Slammed lately… still have some final items to move into the new place but we’ve been somewhat settled for almost 2 weeks now. Good thing because work has been busy busy lately. Been in need of this button that Jennifer (one of the teachers) brought me back from Gruene:
Luckily the 2nd fridge is getting stocked with the essentials:
Been getting the bikes ready lately.. the Avent is transforming more into 4x/slalom mode as I’m planning on racing in CO some over the Summer. Seems better than 100degree 8 hours in the sun to race 2 laps BMX State racing (although I’m sure I’ll make a couple of those… especially if the Florence track actually gets started).
Hardtail has knobbier tires back on it and the front brake is going on this week. Need to look at changing shifters to something I can use thumb only as my right wrist is still jacked and upshifting with the index finger sucks.
The felt is getting more changes as it’s quickly becoming an awesome all around ride… going to put my XT 180s on it since i’m running 1×9 and that may help with mashing the hills some. Need to decide on what rear tire I’m going to through on there. Got a 2.0 fast fred on there right now since I had a sidewall tear and needed something fast to ride at Reveille Ranch. Likely putting a 2.35 single ply Minion on there but may go back to a single ply 2.1 Kenda SB8 or try and beef it up with an old school dual ply DH casing 2.35 Lopes Bling. All depends on if I decide to stay tubeless with the Stans or go back to tubes.
One of the best investments ever in all of my bike parts is sitting on the Felt now. Riding all mountain type stuff, this thing comes into constant use.
