We had big plans to head to California Saturday, and so before we did I woke up at an absurd time and had myself a jolly ride in the dark before the sun rise. Loved sneaking in juts one more ride and ended a good week on the bike. Off toe California, kinda wish I could bring the bike.
Beautiful day for a nice ride, came across quite a few packs of folks out there, the snowbirds are armed with badges bearing they're from Minnesota. Not sure why they badge themselves but had a pack of 20 walk by me as I waited for them, they were all very kind and lead me to believe Mid Westerners are very friendly people.
Ran out on the other Superfly, it sure is nice to be on 32x18 on those flat trails at Usery, sometimes being a single speeder your not in the right gear but 32x20 is about perfect for me from Az flats to Mountain filled Utah. With that said it was a good spin and eventually lead to a deflating tube, haven't converted it over yet, awaiting extra cash for tubeless ready tires and strips. Soon, for now it sits flat, that tow tubes in two rides........

Very fortunately I have gotten in a better mindset after the last few rides and even though I was at a pretty bland San Tan ride this one was good. Tons of people out there still, waiting for the heat to drive them off in a way, but dreading the heat on it's way too.
So I have long been playing out in my head if I found another 2015 superbly SS I just might buy it. Well the day came after a recent search on Craigslist turned one up for sale in Tucson. It was a size bigger than mine but the numbers actually showed it would fit just fine. The price was unbeatable. Excited and nervous I drove down to Tucson to check it out, it was bone stock and felt great so it came home with me. Now I finally have a backup bike and also parts for the Belltown. Not sure which way I am going with the belltown just yet but plenty time to decide. This ride was overdue so I took it to Mcdowells for a shakedown. I chose some different trails and forgot how good it is when your not wasting all that time pedaling Pemberton. With a very very nice change in scenery and delicious trails I was stoked. The bike felt good too, was missing my wheel/tire since the Bontrager Mustangs kind of suck and on narrow 2.2 tires on narrow rim it was rigid but just fine.
