Well, they don't get in the way...

I was worried that my feet would hit the front fender or that it would make it difficult to get my bike onto the bus. Neither was the case this morning. I didn't have any rain or wet pavement to shake the fenders down with, but they don't rub, they don't get in my way, and I can still remove the front wheel and set the bike down without smashing the front fender.

It's raining now, so the fenders will get a good test this afternoon.

Also, I lost about 5 pounds over the weekend. No, I didn't diet. I got my hair cut. Not many of you have seen me recently, but my hair was getting insanely long. Now it's about 1/2" long. I'm exaggerating about losing five pounds, but I wouldn't be surprised if the cat-sized pile of hair on the floor weighed in at more than 16 ounces. It's taking a lot of people by surprise this morning. I'm telling them I lost a fight with a weed eater. It should keep my head a lot cooler. This morning, that wasn't desirable with temps near freezing. Oh well.

Random Tunage:
Butthole Surfers - Pepper
Ben Folds Five - Brick

My favorite part is that with a haircut like yours or mine, "fixing your hair" after a ride consists of rubbing your head with a towel. When you have to start combing it you know it's time for another haircut. Enjoy the low maintenance.

Yeah I went to a buzz cut myself. Even though I have to be a bit more diligent with keeping it cut it's nice to be able to wake up in the morning and not have "Bed head" and have my hair dry faster then when it's in long '7o's throwback mode..
