I'm 5'10" with a 29 inch inseam. 54cm seems to work pretty well for me. I've been shopping on craigs list and ebay. Mostly just wishful thinking right now. I'll ride this loaner until my friend needs it back, I've asked a few times and he always says "meh, when ever". Nice, I put another 38 on it today.

A pic of the new bike. Great deal from a friend of mine, $900.00 Plus two sets of wheels. It's a cycle cross so I can put the off road tires on for the comute to work. Made the first comute tonight. 18.26 miles to the house. a little slow because I have to ride on the dirt shoulder for a while in some places. avg. 13.7 miles per hour. Not bad.

My friends, I am going to be riding in the Ride 2 Recovery Memorial Challange from 28 May-2 June. I will be riding more than 350 miles to raise money for the Ride 2 Recovery program. If you are willing and able please visit this site to donate to the cause. It's a great organization who helps in the mental and physical recovery of wounded veterans with cycling as the core activity. I have started the ball rolling with a $100.00 donation from our familiy. My goal is to raise $1,500.00 for the program this year.

O.K. I've dated around, I rode a few different bikes and I've finally tied the knot with the Giant Advanced Defy 3. Awesome bike!!! Wow, eats up the bumps on the road and is light. With these tires it weighs in at 19 lbs. I could prolly change out a few things from the tires to the pedals to loose more weight, but I really don't need to right now.

The tires! What about the seat? It looks as comfortable as sitting on the thin end of an axe blade.

I wonder if he has a sense of humor? Maybe I could get him to autograph an empty birdshot shell. That would be so fucking cool. The venue where he is appearing is owned by my friends, I'll see if he's staying for dinner. Who knows what may happen after a few bottles of wine?

It's hard to tell from your picture, Joe, but the best and cheapest place to lose weight is your self. Your bike will be ten pounds lighter when you are.

That used to crack us up at the shop. Some fat bastard would come in and start buying up fancy wheel sets and titanium doodads (shaving ounces) which we'd happily sell him, but maybe he should ride a heavier bike until he gets in shape and down to racing weight? Of course, now I'm the fat bastard... I felt stronger last weekend though. I'll be fast or blow up my heart trying.

Ask LeMond if he was the last clean winner of the Tour after you get some wine in him.
