The weekend went by pretty quickly. Saturday consisted of helping Asheville CX set-up, manage, and tear down some really fast and hot races.
Sunday was the planned shakedown cruise of the Siren Rocketship 55 SL. With knew cables and chain, I was ready to rock. The cassette however was not ready to rock. It seemed it was more into skipping. I had met up with Dawn and told her to go ahead and leave me, because I was not going anywhere fast. I did figure out that I could ride some of the steady gravel climbs without too much problem, so I still got some time in the saddle.
After the ride, I sat at Starbucks, sipping some coffee until Liberty Bikes opened and I splurged on a new cassette.
Monday will be shakedown cruise #2.
