it is quite beautiful in gleaming white. i have about 3/4 the parts for it. i am missing a front fork, so the f29 off of the vassago will go on until i can get a carbon lefty for it. missing cranks and pedals as well along with a few nick knacks.
i will post a detailed list as soon as i can get ahold of what i have to put on it.
the second is a jenson usa aluminum frame from a follower on this blog. kurt contacted me and said he had a frame laying around and i could have it to turn into a single speed. thanks and yes i took it.
i have all the parts to build this up cept for a rear cog spacers and tensioner. those parts came in today and i will take it out for a little spin tomorrow.
got over to lambert park in alpine to put in four laps on the race course. the shake out lap isn't dug out, but the rest is ridable.
had to pump up the tires to 30 psi to get them to grip. seems like the snow conditions vary alot on the course. in the soft the harder tires cut thru to the harder snow or dirt and grip good!!
in the harder snow no problem. the skinnier the better. you will need to slice thru.
i tried fatter tires on the 29er and they just floated and had me all over the trail. could not get any bite on the up hills and the downhills had me off the trail most of the time.
with such a heavy strength and core last couple of weeks, i have been tapering down alot for the "frozen hog" race on sat.
standard pose for the camara. my dog has this look down pat.
another happy shot from a husky that likes to run in the snow.
such a cutie!...
so i have been riding to work and getting some good strong intervals in big gears. couple that with some hill sprints pushing the bike i feel somewhat ready for frozen hog. i mean it is the off season and fitness is not that high yet.
