a big wet one

The Almanzo is coming up this Saturday, and by the looks of it, it's going to be a wet one.

God I hate Microsoft computers and their way of processing image files, but this is a known fact and I'll leave it at that.

So even if it's not actually raining on Saturday, the gravel will be nice and wet, not to mention the water crossing, which has a good chance of being remarkable this year.

I'm thinking of changing out the handlebars, shifters, brake levers, and adding cross levers to the Pacer; I guess I should decide and do this prior to Saturday morning. I've got the bars, new tape, and brake levers, just need to get a shifter, I'm leaning towards bar-end, though down-tube would be a nice alternate - getting back to my roots and all. Nine-speed. Looks like a stop into 1/1 is in order, if I can get past their snobbery and bad coffee, or is it java? Ah, the power of the anonymous internet complaint. That's okay, I don't give my money to Freewheel or ACF, though I don't post anonymously about it (yes, Penn and Erik's are on the list as well, though did I have to even say that?)
