Ridin' and Rainin'  //   Friday - October 22, 2004

Yes, the Wednesday curse continues. Rain keeping us off of the trails, but not off of the bike. Five of us hit the pavement and sped around in circles looping the BWI airport. Pretty fun, twisty, unlit stuff with elevation change, not your normal bike path type of thing. Eleven and a quarter miles for a lap. We did three, giving us 33 miles and change. Good to get out and pedal even if it wasn't on dirt.

Heading to see Mike Watt tonight in the nation's capitol. He'll be playing his new punk rock opera, The Secondman's Middle Stand. Should be good, the man never disappoints.

Big Wheel  //   Wednesday - October 20, 2004

Yes, boys and girls, I'm back. And when I arrived home the last piece of the puzzle had arrived by brown Santa to complete the new Ro Sham Bo. 29 inch. Rigid. Single Speed. The crappy lighting in the photo at right doesn't do the metallic Orange Crush paint justice.

The ride surprised me. I had set a mental bar as to how I expected this thing to handle the local tight and twisties and it exceeded it. Out of the gate it felt solid and quick and, dare I say nimble? Maybe to strong of a word, but it certainly wasn't sluggish and the big hoops weren't holding me back in the tight stuff. I'm impressed with the geometry.

More thoughts down the road as I log more time. Raining again here so it looks like the Kelly will have to take a back seat to the road bike tonight.
