    Jeez, don't tell me you actually tried to read that blog. I stopped bothering.

    It was good to meet RS and to watch him race. Though I doubt that he needs any publicity from the likes of me to be honest!

    I read your blog. I admit that I have to force myself to finish most of the posts.

    We have completely different cycling interests, and completely different blogs, and completely different readerships -- your much larger than mine.

    Like you, I've done the academic publication thing. Its effect on voice is somewhere between swamp muck and dreadnought cloth. Edit that stuff.

    Oh yeah? Well I tried to read your blog. Couldn't get past the banner.
    (That yummy bike...)

    Anyhow. The tone is the tone. It works with the target audience, for the most part. Honestly there is no reason why you or most people here should be reading LB.

    In any event, I award you bonus points for the Snoop pic in the RS post (he's the first guy you bumped in to).

    Why not?

    It's got cool pictures and it gives me necessary exposure to a whole world of bike stuff outside of my myopic masters racer shithole. It joy me gives, and other anastrophic lulz.

    Robert/Doof - if I could race, I would be a very happy camper.

    But enough about me seriously. What is that fork on the Rock Lobster?

    Reynolds Ouzo Pro -- it's what Paul picked for it. I told him what my saddle height, setback, and reach was, and left everything but the color up to him. Better that way.

    Jerk - My goodness, thank you. And PS I get emails asking about "the rooster bikes" every time I spot one locally and take a photo. Some day I'll spot one in my size and try it.

    That seems to be the way to go. It's what I did with my Seven (well, okay I also asked for no TCO, but otherwise stayed out of it and even left the fit entirely up to them). They did their thing and I love my bike. Of course that doesn't stop me from messing with geo on other bikes and writing verbose posts about it. I guess they call that a Paradox.

    I thought it was a good story and was happy to receive it. The best part was that I didn't know it was there, or even planned, until I saw the links to the site on my hitcounter. If all of it is Velouria's observation of me based on reading my texts, and chatting with me at the race venue, I'll take it.

    I am not a fan of the anonymous comments sections and I would trade the trade all of the compliments and props in return for vaporizing the callous ones. It bothers me that so much ignorance and snark hide behind nameless posts, particularly when it's about me. Perhaps the goal, or the lesson, should to not care or to remain detached. It's easier to do when it's about someone else atmo. But reading some of it is like watching a train wreck.

    Again, thanks CWinters. I enjoyed the write-up on your site.

    Wow you both got raked over the coals in the comments. As 311 said, fuck the naysayers, they don't mean a thing.

    Seriously? And I thought the comments on that post were overwhelmingly positive! You guys are too sensitive :)

    Personally I find it hard to draw the line between rooting out anonymous snark vs censoring critical feedback. Just seems like there's a huge gray area. So early on, I established a tradition of letting all the comments through, unless they are outright abusive (which, FWIW, happens pretty rarely). I figure if people have something negative to say, I'd rather face it than deny it. I've been lucky and this system has worked out okay so far.

    That's on my blog though. Elsewhere, I cannot stand reading about myself, good or bad. I'd rather not see it.
