Somewhere, somehow, I got a bit tied up and didn’t post yesterday. A bit of a catch up. I got most of my list from Wednesday. Xtracycle-age , groceries and some light cleaning. I’ve been allowing things to roll off my back of non-importance. Priortizing and such.
The Xtra-sausage went together well with a slighter larger cassette on the rear. The chain is almost maxed out, but won’t lock up so less chain slap. Pacenti Quasi Moto’s went on with a bit beefier wheels. Velocity Blunts 32 hole, laced 3 cross to XT hubs. Wheels that were originally built for the Fast Boy. The front Fast Boy fender had to come off due to the tire size, but boy are the fatties fun to ride!
You can see that groceries were bought. Tons of them too. I think that might of been the largest grocery run, on record, since living by myself. A good amount of those groceries, or forms of those groceries, were for a camping trip this weekend. Trail mix, soup, fruit, etc etc.
Today was an exciting day as I had a meeting with the Bicycle Planner of Charlotte. Ken Tippett is a swell fellow and had some great ideas for the new Trek Store and getting involved with the community. Getting folks on bikes and of course bikes in general. Turns out he’s a bicycle touring freak as well.
This weekend is the MTB Oktoberfest. I’ll be gone to that all weekend long. Rain, and tons of rain, is in the forecast. I’m glad that the shop has a trailer for events like these that I can pitch up in!
