I've been out of town for the past week and I have no idea what's going on. Jay gets a new bike for his birthday (a multiple of ten, but I won't say which one), but will he keep it? Linus races cyclocross, but does he win? Ben rides in the snow, but does Ali leave any tracks? Hollywood and Pirate are doin' stuff in other states, but does anyone have any idea what? Adam moves into the lead for the most frequent blog-post commenter, but does he still even ride? Who knows.
As for me, I've been in San Francisco rockin' (pun intended) the American Geophysical Union conference with thousands of other nerds. Lots of cyclists in SF. Fixies are everywhere, but so are useful bay-area bikes that have brakes and shifters. Nothing to write home about, except for this gem, which I discovered parked right next to my friend's car:
It's a Circle A named Audra. Well worn, like a nice pair of jeans. And while steel is real, aluminum also holds great promise in California:
This one is for the BSNYC loyalists, like Ali. AYHSMB is out. 2010 is all about SYBBHS-O.
