Well it's still plenty toasty around these parts, but still got two afternoon rides in that were uncomfortable but happily done noe the less. Thursday brought me to Hawes, I did my normal 15 mile route pretty much adding in a trail and avoiding the rock I hit unhappily two weeks ago. I reversed the trails on the other side of the road but no no avail did I find much spice in the ride. I ride a lot, I even wish I rode more, and certainly wish I had more ride locations but 5 wishing 30 minutes I can't complain. I sold a bunch of bike stuff this week and found myself with some cash, I can't help but think of the next bike, but I also have to stop myself and realize how much I like my Trek, my only complaint would be the aluminum, just doesn't ride like steel baby. I always like the unit, lifetime warrant, good price, they put 27.5+ tires on it this year and while I had a short ride on 27.5+ I was not impressed enough. I found the added weight rotation, turning feedback and hop were no reason to get rid of normal sized tires. I do get the traction thing, it's biggest bonus,but I like challenges, I don't need fat tires to making obstacles and what not easier, I am good. Still maybe a frames and I can slap 29r wheels on, or give 27.5+ another go and can always sell them I suppose.
