well, tomorrow is the big padden mountain pedal. i'll be entering the race, but we'll see if i end up racing in it. the weather has been great, so it will at least be a good day for a ride. plus, there's always bandito's burritos to chomp at the race. here are a couple of frames with fresh paint. the black mtb ss has green metal flake. sweet. it is warm and sunny, but the cross frame is rad. a little bit of prep, and they are out the door. that's all for now. more on the race soon.
