ESPN.com - E-Ticket: So You Wanna Be An Olympian?
Who wears Orbea shorts and then rides a Specialized?
Is 50 to old to try out for the Olympics? Do they have an old fart division?
whats up with the arm warmers? one down one up? is that the new style?
Somebody probably gave her the shorts for free. Don't be a hater just because you don't have a Specialized. You can still buy one if you want so you can have a better chance at being an Olympian.
No that wouldn't be fair. I will not cheat by buying a Specialized. I will ride a real bike.
i thought i bought a real bike . this is what i just bought :
Wow, that's beautiful! Is that the new 07 colors? I've never seen that color scheme out there yet. What's the specs?
I think it's the Specailized that has made Gurp a better rider and enabled him to catch up to us. If he was on a "regular" bike I don't think he'd keep up.
it's an '06 Allez Comp with full 105 groupo. E5 steel alloy frame w/ carbon seat stays. rides pretty solid. i got SPD's on it and plan to change the front chainrings from 30-39-50 to 34-39-53.
we'll have to hook up for a road ride soon, maybe for next week's midnight ridazz?

There's no doubt that riding a Specialized is the best choice. But, actually, I think it's all the testosterone and EPO I've been taking since I started riding with you guys. Tastes yummy on waffles.
my parents gave me that stuff when i was 3, but when i turned 13 they took me off because they said i was getting too much media coverage and they didnt want to be blamed for doping me. They said once I was 18 I could go back on the stuff, but i decided not to. The little hurculese kid is my brother, I was bigger than him at his age though.
Here is my roadie contribution
My friend Simon just sent me a picture of his new road bike. 15.5lbs. He won't tell me how much he paid for it...it lists on the web site for $8,2000.
MIke and Glen, Simon is my friend that joined us on the Cannell Plunge Ride.
Sorry for the bad picture he used his phone to take picture.
