hmmm... that doesn't look so bad, i have plenty of time.
uh... that wall cloud does seem to be moving pretty fast.
one thing i love about living in nebraska, it's the storms. there is nothing like being on the bike and watching a storm come in as you race back to town at dusk. i thought i was gonna make it back without getting rained on but it started to sprinkle as i left the gas station in hickman and i still had 10-15 miles to go. i didn't really mind the light rain at all, but then the lightning started and i was like 'uh oh'. i just put my head down and went as fast as i could. trying to stay in front of a storm is an effective way to practice your time trialing skills that's for sure! :) thankfully the full downpour held off until i was only a few blocks from my place so i didn't have to ride very far soaking wet. the bike needed a wash anyways. here's to a summer of awesome t-storms!

my legs are tired... not from riding but rather from all the dancing! saturday night i rode out to catch brent's band jarana play at the parthenon, and then sunday it was son del llano @ the bourbon theatre downtown. my rumba and salsa steps are a bit rusty so i really needed the practice.

i picked up this frameset last fall and finally got her all built last weekend. she's circa '85/'86 vintage so she's kinda old... like me. initially i built her up with aero levers but i didn't like the look so i switched them out for some retro suntour superbe levers instead. i think they go well with this vintage of frame. i really dig the paintjob, in the sun it has a pearlescent sheen to it. overall i'd say she turned out pretty sweet... so i think i will call her dulce.
