Time To Build

So its Thursday and I just did not have time to post much this week. Mondays post was a short afterthought in the afternoon. But today I have time.

Got in a ride both Tuesday and Wednesday morn hence the low post time. Both days good. Yesterday we cheated the weather for once. Rain all around us and when we returned from the two and a half hour ride it started to rain maybe two blocks from the store. Its nice to catch a weather break once in awhile with a the cold and rain of late. I think I’ve got a tick over 4 hours already this week so my 6 hour goal should be no problem although there is rain forecasted almost every day in the next 5 days.

This moring is raining but I did not plan a ride today anyway.

Here’s what’s new:


There sits my Farley EX. I have not even sat on that bike since the Birkie March 11th. It’s now a few days from May. I have yet to turn one wheel on dirt yet this spring. But that will change soon. I’ve been waiting for my 29+ rims (Raceface ARC) to come back in stock and I just got a email they shipped yesterday. Maybe here today. I’ve got tires, tape and Stans waiting and will get that wheelset worked up early next week. I see my first ride in the woods in my near future. But first it has to stop raining.

Then yesterday I get a email that my shifter\brakes have indeed shipped and that is the last piece downloadI need to put together my real BMC. I’ll clean up the Road Machine 2 and put it back on the floor with a discount (it s a 56) and get my Road Machine 1 up and running.

I can’t wait to get that one done. It’s going to be a tedious build with all the hydro and shift wires running thru the headtube. I’ll take my time for sure. Most likely well over a week before I get the time to finish it. But in less than two weeks I’ll be at full strength with the MTB and road bike up and running for the summer.

My next thought is another cross bike. I’ve got a lot of thoughts on that one but I will not even try to think about it until these two bikes are done. But I have eTap floating around for that bike. Or maybe since I was impressed with the 105 on the RM2 I’ve been riding I’ll go that route and make the bike easier to sell later.

Moving on. The store’s been busy since the Trek sale which went well. By Monday\Tuesday of next week I should have all the sale bikes done and gone. Then its time to move forward with other sales projects that I have been thinking about. But  before that maybe a little R and R. Planning a few days out of town in two weeks. Just a little mini vaca for maybe three days. Destination unknown. But I think it will be a bike free vaca. Hopefully get some batteries recharged.

I can’t believe its almost May.
