It is absolutely colder than a witches tit here in KC. Just freaking bitterly cold. So cold I get chills thinking about how cold it is. Luckily we had a strange warm feeling part-of-a-day recently and i got out for a quick ride. It was so nice in fact that I wore my red flannel shirt, some cut-off jean shorts (that I like to refer to as the Pat Warren Memorial Shorts) and summer gloves. It was great! I was warm and feeling as far from a lycra-wearing pansy as possible. Pure awesomeness.
I have to admit something. I love my 29er. It's all I've been riding. I have a new White Brothers Rock Solid Carbon fork on the way and I am going to rage some trail this season. Hope to see you out there!
