This this how i feel sometimes

like a misfit amongst friends. i try to blend in, but it never happens....

i also got yelled at for just being a "man". not that i did anything wrong. some other man did wrong and i got looped in the "all men" catagory.
.
nice!!

here is another chart that my readers like so much. scroll down far enough to see the other one. much funny.
another day of feeling blah...took the dogs out on the mountain for a while and then rode the single speed at the dog park while they did their dog thing.
.
sometimes i think that my advance immune system attacks whatever is trying to get me sick and i feel blah. instead of getting sick i get 1-2 days of "not up to snuff".
.
i still don't have all the parts for the jet9 build, but am really close. parts are coming in from all over thanks to ebay and i am still missing a crankset and pedals.
can't wait to get-er-done. would like to ride it at red rock rampage in saint george, intermountain cup #1 race.
.
.
on a side note i researched how to change my vassago bandersnatch into a single speed. all i really need is a eno ecentric hub on the rear and take some parts off. i already have a super light weight carbon fork waiting to go on. all i need is the bottom race that is coming from crank brothers in the next couple of days. that will save money to be able to convert back and forth. and save room with one less bike. they are adding up again my roomate informed me.
.
the f29 front fork is going on the jet9 until i get a lefty hub as i already have a carbon fiber 110 sl lefty fork for it. the 321 adapter is allready to go as well to make the conversion from 1.5 to 1 1/8 headset.
looking at a final weight around 23-24 lbs for the jet9. maybe less depending on the saddle and tires i choose.
.
on paper it says 21 lbs complete, but they always are a little low due to grease and stuff. so that is "weight weenie" for a jet9 and expensive, although i got things cheap due to taking my time shopping over the last three months
