Wow, the last couple of days have been incredibly busy at the shop. All it takes is a couple of nice days in a row to bring all the clunkers out of the woodwork.
Having your internet connection at the shop go south on you doesn’t help any either.
Well, the repair rack is full, internet is fixed, shop is cleaned up again, and now I can post about a few things that we did at the shop this weekend.
Late last week, Ponte received his Waltworks single speed. He had it custom built this winter, around a non suspension corrected fork. Should be a razor quick ride. Build quality is amazing, finish work is beautiful, and the color has to be seen to be believed. Pictures don’t do it justice.
Another RIP found a new home. This one built with our Bike29 Royale Wheelset in blue on Salsa Delgado Race rims, Reba fork, X9 drivetrain w/ XT cranks, and all the usual Thomson and WTB accouterments.
On the ride side of things, the weather was so good this weekend, that I rode Kermit four days in a row. With the trails still snowbound, I was relegated to cruising the back roads. Fortunately, there are a lot of hills here, so each day I managed to get a solid workout in.
I have a couple of interesting component changes on Kermit to talk about in an upcoming post.
The jersey design has been finalized, and the window to order has closed. I’m really excited to see the finished product. Thanks again to all that helped shape it’s design.
