Tülbag, including the pieces I thought irreplaceable. The best part is it all still fits in the older, smaller version of the Tülbag (right), so I won't have to move into the larger, newer version (left).
The Olde Stuffe
Slime-Pro-covered-tube insta-patches. At least the key elements are there.
I also added a few wraps of duct tape to my home-made tire boot.
Confused on how to use a Tülbag? You shouldn't be, but if you are...
I also replaced the last two water bottle boss rivnuts that were dissolved in a solvent tank.
Misfit diSSent Brontoawesomeous Meatplow V.5 is fully complete once more. Perhaps soon enough, this bike will be known as the bike that changed the world... or at least Canada. Yes, Peter is thinking about something new, something modern... perhaps even something RED.
Other big wins?
I have lined up all my travel for the three stage races this year. My Double D partner Jana has lined up this sweet rig for the Trans-Sylvania Epic.
The Pisgah Tavern/The Hub has allowed us the use of said vehicle for our journey to Central PA, I will be rifling through all the compartments looking for the hidden kegerator.
The BC Bike Race logistics were more of a pain than I anticipated. The TSE and Breck Epic have made me a lazy man. I looked at hundreds of flight options to find the ONE that worked, and by "worked" I mean that it didn't burn up an extra day of my paid time off. At one point, spurred by low frustration levels, I almost tossed the keyboard and decided to just do the Tour de Burg instead. Then I remembered that the BC Bike Race is pretty awesome and worth the effort... not to mention that the TdB is awfully hard and whatever I can do to avoid it is best done.
I will be getting off a plane the Monday morning after the race and heading to work 2.5 hours later... whatever.
Breck Epic? Easiest in and out right off the plane race I've ever done, from a logistical sense. Sure, USAir dinged me for 55,000 frequent flier miles, but such is the nature of air travel nowadays. Condo is secured and much closer to the action than last year. Two out of four roomies committed. Still looking for 2-3 more.
Almost time to relax and perhaps start preparing my body in a fitness sense.
Another three legged foster dog will be leaving our house today and going into the general population at the Humane Society of Charlotte.
I will miss this one.
