update...

So I've been away for a while... a few things have happened...

  1. I'm dating a certain someone. She's an astronomer and pretty cool to boot! This makes me happy.


  2. The bike pump and saddle bag I always kept on Gertie got stolen. This pisses me off. Seriously, unless you've got a roadie as well, when in the world would you ever need the following items:

    1. Bike pump for a presta valve

    2. Spare road bike tire with a presta valve

    3. Road bike tire levers

    4. Metric Hex wrench

    5. CO2 cartridge with adapter for filling up tires with presta valves


    Notice how I kept emphasizing presta valves? 90% of the bikes out there (mostly mountain bikes) have schrader valves. Really, there's no conceivable use for these items unless you're riding a road bike. Most bums and college-age budding thieves that I know aren't really into the road-biking scene. Hell, you can't even sell this crap on the black market, that I'm aware of. But still, all that "crap" probably cost me ~$60. Whoever it is, I certainly hope you got some use out of it rather than just tossing it in the nearest dumpster once you realized what it was. Bastard.


  3. Said girlfriend's brother is coming to town in a few days... I'm supposed to take him mountain biking. I have a feeling he's going to show me up.




That's all for now...

Yep, a thief turning your treasure into trash sucks. :( Quite a waste...

That reminds me of the time one of my suitcases got stolen out of my dad's truck on the way back to college for my senior year. That particular suitcase had nothing but notes and papers for my senior thesis, so I'm sure it got thrown in the dumpster as soon as they realized what they had, but it really put me behind to start the year.
