Nice ride today...
Solo at my "home turf" ride...
Not much snow/ice remaining after the recent rain and warmer temps here in CT. This bums me out big time because, thanks to your posts as well as other's, I was motivated to make my first set of Studs and get out on the ice (see post and pics from a day ago) - Ride was great.
Now I need two things:
1) a second set of wheels so I can interchange tires more easily.
2) a new chainstay - yes it cracked again - second time in three years for me. I know other's who completely gave up on the Jamis XLT due to the chainstay problems - I still love the way the bike rides. Maybe I need to convice wifey that it's time for a new mount - Ah but all the choices
keep posting the pics...
88 Keys and only 10 fingers....
Glad to see you're back at it...
Wow, I can't believe you broke 2 in that short period of time. I'd say its time to look for something stronger.

I've been liking seeing the neighbors trails in your pics. We got by with mud/snow type knobbies riding in Dutchess County NY today (909). My friend broke an XLT's chainstay and more recently twice on the seat/top tube gussett. Its not a light bike either, but he likes his.
