    I Guess It Is Race Worthy

    A while back I asked for people's feedback on racing their Id's

    Well I know first hand now. I entered my first race and won. Beginner Class 30-39. Guess I need to enter sport for the next race.

    That's me at the top.


    I was pretty proud of the old girl today.

    Congrats!

    Fun times.

    Racing hurts so good, it's a healthy addiction.
    {Principal Skinner} Hmm. Whoever did this is in very deep trouble.
    {Martin} And a sloppy speller too. The preferred spelling of 'wiener' is w - i - e - n - e - r, although 'e - i' is an acceptable ethnic variant.

    It has all XC parts on it, so not a stretch.

    Way to go, good job! Nothing better than finding out the answer for yourself.

    Interesting saddle you got there, what is that?

    It's a Tune Speedneedle. An ebay find. Part of my weight weenie quest.



    More comfortable then it looks.

    Thanks,

    I think I'm going to add endurance racing to my list of things to do this summer. I'm going to do a 12hr race this weekend. I think the Id will fit in perfect for this type of racing. However, I might be regreting that saddle choice after hour 10

    I was also thinking about changing the front fork from a 130 to 100 mm to bring the front end down and bit but I'm not sure what that will do to handeling.
