I hope you all are having a wonderful day wherever you are.
I’m throwing the CycleDog a bone here: Ed came across a replica of Eddie Merckx’s Molteni jersey at a thrift shop. It turns out the European size XL is more like a size XS on buff, muscular Oklahoma Americans, so he’s giving it up for trade. Read this post for the details.

Sara says girls rock. I agree.
Backcountry.com to start selling high end cycling stuff. By mail order. Will this work?

April 1 is probably over by the time you read this, but this one’s pretty good: Rap Star 50 cent gets all urban with the Wanksta track bike. The Wanksta’s gold-plated frame, fork, hubs and rims are complimented by black decals designed by Fiddy himself. The nine bullet holes across the top tube are both a reminder of the attempt on his life (in May of 2000) and a warning to would be bike thieves. The custom Beretta 9mm (included) clicks into a proprietary quick-release bottle cage mount, which is quite possibly the first of its kind. Go to Urban Velo for details and photo.
