with the burnin' only a few short days away, i was pretty disappointed when i couldn't do today's short track race. i've had a cold the last couple of days, and it has all the makings of a really bad one. so, i opted out, hoping to save myself for 4 or more laps of pain at council bluff.
after having ridden the trusty homegrown last weekend at chubb, i decided that i'm just not a hardtail guy. i wanted to be, and i oscillate back and forth over this, but i'm not. so, i used the considerable resources available to me and scored a lightweight, short travel bike for the occasion. i rode easy on it both saturday and sunday, making sure the bugs are out, and it's ready for primetime. this morning i was dead set on swapping out the totally 90's red anodized race face cranks for the exact same pair in black, but tonight i just say who cares? as good as it was shifting today, i'm not going to bother.
burnin', here we come!
