The Fantm™ Bike is almost complete!!

October 20, 2009

Ok So after the chain was being a loser, I decided to go get some stuff at WALT’S BIKE SHOP (little plug for walt’s) in Sunnyvale. Great people over there. They’re all really friendly and have a great selection of stuff! I picked up a set of Origin8 Brake levers that clamp on the top of my drop bars, I got a new gold chain, and a Kryptonite Bike lock, plus I got one of their sweet green wrist/ankle reflectors that gets me 10% off!

So yesterday I took her out for the first official test ride! It was awesome!

Oh and we fixed the problem of why the chain would like pop when I would put strain on it; turns out how many teeth of the rear cog are engaging it matters…

So we took out as much slack in the chain as we could and now the tensioner is only pushing on it a little. So in effect, most of the rear teeth are engaging the chain so no more popping!

I’ll be posting up pics of the bike later today so be sure to check back later!!

Wow… it’s like every time I EVER get attached to someone they get ripped away from me, either by themselves or someone else “better suited” to the position of boyfriend. What the eff did I do wrong?? I’m never going to figure it out I guess.

Apparently It’s easy to make cutesy little convenient excuses for not wanting to just hang out when you live like 50 miles from the guy who likes you.
I mean I understood that she would be busy but I thought maybe once in a week or so we could hang out…. that seems reasonable right? It’s been… four weeks now since we’ve hung out, two since she’s texted back, and one since she stopped answering her phone. And that’s another thing… does one text message a day seem like a lot? Nuh uhh. It’s not…

Whatever I’m done with this crap. She can spend all her free time with her friends but I don’t even get considered? I’m done with girls like that. If she doesn’t see what she’s missing then whatever. I’m done! I’M FREAKING DONE!!

Now I know how this robot feels
