Default The Vices!

What are you guys addicted to? Or maybe not even addicted. Something besides drums that you just love too much to quit?

For starters, I'm a beer nerd, especially when it comes to Stouts, dark ales, and just about any lager. I prefer craft brews like Flying Dog, Oscar Blues, New Belgium is probably my favorite - I worship their 1554, and about all their Lips of Faith beers. And of course, I like some commercial stuff like Sam Adams, and George Killian.

I'm also big on food. If I wasn't such an active cat, I think I'd weigh four-hundred pounds. I mean, I'm no small fry as it is, but the way I put it away, I'd be huge. I dig fast food, but I also love pizza, authentic Chinese, Italian, Mexican, or the simple stuff like fried chicken. I worship good barbecue. I'm convinced I could live off barbecue and die of a heart attack at 35 with a smile on face.

Chardonay, jalapeno flavored potato chips, and video games. My every evening contains at least 2 of those things.

Ice cream (usually some variation of chocolate or mocha); my iPad (don't leave home without it) and if I told you anything else I'd be violating my 5th amendment right to not incriminate myself :)

Coffee. And it's not just a figurative addiction.

I spent my money on fast cars, booze and women.

The rest I squandered.

Bicycles.

Non-cyclists would say that owning three bikes is a problem.

Cyclists know about n+1, or S-1.

Too many to mention, but at least these days they're all legal..........well, most of the time.

I've decided, in reality I give up nothing. I just transfer from one vice to another.

For sure. The roadie, the mtb AND the fixie........and everyone knows the fixie is little more than a feeble attempt to stave off appearing old!! :-)

Something besides drums? Buying CD's is at the top in tandem with spending an hour or two per day listening to them. Beer - in particular trying micro beer from all over the place. Lastly, I can't live without coffee on a daily basis.

Close!

Instead of fixie I built a cyclo-cross style bike last year to use for my bike commute days. Too hilly where I am for a fixie, and I don't usually sport an ironic beard.

The build project was fun - I wanted Campagnolo and I wanted disc brakes, which meant I had to build my own wheels. The first kerb I jumped off was an exciting moment!
