This is a shameless attempt to save the the most advanced civilization in
history from imminent self destruction by eliminating carbon emission,
dependence on foreign sources of fuel,obesity, hypertension and diabetes.
Cycling accomplishes all those things at once and helps us develop a better
understanding of ourselves, each other and our relationship to the cosmos.

Oh, horse puckey!
I like to ride bikes, have been doing it all my life.
The rest of that crap is just a fringe benefit,
and the blogosphere gives me a chance to share my interior
monologue with virtual rather than imaginary friends.

Of course I broke a drive side spoke and couldn't even make fiber fix work.  Oh well,  35 spokes is stronger than 32. I'll just have to pay attention to it and keep it straight.


  1. I feel your pain. My last emergency spoke repair got me to work but was a real SOB to get back to normal in the shop.

  2. I rode this for four more days fully loaded without a problem. I just checked the spoke tension every now and then, it got me home.
