I'll see you at Vallejo on the street, man. ;p And good luck spinning with those God-forsaken chains. Tape up your hands so they don't get scratched. :D

What, the chains? They leave scratch-marks and scratch the paint off the shaft if you don't keep the chain tight, and they cut up your hands pretty bad if you catch them wrong, which doesn't work too well on the hands. I don't recommend spinning with them, but some people like 'em on. Can't argue with preference. ;p

solution to scratch marks and paint chips = black shaft + black sharpie.

solution to hands getting destroyed = wearing grip gloves.

What other competitions are Franklin going to?

Ehh, I've had the chain actually start tearing the grip gloves, and the black Sharpie just looks tacky, IMO. ;p

We'll be at Santa Cruz, Foothill, Lodi, Fairfield, and Vallejo. Is Armijo still doing Fairfield AND Lincoln on the same day?

Woo. Go non-DM's!
If a man loses pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music in which he hears, however measured, or far away...
