day off

Originally uploaded by solo_goat

whew, been a few hectic weeks as i am getting in some miles and building up and repairing bikes.

few melt downs last week trying to fix and repair bikes. never fails. at some point during a hectic week, my training bikes decide to act up. drives me nutz. now i'm back in business. just remember, 'when in doubt, switch it out." i should remember that more often.

this weekend - long recon mission at the shop and few other spots. should be good to get out on trails and not have to freak out about getting back into town for the joby job.

all parts in on the pivots - and dan the man is taking top secret blog pics as i type away at the shop.

have a good weekend, get in some miles, drink some good brew and coffee.

warning - when watching, prepare to have your mind blown away at 3:10 into it. unreal.

DSG 12 hour pre-ride

at the dsg and hoping the rain won't come.

pre-rode today and yesterday - course has new sections which are holding up good, but the existing trails are pretty soaked and holding lots of water from the week worth of rain dumpage.

lets just hope the rain stays away - potential rain coming in tonight.

write up coming sometime sunday - for now, time to rest.
