bikeFeatures - Dork got a new Rocket

By Tom Segar

One Sunday morning in 2001 before a training ride, a hung-over housemate of Greg Worm (programmer and Dork Rocket founding father) was sick of hearing Greg clicking around the kitchen with his bike shoes and said the immortal words

A Letter From Micki...

Hey MTN - Hope you are having a great summer!! John and I are racing The San Francisco Triathlon...well John is racing tntI am hoping not to be shark bait in the swim or a beached whale on the run...We are doing the race with Team in Training and John is an Honoree again for the San Francisco TNT chapter. Since we decided to do this last minute we are looking for a fast and easy way to get the word out to help get donations....

of course I thought of you and your website.

I know John isn't big on advertising or talking about his cancer but I was thinking maybe a Q and A from you on your website would be a positive way to promote our TNT fundraising...

logoK-Swiss is one of our site sponsors and as with all of our indispensable advertisers, we jump at every opportunity to be as obsequious as possible. We need them desperately and as long as they have butts, our lips will be puckered.

In truth, we have a totally "Rock n Roll" relationship with our advertisers. They enjoy fun and and a little outrage as much as we do. To demonstrate this, we'd like you to check out K-Swiss' new "Tubes" video. IT'S AWESOME. It stars that guy (Danny Miller) who plays George Clooney's little sister's fiance in the totally great movie, "Up in the Air," and he's a downright hoot! LINK

Quite often a handful of runners get together before the team run to get in a few extra miles. I was not really up for the idea considering the icicles that would likely form on my face but peer pressure by two of my close friends at the time got me out of bed. We arrived at the lake and there was a handful of people there I knew and some that I didn't. One "newbie" caught my eye. All dressed in black with the best blue eyes and smile. Granted that's about all that was exposed due to the layers upon layers of run clothes but still :) That was my first introduction to Mark....

Golden Rides...

"Hi. I'm a triathlete and I pee on MY bike." I then passed the sacred glide stick to the guy next to me. "Hello. I'm a triathlete and I have been peeing on the bike for 4 years." He passed the stick to the next person...

No one tells you these dirty little secrets when they first try to induct you into their secret club. No one mentions these trivial absurdities when they woo you with flashy bikes and attempt to indoctrinate you into their "healthy" lifestyle. You don't find out until later, when you become....one of them. (Insert scary high pitched noise here.)

I was zipping up the guy's wetsuit next to me when the subject came up. "Rose, you know..
