Wind storm of 2010

Needless to say yesterday was incredible. I decided to ride to confront the winds that were howling out of the S.W. We had sustained winds of over 35 with gusts of around 60mph. That categorized yesterday as a Cat 3 hurricane day. So I was out on the crossbike riding to work and turning the pedals with all my might to sustain a 3-6 mph speed. I had a couple of scary moments and also an unwanted trip to the ditch. On the way home I rode the PUgsley with the 26x2.5 hookworm and I was doing 30mph without any effort. I am happy to have ridden.

I think I almost died the other day in the wind...fucking midwest...its our only "geographical" feature. Thinking of stretching the dollars and getting a vanilla milkshake crosshairs and swapping the casseroll parts...going to 9 speed, 11/34 cassette, 34/46 double up front. I think the vanilla milkshake with the brown king parts will give me an erection for years...thoughts? Also, I might see you at pumpkin fest on sunday if you guys are going.

Dear Jay: Your decision to flip your wad for a Crosshairs Vanilla Shake is a very manly thing to do. Give us a call because we will be attending the Cyclo-cross Competition races at the Park on Brown rd in St.Carlos.
Will give you a ring tomorrow. Go ahead with the Gunnar Plan, There will be absolutely no regrets.
Drink hard and rest,
