Kevin's Kastoff

becomes another addition to my stable...

Kevin was selling a mountain bike at HCHQ for a reasonable amount. Since I don't have one and have wanted to start trail riding, I thought that this could be a nice way to enter into the sport. I was also a good boy and donated a bunch of bikes and frames to Mr. Michael in an attempt to clear up the veloclutter that had become unmanageable. The combination of clearing of the clutter, the low price and my incessant whining convinced the ever-loving, patient and beautiful Mrs. Yam to allow me to purchase the bike.

Of course now I need a new helmet, shoes, cleats, pedals, wardrobe, SUV, plane tickets to Moab, etc...

Maybe I'll just pop down to SD and visit Snakebite's project when that comes to fruition instead.

Yeah, but its cheaper than sports betting, cars, motorcycles, hookers, blow and good beer.

Oops, scratch that last one. We should always maintain our standards.

We'd love to have you visit AND have the project done.

Mountain bike?? Sweet!! Where shall we go first?? Brewing up a Friday night ride with Mr Morris. Was going to be the default road ride but let's do some MTBing?? Haven't been out on the mtb for a year or two ( can't find anyone to go with since Vu left.)
