Tonight i rode through a bunch of new subdivisions around here. It's like every new plot of McMansions tries to out-do the last. A few years ago $300k bought you a decent house out here, now that's what the "slums" go for. You're not mackin' unless you drop a mil+ in some of these areas. Crazy. My current favorite ride is the 1x1- 32:15 fixt/no brakes w/lites, fender and 2.35s. Slow=warm and the big tires allow me to blast through snow banks and explore the unknown whenever the urge arises. Hoping to break out the road bike tomorrow for a good day of riding then bmxican on Sunday. My fixed-road project is on hold until i find some time/$$$/ambition. Until then i got enough going on to keep it fresh.

Or in this case, a parking lot. F-250? Dang, must've been a rough spot to drive out of. I'm entitled to take humor in this since i too own a fine autombile from this manufacturer. Just like i'm entitled to make Polock jokes and Chris Rock is entitled to use the N word. Swap was alright, didn't sell anything and didn't spend too much so i can't complain. It was good seeing everyone there. Big thanks to Russell for parking my stuff at his table. Today i rode solo. The SE wind was vicious. I mean, pedal yer a$$ off downhill to hit 16mph, vicious. A little underdressed in the morning but when the sun came out, all was right. Post ride was some leftover spaghetti, garlic toast, a couple slices of salami and an iced mocha. Over 4.5 hours to do 80 miles?! Told ya i was slow.

For a moment i thought i might've had one up on Russ. But the discs were pilfered and would have made little use for any possible makeshift repairs. He is right though, digital technology is becoming more prevalent over classic print media. Aside from that, i put a solid ten hours of country roads beneath my wheels this weekend. Good thing racing is 4 months away 'cuz i'm sh!t slow right now.
