The idea is real simple: just mount the existing rollers on wheels so they can roll freely forwards and backwards, then attach some kind of bungee strap or other spring to return the rollers to center after they move. Here's what mine consisted of:

Yep, thats whats left of a blister that at one time covered a good portion of the inside of my right foot! Nice and leathery now.

Training with my wife has been great and very rewarding. We're both getting into pretty good shape and feeling good. About a month ago we ran a fun-run together and for the first time ever I beat her in a 10k. Some people may not think it's a big deal to beat a girl, but you have to understand, in a distance running race she's a really fast girl. This weekend we're gonna be doing the Melba 10k and I think she might want some revenge. She smashed me in this race last year, so we'll see how it pans out.

I'm too lazy to go into the other room and snap a photo of the actual thing right now, so here's the shot from Trek's web site instead. True it's not mirror polished from head to toe like my last bike but hey, we all have to make sacrifices these days right? I've had the bike for nearly a month I think and it has been awsome. Way lighter, way smoother and handles just as nice as the shinny brick I've ridden for the last few years.
Next week I'll get to take the new rig out and see how it likes racing when I venture back to Boise to race the Birds of Prey RR. With th weather so nasty here and no one to get out and ride with, my training has suffered for sure, so my race goals are pretty basic (like hang with the pack long enough to say hi to a few bike pals and then pound myself into submission chasing the tail end of the group).

Here's a short sample of the lyrics (as much as I could type before realizing I'm too slow of a typer to keep up):
Round and round forever it seems
one among the field with a glorious dream, (ohooouuohohoh)
the heat is on gotta greak away,
Push it to the limit
finish line dead ahead
stretchin, stretchin out the gap, gap, gap!
Hammer it out
be a champion
Hammer it out!
