I hate traveling. 3:06 am and still staring at an empty suitcase. My flight is probably gonna get f*cked over into Chicago and all you a-holes have to worry about is how awesome or how mega awesome the new madone is.

That's very sad Peter. Why don't more people care about your suitcase?

Anyway, I'm thinking I'm going to do the Trek store wednesday night route, Wednesday morning at 7AM. Staring from the Trek Store.

Peter, flying sucks, get there by bike.

Fred, I guess we could stare from the Trek Store, but I don't know how beneficial to a ride that would be. The question is stare where? And would it be a Carebear Stare? (I'm so depressed I know that.) I may be heading down to Lincorn for a team ride on the fizzorth. If that falls through, I'd gladly do the Wednesday night ride in the morning with ya.

Bryan, I got maybe 15 minutes on it. And I chose the wrong size, maybe. The rear end felt good, but I felt like superman all stretched out and the bars were really high. So yeah, wrong size. Since I had such limited time on it, I didn't get the full experience, however, I could tell that most of what they say about it is true. The frames as stiff as an nekkid eskimo, but rolls smooth over rough stuff. I did a couple sprints uphill and the machine was very efficient. It was easy to ride one gear harder since power transfered straight to the road. I want one, bad. But alas, it shall never be. Unless I can get some amazing deal that would seem like a crime against nature to pass up.

Jesus, Mike. How many times have you been to the Trek store? You pretty much have to stare to the southeast. Otherwise, there's buildings and stuff in the way.

When I heard Peter was staring at his suitcase, I thought it was some new training technique and I wanted to try it out.

Peter said...

it works! staring at suitcases has been clinically proven to be more efficient of a cycling technique over any other form of training...in clinical studies...

well you know...it's better than a madone...

and not to mention housing amphibious rodents for domestic use...well that ain't legal either.

What are you, a park ranger now?

bryan said...

amphibious rodents? like a muskrat?

mike -- I couldn't muster the needed energy to get my carcass to Swanson, so I missed out. there's a rumor of a Colnago demo on Friday and Saturday at Bike Masters, though. yes please!

Peter said...
