First time on the rollers for over 6 months. Damn they suck I did a paltry 10 miles and I struggled to do that.

It's too soon for the rollers! Don't you have the time to get a ride in? I did 56 sunday. And yes they do suck!

102* I stayed inside instead of cleaning my bike some more. I've been told that my chain protector is lame so I need to remove it.

Ordered my tires and tubes though!

I pulled the trainer out of the basement on Sunday. The weather wasn't that bad, but it wasn't nice either, and I wanted to play around with cleat position on one foot to see if I could resolve some knee discomfort. Easier to do that with the trainer.

Man, I forgot how much I hate that thing.

I busted my leg dirt biking the other weekend and today I was really jonesing for a ride as I haven't ridden for a bit and of course it was pissing it down

Meant to be better tomorrow so I am hoping to get out then.

I've only been to interbike in Philly. The 'small' show. That wore me right out.

That was 94/95 and I still have the pair of free socks I got from D-feet. Wear em semi-often too!

I remember bike shows in Atlantic City, free buffet, strippers roam the show floors and free lap dance coupons.

Ya know, if I'd actually go out and learn something about mountain biking, that climb over the rocks would terrify me alot less.

Did my first REAL cyclocross session today on the old hardtail M/B.
(With some who ride the various local series')

Holy crap that's some work.


I'm gonna put the knobbies back on that bike and do it again next Wed.

I noticed a weight difference but is there anything else? I'm used to folding.
I have the same frame in a 21". Anything over 2.1 will buzz your chain stays.

So, I fixed this:



With these:



The Mavics are way stiffer than the WTB LaserDiscs that were on the bike.

Get the new wheels for the Anthem, Monday. Yesterday, I get a phone call that the Stumpjumper came in. So, off to a distant shop to pick that up. It's a '11 Specialized Stumpjumper FSR Expert 29er.

Compared to the Anthem, it looks and feels huge. It's definitely beasty.



SRAM 2X10 drivetrain. The FD is mounted to the chainstay, so that it moves with the suspension; no derailleur rub during compression/extension. The bash guard is machined CF; looks gorgeous, as do the crankarms. The Eggbeater 3 pedals are perfect, with their blue anodized parts.



There is tons of detailing; like the blue anodized bits and braided Jagwire cabling.



Command Post seatpost offers three different heights with a push of a bar-mounted lever. It can be run bottomed-out for DH bombing, in the middle for technical stuff, or all the way up for high-speed flatwork.


The lever to the left is the seatpost adjustment.


More detailing in the pivot bolts.


Just a really nice parts mix with XO RD, X7 FD, and X9 levers. The stuff works so nice.


I'm taking both bikes to a local trail, tomorrow. It'll be interesting to directly compare them. I've still got some setup work to do on the SJ, though. Then, the Anthem will be off to its new owner.

Cool bike, I like Mavac wheels they are stiff and strong,I've got em on my road bike. No broken spokes wheel stays true. Good quality stuff. I've heard from the local 29er guys that WTB wheels aren't as strong as many other wheelsets out there.They mostly trade them out as soom as they buy the bike.
