November? Seriously?

According to my usual timeliness measure, it is about time to post again.  Not much has changed with my weight. At least not for the good.  Still mostly bouncing back and forth between 210 and 215 with occasional bounces higher.

In other news, my prized bike, my Soma Double Cross broke yesterday. The right rear dropout broke right where it enters the chainstay. Sigh.  I don't know whether I want to fix it or not.  Part of me says yes it is worth it.  Part of me wonders if I could trust it.  Logically, I know I should, but I can allow my non-logical side some say in this I suppose. 


  1. #1 Propitious day for entry, as 11/15 is my birthday. Grace indeed. #2 Frame breakage is pretty unacceptable. What of the vaunted magic of steel? Sorry.

  2. I checked with Soma and, as expected, they do not warranty 10 year old frames. They did offer to give me a discount on a replacement. I am thinking about getting a Surly Ogre instead. I nearly bought a Karate Monkey when I bought the Double Cross so an Ogre seems a reasonable replacement.
