Free Burrito

Anyone who rides their bike to the Chipotle at 8th and Congress, between
11-5 on Friday July 25th, will be given a free burrito, bowl, salad or
order of tacos. Notice they also have unbleached napkins, minimal
waste-generating meals, free-range chicken, green building practices and
I think recycling.

A Glimpse of Kona 2009 Line

Soulbiker posted some images of Kona's 2009 line up. I guess this is in La Molina, Spain. My German isn't so good, in fact it's non existent.
Below is the One20 Supreme (bottom) and the Shonky (top)

Tour De France and Stuff

So the Tour is in full gear now. The Aussie from Silence Lotto, Cadel Evans, is in yellow. Manuel Beltran of Liquigas has already been busted for EPO. Yet another former team mate of Lance brought down. The American, Christian Vandevelde, is 38 seconds off the lead
Still fun to watch.
Google has a cool street view of the tour.
As for me, I've been watching at the Crown & Anchor.

These Go to Eleven

There is only one possible answer for those who ask why the 11-speed was born: why not? Cyclists, whether professional or amateur, are never happy. They always demand the most both from themselves and from the products they use. That's why the 11-speed was born.

Campagnolo created the 11-speed to give life to a new vision: realize an innovative, excellent and reliable product dedicated to those who never stop putting themselves to the test, conceived for those who never tire of exceeding their own limits. To do so, it introduced 3 innovations which make the Chorus, Record and Super Record groupsets unique in the market: the 11-speed sprocket set, the third Ergopower generation (Ergopower Ultra-Shift) and CULT (Ceramic Ultimate Level Technology). But that's not all.

11 means enhanced performance: every single groupset component has been redesigned to render it perfect in engineering terms, and guarantee users faster and more precise rear shifting, immediate front shifting, more fluid tooth engagement with the chain and total sprocket synchrony.

Bendependence Day

While Vytis and I were enjoying the fireworks and violence in Chicago, Ben Domingue was rocking Ozone's Jersey in Breckenridge for the Firecracker 50.
As you can see, the Soldier Crab was in full effect throughout this great nation for the Fourth.
