Because that’s how it is.

I just picked up my new Surly at Retro City Cycles. It’s BEAUTIFUL! And Diane Blake said, “It’s going to rain now, because you’re on a new bike.” That’s how it is. And the sky opened up the minute I rolled out of the parking lot. And I was wearing my office clothes (such as they are). And I only had a mile to ride. And I got drenched. And wet jeans weigh more than steel bike frames.

And I sure do love fenders!

Here’s a sneak preview… more pics and a review will follow when the bike is complete.

    What? All my bikes have fenders! Okay, the velomobile is just one big fender. Where does fred come into this?

    Just kidding, I know the term.

    More initiation on the way home after working with a client until 9:30. It isn’t raining anymore, but the roads are wet. No wheel-spray up my nose, no stripe up my back!

    What a sweet ride!

    I’m waiting for a couple of accessories that were on backorder so I can take a photo of the bike completely appointed. Right not I have the axiom rack on it, which is functional, but unlovely.

    No before and after pics, I guess. I suppose we can wait.
