solo



was the theme of the weekend as i hit up two solo rides - feels great to be back outside again as the weather and my flu have both cleared up for a bit.

el mariachi is riding great after some readjusting of the saddle as somehow i got the measurements off.

couple of recomendations if you are thinking about one - double check the eccentric a few times as it loosened up on me and maybe switch out to some lighter tires as the stock tires weigh a ton.

heat wave is hitting ohio tomorrow morning - shooting up to a incredible 58 degrees, and then dumping rain later in the day. may be a good day for you ohio riders to call in with "morning sickness"...

Hey Ernesto,

Didn't know you lived in Ohio. If you're looking for someone to train with, you can always come up to MI for the weekend. Shoot me an email... Simonster

Wow, that is a helluva ride, especially with all the snow on the ground. How long does a ride like that take ya?

...and after monday, how about this shit storm. I can't even identify this kind of precipitation. it's rain that accumulates on the ground, or snow that hurts when it hits you. This'll be great for training.

ride up past the polo fields was a little over 5 hours - was on el mariachi with about 40 pounds in the tires.

ya - this weather is total sucking. seems like we've had less snow this year, but the weather has been worse. at least last year it seemed like i could get out mid-week...
