Pic on left was this morn. Pic on right was Sunday morn. Same spot. What a difference a day makes.
As winter here is getting slowly dismantled it seems Im going thru some kind of strange phase. The kind that starts with denial and ends with acceptance, with a few others in between.
Im really not sure what I feel today. Im the kind of guy who is affected by the weather a ton. And since we live in a area that has neither winter or summer for at least 5 months out of the year I find myself trying to accept it quicker than I usually do.
Looking at the 10 day, nothing shows except a lot more upper 30’s and even a few 40’s for temps. All of a sudden we go from fatbikes to some form of road\cross bike to ride. Which I do not have as I type. Remember the BMC I built to ride this spring? Yesterday I mentioned it was too small for me. Well, the bike is actually a Med and I thought it was a large. The tag (that I made) even says large. The bike (and the invoice) say Med. Once again I need to pay attention to what Im riding. I guess I just dont want to spend a lot of time on my bikes when I have others to deal with. I need to learn to treat my bikes the same as a customers I guess. Anyway… that bike to small. Back to the drawing board for a bike to ride on pavement. And I’ve decided to build, not pull one off the floor. I hate doing that. Even in January. Im sure I have at least 3\4th of a bike laying around in parts right now. With a move pending, it would not be a bad idea to put all those parts on a frame anyway.
So I will build up the bike I call Pinky. I’ve has that old Trek XO1 frame for over 10 years and its been built up at least 6 different times. Tour bike, single speed winter bike, full on cross bike. Like an old friend. Now that I think about it that will be fun. I’ll start today.
