While we're the proud owners of two entry-level Trek road bikes (Brandon's and mine, Bob (bucket o' bolts)), we are not proud to say we're not the best when it comes to bike maintenance. This is definitely something that we would like to remedy here coming up, but for now, we do what little we can (essentially, lubing up a chain).
Well, it recently came time for Brandon to replace his grip tape as it was getting worn and chewed up. He ripped off all his old stuff and picked up "melon bubble" grip tape - a delightful lime green. The following sequence of pictures show Brandon attempting (and succeeding!) in retaping his handlebars.

"Hey look, I think I've got it!"
One side done!
Starting side two.

Taping things off.
Once done, it was time for Brandon to hop on Skippy for a little while. We checked out early Troy (Spinervals 1.0) from the library, so Brandon decided to join Troy in all his 80s/early-90s glory.
Remember, just because a Spinervals DVD may have a lower number, it does NOT mean it is easier. Unless it's maybe Spinervals 101: Intro to Troy's Worlds of Hell (not actual name). Still, Coach Troy's fluffy hair is amusing.
Once again, death by Skippy (and Coach Troy).
