It's not a utensil fork you!

I have a fork! I can't really speak openly about how I got it, but lets just say that two very awesome guys took pity on me and hooked me up in a major way. I was so excited when I was presented w/ said fork that I nearly cried. Seriously. But tough girls don't cry...

I spoke w/ AC's hubby today who is former car painter and he's going to look into paint for me. He seems like a totally nice guy with lots of skill so there is a good possibility that I will find a way to make this fork match my bike - right now - it's red and black and white - it comes from a Scott CR1 - all carbon, including the steerer. Not the lightest fork on the market but MUCH lighter than what I had!

As a side note, I was looking at the photo of the bike on my blog which is a stock photo and not my actual bike (duh!).... I just noticed that the fork on my bike is all black w/ Easton decals. I went to Jamis' site and sure enough...same pic. If you've seen my bike, you know that my bike's fork fades from the "pistachio" (yes, that's what it's called...and yes, I do realize it doesn't look pistachio...) to black. Weird. But at least I have an idea of what the all black fork will look like on my bike...

Anyone know where I can get some good Jamis decals that'll match my bike?

I'm also gearing up for the Claxton century; this will be my first full century and I'm crazy nervous!! A few SCC members have shown interest so I expect to register and start looking into a room sometime over the next week or so...anyone wanna room w/ me?


  1. If you want to average 8mph with thirty minute stops every twenty miles, I'm your girl.

  2. whatever...

    Thanks for the comment...readership (is that a real word...?) seems low cycling buddies have obviously discovered that I'm a horrible writer with a miserable sense of humor. Even my stalkers have disappeared...

  3. No, I think it's the brief dropoff in riding due to your that's you're back in the mix, it'll pick up. Readers always drop off after a break in postings, because they check for several days, see you haven't posted anything, then they give up looking for a little while. Happened to me when I was on vacay.

  4. yea...that's what they say... it sucks when you only have two readers and one of them stops reading...LOL
