Countryside ride. Some dirt. Gravel.
A million flies every time I stopped.

One banana and light, dry rain.

50.2km on the MTB


Report: 18.10.13

Off to participate in the Tour de Jardin
on the single-speed.

Hope there aren’t any steep hills. I’m only
doing it for the free tea and flower exhibition.

... and free food.


Report: 16.10.13

Finished final draft of business plan
with attached Excel spreadsheets.

My mind is numb. I’m going to the
ride-to-work breakfast to network
or just eat something and hope they
aren’t serving instant faux coffee.

Business cards
Intestinal fortitude


New bibs

Polka dots.

(Hey, they were free…)


FBR: 5.7.13

New titanium saddle.

Getting ready to cut
the carbon handlebars

Ready to race.


Report: 31.03.13

Crash report: crashed new MTB. Somehow ended up on my back still clipped in to the pedals. Not a scratch on the $6,700.00 bike.

How did I do that? Best crash ever. A little dirt and gravel under the skin on right side.

This thing climbs like a goat and descends like an anchor. Er… Better watch the reverse camber curves and pea gravel though.



Superbike report: 26.03.13

Focus Raven hard tail with full XTR and Magura hydraulics. I went all out on this one: carbon bars, stem, seat post, frame and a manganese Fizik selle.

Sub 20 pounds with lock out Fox float race fork


Just got a 4K loan for a mountain bike

Oh man…

What to get?



Dual or hard tail?

Narrowed bike selection down to three:
Cannondale Flash 1 carbon himod with SRAM XX;
Merida X.O Pro with SRAM XO (both these are hard tails);
and a Cannondale Scalpel 1 dual suspension 26’r with Mavic
rims and XTR.

Having a serious road/TT bike background I think I’d like
The hard tails the best and the Flash in my size would weigh
A staggering 19.5 to 20 lbs. The custom build Merida is even less.

Now, financing. Goodness! They’re awfully $$$$


FBR: Lil'fish's new bike

Serious moment. First outdoor ride.
