Still here I've been really busy/lazy lately. I pulled a Paddy and tried to stay away from the "time waster" as much as possible. But, here I am. So, what's new? Well I'm moving to Fargo at the end of the month. Bruce Furness is no longer Mayor, so it's safe for me to move down there now : ) Anyway, I can't wait. I'm not sure what I'm going to do for work yet, but hopefully something will pop up. Not much new on the biking front. Went for a ride with Sears and Squez on Sunday. We rode out to the TR sunday night ride, rode the ride, then rode home. About 55 miles of fun. Sears wanted to make it a challenge and rode his Monocog 29er fixed. He's an animal on that bike. No log jump can stop him. It really is unbelievable! Watch out at Nine Mile : ) Other than that I haven't been riding a whole lot. Well just thought I'd post a quick update. More to come. Hope everyone is having a great week. Good night.

Good to see that you are still alive and well. :)

Did you and Jen find a place to live, or are you just moving in to her place? Should be fun. Good luck with the job hunt!

24/9 is going to be quite fun. We will DOMINATE...the bottom half of the standings.

I was starting to wonder....

Yeah! Another Fargoian! Maybe Trent will have someone better to ride with... (I prefer to just draft off of him).

What's wrong with dominating the BOTTOM half of the standings, Brian? Maybe Team Litchuania and Sears will bring out there A-game.

brian said...

They better bring their A-game!

No sandbagging allowed on our team!!

I like to "draft" off of Trent too!

Dave said...

Okay, Dave, so how much saddle time are you getting in?

Dave said...

I may be a potential 9mi-er. No decision on freewheel usage.

Dave said...

I'm thinking I'll run 32x18 or 32x19 on the 29er....fixed.

You're going to spin out like crazy running that gear at 9Mile. I would at least bring a 16t cog if you're running a 32t chainring.

:)

Dave said...

remember though......it's a 29er....32x18 is = 2 32x16 on a 26inch wheel.....or do you still think I will spinout?

my .02...34x16 is plenty big on a 26/SS--at least the last two yrs that's been enough suffering sole for me...if i was on a team..I'd be 38x17in' it...but I'm not...

You have to "Man Up" and gear up on the Fixie if you want to go any more than 10mph down hill and in the flats. 34-16 is what I'm turning on the FlaminFixiII
