    Did the usual yesterday, class, work, gym. Much of the same today, except there is a 2 hour history movie. Ooo. Term is coming to a close in a few weeks and I gotta kick it into gear. I have to do a term project for each of the history classes that I have not yet started. They are due October 13, so I still have time though. Not looking forward to spending 400+ dollars next term on books that I will use for 7 weeks worth of courses.

    No riding in the near future for me, one riding partner down as of now. Anyone happen to know how much it would cost to have a new steerer tube pressed into my monster?

    Yo.

    I have two bleacher tickets to this Sunday's Red Sox/Yankees game but we can't go. MBC put them on Ebay and we fetched $335 for the pair. WOO HOO! Not bad for a $50 investment. Now I pray that the game will be meaningless so I don't feel guilty about missing it.

    They still have a chance, although the Mets are killing them this week.

    Morning - grabbed a bite to eat with Splat last night - he was in CT to pick up yet another bike to add to his stable. And he gets on me for the bikes I go through - now there is the pot calling the kettle black if I've ever seen it! ;) :)

    Then I came home, and put a disc rotor on the rear wheel of the Surly along with a different rear tire. Also ran new brake cable to the rear end. Wrenching is fun! :)

    I still feel crappy though - can't shake this cold completely. :mumble:

    Yeah but splat buys them because he can't pass up a good deal, not because he actually wants the bike. :D

    Hi there!

    Hope everyone is having a good morning. Mine is going OK.....pretty busy from the moment I walked in the door. Did a lot of work on the new logride I'm installing at the trails. I love this time of year when things start cooling down a bit. Unfortunately, early darkness is the price we have to pay for it......I was really into getting the supports put in, and looked up to realize that in about ten minutes, I won't be able to see my hand in front of my face. Got out just before pitch black set in and hit the house for some stir-fry and couch-time. I stoked as the new season of "Boston Legal" started last night---I love that show. James Spader, William Shatner, Candice Bergan, Heather Locklear, Betty White......killer cast and great writing. Not for everybody, but I get a kick out of Shatner and Spader--they make a good screen duo.

    Well....gotta run. Got some cranks, chainrings and bashguard coming in today and a BB and front derailleur coming in tomorrow on big brown. I love coming home to packages on the back porch.... :cool:

    Had a fun ride yesterday and saw about 11 other people out on the trails. I stopped to shoot the **** with a couple of them and overall it was perfect weather for a ride and a good time. Today I hope to do it all over again.

    Got home from work too late to get a ride in. Went for a nice night run. It was a beautiful night, a little bit cool, clear skies and the crickets were deafening.

    Yo. I got a ride in last night. It kinda sucked. A stick took out der and hanger. Also a tree branch caught and ripped my shorts. Straight up bad luck.

    Yeah you were the leader of the pack when people came down before. I kind of assumed due to your condition you guys couldn't come down.

    Morning. I did a club group ride last night. I was hurting though as it was the first non-lift assisted riding I've done on over 2 weeks. Had a good time though and by the end of the ride I wasn't completely at the ass-end of the pack so I was happy. Not much on tap for today. Gotta run some errands, etc. and then back to work tomorrow. Have a good day all!!

    This weekend we are going to Ellicotville. But any given weekend we could ride Bristol, Letchworth, HH Spenser, and a half a dozen other places. Always something going on....

    Hmm...I'm not sure where those places are. Rob's in Seneca Falls and we both went to school in Ithaca, so that's about all the central NY I know.
