Busy, busy, busy. Not much time for thinking about bikes these last few days.
Computer problems, work problems and tonight the backbox of the exhaust fell off the car on the motorway transforming a normally burbly motor into a TVResque monster. Fortunately my hearing is now recovering.

BikeBiz.com has been reporting on the Shimano gruppo delays since December 2003 and on the raw materials shortage since February.
