Slacker: I noticed the other day that Mr.24 had been slacking off a little, and that he missed posting for a day. Well, this is what he has been up to lately, so now you know, and knowing is half the battle! (And on company time no less! Are you taking notes, Leans On Wood?)
Leaks: I see on the message board dedicated to all things 29 inch wheeled that Gary Fisher has shown a sneak peak of several new 29 inch specific goodies coming our way! An under $1000.00 hardtail, The Rig as a frame/ rigid fork only combo, two rigid Bontrager forks, and a new Race Day suspension platform available in spring! Wahoo! I can't wait to get to the show! (Trek Show this weekend, that is)
Geeks: It was geek bike day at the ol' shop! Two recumbent trikes built, and one recumbent tune-up. With only one extended reach clamp for the workstands, the day got kinda balled up. I did get to do an extended test ride on one of the trikes. I was doing two wheeled turns and just about high sided it during a high speed descent! Wa-hoo-hoo-hooooo! I have a new appreciation for why we call these things death sleds!
That's all for today! I hope Mr 24 has his air intakes all ported and polished for this weekends assault on Camp Ingawanis! He'll be puttin' the hurt on anyone that dares to show up, I'm sure! As for me, I'll be blazin' a trail up there the day before, all by my lonesome! Goin' to the show on Saturday! (YES! I am excited!) Sunday I'll be in Madtown whilst the group is ragin' the camp! Can't wait to hear the tales of woe when I get back!
