What's in da baaaahhhhhxxxxx? Some parts. Darker blue than we thought. Happiest kid in the world in this moment. **BRENT**

Alec is 12 today and asked for a "proper bike."

Do you have a ballpark timeframe for your Kirk yet?

 

 

 

 

It *would* have been near the beginning of 2014 year, but discussing with Dave its been pushed back to about Fall 2015 more  or less.

 

I'm currently seeing a Sports Physical Therapist for the bulged disc in my lower back, and will be off the road bike till at least Jan. or maybe a year or longer, the latter which is his assessment.

 

Anyway the new time table hopefully allows enough time to decide on a new fit, if needed. I'm thinking a hill climb bike with wider tires and discs would be pretty cool.

Wow.  Gotta say that sucks.  I hope physical therapy works for you.

 

Did 60 miles with the Selle Anatomica right out of the box.  Perfect.  I'm now on my way to visit my baby after receiving this text ten minutes ago.

Thanks Brent!

It's true what they say: pics don't do it justice. Joe Bell's paint job is amazing. I can't stop smiling. It's better than I planned.

Raffy, I'm going with a mid compact. My physical therapist wanted me to have a triple, but that's not happening. 52/36. I think.

That is really cool!  Your choice with the mid compact is something that I've been giving a lot of thought to and it seems to fill a good spot that a lot of people have been looking for.  One of the  things I really liked that Dave does is to leave a lot of steerer tube for bar height adjustment.  I've left mine slightly long and swap spacers if my back is giving me trouble.

Got in a short 20 miles on the Gunnar with the SMP saddle.  I still like it a lot, though need to get in a 50-miler + to be sure.  The Selle Anatomica was just fine out of the box doing a bit over 60 miles, and this SMP could be as well.  Now seems like I have a couple options for bum.  Nice.

Switched from the Selle SMP hybrid to a cheapo, Selle Italia Q-bik Flow and did 30 miles yesterday.

No more rubbing problems but there is a spot on the right side (where the rails "attach") that poked me wrong with my old, worn out Endura shorts.

 About to find out if I have the same results with the Pearl Izumi Attack Shorts or....

It's noon, Vicki is on vacation but I don't see any bike pics. Something is wrong ;)

 

Unrelated note: I downloaded an app to my android phone that will let my wife live-track my rides. She's still not happy about me riding on roads by myself but I think it will help.
