Taint a Scab
Still off the bike. Legs are feeling really spanky. I can just feel the "mo" ready to "jo" in 'em. Gonna save it all up for a 2-Niner ride on Saturday I hope. If not some "road head" (as KoKo calls it) will be just fine. Hard to imagine that Saturday I had a bonk so bad that I couldn't imagine pedaling another stroke now I'm so jazzed up I could bite the head off a chicken.
Question: What do people that don't ride do? Life is pretty lame with out cheeks in the saddle.
Gussied up the Dos Niner tonight and have it looking all pretty and ready to roll. Next up El Santo.
In the future if I switch back to a one bike Ti 29er life style I got it narrrowed down to the following two builders... DeSalvo or Quiring Cycles
Editors Note: Been thinking and just want to make sure you all know I only speak of Ti frames because of selling my Titus this year and missing it. No reflection on the Dos Niner or El Santo. Both are tits and alway find it hard deciding which frame to use! The ONLY problems I've found with them is that 1. El Santo is a bit heavier than I would like, but a lighter wheel set could help solve that and 2. Both Salsas have freaking SWEET paint jobs, but can scratch a dull easy. I know Rick is using some addded frame protection products on his, but I just so used to the abuse that a Ti frame can take, so it's dissapointing to see any paint wear, and lets face it doing endurance racing puts a LOT of abuse on a frame. As I've mention before, for me the 29er just FEELS right on the trail, so If I'm going down to one frame in the future it will be a 29er. Whether it be a Ti or the Dos with some spare lighter weight parts. I'm pretty sold on 29ers and just hope that more forks become available in the future (ahem, FOX??)
UPDATE, more bike lust: Check out this link over at mtbr.com of some of the UCI rigs. SSSSSSSSSSWEEEET stuff. Without a doubt the Cannonadle Scalpel is the fastest looking ride I've ever seen. Too bad to get a good XT/XTR build it'd run ya about $5K, can't even imagine what the one in the pict is worth. Yikes!
Time for some grub.
