My BAD @SS TT Rig!!


Its been awhile since I put up pics of my TT rig. Working on fit with Mike Vanucci and bio-mechanics with Sean Gilbert weve come up with something new and "legal". Thats UCI legal!! Dont get me started on that again. Anyways, it looks Pro-tour with that scary drop to the bars, but I swear its comfortable and very aero.

On my knee-I went to see the doctor and he pulled and pushed for a minute then said, lets get an MRI!! Not a big surprise. I didnt know what to ask so I just asked in the meantime if I can ride. He said yes so that in itself is a good sign of no Major torn muscles. The MRI itself is Monday, but its in North Canton. I dont know if this is purely a "you scratch my back and I'll scratch your back" arrangement between doctor and radiologist, but what he did say was that by going to this MRI location my knee will be looked at by an expert in NY on knees. Between them they should have a very good assessment of whats causing the pain and weakness in the knee.

Heres something gross I didnt know about MRI's. Did you know if you work around metal you have to get an orbital scan (Xray) of your eyes? The reason being that if theres any metal in your eye the MRI's magnet will pull it out. I am thinking one would hope that it comes out the front, not into the brain. Not that it wouldnt help me. As my buddy mentioned, you know how they discovered that right?? OUCH!!! Poor first person!!

I like how the snow is taller than you bike.

Jeremy-thank you very much!! I'm a wee bit scared of what it might be, but being optimistic.

Robert-Remember last February? That was a lot of snow!! I made a winter playground for Audrey in the backyard with tunnels, serpentine sledding hill and deep trenches going all over the back yard and driveway.

Just last week we one of the janitors at University Hospitals here in Cleveland was told to vacuum inside one of the MRI rooms, so he did. fortunately he pushed the vacuum cleaner into the room, rather than the other way around, so when it went flying into the magnet no one was hurt. Haven't heard for sure, but I'm sure someone lost a job over that one...
