..99..100..Ready or not, here I come.

This is an entirely new concept to me so let's hope I'm doing it correctly. Looks like I've been tagged by Weiland, which means I'm it and must now tag someone else. Groover... you're it!

This particular meme was started by Fat Lad, and the idea is based on the “my old mother went to the market and bought” memory game. Only in this case, each blogger in the thread lists something that was bought at the LBS in June. Here’s the list thus far, with my addition at the bottom:

  1. Fat Lad went to the bike shop in June and all he bought was: A new PC971 Sram Chain and a Cassette Spanner and a chain wear tool.
  2. TOB went to the bike shop in June and all she bought was: a new pair of ruby red Sidis and some X-Series Cleats (but it’s only the 4th!). (Editors Note: Surprise, Surprise…a lady cyclist bought shoes…Ruby Red no less…LOL!).
  3. Mike J went to the bike shop in June and he bought two Gel Flasks and some Handle Bar Grips.
  4. 331 Miles went to the bike shop in June and he bought a pair of Performance Ultra II Bib Shorts.
  5. Biking To Live went to the bike shop in June and picked up a new tube and CO2 cartridge.
  6. Weiland went to the bike shop in June and looked at clip on aero bars. However, I bought a dozen CamelBak Podium water bottles from Bonktown.
  7. Roadrash went to 2 bike shops in June and, in preparation for the Ride for Heart bought 2 new 700 x 23 Bontrager RaceXlite folding tires (Trek Toronto) and a new tube to replace one I popped while inflating (Spokes and Sports).


  1. Great list -- and new blogs to peruse!

    Don't forget to tag someone else!

  2. I did, but he chose not to continue it, so I guess it stops there. Sorry.

  3. Missed it there in the first paragraph.

    Ah well..that's the downfall of only tagging one person.

  4. We should ask Fat Lad if the rules allow you to tag someone else? I mean, there is still so much June left ... and it's kind of a fun game ... :-) I haven't bought anything in June, yet, and being tagged would just mean I have a reason to visit the LBS ... pick me, pick me ... LOL

  5. OK Groover... you're it then. Go for it.
