19° NW @ 15

She called my bluff when I asked, " Ready to go for a ride ?!? " I was pleasently shocked, it was a nice 4 mile ride.

Road to Nowhere

6 miles heading into 29° with 21 mph winds proved too much for one of the 28 rear spokes with a 23 tooth cassette :/ I think the tension on the rear wheel was disrupted with the last spoke incident and since the nipples are all locked on with some unknown goo, rebuilding it is gonna be a bear. Got a few pics though. I probabaly need a higher spoke count wheel for the rear.

5 ° NW at 18 mph

No frozen cables but a spoke was broken when the loaded ortlieb containing the tripod fell into the rear wheel. So I loaded up and headed to the shop, thanks Alex !

This pic shows the mod Baker did to the rear rack preventing a loaded pannier from colliding with a spoke on a bump. Thanks Baker, you rock! Check them out at Baker's Bikes

Want please:

Ok, I've now changed my opinion of these things after a little thought and determined they are not safe and will just add to the confusion many drivers experience when approaching cyclists on the road.

Do Over

Focus is still jacked up, I must have lost my touch. Wind was brutal today 20 mph gusting to 30.
