May I Present: Mr. Richard Cranium
Man, I've been kind of a dick the past couple days. Not sure what's up. I think the cold, lack of outside exercise and all this eBaying crap is bringing me down. I mean I'm selling some jerseys over on the Bay and they have been getting mad hits. Used clothing = response, Used titanium = no response. Whatever. Just tired of winter and want to get outside without loosing my toes. In due time, in due time.
I was reviewing my training over on TrainingPeaks.com and what-a-ya know, this is a rest week. So I did an hour on the trainer with some high cadence, low resistence speed work. Like to get over to Tom's this week to get some TLC on the road bike.
My plans for Titus and the Dos Niner are as follows, I'm selling (hopefully) the Frame and Fork and keeping a bunch of parts, then uprading to full XT 9 speed, with Rock Shox Reba 29er sans remote lock out and Salsa Delgado Cross/XT wheelset. Why the Cross instead of the new 29er Delgado you ask? Well, I'd like to maybe throw on some narrower tires and maybe a rigid fork come fall and do some CX races with the Dos Niner and the new Delgado rims are too wide for CX tires. Dropped a line to Salsa and they assured me that the Cross rim would be the way to go. I'd like to get 36 spokes if possible to stiffin it up, but If not the 32 will do. Would like to have gotten some lighter hubs, but don't think I can do it in this year's budget.
Props to my three time pit neighbor J.B. for getting it done this weekend. Dude rode nearly 400 miles in 24 hours. Way to go man!
Wonder how D.K. is doing now that he ACTUALLY has a job. J.H.C.!!!
That's all I got. Rest day tomorrow with the B-Man.
