So after my "surprise fun day" at the Lazy 5 I really wanted to make the most of my time Sunday. So after I got home from church I loaded up my pockets and hit the road, on my road bike. I wanted the most bang for my buck time wise so loading up and heading down the road in a car to go ride was out of the question. That's always been my one complaint about riding mtn bikes. You have to load up to go ride. Seems like you cancel out any good carbon killing by driving the car to do it.
Oh well, we do it for fun not to be green!
The best part of my bike is people don't know what to think of it. Cycling is a fickle sport! Bike shops stay in business selling people stuff they absolutely don't need, much less can use to the level it is designed for, yet people have to have the latest and greatest no matter what it is. Don't get me wrong I have carbon cranks all Ultegra shifter bits and Cane Creek brakes. With XRP wheels and Vuluta hubs. Yep it's pretty sweet!
But when they see the Bridgestone on the down tube they aren't sure if it's an exotic or a POS. Bridgestone quit making bicycles 20 years ago. I like that, the last thing I want to do is fit in with everybody else!!!!!!
