Today I worked in my shop and fitted my road shoes with new cleats to fit the new Look pedals... met with my partner as he was dropping off frames and gave him a few things that needed to see a lathe.

He's probably fine. He hopped into the back of the van. Unless his legs didn't make it.

getting ready to drive to fencing practice and the wife says "it just stopped raining, you big girl's blouse". so it was into biking gear and even getting a wet butt from spray, it was better than not riding....

now having a Hoegaarden and curiously drawn to vintage Method Man videos on Youtube.....

It's fake. Look at the guys head location that gets hit head on. You'll see.

Also the fact that the guy flips the wrong way

Hoegaarden > *. Unfortunately, the only bar around here that has it on tap is owned and run by the DEV-IL.

Today I re-purposed my old laptop hard drive as an external hard drive for my newly bought Wii.

80gb holds quite a few wii/gc games. I'm pleased.

forgot to mention that during last night's ride I noticed after we stopped that someone was riding without a chainring bolt in ...

oh and the ridiculous ratios are starting to pop up again here. when we rode to the track this weekend some dude was 52/15 and had apparently just switched it from 52/13
