    Are these Cannondales going to be red and are you budgeting for UCI clothing offence fines when you
    do your Cipo imitation from a few years back at the business end of the train ?

    P.S. Economics 43: "I don't know how much that custom Colnago will cost next month, so I'll enter it
    as $0 on the budget. (I don't know how much I'll earn, either, but I'll give that an optimistic
    projection.....)" 4 more years!

    I know of some guys that outlaw summitted this one during construction. They donned hard hats,
    slapped some blueprints under their arms and slipped into a work elevator. Took some nice photos
    from the top.
