Thanks everybody for the b-day wishes. There was no cake but was plenty of snicker marathon bars and power gels washed down with gator-ade. Oh, and that night there was a lot of fried food washed down with sweet tea at the Moose Cafe. (love that place). I will be eating nothing but carrot sticks and celery for the next week. Not a lot going on around here. I've been scouring the net and bike catalogs since I'm planning on making a new bike purchase this winter. I've got it narrowed down to 3 bikes.

Trek Fuel EX8 ( the 08 model with that fancy new pivot)
Salsa Dos Niner
Trek Top Fuel 8 (not real's pretty much been voted off the island but who could make a stunning comeback)

Of course if I win the lottery then all bets are off and I'm getting a custom Titus Racer X Exogrid. :-)

Also got a cross frame for cheap so I'm looking to build that up into a commuter/road bike. We'll see how that goes.

Hope everybody is having a great weekend. Later folks.

We'll have fun,fun,fun.....

..till Mother Nature takes the sunshine away. Crap. Getting dark sooner and staying dark longer. Fall and winter are sneaking up. We can pretty much ride year round here but, I'm a sunshine kinda guy. I like getting up early and watching the sun come up while I have my morning coffee. Not while I'm at work. Oh well.

Been having a blast with riding the past few weeks. I took my hrm off the bike and haven't been worried about a "purpose" for my rides and have just been riding. Such fun. My legs have felt like overcooked spaghetti but it has so been worth it.

Hope everybody is having a great week and will have a great weekend. Good luck to Chris at his Thursday crit and this weekend in Michigan.

Later folks.
