Keirin is a Star

Wednesday's post on All Hail The Black Market was a pleasant surprise for me.  The day prior, I sent Stevil a link to a video I took of Keirin's first bike ride and he chose to add it to his post.  I set up the iBert on a townie bike and took her for a spin around the neighborhood.  It was a short ride, but she was thrilled.  There will be many more adventures for her and her sister by bike.

I'm especially grateful for Stevil's Photoshop skills.

Arrived: Selle Italia SLR Kit Carbonio 2 Saddle

A new Selle Italia SLR Kit Carbonio 2 saddle just arrived and I'm pretty excited to test it out.  It is replacing an Ergon SR3 Pro Carbon saddle that I found to be pretty terrible.  Because of the shape of the Ergon, the front wings dug into my hamstrings with each pedal stroke.  I've been happy with Selle Italia saddles in the past, with similar shapes to this one, so I'm hopeful it will be a good fit.
