If it's not 5 degrees out, it must be raining.  At least the days are starting to get longer now.

Amazing... I can ride for hours, but run 3 miles and I am sore for 3 days.

Fork Installed

Got the White Bros. fork installed. Even took a good ride (though with all the rain and snow lately I had to stick to the road).

Great fork. I didn't want one that seemed too plush or bouncy. This is the ticket. Thanks again Chad!

Since I can't keep up with my rigid front fork, I decided to try a suspension fork.  Picked up a used White Bros. Magic 80mm 29'r.  Kind of a Christmas present, so I am not sure when I will be "allowed" to install it.  Would like to put some miles in this weekend, but may have to do it rigid.

To the Moon

Sunpower, Inc. has been selected to continue development of a lunar fission surface electric power generator.  Read more at Popular Science.  Thankfully, we are only working with the Stirling engine and not the nuclear power.

Mohican 100k

So I think I have decided to try and prepare to ride/race the Mohican 100k next summer on my Redline d440.  62 mi. of pavement, dirt roads, doubletrack and singletrack.  The men's open class winner did it in 5 hrs, 20 mins last year.  I would hope just to finish :)
