Way fun last night everyone. We should make that a semi regular event. I can't always promise a spectacular entrance like that though. My hip is already mad at me.

@Cavernmech: I can also make myself available if you need some help getting the sprints set up.

@Dan: Ring me up later maybe I can pop by after work.

Is there going to be a one-legged division in the sprints? If not, I think it's discriminatory! Don't make me get all Rev. Al Sharpton on you guys.

yes.

also: I got a ticket on my car with a valid permit as well. I just went down to city hall, they looked me up in the system, rolled their eyes (at the dink who wrote the ticket, not me) and said they'd take care of it. Done and done.

By "take care of it" they meant they would just send you an invoice.

Interesting blog on a guy getting a custom Carl Strong ti bike. Some of the sections aren't there, but most of them are. If one isn't there, try the next.

Having a car in the city can be great but the parking can make you crazy, lucky we had a crappy garage to park in & in scarb where we were there was a 3 hour max but was always a gamble.
Here as you know so lax but downtown a bit stiffer. wife was downtown came back to the car & found a ticket on it DAMM then read it A WARNNING HAHA.


Looks like i’m free & clear on Saturday or can be! Let know.

Actually, back when I had to park on the street this happened alot. All you need to do is visit metro hall and if it's a blatantly obvious mistake they take care of it right there...

That painted bike is pretty hot. Love the white paint with the titanium shining through on the stays.

Yeah, TerryB has some nice bikes.

I do like the naked Ti though. Perhaps with a pinstripe or something

Yeah, bare Ti is very nice.. but I like the idea of doing something different, and I also love white road bikes.
