Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer?

Won this CAAD10 frame for next to nuffin' on eBay. Planning on a 5800/6800 combo build with wheels and cockpit I have lying around. Maybe some Zipp Service Course SL if I can scrounge it up cheap.

I started learning how to weld pipe today. It's like going back to day 1 of welding school with all the frustration and ****ing up. There's a long road ahead of me now.

I've only had the time to ride the Nature Boy on a few short pavement rides since the weekend.

Today I did about 20 miles of gravel roads, double and single track. This bike is too much fun.

Today I'm pretty sure that a gravel adventure trip to Andalucia, Spain is in my future.

Did a couple hrs of mtb with some friends today, penasquitos canyon.

I took it too easy this week and my legs are begging for more. I'm looking fwd to gettin' back on the horse and bludgeoning them to death over the next few weeks .

I'm kind of at a transition point in my season - have already raced 10 times, and won't again until June due to scheduling conflicts. Time to train big and get some fitness back to carry me through the rest of the season.

Today I took it eeeeaaasy, which was good because this week was basically a series of rides where I had no concept of taking it easy.

Today I am sitting here wanting to punch the coworker in the throat that decided to come to work sick late last week. Scratchy throat, coughing, watery eyes, phlegm, and I already know that I am not even close to being sick yet. Damnit.

It's been three hours since I finished my ride this morning and I still feel like I got punched in the stomach

This one is nasty. I was on my back for three days. Airborne or Zicam won't even make this one blink.

You can punch your coworker in the throat but if you have it then you were bound to get it one way or another.

Advice: clear your calendar and set your out of office reply now.

Apparently Phil Wood is making a backpack. Naturally it will be too expensive, but how too expensive will it be?
