I Think I am in Love

Installed some new bits on the single speed today and they look amazing. Silver set-back Thomson Masterpiece seatpost, silver Thomson Elite X4 stem, and a Salsa 17 deg Al handlebar. Next up is a King headset and some lightweight rotors as well as a tubeless setup. I should be able to get this SS 29er under 20lbs without resorting to non-functioning light weight tires.

A Beautiful Day and Good Training

First thing, today was perfect as weather conditions are concerned. Sunny, a light breeze, not a cloud and temps in the mid 60's. I can't ask for better weather.

Training is going smooth, spending plenty of time in all three disciplines. Rode Leatherwood today for 2.5 hours. If anyone locally is reading this, go ride Leatherwood. I've never seen this trail system in better shape than it was today. Completely dry. I'm planning to ride road tomorrow but I may make the trip back to ES because I had such a good ride today.
