6 February 2007 - 1:39Stash Off!
We are now plugged into an Arctic snap for a while. The above picture was actually taken on my first Febuary bike ride, with the temps hovering around 25°, the day before the temperature plummeted. I took the Karate Monkey out for a spin around the block, and was completely suprised at how well the Nanoraptor tires I have on there did in snow. Tire pressure was low, not on purpose, but we won’t say neglect either. Part of my trip took me on a road that is closed in the winter. There were lots of animal tracks, XC ski tracks and some snowshoes, but the snow was pretty firm which made for a rough ride. There was minimal wheel spin, I did not have to stop or re-start the ride at any time. I was impressed.
As I mentioned before, it doesn’t take much to amuse us when it’s -10° outside.
Ideas like the “Stash Off” are born.
And so here are the before and after pictures.
I think Scott’s beard was better to begin with, and the most common emotion his new facial hair formation stirs up is fear.
Tell me what you think.
