Sold my touring bike (yes!) today for an ok price. Lost $300 on that build but... I now know I dont like touring bikes.

With some good funding on the new build, Im considering pulling the trigger on some SRAM 900 levers and omnium cranks.

Today I took 2 exams and gave a speech. Everything went well though, so now I'm drinking a beer and knocking out.

One major problem was that I wasn't even on the skate park floor, was in the seating area fixing a flat. This is most likely why I stick to street riding or road riding anymore when I'm not on the dirt.

Needless to say, will not be going back to said skatepark, was there for an hour and left, the vibe there is not good at all after the original manager, who is amazingly good on a 20" and 26" got fired for a completely stupid reason.

There's a trick scooter craze now; unlike razor scooters, they are not collapsible & an interesting part is they use 1 1/8ths bike headsets for the handle.
