It is with a sad heart that I am retiring my avatar of Munchkinhead turned evil by Firstrax. That avatar had served me well, but it's time to move on.

In about a month, I'm going to ride my first fleche. The only thing that takes longer than a fleche is planning a fleche. During a fleche, teams ride from all directions to converge on common finishing point where, as I picture it, you have a big party and tell lies about the ride. You stick together as a team. You ride for 24 hours and at least 360k.

Obviously, the most important part of a ride like this is to pick guys you want to hang out with for that long. The second and third most important things are the name and the graphics.

I proposed the relatively obscure "Weasels Ripped My Fleche," but the team voted me off the island, and we settled on "Painted Fleche" given the propensities of a few of our gang.

The buttons (from Chain) and the shirts are most excellent.
