Lola, Lo-lo-lo-lo-Lola

Lola, 2004 Cervélo P2K. HED-3 front wheel, Wheelbuilder disc cover rear. Neglected since October.

Dearest Lola,

In truth, I can't remember the last time we rode. It may have been the CMC Fun Du; in fact, I think it probably was. Since then, you have sat all winter in the dark basement. I did give you a nice front-end upgrade. And I even bought you a nice crack-pipe. But other than that, you've sat patiently.

I felt your pain too when your cousin invited us to Hamilton's Island; but we were too dedicated, and instead worked through the temptation.

The weekly duathlons will be starting shortly. I'll get you polished and lubed shortly. Maybe we'll even flip your stem this year!

Hang in there,
