Today Heidi and I hit up our local LBS (that’s Local Bike Shop for those of you not in the loop) looking at bikes for her. She’s been wanting a new bike for a solid six months now and it’s finally time to pull the trigger.  Well we found exactly what she wanted. It’s a very sweet looking Felt F95 with the oh-so-stylish Slipstream Argyle paintjob. Only they didn’t have her size. Nobody seems to have her size and she is very much bummed out.

Coincidentally some heavy hitters showed up while we were discussing this perdicament. Blackberry’s were drawn and a massive search has ensued.

Give me 30 seconds in that trailer.

We’ll see…they’ve got our number and we’re chompin’ at the bit waiting for word of a 54cm aluminum and carbon work of art.

I was out for a nice ride today after a couple of days of rest. Legs were spinning good. I was climbing hills in bigger gears than usual…always a good feeling. Sat on my nuts once, though…not a good a feeling. Greenhaven is a badass local band. I’d describe their music as ‘dirty rock.’ If you’re local to the PHX area you should check ’em out. My man Strangwayes is the singer. He’s got to be one of the most interesting dudes I have ever met. Guy can tell you stories for hours, just keep feeding him beers.

After the ride, Heidi and I went to the Desert Botanical Gardens to check out the current glass art display by Chiluly.  Fascinating stuff.
