Test Ride....

Judy and I ate at Arby's tonight and then stopped at the shop to see Jackal for a minute. He and Bottke were working and we took pot shots at the breeze for awhile and then I asked to test ride the Raleigh XXIX single speed. First time I've ridden a 29er. Kinda cool. Can't tell much from riding over a few curbs at slow speed in the parking lot. The saddle was too low and the tires were HARD but it was still kinda cool. The only word that Judy spoke was a very definitive "NO". If looks could kill, I'd be attending my own funeral real soon. I guess that settles that. For now.

Ride safe.

Peace out, yo!

there will be fudge rounds at the funeral but she won't send any with me....

chris.... i think she's serious about the "no more bikes" thing. it always works better to just bring one home than to take her to the bike shop with me. no sense of humor.

Ha ha! :) That's awesome, I know that look all too well!

Here's a tip I learned from my Grandma: She would buy a dress and resist the temptation to get it out right away. She'd hang it in the closet for awhile first. When she wore it, Grandpa would say, "Is that a new dress?", to which Grandma would reply, "No, it's been in the closet awhile now."

Ha! Too funny! Wish that'd work with bikes!

I'm guessing she'd be a little more forgiving if not for the new Colnago ...

g-ted.... i might try grandma's method one day. that's a pretty good price y'all have on that raleigh, though i was thinking karate monkey. if i picked up a monkey in black i could build it over the winter and she'd never know. can you get studs for a 29er?

bryan.... i think you're probably spot on in that.

dea.... that's good to know! congrats on making your goals at great glenn!
