Riding in Texas with rednecks and pickup trucks. Yum. Seriously, it does sound like it could be a fun time. If I wasn't in California, I might even consider going some time.

I might be racing a road race in Tejas at the end of January. Could be fun...

Actually the riding in Tex-ass is really good in most places.

How's the Pepsi bike coming along?

Yeah, Pete, but that one's in June, which is far too late to do any good. If I was going to wait until racing season was over before doing any spring training (uh, yeah), I'd do BTC instead. Duh!

Oh, and Tim, I might not be able to get parts for the pepsi bike just yet because our clothing orders for spring are due, and the problem with switching teams is that last year's kit is completely useless. Ordinarily I would save my cash by only buying one new pair of shorts, but somehow I'm thinking last year's shorts wouldn't go over so well now. Oh well.

Besides, Pete, look at these people's pictures. It's March, and they're wearing shorts and short sleeves! In MARCH!

We could wear shorts and short sleeves in March. I'm considering wearing shorts on the way home tonight after thinking about how overheated I got on the way home last night.

Now that is just silly. I realize we're having a heat wave, but 30 degrees is still not shorts weather. Men are weird.

It's 36 degrees out and I'm running studded snow tires. Sounds like shorts weather to me.

my fixie/ss project got outta hand. even with being given a "free" bike I still had to buy:

-fixed/free 700c rear wheel ($70)
-tire and tube to match ($22)
-fixed cog/lockring/freewheel($50)
-44t chainring($25)
-ergo bar ($16/used, though I coulda skipped this)
-bar tape ($10)
That was just the initial expenditure. I have since purchased for said bike:
-fenders ($20)
-Cartridge BB to replace the one I fucked ($11)
-tools to pull out ancient bb ($9)


and truthfully the bike still needs its own front wheel, since the old one is 27". I've been using my front wheel from my set of "training" wheels for my road bike.

I plan on being there. Nothing like getting some good miles in the warm sun. It's been dry and in the 50s and 60s here of the Front Range of Colorado. No doubt that means it will be 30s and snowy in March here.
