Took the Evening Off.

Yesterday the last major piece of the puzzle that is my new race bike for next year came in down at the bike shop so I took the night off riding to finish it up. It's been a fun couple months shopping for parts, waiting for the UPS and FedEx truck, installing, tweaking, adjusting. It took me back to the days of taking my bike completely apart between practically every race to repaint the frame. I'd show up at the starting line and the regulars would just look and shake their heads. "You have time to train doing that?"

I'll be taking her out on her maiden voyage Saturday probably and riding every day next week before her debut at our Thursday night group ride. Stay tuned for a full report on how she rides, component choice breakdown, review and pics.

Hey JB.

I thought the build was going to continue on into the winter months?

Can't wait to see the beast!

Hey Chrispy, why don't you drive down Friday Night? We'll head down to DC for the race and watch the pros go at it in Pennsylvania Avenue. Should be fun. Van de Velde is even gonna be riding.

If I didn't have anything planned this weekend, I would jump at it. I'm headed to New Orleans.

Bah, New Orleans. Oh well, have fun anyway.
