Hmmm, what to blog about? It's 9:32pm on Oct. 30th, 2005. I feel like I'm back in high school and have a writing assignment due in the morning. I was and still am a procrastinator. Well I guess I will try and write something here daily for anyone interested in the life and times of a bike addict. Not much happened today. I worked at the bike shop http://www.skiandbikeshop.net from noon to five with Dave "5 ears" Sears, "pataloha" Austin and "The Shuffler" herself, Melissa. Not a whole lot happening on a Sunday. There was a crazy guy in a poncho that bought the old booth from behind the store for $20. That was the highlight of the day. Other than that I contemplated what cyclocross bike I want to buy for the upcoming Trans Iowa race in April. http://www.transiowa.blogspot.com I am torn between three choices. Trek "XO1", Kona "Jake the Snake" or Kona "Major Jake" frameset. The XO1 and Jake the Snake would both be great bikes, but with Major Jake, I could build it up how ever I want. It would also give me an excuse to get some Mavic Ksyrium SL wheels for my road bike. I could then use my old road wheels for the Major Jake. Decisions, decisions. Anybody else have an opinion? Well I think that is good enough for a first post. I better get some sleep. I'm working for "Harmful Harmon" tomorrow night at Rydells. That means the Ironman shift for me. Good Night!

You know you'll get a frameset just so you can get the Ksyrium's. Admit it.

Yes, I admit I will most likely get the Major Jake so I can buy the Ksyrium's. To bad you aren't going to be around for the CX race in SP on the 20th. Me and Sears were talking about making a trip out there to check it out.

Yeah, that would have been cool if you guys could have come and visited. Another time I guess...

The X0-1 comes in a frameset too, so that's still an option for you. But I bet scandium would be nice and fast!

Just like Vino.
