turns out my trainer bike is also my 'crosser. i noticed the mess last night and thought sharing with the board was in order. caption winner gets to clean the bike and shop with a toothbrush and bucket of soapy water.

...it would look just like my Trek.
In a related development, you should know that when I saw that whole setting--the floor, the stuff against the wall, the cable leading across to the resistance adjuster--I got this huge sense of depressing deja vu and wanted to go out and burn down my garage just because it's four months until spring. I used to be able to ride the trainer in the house, until I got uppity and bought a new carpet.

If you mean the chainstay protector, you can buy it from Bianchi USA. I've just put one on my new frame, and I'm sure to get a few comments at the first race next spring. Check out their website store.

My hat's off to you...

You epitomize the athlete and what the sport is all about...

You give it all and then some each time you mount... ;-)

.... i mean the mixte frame w/ the (early?) flags on the wall surrounded by boxes - Duchamp would be proud. its says everything that America has become.

haiku baby, you shoulda cleaned the surly and moved it so that we can better appreciate the artwork in the background you are trying to show and for us to critique and caption.

What color bar tape matches pea soup and mud?tarwheel
Dec 19, 2002 1:20 PM
Of course, why would you care about matching bar tape when you tires don't even match? ;)

front wheel is black OP/chorus w/mich axial kevlar from my merckx, rear wheel is velocity el cheapo trainer wheel with generic hub and nearly-bare vredestein tire.

the cross-check wears its own set of black OP/ultegra 9 with 'cross knobbies. you can see the rear in the background of the first pic. other one is hanging just out of the shot.

oh, ahd "pea soup" is fine, but i prefer "guacamole/baby poop green".
Surly, you're not going to leave the bike that dirty?Tig
