friday night par-tay

who the fuck wants to work today

not me. everyone left for sea otter... bastards. i'm so jealous. i wanted to go so bad. but probably not as bad as i'll want to go next year. time'll pass and i'll get over it. maybe we'll take casey to the water park next weekend and pretend we are near the ocean. pffft.
i'll probably pretty much surf the web this morning, fall behind at work and then work my ass off this afternoon to catch up. sounds like a plan.
things to do today on the web: bikes of course, cameras, gps, tees, shoes, qbp on-line to add more shit to my basket, and i'm sure i'll come up with others.


okay... bikes

i can't ride 'em and i want 'em.
i have never been a big fan of trek bikes, my only reason pretty much is that everyone has them. but i continue to drool over the new carbon hardtail, mainly because i am in love with the paintjob. it reminds me of one of the last year's homegrown's paintjob. i loved it so. i still think about that bike. the homegrown that is...
i have a hard time with carbon for mtb though. and the price, egads.
so bikes i want for the summer. i have 2 electra cruisers picked out. one is a black flame jobby with blue rims and the other is daisy filled oranges and greens. i'm leaning towards the black flame jobby. i can't post pics because electra's site is flash.
another one i'm still looking at is the gf triton. it's upright position will do me good over the summer, but getting my leg over the toptube... well, get a video camera. i like that because when i spit this kid out i can put some bullhorns or dropbars or moustache bars or whatever.
maybe both a cruiser and the triton? you know how it is. you can never ever have too many bikes to pedal around.
i have been thinking ti mtb too. i just can't get over the cost when you can have steel at a steal compared to it. i may do a desalvo next. we'll see. it's what i wanted before i ordered the spot. but michael at spot threw a deal at me i couldn't refuse.
but first things first, finish the sass. it's dying for a blue headset and to have the chrome fork put on. the matte black just isn't cutting it.
john's xc bike should be arriving real soon. that'll preoccupy an evening for sure. maybe we'll have people over and celebrate it's kickassness.
john's new steel cross bike needs some perty parts to hang on it as well... just waiting on a bar.
and then all the wheels on the market right now. i've been obsessed with wheels. industry nine, dt swiss, stan's rims, ooh la la. i love wheels. anyone want some pink king hubs laced to dt swiss rims? disc? j/k. i think.
i also want a new digital camera... anyone have any good suggestions?
i want so much shit right now my mind is spinning on how i will get my hands on it all.

okay, i'm biased but


I have always thought XTR stuff looked good. But I always preferred 1:1 for mtb WAY better, even before I was employed at SRAM. But that X is fugly.



i'm so tired today. my day was going to be taking pics and playing with bikes but i'm exhausted for some reason. naptime... maybe i'll be motivated and refreshed when i wake up.
john's out riding with some teammates and i think is heading out again tomorrow.
i need to find something to pass the time, but i guess if i'm tired, sleep will do. i just can't bring myself to sleeping on the couch while casey is watching blues clues. ughhh.


i hate my blog

i have nothing to write about. the only thing really going on for me right now is none of my clothes fit. it's irritating.
no new bikes for me. i'm hoping to get a cruiser for the upright position. riding my mtb, it sucked bending over to reach the bars. and my road bike, forget it. it's between two cruisers. both are internal 3 speeds. i'll have to decide.
john's blur is done. looks good. now we are waiting for the xc frame to come in... end of the month hopefully. that'll be fun to build up.
