Quick Update

I've not been riding enough. But...

I did interview for a job today. A second interview that I think went well. I have high hopes...but I have been let down before.

A few things hinge on getting this job. I have told Fish and Dave (formerly DTP) that I would do the 2011 Ironman Arizona should I get this job. I don't really have the time to do it this year because of an incoming baby this July. I suspect it will be a one shot deal. I don't enjoy triathlons, but I do enjoy the feeling of accomplishment I get by finishing them quite a bit.

I also have commissioned Neil at Cernitz bikes to build me a singlespeed mtb frame. This is also pending getting this job. I have this bike already built in my mind...it is going to be freaking gorgeous. But, I'm not letting that cat out of the bag. Currently Neil is working on the replacement for my Original ButterCup frame which was whacked pretty good last December when I was rearended driving to a race. That bike is going to be pretty freaking cool too, but I think this one, the singlespeed mtb, will be a little more freeform since I am not nearly as worried about frame weight. I just want it to be, well...Bitchin' to put it crudely.

Saturday is the First Annual Huntsman Tour de Muerte. It is just a local ride for friends, but around 35 to 40 miles we will climb over 5600 feet. That, my friends, is going to hurt. And it is going to hurt badly.

Do you still have your Curtlo SS?

A geared 29er Curtlo arrived here recently, but nothing other than a seat and seatpost have been installed. I hope to have some build time soon. I will say your Curtlo was a big inspiration for me to get one, my original was for a SS, but then I changed it to a geared frame (and wished I just did sliders with gear hangers, but did not. . . .)
