It appears my efforts to save the crop may have been in vain. I will see this weekend if I need to replant. I should have enough time.

I hate it when that happens. We lost a lot of plants that way when we lived in Colorado. I'm holding off until next weekend to put the first tomatoes in.

Give all the excuses you want +Ben Folsom. If you follow the rules, you will never be as cool as Fignon and Fondriest.

Edit: That goes for you too, +Chris Archibald!

Episcopal Church installed the homeless Jesus statue on its property in the middle of an upscale neighborhood filled with well-kept townhomes. Jesus is huddled under a blanket with his face and hands obscured; only the crucifixion wounds on his uncovered feet give him away.

"One woman from the neighborhood actually called police the first time she drove by," says David Boraks, editor of DavidsonNews.net. "She thought it was an actual homeless person."

That's right. Somebody called the cops on Jesus.

I do not know what is more depressing. The fact that art like this is frowned upon and some other stuff (fill in the blank) is not. Or the clear disrespect for the homeless.

Trip to visit local frame building legend David Cheakas at Southwest Frameworks. Ostensibly to get an estimate on frame repair, but also so LG and I could see where the magic happens. LG was in heaven learning about the big dangerous tools. The plasma cutter was of particular interest.

And yes,+Ben Folsom that is a no-shit Eddy Merckx 7-Eleven frame. It's there not for repair, but to be a template because the owner just bought a Merckx crabon bike and is having it painted to match.

Miyata CX rebuild part 1. 

With the Happy Wanderer out of commission until summer, I need a commuting bike. The as yet unnamed 1991 Miyata Triple Cross is being readied as quickly as possible.

Tonight's effort is to strip everything off. The only original parts I plan to use are the brakes and headset.

See photo captions for more details.

+Todd Morris whether or not it is a bike shed depends on whether you are asking me or my wife.

You need to pay attention when Mr. Burton is talking, y'all.

How to torture a 10 year old:

Good luck, and enjoy the show. Cloudy here, so I'll just sleep.

In honor of Paris-Specialized, let's play Who? What? Where? When? And Why?

Edit: you need to name BOTH riders.

These are iphone pics of prints, so I apologize for the quality. The prints belong to David Cheakas of Southwest Frameworks.

Reveal in a few hours.

Dayum. I really thought this would generate more interest.

These are photos of Eddy Merckx and Lance Armstrong competing as a team in a real sanctioned race. Tour de Gruene is TXBRA (and thus USAC and UCI) certified.

It is true that they weren't really going hard: Lance had just finished cancer treatment and has no hair ( he wouldn't be declared cancer free for another 9 months) and Eddy was reportedly suffering mightily at the hands of the Texas heat, Hill Country topography, and his pack a day habit.

I know Lance has fallen mightily (and I shed no tears over that) but I think these are fantastic photos you likely won't see anywhere else. A truly rare slice of cycling history.

Introduction
I'm an economist by education and a techie by vocation.

I enjoy cycling, photography, soccer, and good libations.  

Just about all content I post, including photos, are shared under non-commercial creative commons.  Some things are all rights reserved.  Please check before using.

What others are saying about Adam:

+Adam Pressler : protohipster. He liked things before before they were cool. 

The troll train catches +Adam Pressler; he backpedals and pretends he meant to ride slowly the whole time as he yells "It's not a race!" though his sweat soaked jersey belies his true intentions.

Oh, Adam... You're a  never-ending fountain, constantly spewing "win"

Adam, your hair appears to be injection molded and your mother dresses you funny.

You sure +Adam Pressler ? I might cut your chicken wings clean off. 

You need to either stop drinking or stop talking.
