All it took was a new pair of tires and now she wants to be a cross dresser. My hybrid wants to be a cyclocross. There, I said it. It's not so bad. It's actually kind of fun. I rode it today. 700. 35. Knobby tires. Oh yeah, I rode her today. And boy was it fun!
I was like a 10 year old on a brand new bike. She's always been my favorite bike, but our relationship has been a bit stale the past year. These new shoes with their beefy rubber...fun, fun, fun. I really am that easy to please. Grinning ear to ear in my mud colored glasses.
I'm no where near race ready, nor interested, really. But if I got stronger I could throw the old road cassette back on this baby and have a real Xbike at the low low cost of $80! Since I don't like a drop bar I'm 3/4 of the way there!
Imagine it. Me and RF neck and neck racing for the finish. She, on her new Cross, me on my 'Brid. Going...for...broke...on...the...final....s..t..r..e..t..c..h... Me...Rach...Me...Rach...who's it gonna.....be......who's gonna take last place this time...??
