a blessed household

Kev calls up and asks to borrow an RP23, the Holy Grail of shocks.  Its gonna be tight, he needs a particular size.  He throws me the measurement, I look around our basement, at our bikes... to find two 6x1.25, a 6.5x1.5, a and 7x2.  Even got a 6.5x1.5 float R and manitou S-type for good measure.  Looking around at all that yummy plush yet efficient suspension, and I think, man, life ain't so bad after all. 

I kinda wish I'd had a coil-over shock to loan him, for extra smooth landahl ride.  Maybe Troy will loan him a soft-ride stem instead.

I often wish Rox & I road the same size bicycles. Imagine the options we'd have. And I'd totally buy her a sweet TT bike for Christmas.
