Found out today that the Dos Niner should be shipping out from Bikeman.com World Headquarters tomorrow. Along with a TON of other goodies. The UPS man is gonna be hatin'. Got the frame, plus my REBA & SRAM stuff, not to mention my new Lazer Lid, Sock Guy/Bikeman.com base layers, Hammer Nutrition order and more! Can you say depletion of one PayPal account?? Speaking of the Dos Niner there's a cool review up over at Bikeman.com by fellow team member Steve Morse. Dude is 6'4" I can't even imagine him on anything other than a 29er.
No ride tonight. Hung out with the B-Man. Watched some taped coverage of the Criterium International. His idea I swear!!! D.K. you'll love this- I had B-Man putting a plastic cup up to his face and going "Luuuuuke, I AM YOUR FA-THER..." It was freaking sweet!!!
Book recommendation: Off To The Races, by Samuel Abt. Good stuff. Really gets in to a LOT of races, not just the Tour, but the Giro, Roubaix, and just about all of the big and small spring classics over the past 25 years. It's great 'cause you can just pick it up anywhere. Don't have to read it cover to cover. I will say I don't find this dudes writing style all that exciting, but it's still really interesteing.

Now THIS story is pathetic.
