cycling life insights-
wax poetic, crank turners?
let's just find some hills.

what's in safety kit?
300 foot rope, pistol,
safety blanket, bong

j-ku no smoke grass
clean for years 'cept alcohol
riding kicks my a*s

humma get new house
now: "tom's heavy cruiser shop"
left side of garage

'puter and cadence?
friend, spin 'til you bounce off seat
then cadence too high

keep at this, three months
then spin faster before bounce
still don't know cadence

afraid of ebay?
you are wise; to profit here,
you should be seller.

what bike I want free?
i'll take any free bike, Mike
but that Look looked nice!

lance on OLN
Dish: retrn on investment
fire up VCR!

SLR, big arse
what's verdict, fellow riders?
must keep arse happy.

ullrich out with knee
j-ku wishes fast knee heal
give tour interest

lance out with bum gut
off-season new training tool
quart-sized shiner bock

best place for build kit?
on the bike, man! otherwise
just bag of loose screws

colnago color scheme
stars and stripes? then hype and gripes?
just ride what you like.

ahisma island
now remove tape from downtube?
who will you ride with?

customs duty Q?
their duty: delay wheelset.
three weeks from ireland.

what, brand image tax?
suspect head too long in book
"marketing on brain"

me: bike psychosis
ticking sound! i can't find it!
could be anything

my first suggestion
swap the wheelset if you can
you would be surprised!

my expensive bike
want to ride without stolen
suggest use sidearm

what? more sensible?
if no like lead projectile,
tighten brake, no ride.

ho! DINO new bike!
what? and using computer?
is "opposite day"?

wife: "you! no more bikes!"
so, to starbucks every day
ah! but don't get drink.

creams for the rear end
high mileage makes for sore arse
friction? butter up.

ah, the board does grow
always learn from our mistakes
improve online 'tudes

surprised haven't learned
not sink low, not denigrate
not feed "Cosmic" dude

makes my stomach turn
page down page down and page down, down
past stupid trek thread

just one last (question)
i've noticed something missing
where the h*ll is Dog?
classic nmmorrison

The last post I recall from Dog was regarding how he might balance, cycling, new baby, and life's other demands. Some flamer shot in to suggest that he quit posting here to free up time. So, Dog, if your out there, please know your missed (and it was just a flamer).
Niiiiiiiiiiiiiiice! (nm)Kristin

Ah...the simple nature of haiku is grossly underappreciated.

"who will you ride with?"

Ride with? I prefer to ride alone. My wife on occasion. A friend every now and again. Mostly just me and traffic.

"now remove tape from downtube?"

I'll never take off the tape until the frame gets new paint and is thus rendered "logoless". Even then I'd tape the top tube and chainstays. Habit.

"where the h*ll is Dog?"

Indeed! Where is my favorite long distance law wielding libertarian labrador? Perhaps the recent sour and sharp tongued nature of the board has turned him toward the more casual atmosphere of the dread "Non-cyling board".

Who knows.


It's been a while, but that was worth it! (nm)look271

thanks for the heads up
must check local vid stores
see if they order

otherwise no rent
and i certainly won't buy
since independent

I suspect "film noir"
beret, much makeup, drama
smoking cigarettes

bike as strange symbol
and italian subtitles?
oh, wait...silly me...

grew up in the south
equate "independent" film
with foreign movie

shaving legs, bag balm on butt
independent film
