    Some people are like Slinkies. They serve no useful purpose, but they're fun to push down the stairs.

    A couple of minor upgrades: replaced the stock grips that made my carpal tunnel syndrome play up with some very comfy Ergons. Also got rid of the Saint pedals that had about as much grip as thongs on wet lino and put on some Straitline DeFactos. Combined with some new Five Tens, I can just stick my feet on the pedals and forget about them.
