has come to an end.
thanks to jeremy, dan and the crew at speedgoat this weekend for getting my wife's moots together and for being my "host family" for the weekend.
while out at the goat, i got a chance to sneak in a road ride and a mountain ride.
one of my favorite "am i going good" tests is how i feel going up a sustained climb of over 20 minutes.
i believe lance used to test his fitness up a climb in france - i conduct the same "test" up the linn run climb behind speedgoat.
after that ride on saturday, got to do a short ride on the salsa mamasita.
while my ride time was very limited, a few things i did note:
1. very rigid side to side - felt like you could throw it around quite easily
2. back end was very light, getting over logs/bunny hopping was no issue at all
great bike, can't wait for the shipments to start rolling in.
then on sunday, the mountain demo's were the name of the game. in the above shot, dan is rolling through one of the more popular sections of the trails - wolfs rocks.
dan is rolling on the limited edition salsa el mariachi - this version is single speed only.
that's it - gotta roll. yard work done, now going to sneak in a ride.
