Giant's new top of the line road and mountain bike frames for 2009 arrived at the shop today - just one of each. We are going to build them up using thousands of dollars worth of ridiculous-grade parts. Giant is going to feature our builds Interbike again this year. Apparently there are only a handful of these frames in existence and we're the only shop in the US to have them right now. Giant loves us and all of our Gucci parts.
Going to do Alpine damn again. Setting up a backup alarm this time. Sam trued my wheels after work today, a pair of Neuvation's I bought from Alex for $50 last month. Stoked about that.
On another note:
So it seems this blog is no longer about me being a bike messenger. Some days I don't think about the job and some days I miss it terribly. I've never had a job give me so much euphoria on a damn near daily basis. How could I not miss that?
I quit my job at Speedway without really having another one lined up. I was able to bring three companies over to Jetset after two afternoons of hustling, but somehow I lost interest in doing that. Even after two years, I still feel a bit like a tourist in the bike messenger game. I knew it was never something I could devote my life to. If I had five lives, I'd certainly give it one.
I think right now it's 70/30 against me going back to work as a messenger. As for this blog, I never wanted to just write about whatever popped into my head - I wanted to keep it on one topic that I thought might interest some people.
So I'm not sure what I'll do with it now that I'm not wrestling cars for a living. I'm not sure how many people even read this shit. Maybe "anonymous" is all the same dude. My thinking right now is to keep it marginally about bikes. Or maybe just wrap it up. I'm not sure.
