2 weeks until the Pisgah MTB Stage race. Can't wait. I'm almost finished with my training, just a couple more peppy rides then some relaxing ones. I'm enjoying the chill rides more and more. Maybe its age, or maybe I've had my fill. I still like to go fast, maybe I have proven myself to myself and know what I can do. I won't stop training though, I still want to see what I can do and go on adventures!
This bike is amazingly smooth and fast. It's wheelbase is a bit longer than the Siren 55 that I use for racing, so it took a few minutes to get used to. I love this bike more each time I ride it. I decided that I want to set it up with a suspension fork so I'm shopping around for one. 80-100 mil ought to do the trick. Then after some chain suck, I got home and measured the chain....oops, looks like I need a new chain, which means chainrings and cassettes too. Dang it. The fork might have to wait.
