What’d you do today?

Aside from watching the upset game of the year (and winning on it) I was out in the garage getting some one on one workout(s) with my tool(s).

Word. Giants are for real. It’s all about the NFC East. Tom Brady who? What? Huh?

The other week I saw a LeMond frame for sale over at sellwoodcycle.com.

Any color you want, but it’d be like blue and cream.

I got in touch with my man Tonkin right quick and hammered out the details.

Frame with original fork and headset was soon to be mine. Fuck that one inch threadless carbon nonsense. I rocked that for years already. I’m over it. First thing I did was slide the matching steel fork back on in ‘er.

Like you wouldn’t.

Today I finished dressing her up with 8 speed Chorus. Wrapped the bars right before halftime.

I don’t know what I’m happier about; my new bike or the Giants beating the Patriots.

It’s a win – win up in here.

  1. I was going to mock you for putting on the carbon over the OEM but then I read further. Not that I don’t have a carbon for, I just wouldn’t put one on that bike.

  2. Dude,

    Just got home from hanging out with some Flagstaffist dude that may have shat the proverbial brick.

    Oh, and The Pun and I drank the rest of Sporto’s dry…

    Fitty

  3. Big Jonny, et al–

    The game: I missed it, I was skiing, but HELL YEAH like I said someone needed to fucking stop those fucking fucks and the Giants did it!!

    The bike: flippin’ sweet, dude. I have two steel LeMonds in the stable here…

  4. I’ve been getting my ’88 Paramount ready for the Ragby up here in Iowa. The Aluminum GIOS is just too much of an ass beater for drinking, beer sliding, (fill in from here).

  5. Great game, but I just found out that some guy from Arizona got his paws on a bike I’d love to own that was ten fucking miles from my house all along. Damn.

  6. I have the kestrel fork like that with the steel steer tube. old school fork mixed with a steel frame.

    ditch the wheels and look for some old mavics.

    like yer setup.

  7. I think the problem is not with the wheels, but with the baby blue Vittorias. Other than that it’s classic. Where did you find an 8sp Chorus gruppo that wasn’t entirely knackered? It’s got to be 15 years old…

  8. Blue? Those are gray & black Vittoria Action HSD23s. Next time, use better pics…

    The kit came at me from five different directions. Just fell together.

    Funny how life works out that way sometimes.

  9. Nice with the fork. I gotta send you the Bianchi pics

    BTW you should a gone 10 Speed down tube like I did yo. Shimano makes the shut for real

  10. yeah…keep the ventos is my vote.

    Nice bike. The head tube looks as big as my seat tube.

  11. Yeah, I need my eyes checked… Still tires should be black. Always. Forever. Just like a Model T Ford.

    Keep the Ventos. Ride the lovely beast.

  12. I can do black. My man Big Gay Randy (BGR) called me out on the tires too. He said, “Those things suck.”

    Hard to argue with that.

    Looks like I’ll be diggin’ in the crates for something new here in a bit. Might as well be out in the garage fucking with my bike collection – there is a foot (at least) or new snow outside.

    At least we’ll have a healthy forest come summer with fire danger held back to something more reasonable that “you like in a tinder box.”

  13. …lost some serious money on the ‘pats’ didja, jake ???…

    …& btw, fuck is spelled f-u-c-k…

    …just sayin’…
