Agent Orange Reporting for Duty

Meet Agent Orange. As in the punk rock band, Agent Orange. As in "You've heard of Agent Orange? That was my code name. That's what they called me. Agent Orange. I was all over that place." As in, I am not in the habit of naming inanimate objects, but I now own an orange mountain bike, and Agent Orange seems to fit. Basically, you are looking at a photo of my stimulus money. I bought a new mountain bike, a Jamis Durango A1. It's a 29'er (if that means absolutely nothing to you, standard, traditional mountain bikes are equipped with 26.5 inch wheels. A few years ago, the industry started designing and making mountain bikes with 29 inch wheels. Essentially, there's more tire rolling along, resulting in a more efficient pedal stroke.) I've wanted a 29'er for awhile now, and I finally own one. And Jamis makes really good bikes! I put a pair of Crank Brothers Mallet pedals on it, and have a pair of Cidi mountain bike shoes on the way via FedEx. Oh, and I also bought five blunts for $55 for Toko de Mayo at my friendly neighborhood pot shop!

Sadly, I ordered a helmet on the Internet. Only two colors were available, and I ordered a blue one because it was darker. Now, I realized after the fact, that I'm going to be riding around Denver on an orange bike wearing a blue helmet, looking like I'm a Broncos fan. Yuck.
