Jason Lummis: Wow what a great night ! I drove out to Q's shop in Charlotte and he built up my 29er last night. At 24+/- lbs the bike is quick and lively. We broke it in with a quick Charlotte backroad ride last night after the build. I have a pair of American Classics on order and a set of Egg Beater Ti pedals to lighten the bike up come race day. I was hoping for a trial ride today, but the weather said "ICE Storm", which meant another lovely day of not so sunny Michigan.
Speaking of races, only a month and a half away and the MTB races start. Starting with Paris to Ancaster ( www.parisancaster.com ), then the Yankee Springs TT. The MI NORBA series starts off in May with the Whiskey Creek Stage race ( www.tailwind.net ). Until then I keep heading out with the Simonster and Joey B. on the weekends for some hammering miles, trying to squeeze in some hours during the week also. Talked with John Meyers the other day, he said is winter has been going well. Can't wait to race with everyone soon !
I am heading to NC in 2 weeks with the Kona Kids (www.konamidwestracing.com) for a few days of trainning. Hopefully I will get to hook up with STEWY (http://www.scottastewart.blogspot.com/) for a day or 2 also.
Sorry for the fuzy photos but all I had was my pic/phone.
