i got a ride in this morning on the trails. this was unplanned cuz i figured the trails were going to be to wet for the next couple of days. however, all the rain in the forcast somehow missed my little world. so ted and i got about an hour and a half in at s.m. park. trails were ideal.
posted a couple of pics of my bike. it sure was dialed in for the 3hr spoke/pony race this past saturday at landahl park. the experiment with the 1x9 gearing is o longer an experiment. I Loved It! 34t up front with an 11x32 in the back was just fine. with that 11 ring in back, i have to get up to 29-30mph to even come close to spinning out. and even 3 hrs into the race, i never felt like i needed an easier gear. now i just need to figure out how to set up a 2x9 on it when ted and i get a few days in Crested Butte, Co this July.
my wife sure was happy with me this past week. we knocked out the painting of the baby's room and set up the crib as well. i think she thought i might string that project out a couple of weeks. anyway, one of the pics is of the new room with pait and crib. and the last pic is of my lovely wife heather and the brittany is 'landis'.
the other pic is bud ted meeting up with me this morning at the trailhead.
