    Our Baghdad Cycling club (jerseys? just kidding) have been doing their own repairs and what I hear is they were sharing one floor pump.

    Talked to my LBS and understand he is sending at least another floor pump also patch kits. I don't want to ask how many or what kind, whatever he does is great.

    I'm impressed that Bruce wants to make sure that when he's safely home others still there may have what they need to ride. He's not one to say "hey, I want a bike for me" Maybe someday they'll all be safely home and can leave the bike stuff to a kid?

    SouthernBelle has her finger on the pulse of what he/they may need.

    Silver and Mr. Silver are working on some stuff, talk to them. That way he does not end up with 5 boxes of spokewrenches and no spokes or something like that ;-)

    Well I took my first reel ride today. I just got in from around 10 miles of hard riding in the dirt gravel and rock. Let me tell you, my chest is heaving the sweat is dripping, my heart is pounding my lungs burn and I can hardly walk my legs are so weekÖ I FEEL GREAT!!

    I will be having my wife send me another seat. I donít know if itís the seat that is way to hard, or my *** thatís way too soft, but somethingís gotta give here.

    No pictures today, I went out alone (Iím not supposed to do that) but I just had to get out there and ride!

    Thank you all!!!

    Bruce,

    It sounds like you had a great ride. Enjoy the rides and you'll feel like your ol' racer self soon.

    I was at my LBS yesterday and shop owner Chris says 2 floor pumps and a bunch of patch kits will soon be there. We understand that our adopted Baghdad Cycling club has one floor pump.

    Enjoy yourself and be careful

    Otherwise, Bruce says they're set for now for bike stuff. But he knows "who you gonna call" if he/they need more.

    ** bump once more **

    I have good news from MSG Hall. Quarterly I've been sending my Bicycling mags to his "Baghdad bike team."

    He'll be going home for good in late July.

    He said he's looking forward to going bike shopping with his daughter and get her a new bike. She rides a Diamond Back 'round college which was state o' the art a decade ago. The family plans camping trips, ride some fire roads in the mountains.

    So she'll want something that will manage light off road but also tool around campus.

    He sends thanks to the group for all we've done.
