Velocite Geos Update

New Velocite Geos frames are out of the prototype phase

I’ve just heard that the new Velocite Geos frames will soon be out of the prototype phase.

It came in at an amazing 873g for size L (570mm top tube C-C with rear derailleur hanger, add 5g for BB cable guide). This super low weight is also amazing for another reason: the original sample was 877g. The 4g variance from sample to sample is truly spectacular! I cannot commit to this amazing consistency for the full production run, but it should be possible since our manufacturing partners very clearly understand the technological and marketing significance of this frame.

Weight Weenies will be happy to note that the Velocite Unity and Elemental full carbon clamps are on this build. They will also be available in a short while. The Geos will come with the Bora S fork at 350g, and a new headset at 79g. The TLCS31 seat post will also be available and weigh about 157g.

Those are some nice light parts from Velocite. Send us an email to order yours at asteriskcycles at gmail dot com.

Training & Diet Week 12 Day 1-7

A lot of stuff happened this week, but I’d rather not get into it. Towards the end of the week, I wasn’t eating much. I didn’t have an appetite. Other than that, I’m adapting well to life without refined sugar. It’s hard sometimes, but the odd smoothie or fruit keeps me away from it.

Monday
2 milk teas, watermelon, pineapple, rice and chicken, soup, 3-egg green salad.

Tuesday
2 milk teas, 1 herbal tea, pineapple, noodles and soup, 1 chicken wrap, 1 sausage wrap, 1 plain wrap.

Wednesday
3-banana smoothie, 1 milk tea, mocha-ice smoothie, mango smoothie, rice with pork, pork cutlets, cantaloupe.

Thursday
1 milk tea, 2-banana smoothie, 2 wrap with sausages, chapati, cantaloupe.

Friday
1 milk tea, 2-banana smoothie, curry rice w pork, chicken wrap, ¾ melon.

Saturday
1 milk tea, 10″ pizza, ¾ watermelon

Sunday
1 milk tea, 2-banana smoothie, 1 slice of honey melon

24 Day 8 3PM-4PM S08E24 (Fox)

Cast of 24 Day 8, image via Wikipedia

After a somewhat lukewarm and disappointing season 7, 24 is back with another season. It’s been a while since we saw Jack Bauer and it looks like he’s fully recovered from his ordeal from the end of last season.

Jack is living it up with his family. He’s fully reconciled with Kim and her husband and he’s spending time with his granddaughter Terri, who looks like she’s about 4. One of the biggest mistakes of the screenwriters in the last season was coming up with a fictional African country. It’s really bad that they did this. They’ve done it again with this season. This season features an Islamic republic named Kamistan. WTF you imbeciles? Didn’t you guys learn anything from last season?

This is why Spooks is so much more entertaining because it’s more realistic. I’m kind of annoyed that they’ve done it again this time around. Still, it’s good to see Jack at it again. There was another thing that kind of annoyed me. Chloe is having trouble with the new CTU systems. She’s been back a month and has trouble learning them. It’s really surprising and doesn’t make much sense, since Chloe has always been the über-analyst of this season.

There are some interesting additions in the cast. Katee Sackhoff is most intriguing. She plays another analyst, who’s involved with an agent named Cole.

Warning: spoilers ahead.
