    I wonder if Santa will bring me these

    Ohhh sweet! I've always lusted on Sidi's but don't like how they fit, even the megas. Giro is my shoe of choice now. My pink Giro VR 90's are by far the most comfortable cycling shoes I've ever owned and I've had a lot of em. My Giro Privateers that got put on stand by use are the second most comfy.

    New (to me) bike!

    And pressured down? I switched to 25's and run 80 PSI front, 85 PSI rear and the ride quality was noticeable over 23's at 100 PSI.

    Weekend Plans as October flies by

    Daughter wants to go to the pumpkin patch tomorrow. Sometimes I think she's 5 and not 25... I guess it's become a tradition.... Wife still needs to find a dress for daughters wedding so I'll have some free time Sat for a mtn bike ride. Probably a road ride Sunday before the Rams game, chores mixed in there somewhere...

    Skip To The Front Of The Line?

    I was riding on SART recently and heard the distinct rumble of carbon, lots of carbon going really fast. I looked left just a tri geek in full sponsor kit, carbon disc rear, carbon deep section front, carbon aero bike freaking fly by me! That sound is amazing. Tri bikes used for iron man aren't subject to UCI regs are they?
  5. Pretty much this. I usually arrive or log in to web/phone conferences a few minutes early. I usually small talk with others or check mail on my phone. I'm not a big meeting guy but I host a monthly telecom with all my vendors & staff and I start on time in respect to the time of those who were punctual. I don't back up or repeat info for those who are late.

    Skip To The Front Of The Line?

    I haven't ridden with a club in a while but tribars were not allowed on any of the club rides I've been on. I'm sure tri clubs allow them tho.

    Well...it had to be done

    I bought my 1st car while in VA, my first summer there. Remember im a SoCal beach boy so I didn't know what the scraper was or what it was used for so chucked it. The first frost and people are scraping their windows and I'm thinking... oh shit that's what that thing was... i haven't scraped a car window since 1987, my last winter in VA...

    So today I made the changeover to fall/winter clothes

    I need to figure out cooler weather clothes for mtn biking. I have lots of road stuff and don't necessarily like to wear my road gear mtn biking. I have a cycling specific jacket but its a little overkill on a mtn bike as speeds are slower/less windchill. I don't ride in really cold temps but I've found layers are my friend.

    Furnace used this AM

    I'm sitting in my living room in shorts, t shirt & bare feet drinking coffee. It's in the low 60's out, a light rain started falling and I have the sliders open listening to the rain, enjoying the rain smell and Im a little cold! I realised I don't even know where my slippers are... I'll grab some socks.

    Saturday morning

    Had dinner with the family last night and since it was a nice evening sat outside. Near the end of dinner we saw lightning and then boom was pouring down rain!?!?!? It rained pretty much all night. As such my wife closed all the windows and sliders making the room stuffy so I couldn't sleep... Was up most the night watching Backdraft and cooking shows. Now I'm freaking tired...

    OK so as I was looking at the pictures in your 1st post I thought, hmm that crank looks like Campy Victory... Ya gotta track down one of those cool blue & white striped Atala jerseys from the early 80's.

    Change - sometimes good, usually bad - what say you?

    Change is change.. How you deal with it is what makes it good or bad.

    Do locals promote your area to visit?

    We had a good time fishing the Gallitan, Yellowstone & Madison up your way. I noticed the Orvis clad guided out of towners were treated differently than the wet wading unshaven heathen with fly rods (us) out of towners.

    Super Keto

    Ohhh I love mackerel. Most consider them junk fish but I smoke them on my grill. Tasty!
