TJ hustle

One of the drawbacks of doing this TJ dentista thing,
is the lack of communication.
Most Mexicans run on an antiquated form of cellphone,
the glorified walkie-talkie called Nextel.
It's a cheap, immediate and easy way to talk to people,
but that's not the American way.

Since there's no international plan on our Verizon service,
and 90% of my cell phone conversations are text-based,
there is limited telephone interaction with our Dentista.

That being said,
what was supposed to be my 2nd to last dental visit,
turned out to be a great day to go mountain biking!

In the past I have hinted on how to blend in with the locals,
and the Breezer Thunder has been listening.
A couple key meki-traits are an almost flat rear tire,
and a loud clunky bottom bracket that sounds like it will grenade at any moment.
We had this part covered!
Seriously 3 out of 4 mexican bicyclists fall into this category.
The Pemex stations have free air so I had to regress.

A couple of other TJ bicyclist details,
are seat posts bottomed out so it looks like they're riding a kids bike,
and derailleurs permanently stuck on the easiest gear.
Now this may sound like a bit of chit-talking and maybe it is,
but I had over a half-hour to people watch while hoping the dentista would come.
Unfortunately I wasn't in the picture taking mood!
wheel sucker

The uphill trail ride back was expectedly great.
I really need to get a new bottom bracket!
This gaping wheel sucker is smack dab in the middle of the trail.
It's definitely bunny-hoppable,
but this crack has taken out plenty of unsuspecting bicyclists.
overflow waterfall

Here is the culprit.
Further up the hill,
all the runoff from this drainage waterfall feeds that crack.
I bet this thing is a river when it's raining.
bacardi añejo

Couldn't resist the $10 liter of bacardi!
Yep gotta make lemonade out of those lemons.
