and as a consequence of my not setting up blogger properly in the
first place, all the posts previous to the one below this one have
their formatting all messed up by the html paragraph tags i put in.

dear lazyweb, how do i do a global search and replace on my blogger archives?


i've realized that part of the reason i don't post here very often is
as follows; i'm lazy, and so i won't post for a while, and then i'll
feel behind, which makes me feel all angsty, so i'll agonize for a
while, and get more behind. rinse, lather, repeat as needed.

in an effort to change that, i invested the 15 seconds necessary to
set up blogger so i can update it via email, which, with any luck,
will make it less of a hassle ('cause you know, clicking on a
bookmark, and then on a couple of buttons to publish a post is such a
hassle) for me to post.

we'll see how it goes.

it's my BAG baby!

i've been away on vacation, and got back a week ago, but instead of telling you about that right now i'm going to tell you about my new bike.
i built the whole thing up (including the wheels) from parts i painstakingly collected -- mostly from japan -- over about six months.
the frame is a 'peleton' (which, if you're a huge bike-nerd like me, you'll think is funny) and it's a keirin frame.
all the parts except for the rims are njs-approved

The riders all use similar steel framed bikes, specially built racing machines. They have some choice over the gear they ride, 12-16 teeth on the sprocket and up to 55 on the chainring, but only frames and components approved by the Nihon Jitensha Shinkokai (Japanese Bicycle Association) NJS, are permitted to compete at Keirin races.)
from here

at some point i suppose i should do a post about my bikes; currently i have 3 track bikes, 2 road bikes, a coaster-brake bike, and 3 frames. everything except the coastie are in my apartment.
yes, i'm aware i have a problem.
