So in the past two weeks, I've been an expensive annihilator of all things, bike related or not.

Broken tooth - $280 (including gas to drive to have it fixed)
Destroyed front Dura Ace Shifter - $240 (Forget it, not for 9 speed. SRAM anyone?)
Sticking piston on my Formula K24 front disc brake on my trail bike ($46 for parts, plus about 4 hours of sheer agony of trying to rebuild it. Or pay a shop to do it for about $150)

Good. Now that that's out of the way...

Riding has been good lately. My endurance at this point in the season is very good, which I'm extremely happy about. I feel like I can hack pretty much anything out on my radar at this point in the season, so that's good.

Now if I could only get rid of the awful tan lines...

Next weekend I'm off to Vermont for a couple days to do some riding. Nothing beats a vacation I don't think. I'm certainly looking forward to it.
