A Very Public Thank You

Allow me if you would a moment to both thank and express dislike for someone I think of as a dear friend in the blogging world, though I don’t really know him outside of the blogosphere. OK, so not really dislike, but you'll get the sarcastic point as you read. Ya see, the story goes a bit like this.
A while back I was posting about getting a trainer. I was quite anxious for it really, but then had a bunch of people basically talk me out of it. They said I wouldn’t really get into it, and that sometimes people actually walk away from it hating being on a bike afterward. John from my LBS (local bike shop for you outsiders) actually went so far as to suggest I hold out for a basic mountain bike, go figure. Well, long story short I thought that sounded like a good idea. So I was talking about it in a past post and Bluenoser
dropped me a line that he had some rollers to give up after buying a trainer himself. So he recently shipped them to me, and I just know I’m going to wind up regretting this.
Anyway, I just wanted to take a minute to both express my dislike of Bluenoser
for his quest to completely break my tubby ass, and thank him immensely for what I consider to be his hugely amazing generosity. Thanks again BN, that was truly a cool gesture on your part, hopefully we’ll get to ride up in NS someday!
For those of you who are interested in reading a really great, funny, entertaining bike blog, check Bluenosers blog out. It’s called 50K Loop NS, and it’s by far one of the best I’ve read!

That's awesome - if you are a big guy it might make your butt sore. My b/f says they rip his ass up!!
