Ride Inspired

Posted by on Jan 10, 2007 in Uncategorized | No Comments

Like a kid on Christmas morning, I opened my new Van Dessel frames last night. First Impression? Super light and very attractive. I can’t wait to get them built up and out on the dirt. The two models I have are the Jersey Devil HT and the Ramble Tamble SS. To go along withthe SS I also ordered a White Bros. carbon rigid fork. Training this year on the SS is going to be pure painful bliss. And training includes XC races….one might say I am going to try the SS class in the Intermountain Cup because I don’t have the legs to hang with the 30-39 experts. They’d be right.

My profile page is up at Van Dessel.com now. Check it out here.

The Jersey Devil will have its debut race down at OP in February. The last time I got a new bike I won the first race I rode it in–the 24 Hours of Soldier Hollow. I will let that thought motivate you, and me for the next 6 weeks. 😀

    Hot! That must be sensory overload to get TWO new frames at the same time. I especially like the metallic rootbeer with white accents.

    Man those look nice. Can’t wait to see them at OP. It’s coming up fast so you better get them built up! 🙂

    Adam great to see another 29er guy racing for VDS. Hope to run into you at some point in the near future. It looks like you and I are running similar bikes ramble tamble and a jersey devil, mine FS for 2007. I see you got the bug to run a carbon front end as well. Talk to you soon.

    Hey Adam,
    Not sure if you remember me from OHS. I now run an online website selling outdoor socks. I was going to email you but couldn’t find it on your site. I can send you some free biking socks if your interested. Go to my contact page and email me. Nice to see you’re still tearing up trails.

    Where are the pics of the complete bikes??? You can’t just post pics of frames and then make us wait for a week for the complete build. 🙂
