Curly's bike check

Curly and his ear ringOkay... it's pretty hard not to have a good bike when you work in a bike shop... you have all the latest gear sitting under your nose, it's just too tempting not to take a few bits every now and again. I guess Carlos spends more time in Pijin than anyone else (even me!) so it's understandable that he finds it a little harder to keep the same part on his bike for more than a couple of months without changing to something better. Slut! So what has he got now? He's been a bit slow out of the starting block this month... and got himself a new Simple Enigma frame (but only after Greg, Ryan, Scot and Scott (Angry) got theirs first...).

Too bad he can't ride it though... ankle injury should mean 5 weeks of no riding! He'll just have to make do with polishing it up over the next few weeks... Oh well, at least he has a new Profile mini cassette hub body in purple coming tomorrow. Rebuilding his wheel should keep him from wanting to ride his bike for a couple of hours at least...
