Nic conquers Vigilante Drive on a fixie, beats Mt. Faber with face

NicIz2HardKore made it to the top of Vigilante Drive on his vintage 44 x 17 Battaglin fixie. Mount Faber, however, was a little too coy with her curves, so he taught her a lesson, leaving a sheen of red on her flanks  :-P

The juicy squishy details

BEN : !!!!!
BEN : holy shit! fark!
u da man!
NIC : :-)
i used my face as a brake again
fuck it hurts
BEN : !!!
on the way down?
NIC : we went vigilante, buona vista, NUS, pepys and faber
by the time we got to faber i was pretty damn tired
i fell off the bike on the way down
on the straight before the corner where i crashed 2 years ago
BEN : yeoch
NIC : i was too tired to stop the bike
and then it started wobbling
BEN : yeow
NIC : and i just went off the right side and the bike bounced away
went off as in literally fell off
poor brooks saddle :-(
but yes, calling my bike the battleship is pretty apt
no marks
no denting
minor scratches on handlebar
got poked by handlebar though
seems my wonky collarbone is fixed too
BEN : goddamn
holy shitzoid
extreme knuckle manicure
fark! road rash
NIC : oh yeah

and left a nice red trail on the road
BEN : goddamn
NIC : tore my jersey to shreds
BEN : who went with u
NIC : hmm
BEN : argh!!!!
NIC : my coach, and 2 teammates
BEN : goddamn
NIC : luckily it was a $20 jersey

BEN : goddamn

i shudder to see pic of bike and jersey

NIC : faber :-0
right before we went home
BEN : goddamn
NIC : i got spent on vigilante
skipped pepys and waited for the rest at the foot
BEN : helmet survived?

NIC : helmet merely touched the ground
BEN : damn
NIC : didn't get scratched :-(
BEN : shitz

BEN : so this was tonite?
NIC : this morning :-)
BEN : so, u r joining the Secret Fraternity of the Torn Scrotum.
