…is killing me. I *should* have my new 29er Thursday. My evening is all booked though. I should say that my wife’s evening is booked, which means I’ll have to stay home with the kiddies. That is fine. I like staying home with the kids. But on the first day that I have a new […]

Bleh…

…is pretty much how I felt today. I wanted to get in a ride, but the thought of another loop on the same route I do so often on the road bike was not encouraging. I had a nasty headache after work today as well. So I took the rest day and started making a […]

Karl Etzel, founder of Ride424.com recently published an article on the subject of race fees. Specifically race fees and 24 hour events.

I’ve been really seriously considering making the move to a 29er hardtail. After my rear shock went kaputz on me last night, I decided it was time. So I ordered an ’06 Gary Fisher X-Calibur. How could I resist that shine?!? I am going to swap out some parts off my fuel here and there, […]
