That bag is.... what's the word I'm looking for? Ali? Any ideas?

Oh, and get some damn road tires for that bike. I like the Michelin City. HUGE difference in efficiency, quietness.

I've been looking for a really good messenger bag for a while and decided to give Chrome a try.  So far this bag has been totally bad ass but it's kind of small so I ordered a large one in mint green that I'm going to try out this weekend.  The pannier bag I was using is great for certain things but I started getting nervous with my laptop strapped to it in traffic instead of strapped to my body.

Yeah, those are the original tires that came with this thing when I bought it eight years ago.  I've been meaning to replace them but just haven't figured out the best tires to buy.  Really what I want to do is remove both of the derailers, 86 the cassette and go to a single speed with a 2:1 gear ratio.

3-6" in the lighter blue band.   6-12" in the darker.

Accuweather says latest run of models shows no change.  Still the same snow map as above.

It's there. It's just washed out. The pneumonia affecting your eyes?

I don't know what kind of weird ouija board stuff MDS pulled, but the latest NAM and Euro models have no snow in D.C.

latest GFS map - every model shows no snow for D.C., but it's going to be close.  Roanoke will have a rough day.

Shocker.  I look forward to posting pictures of me in a Speedo outside of Nats Park tomorrow morning. 

Roanoke will have a rough day.

Every day is a rough day for Roanoke.  That truly is the town G-d crap on.

You've got my sympathies - Roanoke is such a dump.  Even driving through it makes me want to blow my brains out.

Just Roanoke because it's a total dump where I spent 15 years.
