Wish I could be there to see you talk and hang out with you at the tables. I'll be with you in spirit. About the new saddle bag. Nice. Mine is smaller, but it can only handle a tube, CO2 catridges and inflater and a few microscopic things like chain pins. I'm sure Jonas will appreciate it when you really need something and you have it, like a head of lettuce and couple loaves of bread... ok, I'll be good. I do like the bag, and the seat rocks. Have fun in New York!

Oh yeah, since it is the rainy season here, I bought fenders for Nemo. I'm sure she is going to make a fuss, not looking cool and all like coe coe and chocolate, but I can't do the Paris Roubaix thing and I hate riding with a wet ass and road grit on everything. I'm not going to let the rain keep me from getting out on the road, but I do like being a little comfortable.

I love fenders. just be sure to be careful if you try and jump on the bike cyclocross style while sporting a fender. I "hear" the groin muscle does not appreciate when you smack your leg into the fender.

I am going to be in Wilmington on Saturday, and I was thinking about heading up to visit some friends! It would be cool to see you there.
