Wow, It’s almost the end of the month and the “challenge” is almost over. I think the new challenge should be to make better challenges. I fell off the wagon mid week and had little to no desire to hop back on. Given that I could buy my way out, coupled with my co-workers inabilities to drink like fishes, it feels like I’m walking my bike through a giant loop-hole. The next challenge should have weekly check points and DIRE consequences. I’m proposing everyone offers up a pinky finger to the cycling gods, and only upon successful completion of the monthly challenge would one be spared pinky-removal-by-bolt cutters. The May(?) challenge is in the works and involves orienteering, camping, cycle-touring, and psudo-kidnapping. It’s a “walk-the-plank-esque” challenge that will require determination from all parties, except perhaps from Mr. Dan “2oo miles, *rolls eyes* you could do that in like, a day” Langlois, who sees no challenge in lightweight-minitouring. (NOT)
In other shop news, the new Spooky Bikes are done and should be going to paint soon. Look for amazing powder jobs inspired by things that inspire me…
Now I know that I may stand alone in my inspirational choices, but I feel like I can spec a pretty cool bike if I try. The colors will be a first for me, as I normally work within the “black” color spectrum. (gloss, flat, etc…) I will post photos when I get em.
