Trans Iowa v5

Hey, I'm in Trans Iowa v5. Here we go again. Hopefully this year I can make a few more miles than last year.

I will probably be selling my S-Works and Epic to get something else. I'm thinking about a Salsa Fargo and maybe a Gary Fisher 29er HardTail. The Fargo will be the first one to get since that will be my Trans Iowa ride. I have finally figured out that XTR is nice and light, but way to expensive for an everyday bike. XT works just fine in that situation.

The days are getting colder and it is getting to the point where the Buell will have to be garaged for warmer weather. I rode it to work a few days this week. Not too bad, just kinda cold today. Maybe I'll get out this weekend. I'll have to dress up like a polar bear, but being out there is half the fun.

It is that time of the year to get the basement in order so that I can get back on the trainer. Lots of work needs to be done on getting the garage cleaned out and the basement put into order. Hopefully I can get that done this weekend.
