    How was your ride ?

    Mine was kind of weird today... still build my new trail bike and had to use it... without seatpost/saddle, derailleurs, rear brake and 3x8 set up... I tighten the chain the best I could, but self-shifted a couple times... standing up for the whole ride, avoiding putting too much tension on the chain, only front v-brake...

    ...for 7 miles of urban roads...

    It felt kind of fun, but 2 minutes after I arrived and got off the bike, I started to feel the pain I think I will take it relax tonight

    How was yours ?

    Did you ever have one of those days where you felt in form and just wanted to dial in to some primo singletrack to hit the reset button before the workweek begins? Went out & did about 2,900 feet of climbing before bombing back down fast enough to have some "oh oh" moments.
    Got the tired, good hurt going on now, and i'm ready for Monday.

    Strayed from my normal morning ride and did an evening ride. The 98* temps reminded me why I ride in the morning. Cleaning spider webs off the trail in the early AM is'nt so bad.
