If it's good enough for Lance, it's good enough for Pcad

Notices
Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

If it's good enough for Lance, it's good enough for Pcad

How long before we rue the day the blog was made?

Good job though, I will be there probably far too regularly for my career's good.

If they don't have the stupid bike in my hands within 30 days that's precisely what could happen.

Maybe if Cervelo doesn't get the bike in your hands soon enough you should Re?

Funny, PCad, you mock my Limey talk, but I'd always thought "rue the day" was a particularly English expression:

PCad, as someone who has studied and written about Web 2.0, I am impressed with your diving in to try it out . I'll have my students look you up as we'll also be Twittering this semester (But, right now, you are blogging.)
