Have I mentioned recently that I love my camera? I spent five hours at work, and did nothing except arm wrestle, listen to Mahler 5/sleep, and play with the camera.

About selling the gloves: it's funny that you suggest that, since back in high school, I sold my riding buddy a defective tire. (Its knobs were pulling off) He didn't mind, tho. :eek: :D

Hey, why do you have to be raggin' me on hro-open? Huh? :eek: :D

I'm on the verge of writing a "hey, let's make next year really awesome musically" type message for that audience, btw.

This is all you're going to be hearing from me in the next few weeks, while I'm bikeless. :eek:

Keith,

You have to ride with a paper bag over your bike if you take the K2 out to play. :eek: :D

Driving home from Mammoth, I pushed the ol' Maxima a bit too hard, and ran her clean out of gas. At night. Along highway 395. We (Ruben and me, or Ruben and I in the context of the sentence) feared that it would be 20 or miles to the next gas station, and it was quite the sleepless night inside our tent -- we camped the whole trip -- with the big rigs roaring by. Come next morning, we took off riding along the highway, and found a gas station only 3 miles away. Stupid, stupid, stupid. :D

Evil grows imminent:

Moab is too hot. Believe me. :D

Now, after playing basketball in the sun and using up the last bit of my energy that finals didn't suck out of me, I feel great. :D Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh, to be done

Ok guys, I'm packing up my computer in a few minutes. It will be back up on the network around June 20th. My page of friends is going to be mirrored on my fas account, but all biking content will be unavailable (don't have enough room for it, thanks to all those movies).

I'm out of here in a few hours. Ari: I'll be around my room until 10:30 or so, so if you swing by you can pick up Return to Castle Wolfenstein. Bye all.

I most certainly am around. I'm headed home on the 7th and will be home for a week, but other than that I'm here in jolly old cambridge!

I'd love to ride. This weekend?

Hi Ari!

I got you some new grips, btw. They're short lock-ons, so your levers won't have to be all crammed up against the stem. I walked into The Downhill Zone in the u district here in Seattle, and walked out much poorer, not knowing what happened. :eek: :D

the no2 bike is completed (minus the paint job for now), and I put down 70 mi on (no, I'm not just yankin your chain) PAVEMENT. I don't think I'll be moving my legs for a bit. I might ride tomorrow mornin' if anyone's interested. It'll be a slow one.

Oh yeah? Well I haven't left the house all day. :eek: :D

Anyways, here is a picture of the grips to amuse you all as I work through 200+ images from England to get a web page ready:

I feel your pain, Thad. Make sure to pick up a replacement ride soon, tho -- it seems like the fall and spring seasons during the year are only a month long, so we must ride now. (This from the guy whose only bike is in a box in his garage.)

Keith: whatcha talking about? That's a Concorde.
