that one race I'm involved with is over, I have been working through the fleet to get some things back on track again around here.
The next bike on the docket is the Big Mama. I have a "proper" fork on it these days. It was designed for 100mm of travel, but darn near the whole time I've had it I've run a 120mm on it. Last fall, I finally got this 100mm fork to try on it, and only got in a few rides before the weather set in, and then it got parked.
So, now the bike will get a sealant refresh, and a brand spankin' new WTB Pure V saddle. Next upgrade will be on the brakes at some point. I also may swap out the crankset to a SRAM Stylo.
The idea will be to get this rig all ready to go to El Paso Texas soon. More details on that trip will be told later, but for right now, I just have to get this fully going again. One big upgrade that may be coming in is a dropper seat post.
I've never even considered using one of these multi-height posts. Never really saw the need, but I keep hearing they are really nice to use, so I figured that going back to the crazy rocks of the El Paso area would be a perfect place to try one out.
