    I love the design of the frame, geometry and graphics. The frame, crankset and wheels make it feel stiff laterally, can't sense any flex at all during out-of-saddle climbs or sprints. Some things that could be better are the welds, the drivetrain is louder than my steel bikes (think it's the aluminum) and the aluminum is thin-walled. I have a dent on the top tube from barswing. This bike definitely catches people's eyes, it's gotten catcalls on M street a couple of times. The Mash SSCX is sweet, I think you should get it. Definitely.

    I can't begin to tell you how much fun that bike is. Having a tire that big up front on a fixie is an absolutely brilliant set-up. I wish I could claim that I came up with the idea. Every turn of the pedals on that bike puts a huge grin on my face.

    Those are the new trails at Fountainhead. They are a BLAST on the fixie. Lots of swoopy stuff, but still some good climbs, rocks and roots in the old section. It required more energy than I had yesterday. Tough weekend plus getting to the fountainhead trailhead after 60 miles of riding was not a recipe for a great lap time. The first half is soooooooo much fun that it is hard to do anything but go full gas. Interestingly it was my arms and shoulders that tired out before my legs did. Got to one of the tough climbs on the old sections of trail, got half way up and my arms made the "Game over" noise from Ms. Pacman. The rest of the lap was fun, but at a bit more of a relaxed pace. Fixie offroading for a long ride like this definitely works the whole body.

    The cool side was that I rode trails in at least 6 different parks in Fairfax County. Super Cool that DaveK gave me a lift home.

    Hope y'all are having a good extended weekend. Work is blissfully quiet.

    I will definitely have to try the new trails. I've tried fixed off road in the past but could never get the pedals in the right position to go over obstacles, have been riding SSCX especially for the dismounts / mounts. This looks like a good place to train for the Capital Cross Classic race coming up on 12/2.

    This is why when people ask me if I have a MTB I say "no":

    I will probably un-Franken this bike a bit over winter so I can use it in public, with studded tires. I have a 26" wheelset with Nokians waiting. I rode this bike today for the second time since January.
    The lowest "MEGARANGE" gear is amazing, never calculated the GI but it's 32-34 or something crazy like that, on 26" slicks. I don't own cable cutters so I never trimmed the front brake Jagwire when I installed the BB7. The rear fender kept falling off during my ride - a bolt came out when I went over a speed bump.


    The thing next to the stream said "Science Experiment - Please do not touch". It didn't come out on my point-and-shoot.


    And earlier I took my getting-close-to-2 year old on her longest bike ride ever, a trailblazing 6.66mi:

    Wow, those bar ends. Those fenders, and is the pump tied to the frame? I would definitely remember seeing this bike. does the bar setup feel like mustache bars?
