New Colors and New Bikes Photos

Not a whole lot of news to share since the last time I posted. The biggest news is a couple weekends ago Katie and I painted some of the rooms in the house. This is the first time I have really done any painting like this. I am pretty confident I can say "I don't like painting".
We really like the colors we picked and the rooms look as good as they can, considering the poor job the previous owners did painting.

Yesterday I finally got out on my road bike for the first time this year. We got about an 80 mile ride in, including some pretty serious pace lines, sprints, and hill climbs. I felt really good throughout the whole ride, even after a full week of riding including a hard ride on Friday.

Salsa Primero-with new Red Group and Dura Ace Carbon Clinchers

Since I switched the RED onto the Primero, I had a Chorus group sitting around collecting dust. I decided to convert the Casseroll fixed fear into a gear bike. This bike is awesome!

Finally, since I lost my fixie I wanted to convert my Cross Check back to a fixed gear. The Cross Check is a very versatile bike that allows one to set it up in a a number of different configurations. Here is the 4th mutation of my Cross Check.
