I don't have a substantive post today. But I did ride the Sporty Sport Bike across the city to pick up the Sag Wagon earlier today. It's a long story, and I don't have time to get into it before quitting time on a Friday afternoon.
I missed my turn. I ended up going almost a mile out of my way. But it was all good, as I got to ride in a relatively nice day (if not windy anyway), and I'm itching to get out on the SpSpB (not to be confused with the Simply Simple Bike) again soon.
The other day I finally test rode a Marin Pine Mountain 1. I agree with Bike Snob that if I ever get my hands on one (again) Marin will have to hunt me down to pry it out of my cold dead hands. I took it over curb and snow and slush and dodged pedestrians in downtown Richmond. It was awesome.
