Props, Of The "Mad" Variety

First of all, The Hawley Blog's road racing buddy, the Portuguese Man of War, Tiago Machado, brought the pain and finished a cracking 39th out of 159 at the Tour Of Romandie prologue. Tiago is representin' for the Radioshack crew this season in Europe so let's all wish him the best. We have no idea how to speak Portugeuse so we'll leave it to our rudimentary Italian: In bocca al lupo! (figuratively, not literally). Win a stage and there's an Eleven81 tri bag stuffed with rancid Sport Beans in your future...

Before he joined the red, strapless dress wearers ("Cycle Sport" words, not mine) of Radioshack, we knew him in the unmistakable checkerboard kit of Team Right Said Fred...
Second of all, big thanks to our friend Katy at Hayes Brakes for the wonderful blue whale letter opener (it's like she knew one of The Blog's favorite books is "Moby Dick", kismet!). Great for openin' friendly correspondences, final notices, subpoenas and cease & desists, but even better for delicately cutting through Singleworks zip ties on saddle packaging. If you get a spare moment, feel free to peruse the stomping ground of her beloved Team Pegasus. They are good, honest, hardworking bicycle folk with a penchant for racing and an appreciation of the finer things in life. Also, be sure to ask Teenwolf in sales what Katy got HIM.
Thirdly, please acquaint thyself with George's new Pake cruiser (BIKE2000) with the necessary accouterments for dandying about town. A few mods here, a few mods there, a few mods here. It's that easy folks...
The black Singleworks cork grip (GRIP0532) replaces the stock brown...
Black Gyes saddlebag with brass buckles (BAGS1602) for assorted bobbles and trinkets...
The heavy duty yet elegant Soma Deco rack (RACK1200)! Michael Dorn, Star Trek the Next Generation's Worf says "I whole heartedly endorse this product and/or charity. Klingons rule."
Soma's Silver Bullet tail light (LITE6200) keeps the cruiser sufficiently retro while alerting traffic...
Eleven81 alloy pedals (PED6182) replace the plastic stock pedals. Nuthin' fancy...
An oft overlooked detail, the kickstand. We recommend the best kickstand in the world, KICK1005 from Greenfield, the leader in kickstand research and development.

George sure will look precious riding around town with that cool pink bell.
