I got a $5 gift card with all my orders and a free pair of flame socks. Not sure if he still does this, I bought about 6 jerseys last year.

Also Old Fart, drunk bastard, bone collector, cranky old bastard, and fat bastard jerseys. One or two more off the top my head.

He has killer specials, hit and miss with sizes.

I got the fat bastard in yellow for $19 after using the $5 gift card.

Outstanding CS, fast delivery. In California, from MO on my doorstep in 3 shipping days. He has emailed me after I ordered a size that he thought might not fit me to advise me on my order. Great CS.

Bibs for $15 at times on sales, good for midweek shorter rides in my case.

Up to 5XL

I bought a local shop jersey to support them at the same exact time I ordered these jerseys. Love2pedal received withing 3 shipping days. $35-$24 on the prices. The bike shop was $80 and it took me 4 months to get the jersey.

NO I DO NOT WORK FOR THE GUY HA HA! Just like stuff that fits, inexpensive and good quality (Primal brand, nice and long torso, Suarez a bit smaller but just a tad under the quality imo but inexpensive, prefer the Primal).

Nice 20 miler. I cut it short because every rider I passed called me a fat bastard. I don't know why! I'm only 260

Decided to ride before breakfast, the weather was supposed to be perfect, but, there was a headwind and showers on the way out that I was not expecting, the humidity was up too. Just to spice things up I decided to roll up some bloody hills, no pain no gain right? However pre-ride weight 91.4kg post ride weight 89.3kg. I know its mostly water that was lost, but I'll do the same ride tomorrow aiming to do it faster.

another beautiful January day . I spent most of the day at the shooting range , but got home in time for a quick 5.6 around the neighborhood. Avg. 9.7mph on my Rockhopper. That’s fast for me on a MTB .
The sun was dropping fast , so we’re the temps .

i prefer to ride between 1:30-2:30 this time of year .

The last couple of days it’s been after 4pm before I could get out there . By then , there’s very little sunshine left on the roads . Temps are starting to drop and it’s been very windy , 16mph with higher gusts today . Makes it hard to dress right for the ride .

Cloudy all day , but no rain . 61 outside at 7:30 pm
Rode the Schwinn CrissCross today . Then started working on it . New saddle, new pedals, new shifters with brake levers to go with the V-brake conversion I did on it .
The brakes are awesome now , but I couldn’t get the shifters set right before I got to the point where it was time to stop .

Hope the rain holds off enough tomorrow to get it shifting right and get in a ride .

Jan Goal: 26 Trainer Hours

Jan 1st - 1 hr Trainer
Jan 2nd - 1 hr Trainer
Jan 3rd - 1.5 hrs Trainer
Jan 5th - 1.5 hrs Trainer
Jan 6th - 1 hr Trainer
Jan 8th - 1 hr Trainer
Jan 9th - 1.25 hr Trainer
Jan 10th - 1.5 hr Trainer

My cycling ďseasonĒ starts November (and thatís also when I focus on weight goals too) and I was down 9lbs from the first of November until mid December. But I gained back 6lbs over the holiday with a serious case of the blues.

Finally headed in the other direction after a couple weeks of focus, back down to where I was at the start of December. Frustrating to feel like youíre trying hard and to lose so slowly and a bad 10 days sets you back a month!

Damn!

Woke this morning to damp roads and once . I got out early , for me , and once I got riding , I kept feeling rain drops off and on .
Showers and Thunderstorms predicted the rest of the day , so I knew this was my only chance to ride today .
I kept riding , but kept in the neighborhood, close by so I could get home before I got soaked .
The temperature was nice , upper 60ís .
Around four miles in , the rain picked up , but it slacked back off enough for me to get 5.5 miles in .
I rode the CrissCross and did the final adjustment on the rear derailleur and got it shifting smoother . The chain is fairly new , so the next thing to replace will be the cassette if it doesnít finish smoothing out with riding .

89 miles for the month.

46 today at 17.3 average speed with my Fat Bastard friend. We both have the jersey! I think I am the only guy I know now who isn't riding carbon and/or aero wheels.

Didn't expect to get outside at all in January but we had an unusually warm weekend so I got in 25 miles. First time on the bike since my injury.
