Went shopping for houses this morning. Saw 10 in 2 hours, a new record. Gave a short talk at my daughter's school and didn't embarrass her, will have to hit trainer after dinner. Good day.

I love this thread.

My Friday's going all right... rode in to work, bought skate skis at the swap meet, and I have some interesting projects going on right now. I'm looking forward to a relaxing weekend.

If you can't be trusted with a gun and beer, you can't be trusted with a gun or beer.

That'll be a good one till you want more wind protection. (IOW when it gets colder) If you can find an older BMW R-RT, they're hands down the best all-weather commuter I've ridden. The weather management on them bikes is phenomenal.

Fixed the beer thing for you.
Sako works as long as it has some cheap ass optics on it
Hampsten works if you don't mind snow (good chance) and gravel in the dark.

Ah a positive post what a great idea. I am glad this week is over it was a bit hectic, but this mornings commute and lunch time JRA ride was perfect. Oh on a funny note I stopped by the shop to have quick splash of coffee and I see my wife pull up and I tell the mechanic/floor person/ manager I am not here. After she is talking with him I come up and say oh hi there. Well of course I surprised here because she was shopping for my birthday next Saturday. It was pretty funny oh and now I know what I am getting for my birthday, no it is not that Colnago C60 oh well.
Have a great Friday

Hank's slide show

Velotel to you all, at Vecchio's. Great time and got to see Andy Hampsten again too. Great show, slides, good, cheap beer...hanging out at the bike shop..what's better than that?

Should have taken a picture..didn't, drank to much 'stupid juice'.

Forgot to have my book signed..at the 'book signing'...doh!!

I found out Hank doesn't have the following words in his lexicon in english or french..

flat ride...

Another beautiful Friday in NYC!

after a dreary, rainy few days, sun is up this morning and it feels like it's going to be a prime fall weekend.

who has weekend plans? i'm definitely going to get a longer ride in one of the days this weekend, probably one of the last for the year. As November dwindles down, so do the geared bike miles for me. December on is mostly gym work, and any road time will be on the fixed gear bike, which is another passion.

c'mon 5 o'clock

3 weeks ago today I had an accident on my motorcycle and messed up my rotator cuff. It is a LONG way from healed and my cyclocross season was over the instant I hit the pavement. That gutted me. But yesterday I decided to go on a ride this Sunday with my wife and friends and that will be the first ride I've attempted since the injury.

I don't know if it will go well, or if I will regret it. I'm absolutely certain it will hurt. I'm just looking forward to it SO MUCH.

I couldn't sleep last night because my brain wouldn't stop thinking about which bike I should choose!

Going up to Healdsburg with some friends to ride the Geyers on Sunday. Cub Scout food drive in the neighborhood tomorrow. It's been a nice week and looks to be a good weekend!
Also planning to enjoy a bottle of Racer 5s while gluing up another set of tubulars and cleaning up the rims on a pair of new to me hyperons!

Friday's are always positive. No matter what kind of crap is going down at work or at home Friday always has a positive side to it.

Saturday I am officiating a state championship CX race (only 3 officials and no camera...fun!). Sunday I'm going to ride for a few hours and then have a nice birthday (58! Gack) with my wife.
