The SF trip might be canceled this time around, we have no place to stay as of right now and it doesn't look like we are going to be able to get a hotel room. Even if we did get one for cheap we have no money! Hoping for the best.

On the upside I may have a meeting with someone who works in finance on Thursday, courtesy of Nans/Tats. Apparently I will be riding with him to some sort of meeting in Phoenix, which hopefully can help me meet and network with some people! Hell yeah.

And more good news: ordered: drop bars, track stem, hub converter, clips, cog, and lockring. All I need is some pedals and the Fetish Attack is DONE. Faakin Excited! Pics when I get em in :)

Some stuff from Vegas/Last Chance: (up in a bit)

That was fast..

Sadly, the Raleigh frame I bought was too big for me, so I had to let it go. Also sold the Azuki to Jayvee!. My first build up and It was hella sad to see ti go :(. But I have a new frame to build up! It’s a Fetish Attack 47cm. hopefully I can make it all sexy.

Went to Pop the Soda Shop today to pick up some root beers for the party, also got me some overpriced cola and choco milk cus the girl working there recommended it. And we found some ITS IT!!

On Thursday we went to Sedona and then Anthem. Nans got me Ray Bans even though I insisted I did not need any.

Mr. Pursuit

Got the Raleigh Pursuit frame in today from the mail. I was still passed out when the doorbell rang so Qyel got it and threw it on me. Ghetto ass packaging and it was super ducttaped all over. The condition for being so old and so cheap was not bad at all, much better than the pics up on Ebay. Def a lot of scratches but no real dings or dents and the decals look sexy. and the head badge is pretty damn beautiful (check the pics). It came with the headset cups but no bearings or all that other stuff. Luckily I was hella bored last night and was looking through my bike stuff, and I found the og headset from the Azuki bike. I even cleaned it that day and tried to figure out how to put it all together using the internets. So... when I got the bike I installed my first threaded headset!! wooh! shit I am boring. Anyways, here it is :)
