SpeedyChix spotted in sunny AZ

8o Degrees and Sunny.
Need I say more?
Given how long this is taking to upload don't plan on more news until I get to a fast connection.

But is SURE is good to be where the sun shines, arm warmers take the chill off, riding is sweet and the eating every bit as good.


Still Alive

Hi, Not much going on besides lots of work. Trying to hold on to some fitness with short rides on the trainer. Getting close to having four or five days to do some solid base miles.

Racing CX into mid-December finds me wanting to be off the bike in January or having a funk in February. Maybe next winter I'll try something a bit different once CX season ends.

The Badger is bugging me for a ride. Maybe a night ride this week if I can caught up a bit!


Badger Cycles 29er!

WoooHooo, it's built. So even if I'm lame and didn't ride outside I DID finish building up this filet brazed beauty.

Frame is custom with a short top tube (bit of a challenge for smaller 29 frames), a wheelbase that is as snug as the 26 full sus, light steel tubeset that should have a nice snap to it and some sparkling paint.

I've wanted a painted steel bike again for a time and what better way to do it up.

The balance of the bike is designed around a women's build and to have quick xc trail manners.

Just as I finish building it we get a day of cold rain and another day of wet snow. A real ride report will be coming...when the weather decides to freeze things or clear up.


Shizzling Drizzle Mist

What's with this weather? It's foggy making road riding a deathwish and the wet around here means the trail is total mud. Trainer time.....


Winding Up

For a good weekend of riding. Looking forward to getting in some long rides in. Work has decimated my training the past couple of weeks. Sleep will be good too.

Been working on a cool new bike project. Might be ready to roll this weekend.

Last weekend I did get in a fun run in the rain. Best part of it was I was done before it got light out so I couldn't really tell how dreary the day was!
