Said goodbye to Titus as the deal went down at the "Gay Fish" out on Rt. 51. The "gay fish" is a what I call this one restaurant out on 51 that's painted completely pink and has a big fish on the sign.
Anyhoo, Some kat named Kevin bought it. Real nice dude. Owns a Santa Cruz Blur that he hates due to shock issues etc., and wanted to return to the hard tail. He'll be able to give Titus what I never could..... Full XTR and a Chris King Head Set.
It will be hard having Titus local. Riding the same trails as me with a different engine. If I run into them it will be like seeing an ex-girl friend out with her new boyfriend. All the questions in my mind... "Is he a better rider than me? Does he clean the drive train more?" etc., etc.,
I had some great rides on Titus. Team 24s, My first Solo 24, riding at 11,000' in the mountains of Colorado, mmmmmmemories.
Acutally it wasn't that hard selling knowing I'll be getting something brand new. Not like I was selling it to pay the mortgage or for a hit of crack..... (yet)
I am suffering a bit from bike withdrawal. El Santo is now out somewhere in the weirdness that is Kansas (a state that can break even the strongest of cross country travelers, like Wifey). The Titus is gone and my road bike is over Tom's getting some new rings, cables etc. installed. All I have is my Jamis Booger (my old Jamis Nova CX bike that I have on my trainer).
So it looks as it my chamois will be on Booger today. Watchnig some Roubaix and iPoding.
Hope all are having a good weekend. Until next time this is Wild America.
