I'm alive again
Well, I had a rough spring. I was severely injured in an accident while riding and I limped home. Then it was what to do, what to do. Well I got packed up and shipped out to IF and the bad news was delivered. I was a goner. Was I going to be rebuilt like Steve Austin or was I going to the recycle box to live again? Sadly the recycle box was in my life ;oh well, I can live on in dreams, right? All of my measurements were taken during the autopsy. Then off to the scrap heap went my hot pink tubes.
But that was not the end of the story, the silver badge stayed out of the scrap heap. It would live on as they say. Unlike Steve Austin that was rebuilt better than before, I was copied and made better than before. My tubes are even more butted than before and I became even more responsive than before. To commemorate this momentous moment, I was rebuilt with all of my old components, except the wheels and cogs. They are new. A beautiful set of Chris King Red Single Speed Disc hubs paired with double butted black DT Swiss spokes and silver nipples and new Mavic 717D rims. Now, all I need to do is swap the fork, stem, handlebar out for some lighter components and I'll be under 16 pounds and extremely beefy. With the heavier components, I'm still svelte at 18.

music: Goverment Issue
mood: Much better now
I was in a foul mood awhile ago, but I have finally been put back together again so that I can be ridden. I was sent back to the factory for a new seat insert and a quick freshening up. Now I that I need is for it to become spring and the weather to freshen up and become warm and windy.

I have been a little negligent lately. The weather just hasn't been that cooperative for my pedaler lately. Either extreme cold or cold and windy or snow and ice or just another excuse, if you ask me. I was getting ridden regularly up until the middle of December '07 and then nothing since. Spinning is what he has been doing. Nothing like going nowhere fast if you ask me.
But in other news, I got a new set of wheels this last summer. A very nice set of Chris King Disc in Pink with black spokes and silver nipples and black A317 rims. Very nice, they shaved almost 2 pounds of weight from the previous set. The new tires helped as well. Now if I could only get pedaled more, then I'd be able to become faster and be able to keep up with my 26" cousins.
