Awaiting Trial

He spent part of the evening in the basement working on it. All that needs to be done is a chain and chain ring. That and the snow to melt. 60 days until the trails will no longer be snow-covered.

Stan's Arch Wheels

The Speedgoat wheels arrived earlier this week. Some things that make them special--they are not quick release, the company didn't cheap out on the rim tape that they sent, they sent along extra spokes, and the wheels are white, the hubs are Surly disc. For some reason I have a difficult time when I'm having conversations about wheels and tires and interchange the words. I know what a wheel is and what a tire is but flip them around often. Maxxis Ignitor tires were hard to seat(he said).

The Vassago Jabberwocky frame will be delivered on Friday. The wheels arrived yesterday from SpeedGoat. The (slow, I hope) build begins.

Valentine's day for a Biker

2 boxes of CTC (Cinnamon Toast Crunch)
Mountain Bike Action magazine and
BIKE Magazine's 2010 Buyers Guide (I think it is actually called THE BIBLE)
-he says it's mostly 26-inch full suspension bikes by Trek and Specialized.

Currently: eagerly waiting for the arrival of a Vassago Army Green 29-inch steel singlespeed.

Winter Riding

He's been riding the trails north of town near Mead Pond. The snow, packed down by hikers and snowshoers, has been decent for winter riding. Windproof gloves, scullcap, windproof pants and jacket, and shoe covers keep him warm. He's using my wheels while he waits for his to be built at Speedgoat.
