I can safely say I am very glad that the cold snap is over. It’s pretty bad when 16° feels like a heat wave. Soon it will be a much different story weather-wise for us. It’s looking like the high 70s this coming weekend for SSAZ09.
I managed to keep warm by franticly packing up our bikes to send out to AZ. In a moment of clarity, I took the time to instal a new Reba Team on my bike. For my first couple of rides of 09, I’m going for comfort. Plus I was told I would have a much better time with a suspension fork. This is a good opportunity for me to see first hand if this new Reba is all its cracked up to be. I chose the WTB WW LT for tires, Mandy is going to check out the Nanoraptors. Man, I wish they’d make that tire in a 2.4!
I’ve been ferociously building wheels over the last couple of days. It’s amazes me that I am about as busy as I can be in January. I’ve been making the big push to get as much out the door as I can before I split to Tucson. I’ve also been working on a couple of custom bike builds, one of which will be a very sharp looking Vassago Bandersnatch. For anyone shopping for one of these, the next batch is about a month away, and I am taking preorders. This one is Blood Red, with a gold King headset. All King headsets come with their new graphic treatment “sotto voce”, basically, meaning the graphic is tonal instead of contrasting. I like it.
The good news, is that my little sojourn out west should not disrupt things too much. Besides our riding adventures, I should have some new products to tell you all about when I return.
