Addicted to Speed

Somehow, I'm already missing the feeling of having the winds buffet me while I try to keep my front wheel in line. And the smell of cheap gear oil. And that orgasmic feeling of accelerating into straight empty roads like I'm darting through the viscous air.

Riding a desk while surfing the net aimlessly is comforting yet sad.


Forget scandium - I heard it dents too easily. Forget carbon fibre seatstays - figured that it's just a marketing gimmick; who the hell uses carbon fibre for a section that handles compressive loads? They might as well use a plastic dowel and it'll probably work equally well.

Forget titanium, cause I'm too damn broke.

How about black then?
