I just found the comment box so this is a little late. I cycled part of Bike Around the Buttes with Jim and it was great fun. If your looking for good company and a steady supply of Fig Newtons Jims your man. Looking forward to riding with Jim again in the future.

2016-09-21: The remodeling project is mostly done. I've changed jobs twice since joining BikeJ, and each has been farther from my home than the previous job. Currently I'm making a push to get back to regular cycle commuting, at least 2-3 days per week--I'm riding to/from the Capitol Corridor train, about 35 km/day.

The bike-related articles on my blog are updated most frequently.

I joined BikeJournal in early Feb 2006. (Thanks to live2bike for introducing me to BikeJ!)

I don't have a lifetime odometer reading for this bike. I'm on my third cycle computer, and the "lifetime" odo is taken from this unit.

2006-03-10: New chain @ 260.5 km

2006-04-28: Replaced original (?) tires today at 909.0 km. I've been having trouble with the new chain slipping off the cogs, talked to the wrenches at Peak Adventures--they confirmed my hunch that the cogs were worn. Estimated cost for new cogs/casette+rear wheel is ~$400. A new Sequoia would only be about $1100. Hmm...

2006-05-11: Cogs were causing me a lot of grief last weekend, but I didn't want to spend a few hundred dollars to fix the problem. New set (same gearing) installed today at 1100 km, for under $20.

Lifetime Odometer: 2,216.8 km
