There's a Guest blogger today, Stevie.

"First of all, I have to say that "sport" means cycling to me, at least if we are not talking about watching it on TV. I enjoy being outside, seeing the country, feeling the wind and the weather. That's why I decided to buy a new racing bike a few months ago. And when the bike finally was delivered, I have to say that it's nothing less than a biker's dream ! It's a Droessiger Alu Lite, black, with a Shimano 105 group. o.K., o.K., you can even spend more money by buying a full carbon frame and an Ultegra or a Dura Ace group. But the Black Lady I got for my money was worth every single cent. No, I don't get any money by Droessiger, I don't ... But I can now understand some musicians and their emotional attitude regarding their guitars ..."


And isn't she beautiful, the black lady?

Scary stuff! I recommend Flann O'Brien's The Third Policeman for a tale of love between man and bicycle...

Oh my! Do you really think, Myles na gCopaleen might help me with this? How can I avert the threatening danger?

I think, you recognized the subtext of my Guest Blog very well, Rob.

Yesterday, I was talking with a collegue of mine about this subject, and I can tell you: I am just a very small light. Carbon frames ? Titanium frames ? 30 gears ? 20 is enough for the hard guys ...
