Okay, Mike.  I'm leaving it up to you to get John on board.  Do you want to ride this weekend?  I'm doing a longer ride on Saturday, but planning a short one on Sunday if you're interested.

John on board, that's a good one. My back is f'd up but getting better soon riding this weekend.

Other than your back being messed up, I'm not sure I understand what you're saying here.  Are you riding this weekend?  If you'd like, meet me at Palmetto at 7AM.  I'm riding with Phoenix and Kat (pretty sure you've met them) and a woman from my gym who is just starting out.

As soon as I get the front derailleur shim from calfee, Jeff and I are going to ride. I have 2 different bikes I haven't ridden yet after a crazy bike acquiring winter.

Just be warned, there is always a good chance that I will ride about a mile before I get bored and go do something else.  >:D

^ I figured that I'd have to take one of your watches and put it around my seat tube and make you chase me.

 

 

Now I think about it though you'd likely just shoot me... Well that and you're probably fitter than me at this point.

Yeah right.  I took the winter off. I am struggling running 5ks at this point and have not been in worse shape in a while.  I also have not been a bike in months.

It should have been so no riding this weekend.

Mike and John, I'm doing a longish ride on Saturday, but am looking to do a short, slow recovery ride on Sunday.  Wanna join me?

Are you saying we are short and slow because you would be half right. We will be driving home from Wanee Sunday morning.

I've decided that I'd like a work stand for basic maintenance and washing.  While I know the HC way, I'd really like to not spend much on this.  Are there good <$100 stands or do I just need to bite the bullet and get a Park Tools stand?

Ken,

 

Either ^^^ what Dan said or keep an eye on CL.  I've seen some good deals roll through NH for stands and you're in a much higher density area.  Also, I own a Feedback stand as well and it is very nice but mine is not in budget (about double).

Got a whole 2 miles in on the Spot today, with an hour break in the middle at the gym.  I seem to remember how to work the bike, so that is good.

Decided it was time for me to join the 21st century so I bought myself a carbon full suspension bike with carbon/aluminum wheels.

I'm pretty sure I'm going to end up in the hospital by the end of the year, this bike just begs to be ridden at ludicrous speed on every downhill.
