I think the same thing when I hear the words Powell or New Albany. Totally different 20 years ago.

New Albany is nothing like Dublin. I don't even like going into the bank there because they look at me like I'm the help.....

I'm not a big fan of asphalt, but I do like to go out and pretend I know what I'm doing. I won't risk crashing the Transalp but I've tossed the 640 into a ditch or two

A couple B class enduro riders even let me by in the last trail section because they were slowing me down. I could see that a lot of guys were totally spent by then. It would have been really interesting if we would have gotten any significant rain.

I think those were all enduro riders too. I fell over so many times I lost track. I got stuck a few times too but just had to hop off and push a little to get going again. I fell over on a double log crossing where the logs were only about 2 feet apart and bruised my left leg in a couple of places. That's the worse of my injuries. I'm just sore everywhere else.

I washed the bike last night because of not getting home until late on Sunday and noticed that my rear rim has a pretty good sized dent in it. Not sure how that happened. I don't remember hitting anything hard except log crossings. I was running 10 PSI in both tires to start with. I have a slow leak in the front so it was probably less than 10 by the time I finished. My front was already dented from Colorado trip last summer.

Anyone want to do a little bike ride? Preferably thurs. or fri. during the day (I have to be home around dinner time)... Or Sunday.

I've got some knobbies to throw on, but I want to make it worth my while, so Perry, or ive got a hard tar hallow loop that's pretty excellent, or Wayne.
