    The Umarthiad

    I decided to try something new and different this week- and that is to do a little bit of a photo journal as the week unfolds. I'll try and update a couple times a day, if at all possible. Some of it will have some SS action, there will be a bit of biking and some really lame things, like my breakfast. Speaking of which, here worse photos than usual-

    Are you sure that's not your breakfast after your body was through with it?

    My breakfast was a glass of milk and some Eggo chocolate chip waffles. ****'s hella good. Now I'm off to go get high off the fumes while painting my grandma's fence. Have fun in umarthland!

    Update, 9:34am 072511: umarth & ArchMarge just stopped by my workplace on their way to go ride Middle Fork Trail. How fair is it that they get to go riding while I have to work? Anyway, umarth bought some Elixir brakes off me... I gave him hella deal. Why? Because I secretly like him. Not as much as I secretly like ArchMarge, but he's not half the A-hole he pretends to be on these here forums.

    P.S. umarth turns 30 on Wednesday. Shouldn't we stick some candles in a cowpie or sumpthin'?

    If you're going to be a singlespeeder, you're going to have to put some meat in your diet. And i'm not talking about Umarth's either.

    He is kind a d**k sometimes. He didn't invite me to his B-day party and he won't ride with me this Sunday because he says 10am is too early.

    Thanks, sParty, for all the brake related ****. I still owe you five bucks, and you're going on my favorite beer of the month club until you die or I move out of Eugene. You need the ****ing variety.

    How old are you? This if ****ing awesome. My girlfriend, ArchMarge, has her birthday tomorrow. People should really send her an assload of visitor messages and attempt to befriend her.

    Anyway, a couple photos from tonight. The first is Food For Lane County's Dining Room. ArchMarge and I volunteer there every Monday night. We do **** for them on Thursday night too, but there won't be any photos because it is closed this week.

    The other photo is for Troutbum and CHUM.

    Well, I'll be 18. Soon as the clock strikes midnight, I'll be entering every bike-related drawing and sweepstakes I can find. And maybe I'll drive my friends around, just to finally be able to do it legally. Last time I drove people was at 3:30 AM, after the Harry Potter premier. We got to be the first responders to a truck that had rolled down a cliff. We saw a UFO too. That was fun.

    My girlfriend's birthday was like three weeks ago. It's been cool dating a cougar. Now that we'll both be adults, though, it'll kinda ruin the thrill of being a minor with an adult. Oh well.

    I befriended "your girlfriend." Mostly to be an *******, but then I read the part about how everyone should befriend her. I am everyone, though, so I guess that works out.

    So Hydro, are you coming or not? I need to know some numbers here... ArchMarge laughed at the hipster comment, then immediately became offended that you would insult the blue. She thinks it is pretty.

    Some more photos- teasers for some bike projects I hope to complete this week and how I spent my morning.

    This is one of those circumstances where I could have taken a car, but made the decision to do it by bike, which is a bit of life goal for me. Visibility wasn't terrible. Crosswinds were. I had to stop twice because my arms were getting so tired.

    Now I'm trying to get the Elixirs dialed for my ride tomorrow. The front is still feeling weak and I'm gonna have to trim the hose at some point....

    New rotors will need to be bedded in. I have a bleed kit... but those brakes were recently bled (twice). Regardless, you'll need to bleed it/them again if you shorten the hose/s. You provide pizza & beer... oh & bring Marge. You haven't seen my new place yet (but she has).

    Cool with homemade on the pizza? Cause if I do it, there will be flax meal, whole wheat and the like for the crust....

    Anyway, dicked around with them a bit after the post and I think I have the lever travel and feel pretty locked in. I tweaked the alignment and now the front is stopping better. At least stopping well enough that I don't think I die on a switchback tomorrow.

    If you have a smart phone, check out the Instagram app. It would fit in perfect for what you're doing. I'm "dionridesbikes" on Instagram.

    It is nice to live in Oregon, just cause you can get out by yourself so easily and so often. the endless woods are nice, too.

    Sorry I bailed on posting more photos, but at this point, I'm doing most of the posting and I was feeling self congratulatory.

    You can actually upload DSLR photos on to instagram. There's some pretty impressive stuff on there. It's basically twitter, but photos instead.

    My wife is an avid photographer and she loves using Instagram with her DSLR. If you # your subject (like #singlespeed) people will pick up on it and start following you. I do it "live from the trail" so I just use my iPhone. Just ordered a Macro and Wide Angle lens for my iPhone, so that will be fun.



    Here's one my wife took with her Nikon:



    IDK... just another fun way to spend on the interwibs

    I like both of those shots (but the bike better).

    Fine. Here are a few more, and then we can call it even. Sorry about the bleeding on my sunset photos. Not sure how that happened, but I'm guessing my camera needs some TLC.

    So tell your moms I'm taking the week off.

    I've ridden twice in the past three weeks. On the other hand, I've made a nice chunk of change.

    Last ride involved a bit of grinding with the rocks on the trail. I'm more pissed about burping my tire (have to re-do my ghetto tubeless) than I am about the road rash, but the road rash means I can't go camping with my friends this weekend. Don't want to risk infection, two days later and it's still leaking nasty **** all over the place, even with bandages being changed twice a day.

    I have no idea where I'll be able to keep my bikes in the fall. They're not allowed in the dorms, and I'll **** a goat before I leave any of my bikes locked up to stair rails.

    And, well, I feel like being an *******. Per my usual interwebz usage.

    Um, where you are going? Several universities have places you can lock bikes under the building, and if you know your roomie they might be willing for a bike to shuttle up into the room.

    I have a hard time imagining that there isn't a secure location for your bicycles, but I live in an area where we hug and kiss our two wheeled brethren.

    University of Nevada (not Nuh-vah-duh) at Reno. I'm not sure that my dorm hall has any basement storage, and bikes aren't allowed in the dorms. I think. I'm posting on their cycling team's group page to see where I can keep my rides. If worst comes to worst, I have an aunt who works there and lives out in Reno somewhere. She would probably let me keep my bikes at her house, or maybe even in her office. That's pushing it a bit far, though.

    I mostly applied to University of Portland and Willamette, too. I don't think I ever finished the UoP app, and I was accepted to Willamette, but it's still too expensive, even with that scholarship. And the rain turned me off from that area. So I'm moving to the desert. I don't want to see a drop of water falling out of the sky ever again. Unless it's sweet pow-pow falling on the Sierras.

    ^^ I just neg-repped a spammer. I like my job. I don't think I've cussed someone out like that in a really long time. It went something along the lines of "**** off, mother****ing cock-sucking spam-****ing spammer." How many stars do I get?

    Sucks for you. My friend and I both kept our bikes in our dorm rooms. I cabled mine to my bed for extra security. Even if they weren't allowed in the dorms, I'd have kept it in my room. We were a bunch of lawless dicks on the "smarty pants" floor. And we had the RA's on our side.

    Just ask around and see if there can be any special provisions made for a baller with as much swag as you have. I'm sure something can be "arranged."

    I also kept my bike in my dorm. I bought a bunk bed, and removed the lower bed. Had storage under neath for my lazy boy and my bike. Didnt take up any extra room. Nothing like the sound of angry bee's at 7:30am while pushing your bike down the hallway. I think I was the only one on that floor that had class at 8am.

    Turns out bikes are allowed in the dorms. Well, there's nothing explicitly against it in the handbook. Good enough for me. There's a loft bed with a desk underneath and a bunk bed (triple occupancy), so I just mentally called dibs on the loft bed. Two other desks in another corner for the other two doodz. Common courtesy to call the roommates with a warning, or should I just show up on move-in day and surprise them with three bikes?

    I would at least email them kinda giving them a heads up. And just keep your bikes and **** on your side. Should be fine.

    Taking actions shots is a pain in the ass if you want to ever finish a ride... and since I'm taking the photos, there is never any SS content. Add in that I don't have a ton of practice with actions shots, and they just don't happen. I'll give it a shot this weekend though.

    Yeah...but...you have a great GF that rides with you! C'Mon bro, no excuse or I'll have to ask Chum-p to mod you in some awefull, distasefull way!?

    But timer is a good way to start though, or ride no hands and reverse the camera so that it is facing you while you ride...it's easy matey, you only have 1 gear, how hard could it get??? he he he.

    Pos rep to come tomorrow, I'm at my max...gave too much Rep-Luv, as Pink would say.
