A look at March 2011:
Race Report: ICUP #1 Redrock Rampage.
Wherein I choose the gym over skiing. A trend that continues.
My book is nearly finished. In fact, it is very close now. A little more proofreading and layout work is all that is left.
Daren and I conquered the Crow’s Foot.
An Open Letter to Gro Promotions.
And some of my favorite posts from around the web:
Fatty’s Inferno . Read all 5 parts, the payoff is brilliant.
Jeff Higham’s True Grit 50 report.
Dave and Lynda bikepack the Black Canyon Trail.
29er vs. 26er. Still?

The 26er v. 29er article is spot-on in its analysis. The debate still rages for multiple reasons, which are well articulated in that article.

True. I think that the debate has (mostly) moved on from the early days of “kids bikes” vs. “grown up bikes”. I switched to a 26er FS bike last year, and really liked it. But I switched back to a 29er HT because it fit my needs better. Both were great bikes. FS and 29ers are still not a great combo, but neither are 26ers and HT’s.
