well, the snow seems to be gone and temps are up a bit to about 50ºF so I actually got out to spin around downtown on my coffee bike. Feels good, even breaking my ass in

Finally got back out on two wheels today. Good weather, a little wind but not bad. We decided to try a harder trail this time. No pictures because I brainfarted on the camera. Awesome singletrack. We both almost ate it a few times. I came around a corner a little too fast and almost launched myself down into a nice rocky wash. I would have be hurt bad, it was about a 10 foot drop into rocks. The gearing on my Monocog did great on all but the steeper rocky climbs. We did three miles which isn't much but it was fun singletrack with a bunch of climbing. I promise to take pictures next time.

Boulder Velodrome

AFTER

*sorry if I seem like I am 'gloating' but I don't have many people I can share this with... and even fewer that ride in the Velodrome!! I had a crowd of people cheering for me today which made me try even harder.

Playz, Hi!

I've been following. CONGRATULATIONS!!! That's outstanding!

With that time on a 142 meter track I'm pretty sure your speed was 35.5 miles an hour! You rock!

You've been doing the mileage and hours of riding, learned the technique, and built up your ferocity to win. Track record, girl, you're the one that holds it, again, Congratulations!

I'm excited for you!



Liz

I had it kicking around and it fit-it's got a couple of good parts on it, like the Record track cranks in 165, the King headset, Flite saddle, track bars and a flask cage for my Surly flask. heh heh. I just put on a bigger cog so it's actually pretty good for getting around on the hills we have here, the brake is a must here too.
