Despite winter's unrelenting grip, it does actually feel slightly spring like. We received at least another foot of wet snow yesterday, but this morning's temperatures are well into the 30s. Once the sun crept over the Worcester Range, it really warmed up. The snow is wet and heavy and melting fast, but the snowbanks are still 3 feet tall and higher. I spent about an hour and a half shoveling already today. Hard work, but it beats having the deck fall off the house under the weight of 2 tons of snow. While I was taking a break out there, enjoying the quiet, I noticed it wasn't so quiet after all. The birds were making a racket. It sounded like spring. Music to my ears.
I was pleasantly surprised yesterday when I arrived at the shop and found that Brown Santa had delivered a set of custom Industry 9 Single Speed wheels. I love these wheels. This is the first time I have almost been torn away from my old stand by, the Bike 29 Royale.
This particular wheelset has custom color blue hubs laced to the Stan's Arch rims with silver spokes. A very tricked out package.
