what a beautiful day it was, and ofcourse i had to go for a long ride to enjoy it. i headed up to Branched Oak lake for a few laps. on the way out on north 14th i was stuck behind a tractor for a bit, then i endured the stench of a bait shop to pick up a brew (ok, it was really gatorade), and finally... i saw quite a specimen of a horse on the far side of the lake before heading back. he was a beaut. as he stared me down he probably was wondering why i rode a horse that was much smaller than he was, and with two round hoops intead of legs and hooves.

met this dude named brook down at the shop today. he had this really cool schwinn cruiser he built up. he said the rust was just the right color he wanted so i don't think he plans on painting it. i'm guessing that everything probably cost him less than $30. i dig the upholstery on the saddle, and the spiked studs are a nice touch.

while coming from downtown i ran into my good friend Eva (de España) as she commuted home. we chatted for awhile, enjoying the nice weather and trying to decide on a name for her steed. "violeta or morada?" she pondered. she decided on 'morada' (for the color purple).

i met this guy named Ivan Guthmiller from South Dakota. he likes building old style high-wheeler (or 'penny-farthing') bikes. he also showed me pictures of a few pre-1900 style cars he built, pretty cool work. email him if you'd like to see the stuff he's built (firstname.lastname@example.org).
the mercy rule man himself, johnny T, was there too. here he's discovered what must be an early merlin newsboy non-ti prototype frame. it felt heavy like a schwinn, but no... that merlin decal means it must be that early 'raw' titanium.. uh huh. if you believe that john and i have a car to sell you.
