Get Ready

OK, today I got my bike ready. I put on an 18t cog and a new PC850 chain, replaced the rear funbolts with QR, cleaned and lubed the rear hub, removed one bottle cage to leave room for the Morph pump, inspected frame, fork, brakes, crankset, saddle, handlebars, and tires. The tires have had a lot miles so hopefully they survive for another 100 miles.

One Week from SM100

It's time to get ready for the race. I'll drive to the camping ground Saturday and spend the night there. Sunday hopefully I will finish the 100 mile course early enough that I can eat some stuff before I head back home.

And no, no new bike purchase this time. I'll take the Vicious, full rigid ss geared at 32x18. Weighed the bike last night, 21.5 lb with pedals and bottle cages :)
