Phil Wood

I know this is bike porn stuff. The old Fat Chance needed a new bottem bracket and I still can't bare to put cheap crap on my old friend. Phil Wood puts such a sweet finish on everything I had to take a picture of it before putting it in the bike and never seeing how sweet it is again. I don't know why I think its so cool to put such effort in a finish that goes inside the bike. I know it doesn't really matter and that you can't see it once its in the bottem bracket, but I guess its like when a chic wears sexy underwear. You know its there and it makes you feel sexy.

Fort Story

This is right here in VB. For some of you that use to do the Conte's ride before 9-11 you may remember Fort Story Army base being part of the ride. After 9-11 it was eliminated as part of the ride because you had to check in at the gate w/ a picture id, which was not convenient w/ a group ride. Well, as of this labor day weekend civilians are no longer allowed to ride on the base even with proper Id. That sucks. It was one of the few places that has hills and low traffic. Why do changes around here seem to always decrease it's appeal to me? Well at least I got to ride one last loop.
