Cross Season + Cross Bike = ?

Cross season + Tuffy's cross bike = Tuffy's not racing cross. Won't do it. Don't bother to ask. It's not going to happen.

I'm just putting it back together so I don't have to abuse the "A" bike in bad weather, i.e. September through April.

However, a big thanks goes out to (dis)pencer for helping me retool my cross bike ('03 Trek XO1) over the weekend. I would offer a big thanks to Superrookie and the Little Guy, but they didn't really do anything other than to occupy space. Wait. Superrookie donated some old chainring bolts. Thanks, Superrookie!

Speaking of space, the space was the infamous/fabled/mysterious (dis)pencer lair. I finally got to see it with my own eyes...and it exceeded all expectations. I was thinking it was going to be this small, dark little studio space in a warehouse district building.

Boy, was I wrong.

The (dis)pencer lair has a fully-equipped bicycle repair room with heated floors and three walls worth of mirrors. Walking back towards the front door, you proceed through the "entertainment room", replete with big screen tv, all sorts of video games and video gaming systems, leather coach and love seat, ottomans, zebra striped area rugs, and one helluva sound system. Crazy.

Then, there's the master suite (with another huge mirror -- guess where), heated floors in the bathroom (w/ jacuzzi), and a killer view of downtown. Full mahogany in the master suite.

The kitchen is full-on stainless -- kind of like Moby's kitchen had when they showed his "MTV Cribs" episode a few years back. Even a stainless eating table!

Oh...and here's the killer part: everything in the place is recycled/recyclable. (dis)pencer's all about the environment.

So, naturally, Superrookie wants to claim this as his new team's pad. But I can't imagine (dis)pencer's going to let that happen.

We'll see...

Ah well, less competition for Super Rookie and me! You should come out and watch some time though - they're very spectator friendly.
