Tag, you're it...

Dammit. I've seen this round of tag go through several of the blogs I catch. It was interesting to see it make the rounds from one to the next. I thought I lived in a sort of anonymity-ville, but I guess not. Thanks to Marty over to The Prairie Peddler, I've been tagged so I'll play. On to the questions.

If you could have any one - and only one - bike in the world, what would it be?
Ya know, I really don't have a favorite anything - movie, song, food, bike... If someone told me they would buy me any bike in the world, and I had to pick one, I would probably have a titanium Steve Potts frame built around a 700x45 tire, and that would perhaps also be able to squeeze in a 2.1 nanoraptor. Maybe it also have some custom Ritchey Break-Away connectors if I was to ever travel... It would have a tallish head tube for the drop bars I would run.

Do you already have that coveted dream bike? If so, is it everything you hoped it would be? If not, are you working toward getting it? If you're not working toward getting it, why not?
No, but I've got a steel version of it. I'm having trouble finding someone who would buy it for me.

If you had to choose one - and only one - bike route to do every day for the rest of your life, what would it be, and why?
A little dirt, a little pavement, trees, a climb in the dirt, a descent in the dirt, a climb on the road, a descent on the road, a view, some flora, some fauna, some shade, some open sun, a good place to stop and have a peanut butter sandwich, and all that I can ride right from my door. Oh wow, I just described this ride.

What kind of sick person would force another person to ride one and only one bike ride for the rest of his/her life?
Yeah, sicko!

Do you ride both road and mountain bikes? If both, which do you prefer and why? If only one or the other, why are you so narrow minded?
Yes. Yes. Ya know, you can ride a road bike in the dirt and a mountain bike on the road.

Have you ever ridden a recumbent? If so, why? If not, describe the circumstances under which you would ride a recumbent?
Yes, on a test ride after repairing one. Didn't do much for me.

Have you ever raced a triathlon? If so, have you also ever tried strangling yourself with dental floss?
Isn't that that thing where a person's got to swim, bike, and run? Uh, no.

Suppose you were forced to either give up ice cream of bicycles for the rest of your life. Which would you give up and why?
When there's pie and cookies, who needs ice cream.

What is a question you think this questionnaire should have asked, but has not? Also, answer it.
Dog or cat? Dog.

I'm also supposed to tag other folks, butcha know what, I don't know any others. The few that I do know have already played this little game so this thread is dead. Besides, I'm anything but superstitious. Superstition ain't the way.

(What's playing: Stevie Wonder Superstition - couldn't help but find that song on the ole iPod. What a fantastic album too!)

Somehow I knew you'd be all surly about it Mike! Are you already turning into that grumpy shop owner? I know I've got my moments....
