Aero Bottle technology has gone too far....

I just stumbled across these photos of a new aero bottle that debuted at Kona.

This is insane. I don't know what else to say....

New Position

Today I accepted a new Mechanical Engineering position.  It's working with School District 62 (Sooke area) as an Energy Manager.  It's a newly created position with funding from BC Hydro to help reduce the school districts carbon footprint.  More on this later...

Wanted: STI shifter -- 105 quality, 9 speed, rear derailleur shifter only

I think mine has finally had enough and called it quits. So I need to get a new or used one. I can sometimes shift by pulling the external cable by hand and clicking the downshift lever (it's a little slower than actual shifting), then repeat for the next gear. One day soon I'll get it into the shop but for now I still have 2 other bikes to ride.

Cooler weather is here

After sitting on my butt for the last couple of days I decided to head out for a run this morning.  Little did I know that mother nature would make me search the house for my winter running gear.  I found my running tights, gloves and toque.  And I was glad to have those since it was barely 2 degrees when I left the door.  I ran 50 minutes at an easy pace and enjoyed every second.
