    Ever have one of those moments where you're completely stoked on going out and riding and it gets killed by something?

    In this morning's case, my pump decided to die before my road ride. After an hour of attempting to fix it, I've decided it's foregone and that I need to go buy another. However, that requires me to deposit some money in the bank. And wait until 11 for the shop to open, thereby pissing the day away.

    Maybe I'll just go run. :nopity:

    this is nonsense talking... your use of the term NEVER, irks me! Sure there are situations that are THAT desperate...


    for example...
    fridge door squeeks open..."damn I am out of beer" in this case RUN do not walk to the nearest place of sale...

    example 2
    phone rings... Bllllllllllling bllllllllllllling...
    you "Hello"...
    her "WHawawawa waa wa wa waaa!"....
    You "what? You are nekkid and in the mood?" Click.

    in this case RUN do not walk (you never know when the mood will change!)

    having said that broken floor pumps etc. do not necessitate the need to stoop to running!

    Perhaps the unemployed hippie should re-evaluate his priorities.

    I went out and ran and remembered how much I utterly detest it. It's just so boring after riding long distances on a road bike...So I gave up after half an hour and 4 miles.

    :D

    It does however look like my mtb is getting fixed today. SIICK!

    Something short and oversized. Do any of the LBS's have random part bins where they unload crap for cheap?

    It sucks, 'cause I had something like 4 Gravity and FSA stems kicking around before I moved that I gave away...

    Try ABS they usaully have a box of old or take off stems, if not just ask one of the dudes that works there if they have anything at thier place.The only thing i have oversize is a direct mount for a marzocchi.

    It was about stosh and I getting our email signals crossed about the secret Santa silliness. How he decided that I had not posted since Jesus' original birthday I am not sure.

    I once saw a dead guy on the way to a ride. It has a certain impact on your day.
