I am slowly transferring into the two things I hate most (right behind facebook): a road racer and an inconsistent blogger. I guess I should try to fix these things. So I am updating today and inheriting my dad's 26 inch mountain bike. Wheel size that is since that is uncommon now. I am not positive on the frame size but it appears about 2 inches larger and about 10 years newer. This is the best shot of it I could find of it. I am also rapidly prepping tubies for the 2010 road racing campaign. My goal is to have my set of race wheels glued (I am counting on dad for that) by next weekend so I can make sure they work. I am planning/hoping for them to drop that extra .8lbs so I will officially have a sub 16 pound bike. I will probably use these for almost all road events (besides TT) because the majority of the races have hills in it and power in a race kind of scares me. Just the fact that when you know you can only hold a certain wattage for X amount of minutes, and in the race you went over that X. Back to the wheels, the tires are TEAM tires from a SPONSOR and are going to be really sweet so look for some pictures coming soon. This is the rim's current condition.
Can anyone name all four people making the split in last year's RATL in the top photo? All major teams in the 4 race representing. I'll give you a hint, the chunky dude in the orange with the walmart helmet is on our team now. We also finished up the third quarter in school so I am that much closer too summer. I managed to pull out an 'A' in enriched bio-- that should make Greg Fletcher proud. And it raised the gpa up to a 3.7
