When I don't ride my bike, I get pretty grumpy.
When I get pretty grumpy, I end up pursuing my other intrests of art, programming, music and web trickery such as this website. While highly productive in a depressed state, stoically racing my bike seems a helluva' lot simpler.
It's quite akward to write about yourself on the internet. It like penning some pathetic personal ad. And I am in no way shape-or-form pathetic, no sir, not one bit. So, all the other stuff is going to be none of your god-damned business.
Properly spoken as "Fifty-three Eleven," (drop the "x") it stands for the common highest gear ratio found on road bikes. For example, "He sprinted to across the finish line in his 53x11!" or "Pantani shifted down to 53x11 and destroyed them on the climb".
