FS: 1994 Specialized Epic Comp

I have been saving money for the last year to replace my road bike.  It is a decent bike, but lacks the stiffness of more modern ones and weighs a few pounds heavier.  It would be less expensive for me to replace the bike than to upgrade components.

I have been riding a 1994 Specialized Epic Comp.  These are carbon tubed with alloy lugs, with an alloy fork.  Came with a full Shimano 105 group but the rear wheel has been replaced and is now an Ultegra hub and Mavic rim.  It is a 60cm frame.  If you would be interested, I am asking $450.  Seems reasonable considering I have seen them go for $350 to $600 on eBay/craigslist.  Help me sell this please, got an eye for a steel framed Masi.


Friday was not a fun morning. Found Ethan's cat, Rocket, under the deck. Found the snow tore up were there had been quite a skirmish between him and a St. Bernard. I buried Rocket before Ethan got home. Broke my heart to tell him the news.

The 2011 event schedules are rolling out. I have delusions of hitting several this year, we shall see how many I actually make it to. Might try a couple of sprint tri's this year. Been a long time since I did any serious swimming though. Of course a lot depends on my physical condition, which depends on other responsibilities.

  • Thu Mar 17, 2011 Gravel Rouser DHTT (maybe)
  • Fri Mar 18, 2011 Gravel Rouser Grab-n-Git (maybe)
  • Sat Mar 19, 2011 Gravel Rouser Classic
  • Sat May 7, 2011 OU AIA Sprint Triathlon
  • Sat May 14, 2011 Wilkesville 2 Wilkesville Classic and Grand Fondo
  • Sat Jun 4, 2011 Mohican 100 (wishful thinking here)
  • Sun Jun 26, 2011 Race to the Hills @ Lake Hope
  • Sat Jul 16, 2011 Athens Quilt Barn Ride
  • Sat Jul 30, 2011 Race on the River- Sprint Triathlon
  • Sun Sep 11, 2011 Farmhand XC @ Bob Evan's Farm
  • Sat Sep 17, 2011 Hocking Hills Indian Run
  • Probably try to do the Frakenbike 50 too (sometime in Sept if like last year).
See you there.

No post should be complete without some pictures. Here is a great one that I wish I had the DSLR for.  Taken on Saturday (1/22) with my phone.

Between running Michael to play practice/production (he ran lights and helped with audio), Ethan's basketball practices and games, the multiple snowfalls, Brock's inability to sleep, church, family and regular life, I can't even get time to ride the trainer in the basement. Drove to work this morning and my tracks were the only ones on the road.

2010 Review

Not much to say, totals were kind of low. Running: 174 miles, 25.5 hours. Cycling: 745 miles, 60 hours. All in, an estimated 63,696 calories. The year started out strong, but the activity trailed off heavily in May, with a good excuse.

Christmas Lights - Really?

Really, what causes half a strand of lights to all burn out at one time? All on a pre-lit tree to boot. Lots of fun changing bulbs.
