Or, for those Simpsons fans, the bibshorts feel like Flanders' ski suit. Like nothing at all, nothing at all, nothing at all!

Got a new JDRF Bibshort in the mail today, I'm excited to try them out tomorrow.

Haven't been able to ride since my other pair was worn on Friday morning, and couldn't be washed after that nasty storm on Friday night knocked out power until a few hours ago. Not to sound like an advert for Hincapie, but they are like my CGM and pump, I'll never go back to anything else!

Whatever John! You were riding just as strong, nice job!!!

Had a great day riding the Tour de Cure ride today in Northeastern Ohio. We did 65 miles. Mike did a great job pulling me in the last 20 miles. Pictures are on my page.

I did the route of the Cleveland tour de cure today. Just for practice. Solo, made some wrong turns so I did 80 miles. It is an interested route.

Fantastic live life to the fullest way to go sold my MTB last summer Need to get a 29er too, that Scott is a Beautiful bike, I have 2 Carbon road bikes that are great. Love the Carbon,

I am right there with you, I am working a second job, just to fund my MTB/Road cycle habit. I recently bit the bullet and bought a 2012 Scott Spark 29 Pro. Carbony goodness. The man says as long as I make the payments he won't break any of my legs:) One college education beginning and another one perfectly timed to begin in 4 years from this fall.

I broke my Cannondale RUSH in December of last year on a ride, Mike, so I got a store CC and bought a Speshy Comp FSR 29. That was just before my 53rd birthday, so I guess I'm *that* guy, right? Jeez. I'm now paying $200/mo. same-as-cash on the bike. It's the only way I could do it (staring down the barrel of two college educations myself...).

Comment by miketosh on June 26, 2012 at 8:29am

I say "Go for it, buy that 29er, you only live once", but alas, I don't live by that guidance myself. Maybe in 12 years when the mortgage is paid and the (three) college/wedding accounts are funded well, and the oldest is out of the house, I can begin splurging on myself.

Unfortunately that means I'll get all those "Oh, he's in his mid-40's, must be a midlife crisis" remarks, but I guess you have to live with it. I'd go cry to my mom that people are picking on me, but she'll be the first in line with the jokes! Haha.
