It's nice to have something different. I told this story to my wife & although her eyes glazed over for most of the story, at the end of it when I got to the part obout the brake being different & special, she said, "and I have you, dear." Ya, that's my loving wife!
This is the way that Lucy deals with me too!
I am in Germany in my tiny apartment here (I think a real estate agent would call it a 'studio', I call it a 'room') and there is lots of snow outside. I recently read 'Boy Racer' which is Mark Cavendish's book, and it has re-awakened a lot of my techy love of bikes. Not only that, but I also really want to follow the Pro Tour again this year. I got completely switched off to it follow scandal after scandal, and although I accept that things are probably better, I know the fight isn't over. It is still beautiful though, and Cav manages to capture some of the suffering that we all experience when riding, and it was good to read of his passion. You can tell he is still in love with the sport, which is refreshing, and great.
This rekindled passion has seen me reading up on who is going where for the coming year, and riding for whom. It has also seen me reading the forums (and posting) and wanting to consume as much to do with cycling as possible. I am now working my way through the FWB site, and as such thought that I better see what my old made Pritch was up to. Pritch and I last chatted at Interbike, and he was talking about Di2.... I found that it was high time I read up and here I am, looking at Victoria. Pritch's child like obsession for the toys is something I love.
Dude, I have questions for you...
1. Why Victoria? Anything to do with Pendleton?
2. Where, what and why - the Hookers? Out of production, I am guessing, but what is the story with them?
