i mounted up my new Husker Du's Friday after work.

the first thing i noticed was these tires are noticably fatter on my LM rims than the Larry/Endo combo i had on!!!

Saturday morning i gave em a test ride.

these tires have grip for days and are almost silent on pavement!!
that was the biggest surprise. my Larry/Endo combo really turned heads. people would hear me coming from damn near a block away!!! LOL

The National Bike Challenge

A couple months back I was asked to join a team for this challenge. I didn't think too much about it, at the time. Sure, yeah, whatever; I thought. Well, a couple months in, and you know what? It's pretty damn cool! I haven't kept track of my riding miles in 10 plus years!! The last time I did, I was averaging 2,500 miles a year; with my high water mark around 3,500. Being single and no family made pedaling a lot easier!! Ha Ha Well, in a week, (probably less), I'll be breaking the 1,000 miles mark. That's pedaling day in and day out, without missing a day!! For the year 2012 I'm pushing towards the 2,000 mile mark. All miles are on my Trusty Pugsley!! Quite an accomplishment, if I do say so myself!! None of this would be possible if I didn't have a very very, did I say VERY understanding and supportive better half!!! Thank Cindi, I love you!! Also, thanks for asking me to join Mr. Holgate!! Here's a summary of our "team", 10 people from Minnesota's Iron Range. Peace

Z's New Ride!!!

Picture taken from the 9:ZERO:7 FB page.
Well, it's official..... our boy Zack will be getting his own spanking new FatBike!! 
He can thank his sister Jenna; and of course mom and dad!! Lol
In October, J will be going to see Justin what's his name at Target Center in Mpls. 
A deal was brokered between mom, Z and J. Dad just has to pay for it!!!??? Ha Ha
Upon purchase of said concert tickets, at a price that wont be spoken aloud again!!!! Ha
Z will be awarded a FatBike 1st; J will have to wait.
There is a certain blogger, (DR).... That has a wife, that has a XS 9:ZERO:7 frame. Lol
If said blogger (DR) reads this, can we hook up sometime in the near future, so our Z could putt-putt up and down your street for a test of size?? It would set Z's dad mind at ease about size and what not.
 We'll be down your way a couple times before August.
