Some of you know of my penchant for spaghetti westerns, I love them. No matter how cheesy they are. There is something about the way they are shot, that has me hooked. Plus the deliciously analog quality of the film is something that younger generations will just not get to experience. And that the music is an integral part of the story. Hmm kinda like the original trilogy… but that is another story.
Not only is the title of this blog one of my favorite movies besides Star Wars, it also happens to be good not-necessarily-bike-related blog fodder.
Monday after arriving at the shop to deal with the melee of post Grinder wreckage, I found this at the door. The beer fairy had paid me a visit. Yay! No one has yet to own up to this, thus reinforcing my belief that there is actually a Beer Fairy. Thank you Beer Fairy!
And today, there was this! I got a care package from Team29 rider The Mutt. Thanks buddy!
I did a pretty terrible job of making my bike work properly after installing the SID, partly because of the proximity of the Grinder and the workload in the shop, but mostly because of laziness. I did manage a mostly dry training ride, my first since last Friday, which featured badly dragging brakes and weather that was…
Yeah, this is what we’ve had lately for weather, and it isn’t going to change before we head to NY. Slightly warmer and wetter than Gravel Grinder conditions, and definitely not that enticing for bike riding. BUT, having SSAP looming this weekend, I pulled on my big boy tights and found my winter boots and rode a new loop which actually felt pretty good (despite the dragging brakes). I didn’t bother to bring any electronics, figuring they would probably not like getting wet. I’ll Strava it another time.
And there you have it. A weak assed blog post.
