    I just got back from trying out the new ride. ITS FREAKING HOT! I got a call from my relator and she said get to packing. So I have to make hay while the sun is shining. We have to plan a dupont day for sure now. All I can think about its riding then diving in Hooker Falls.

    I did the same, and I concur. Hot.

    It wasn't a great idea riding in 96+ when I'm out of shape, but it felt great getting back on a bike. The ride is so smooth compared to my hard tail (shocking I know).

    Here's my new ride

    Very nice Cary. Where did you ride? I agree about the smooth ride, I was clicking along twice my normal speed just grinning. Ive got a lot of tires to choose from. I almost took the Nobby Nicks off and set up My Maxxis Ikons tubeless before I left for a faster ride. Glad I didn't, I needed every bit of traction in the corners and curves, been along time since I've been that fast. Blowing thru turns everywhere.

    I just did a quick loop on the canal single track here in Augusta. Once I get my legs back a little more I'll hit FATS and some others. I also have a set of 2.35 Ikons in the mail. They'll be here tomorrow. The tires that came with this bike are heavy. Switching to the Ikons is going to drop over a pound.

    I did that too. Less to think about coming from years of SS riding.

    I can probably swing an early morning trip out to Dupont. Should have my chain fixed by lunch today. I just have to be careful with the baby only a few weeks away. Might be my last trip to Dupont until he gets here. I don't want to be to far from home just in case he decides to make an early appearance.
