The Waffle House Chronicles...

No crit or riding at all last night...what a bummer. :( Such is life though. If I were more hardcore I suppose I could've ridden but that would have just been insanity. Anyways, I saw the movie Waiting last night. It was basically a more crude version of Empire Records...I loved it! I highly recommend it to all who love crude comedies. Highly recommend it! Tried to watch the movie Mother In Law...failed. Jess hated it too and we stopped about 40 minutes in.

A co-worker e-mailed me this Ebay auction. It is pretty hilarious!!! Hoping to get some good riding in at lunch and tonight! Rain forecasted for the next four days not only hinders cycling in puts in doubt the Levis trip on Saturday...Looks like we'll call this a rest week.

Update: We may be out of the 175mm XT. Suddenly, this crank has gotten very hot—maybe ‘cause it shifts well. Or something. So, anyway, we’ve issued an XTR crank for this replacement—I hope you don’t mind! The cosmetic won’t be quite the same, but it is lighter for the same strength, and best of all, it fits the XT BB


  • I did like this answer to one of the questions in the auction.

    "The car has cycling stickers and tons of Taco Bell rappers under the seat."

    Who are these "Taco Bell Rappers?"

    Thanks for the message last night, I got it late and I think everything's in the clear. Oh and on a random note, I saw the Butterfly Effect, good movie, but the Directors Cut or Alternate Ending is something I think I have to check out too.

  • Holy crap, the Riz? Are you serious? I hated Butterfly Effect...but I couldn't stop watching it and was glad I did. I heard the alternates are even more messed...

    Yes, Taco Bell rappers!!! Primus once said something about getting a 7-layer from Taco Bell in a song.

  • What will they upgrade you to when you break the XTR crankset?

  • They'll probably make me ride their Saint downhill crankset next. Only question I ride the XTR or ebay it and try to buy an XT since I already have the left crank arm. I'll probably just ride the XTR.

  • I've heard the Hone crankset is stiff and strong, plus its lighter than Saint. Or, you could skip over the double entirely and get one of those 15 lb Truvativ single-ring freeride things. Make sure you get one with just a 30t ring, though - I don't want you to catch me on the flats or descents.
