Arise, Utilitarian Bike!
Today I rode with the regular east side crew and Rick, which meant having to clean 45 miles worth of road crap off of my bike after I got back.
I then turned my attention to the urban assault bike (UAB), which needed a little TLC. The result is shown above. This steed was my first race worthy mountain bike, which I purchased over 10 years ago. I still use it, but it has been "resting" in the War Room for a while.
I also want to thank Don for the hospitality and opportunity to check out the video game Rock Band on Friday Night. It's about as addictive as Guitar Hero, with more instruments. An amusing article about this game on slate.com, written by the guitarist from the band Sleater-Kinney, can be found here.
