doing it wrong

Just when I get back from an awesome ride, I find yet more evidence I've been doing it wrong. You're gonna want to watch this one.

luck of the Irish

Apparently, I'm not Irish.

Looks like my laissez-faire attitude towards mountain bike maintenance has finally caught up to me.
small chainring carnage- the horror, the horror...

That right there is the source of that mysterious creaking that came on over the last two rides.

Must have been slowly losing bolts, finally suffering penultimate failure when the last key bolt let go cranking up out of an arroyo.  Locked me up solid, no pedaling possible at all without damaging my swing arm.

If only I had my leatherman with me, I might have bent it back into shape.  Or a multi-tool to remove it to free spool on the ride back to the truck.

Oh wait, those were prolly sold at the flea market last Sunday. 

Stoopid car burglar.

true story

Quick spin after work to celebrate daylight savings. No pack pump tube patch kit gloves? No problem says I.

Pinch flat said otherwise.

Wouldn't you know it?!

Posted while awaiting Mrs Wulff to arrive in the rescue Subaru.

Yep my faith in humanity was restored precisely @ 8.33am this beautiful day. Received a call from kindly old gentleman, having found my work bag in a local parking lot.

Only thing missing? Tape measure and $4 in change. My 10 year old collection of dried up pens? Still there. My plan set? Yep still there. My calculator? Yep. Flash drive? Yep. Irreplaceable project notes? You betcha.

Awesome moment right there.

Recent tragic events have thrust me into the market to retool for mountain biking- vis-a-vis new hydration pack, pump, gloves, multi-tool.  I thought it'd be fun to see where you guys stand on these important, nay critical!, choices for the definitive kit required to shred local singletrack.  

You gotta minute?  If so, steer me right in the sidebar polls page right.  Or throw a guy a bone the comments below~

muchas gracias- mike

stoopid car burglar

Could use another margarita right about now.  

black shards of bitterness
have you seen me?
Big Red was broken into last nite = smashed window & work briefcase stolen, incl an entire set of plans for my current project.

Thinking I should place an ad on Craigslist, let the perps know I expect those redlines to be picked up, on my desk by Monday, grrrrr....
Worse yet, they got my camelbak! Including gloves x2, spare tube, pump, crank bro's tool, tire irons, chain links, patch kit, honey stingers, zips, whatnot.  

Man, but I'm gonna miss those stingers, sniff.

Silver lining: maybe they'll find that peanut butter banana sammich left over from last weekend...

Oh look, it's least I got that goin for me, eh? 

Stoopid car burglar.
