Aye. I remember that. You guys who live near the US/Canada border probably know about the MEC. That's where I get my stuff. I'll bet they mail order down to you in CO. It's a co-op so you always get a decent deal...

Or try REI. They're a co-op as well.

*cough*--corporate co-op...

Cause you're so beautiful
Like a tree
Or a high-class prostitute
You're so beautiful
Mmm, you could be a part-time model
But you'd probably have to keep your normal job

Car back in garage today (long story; no big deal), so I hauled my bike out of the basement.

Um.  Man, it's in even worse shape than I thought.

(1 working brake + 1 good tire + two working gears) x 3.2 miles x 40 years old = I nearly threw up

Ugh.  Also, I forgot the bike lock, which I left sitting next to the door so I wouldn't forget it, but then, naturally, I didn't take the bike out through the kitchen, so I didn't see the lock.  That was some good plan, you betcha.

Naturally, this makes me want to spend a bunch of time and money to get the bike into proper working condition, but of course we may have snow here as soon as this weekend, so I'll probably wait until spring.  And possibly just get a newer, better bike.  I dunno.

Newer better bike would be the way to go. Maybe you could trade your old bike in somewhere...I saw that a bike shop here in Ballard was doing that...

I've never traded a bike in, but my bike is basically worth whatever the frame and kickstand are worth.  Everything else on it is gone to shit.

What I'd really like to do is build a bike from specific parts this spring, but after the last two computers I tried to assemble I'm afraid I've lost my confidence in the hobby process.  I feel like I'd probably wind up ordering six different chains and not be able to get any of them to fit, or something.  But we'll see.

Oh hey, speaking of cycling... I was driving the other day and a cyclist waved thanks to me for paying attention to him.  So that's definitely a step up from the middle finger.
Shake your groove thing.

He was probably just waving because he'd never seen a Diamante before.

A Diamante? I've never heard of that.
