Thats right a scale, a marble, and a high-lighter. I even went onward and upward with a binder clip and some post it notes. Skills baby Skills.


Seems like every girl I talk to is in to Yoga, granted I only talk to about one a year so the sample size is not the best to gather data from. Never the less they all dig Yoga, and the conversation inevitably heads towards we should go do yoga together. I believe no man has ever just signed up for a yoga class on his own. All mens yoga started with a woman and his desire to see her in Yoga pants. I will be practicing the following positions so as not embarrass myself should the inevitable arise.

X-mas just around the corner

For the 12 days of Christmas I'm going to wear obnoxious sweaters. I've started to look online for the goods. If you have anything for my cause, let me know size medium to extra-large will probably work.

Somebodies Watching Me

I don't use Geico, so I have a squash instead.

Poor Blog

My blog has lost all attention from me. I got so bored, I couldn't write. I am know slightly less bored so I can again surf the fringe of insanity and offer up conjecture from one of my multiple personalities. I've also rediscovered The Chappelle show. My morning now start with coffee, and a you tube clip.

Mail Server

I may have posted this previously but.....How can I get an email telling me that email is down?
It is a scientific wonder of the digital age.

My bike is trying to kill me

I'm in a tw0 week struggle with my new bicycle. Lets begin I received a new Giant 29er, out of the box it is a fat lady. However, with a diet and work out plan, the flubber hides a tight little bikini body. Stripping her down was easy. The hard part was getting her to accept new parts. Here is the gremlin list.

Rear brake - how many time can you bleed it and it not work. I'm on par with BP for spilled oil.
Crank Bolts - how many of these can you loose? Oh and I'm using an MRP so it has funky washer that is impossible to find.
MRP- I hope it's in the right place. They use a 3 MM Aluminum bolt. The head is good for one use.
Front Brake - This is the loudest thing I have ever heard. I've done everything in the book to shut it's mouth.

Lets talk wheels now - they have a whole special section. Lets just say all this could be avoided if someone I know would order my Stan's wheels.

The wheels are not tubeless so you have to tape the eff out of them. They are a deep-V so the tape does not fit easily in the groove, further more the spoke holes are asymetric so they look like a drunk 4 year old drilled them wherever. Then my stans valves are too small for the giant valve hole. So I have to track down jumbo valves after pushing the small valve through the hole like 10 times. Inflate, re-inflate more tape, more cussing, more stans. (By this time my living room floor has a glossy sheen of stans on it) Yes, I do all my bike maintenance in my living room. Why? #1 I don't care #2 no wife of gf to tell me not to. The upside is my living room can probably run tubeless, I just don't know where to pump it up. So I get bot wheels to cooperate, and hold air for 24 hrs. The next day on my shakedown rid I noticed I mounted my front tire backwards, a directional tire backwards just doesn't work so well. Naturally I had to deflate and remount. Oddly this tire was quite nice to work with. It new that in less than 24hrs it would try to kill me. Luring me in to set the hook. Race day 10 minutes before the start, flat tire. Tube, lots of C02, time trial back to the car for pump more co2 and a tube. (because for the record tubes suck, I can't run them off-road) 10 minutes in to the race flat. But wait, I have a 26" tube on a 29 rim. This is brain damage, pure hell to do at the side of the trail in a race. Fairly pissed at this point. I really think I could have hung on the group for a low teens finish, or cracked the top 10. Instead I swept up the dregs of the pro-field. I can't tell you how excited I was to do 5 miles of flat fire road by myself in to the wind. It was so nice to hear stories of how everybody worked together in wicked pace-line in that section, must have been nice.

Back at home. Tire exchange. Specialized does have a great tire warranty, so at least my ripped $65 tire is not a total loss, but the shop is on the other side of town and naturally they work on the highway on the weekends. So I got to experience some high quality gridlock, on a sunny 95 degree day. ( my a/c works like crap, a whole other saga)

New tires, and another role of Stan's tape. Guess what that tape don't stick unless the rim is fully dry and free from old Stan's. So thats an hour of scrubbing and waiting. Now this tape is too wide. The tire pushes the tape down the sidewall of the rim, exposing the spoke holes. It's almost comical at this point.

Day 3 screw it lets ride tubes. Let me remind you I can't ride tubes. two flats on this ride. Oh and the tube effed up one of the tape jobs. eff me in the Goat A$$.

Yesterday. I got one tire mounted tubless and happy. I started on the second rim. I got about 1/4 the way around the rim, and out of tape. I have no more emotions left.

I got bored enough to update my blog again, or maybe it's because I'm in a good mood? I had breakfast with my favorite dog. Maybe it was the early morning ball throwing?

CJ Sports Timing Hates Me

So I completed the first my "real" mtb race of the season and I was robbed of my result. How much more can I do when I talk to the official and confirm my finish. Just for the record I did not DNF Teva. They killed me at the National Championships, for $95 I just wanted a correct result. Way back in the day, they almost stole a race win from me. I must have pissed them off somewhere.

Burrito Packin Protocol

Stay tuned I'm working on a tortilla that will greatly simplify the packing of said burrito. Graphics and Diagrams to follow. But it basically is a tortilla with lines and color coding that enable you to properly fill a burrito, but yet still be able to properly roll it up. Oil spill in the Gulf? This is a real problem that needs to be solved.
