well isn't that ...

Specialized ... is taking over the bikin' duties for the Boonen/Bettini Boys in Blue. yowza - talk about making a strong push into the international market. Move over Trek ... there's a new sheriff in town.

I'm not a big-brand kind of guy, but I'll admit it ... Specialized does a lot of work with local/regional club teams and domestic pro outfits. So, I'll tip my hat to that group of yahoos. I mean ~ i don't ride any of their crap, but good on 'em for working hard to dominate the market.

- - -

Welly-well-well ... looks like somebody up at headquarters took note of some of my rantings from the past.

skip the monsieur lavage bit ... it's more about the reformat of the NRC. Yup, the revisited USA ProTour is going to look an awful lot like what I pooped out those months ago.

you can all thank me with beer at the next cross race.

now, if we could only get them to have races for women. . .

saw a "keep Santa Cruz weird" sticker on the back of a Mercedes SUV in town yesterday. it cut me off in the rainy after-work cross ride up to the University trails.

i was off to poach some middlin'muddy dirt and he was off to ... what? buy an iPod?


screw the both of us.


... Don Henley ditty rolled through my head. (name it?)

- - -

ah well, work is gnawin' at me so - suppose i better do what they pay me to. stupid work.

all i wanna do is head back out to those trails and find that mini-sculp buddha box somebody perched off the side of that cute little climb. i donated the faceplate of my shitmano shifter to it last night ... an offering to the sweet smell of herb eminating out of the forest.

good times.

ballsiest sticker i've seen on a car in santa cruz

"Impeach Santa Cruz"

suprised the driver wasnt belted by tabla's from a local drumming circle

did anyone watch "capitol crimes"....and these fuckers preach morals?..if I believed in hell (o' ya, I do, in a karma sort of way) I would be pretty confident those 3 college buddies...plus Deeelay..will be gettin a little fire and brimstone in the afterlife.

Hey Hernando - Does that Henley song contain the lyrics: "k--- all the lawyers, k--- them tonight?"

X Bunny said...

black flag sticker on a jetta

Brent Chapman said...

Im gonna say .. Life in the fast lane.. Although thats not really a Don H song..

if its not that.. its got to be: You're Not Drinking Enough

And if its a gay song, its: Boys of summer.


I guess I just missed you up at UCSC last night..

My favorite sticker: driver on board does not carry cash, but he does carry a 45.

marscat said...

another sticker I like:

Keep Honking, I'm Re-loading.

velogirl said...

Here's my sticker idea. It wouldn't made millions, I'm sure. Inspired by the "baby on board" mania a decade ago.


husband in trunk


ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!!!!

mb said...

how about the sticker: Keep Tahoe Blue on the bumper of a Chevy Tahoe

Flandria said...

Specialized???? Quick Step is fucked in classics...dumb move

Flandria said...

sorry, I meant to use "frikin"

Flandria said...

don't mean to sound nasty...i truly support local bikes - I guess I will have to see the results before I make a conclusion...

Velo Bella said...

Cipo never had a problem on his Zebra Specialized

Olaf Vanderhoot said...

flanderina!!!

naughty, naughty...

shawndoggy said...

ha ha, funny... lots of guesses and marscat clearly got the lyric reference right but methinks the song title is "boys of summer". What do I win?

Personal fave, all the "Keep Tahoe Blue" stickers on the back of Excursions/Tahoes/Escalades around here. It's more like an order... you DO it (since I'm not gonna).

Flandria said...

forgive me for my detoxing attitude...but in any case - we will see how S last in the cobbles...oh yeah - my wedding ring tattoo looks like their logo - so there...

Olaf Vanderhoot said...

ya'll are crackin' me up.

ok, i'm off to puke myself purple in the lunch workout.

velogirl said...

Flandria, you have a wedding ring tattoo? Now that's committment. Wow!

Johnny Sprocket said...

The Last Resort is a great song. "They called it paradise, I don't know why, you call it paradise, kiss it all goodbye." There's a lot of people out there trying to buy class.

... not too interested in the uci and pro tour talk since all I mind about is my own little geezer local race scene we call NorCalNevada

purple on orange would look groovy.

another couple of memorable bumper sticker I spotted in San Francisco ( although nothing to do with Specialized or Don Henley):
"Quit treating our Earth like dirt" and "my dog ate the weapons of mass destruction"
