My pedals came off!

... and my new Shimano PD-M505's went on! Too bad I have no shoes to mount the cleats on, no helmet to wear while riding, and no rear wheel on this bike!

This could be a pretty big week for me. Wednesday, I have my follow-up appointment with the Ear/Nose/Throat doc. He's going to go over my CT Scan imagery and probably examine my sinuses. I fully intend on asking when I can get back in the saddle.

The bike shop manager apologized for the delay on my cassette today, and said it will be ready to go by Thursday. Thursday is also pay day, which means if the doc gives me the all clear to ride, I'll probably pick up my cycling shoes and a new helmet at the same time as I pick up my rear wheel and brand spankin' new cassette. I already have a brand new chain to go with it, so the Outlook should be STYLIN' by Friday. Here's hoping my ol' noggin is up to the task. Only the doctor knows.

In other news, I was greeted with this wonderful sight Sunday afternoon when I finally awoke from my working-overnight coma. I must have run over something malevolent on my 4:00AM trip home from work after the daylight saving time thing. I had to spend about 30 minutes in the rain yesterday putting the crummy baby spare on my car so that I could at least get to the bus stop today. It will work for a while. There's a road bike on craigslist right now that would cost me about the same amount of money I'll spend replacing this damned tire. Arrgh.

Finally, it was so nice out when I got off work today. It had to be close to 70 degrees. I snapped this picture of the towers atop Bartle Hall while I was walking to my bus.

Best luck with the doctor. I went to SPD padals this year and like them a lot. I have them on both my bikes.

I'm finally back to bike commuting, and that also is a nice feeling. Especially considering the weather we are getting. 50's and 60's.
