Nothing....nothing much at all

I'm riding more than most of the people around here.  Ah Seattle riders, a little ice and they scatter.

Not a lot, but enough to keep me in practice.  Stupid lights have been an issue.  My MagicShine batteries have been problematic and the Kickstarter light I ordered is not here.  Even better there has been absolutely no communication from the developer Barry Beams.  In desperation I spent $50 on a L&M Mako.  It is great from basic commuting, but not something I would trust in fog or rain or at high speeds.

Let's see, oh!  Lance used drugs to win.  Huh.

My plan for the S2S is in place.  The only downside is the 4th of July in on Thursday and the race is on the 6th, which means there should be lots of drunks to dodge and lots of traffic to contend with over a created long weekend.  I'm hoping that if I do well on it AND I can get a lot of other pieces together I will have the ability to ride the Coup de Cascades.

Weight is coming along well.  Down to 176.  Only 13 pounds to go.

Drooled over the new Trek Domane.  When I can afford it, that will be my new bike.  Saw one of Ebay for about four grand.  BUT, it was ridden and signed by Chris Horner.  That's nice.  I like Chris and all, but I just want the frame.

So dodging to a dream list:
Trek Domane 6 series
Campagnolo Record EPS
MadFiber wheels

Yup just need about eight thousand dollars and I'm there.  Do I need that much bike?  No (well the frame for me would be a good fit), but that doesn't change the want.  And damnit I would be faster.

Looking to get a ride in tomorrow.  I have lots of routes planned out for training, I just have to get out and ride them.  Is summer here yet?

See...nothing.  Until next time.
