And wait 7 years, apparently.

I bet certain people has no idea they were on the west coast.

I wonder if my wife will let me……

Not likely - not enough tire clearance. I would be it's a Boone, which they just updated and has been their dedicated CX model for a several years.

Jackie caught a mouse. She likes to play with mice instead of kill them. Is that normal feline behavior??

It's normal if they weren't taught to eat their catch by their mother.

Negative, Funds come Friday.

Bike shop just called, there was debate about whether or not to wrap the bars, since I plan on switching them. Leaving them unwrapped for now,
Test riding tomorrow.

For many it is. Reds was once bringing us a mouse he caught. It got out of his mouth and ended up getting away. He just looked at it while it made its escape under a closet door. Other times we found dead ones. One night we were out late at a party. When we got home I found he had left a huge dead one right next to my slippers I would change into.

It looks like the latest Boone.

The new Checkpoint has some really nice improvements.

Wrap and ride!

Rewrap when the other bars come. No way I could let it sit for three months.

Yea when I see it tomorrow Iíll have them wrap it. When I stepped in on Saturday the guy I have been working with during this process was off. The other staff seemed pretty knowledgeable about my plans, and when they looked up the bars it showed a little bit of a wait.
Maybe my guy has knows of some somewhere else?


There is also a small chance I wonít be able to ďpick it upĒ til the end of the month. By pick it up, I mean my wife go and pay for it and it sit at the shop til December. Thatís prolly the main reason for delaying the wrapping. If scenario number 2 happens then the new bars might arrive before I physically get to bring it home.

If option 2 happens the scream Friday morning will be heard around the world.

Yes. Especially if her mom didn't teach her how to kill mice.
