Back in Black.......................

Bar tape that is!!!!! I have never had anything but celeste bar tape on this bike. Decided to change it up a little new tape, seat, rims! Man i can't wait to ride this bike maybe this weekend? Paging Hightop! Let's ride dude. I was going to call you back but it was to late. Uh call me at work. Did anyone else get outside today? Wolfman and I road out to the blue tower on east vandorn and then over to eagle. We hit a section of minimum maintenance that wasn't ready to be ridden yet! Got a little mud on our bikes oh well it was mostly clay let it dry and it breaks off in big chunks. We hit the mud and then shortly after we were on the mopac heading back to town and the wolfman smiles and says "My tires look like powdered dougnuts" It was pretty darn funny at the time. The mopac was real soft but didn't throw anything up on the bikes which is strange because at the very least you get dusted. Got home and had to get some bike repair done. Man my cross bike has the hand me down parts that still look all pretty and shit because they have spent most of there life on a road bike. The rear hub on that damn bike comes loose every once and a while. Could it be because the bikes been through wilderness a bunch? Or becauseI jump it off of curbs with cups of hot coffee bolted to the handlebar? Or maybe because it was on a road bike for three years who's owner used for everyday milage? Well this cheap son of a gun is just gonna tighten them up every 3-6 months and bitch about it everytime I have to do it! It is a cross bike after all.

Looked at the pic again and reminded me of pantani. Didn't dude die like a year ago almost to the day?

its a shame the way pantani went out like that, alone and in a hotel room, possibly hooked and the junk

yea, it sure is a shame about ol' elephante', all alone and all that junk going to waste. prime example that friends don't let friends party alone.
