Extra! Extra! Read All About It!

I'm proud to announce the birth of a bouncy baby Bicicletta! Wrecking Ball is the proud father of a young beauty named Trance. Tomorrow morning will be the maiden voyage.

I have to say, I'm a little envious. It takes me forever to get my rides set up where they feel like home, but I still love to build new rigs. It doesn't matter if it's just a grocery getter, I can't wait to have it off the stand and on the road. I'm building a commuter for my wife right now, and that bike makes me just as stoked.

Anyway, tomorrow should be cool and grey, like a good winter day ought to be. Perfect day for a nice long mountain bike ride. Technical trails to keep the speed down, and the body temp up. Can't wait. Hopefully I dotted all my i's and crossed all my t's while building W.B.'s bike, and we have minimal mechanical stops. Little Ball is in town for the holidays, and even K.W. claims he'll be on his bike for the first time since his biophysical breakdown. Should be good prep for this year's Felasco trip. Hope everybody gets in a good ride this weekend before the Christmas Eve/Day hoopla gets too out of hand. See ya on the trails.

Yes, yes. Here too in Germany we ride the hard trails to make ourselves hotter.

I didn't check in last night before slipping into a mouth breathing coma! Sorry Worm!
I just want to say that calling you a mechanic or wrench or any other confining term is simply inadaquate. You sir, are an artist and I will midget wrestle anyone says different.
I really didn't have any complaints and the new ride was sweet. Thanks for putting up with me for seven hours in a row!
Brudda, you dakine bra!
