planet cross

snuck-out for a cpl hrs tonight w/andy in the Fells. had to really work the limited light, where in the hell did summer go!? legs been feeling slow on the trails so threw a race wheel and an old michelin comp s light i re-discovered in the depths of the basement on the deluxe. guess the baby has me in nesting mode, been cleaning and organizing shit all over the place - at home, work, wherevah shit needs organizing, i'm on it like vegans on soy. and out of the depths have emerged bike parts galore. in a stroke of luck been using Stans recently - which i now deem the miracle liquid - thrown-hole ridden race tires are reborn. back to tonight, was a good quick rip, some hard efforts, some chattin', hopefully just what andy needed to wake-up his legs for this wknd's shenandoah 100.

snagged bruno's '04 planet cross yesterday. it's pretty colors. just need to find some wheels, a little love in the way of cables and pads, and it's time to rock the cross scene. am a pure newbie, it'll be fun to learn something new - also never ridden anything other than campy, so need to get this puppy out on the road soon, get the shitmano shifting down. may even find a field to run around hoping on and off, but that's pretty ambitious.

I'm currently being bitten by the cross bug, looking for some stuff to sell to fund a bike build. Should be fun.
