First train of the season!

Finally got over to Beverly Cycles the other day to get a good workout on the indoor trainer. Went for about an hour, and was nearly dead halfway through...just started counting down the minutes till we're done...

Made it through though, and my legs feel better for it. The knee is a bit stiff, and muscles are still tight after stretching etc, but thats just part of getting back into shape. I'm looking to build an addition onto my rollers to make them free motion, so I might run around and pick up parts for that today...then I can ride indoors here or out on the porch without having to drag my bike up to Beverly.

Update on the bike, all the parts in I want...PRO Shimano straight fork, CF Nashbar seatpost, new CF-looking cages and Titan Forte front and rear wheels. I need to get a new headset in order to install the fork, but I may just have the shop do that. Everything else is installed!

Here's the bike sitting in the kitchen:

Yes I need to swap my stem, shush.

Bike is a bit lighter than before, and feels better to ride, though I haven't ridden on the road with the new wheels yet...

Here's a video of the roller assembly I want to build:

PS, forgot to mention that I'm doing the Philly Challenge for LIVESTRONG in August, and I've created a website for it. Please take a look and if you're so inclined, I would appreciate a donation towards my goal.
