Saturday News And Views

The Guitar Ted Death Ride Invitational: Originally this was supposed to be today, but I moved it to next weekend. See the latest details on the ride and get a route preview by clicking here! Hope you can make it out to ride with me if you have been thinking about it.

Gary Fisher Superfly Preview: The 24 hour nationals are taking place this weekend up at 9 Mile Forest and Nat Ross will be doing some laps on the newest carbon fiber wonder bike out on the trails, the Gary Fisher Superfly 29"er. Check out the tons of photos we have there and see Nat and Chris Eatough hanging out and setting up Nat's frameset. Notice the Superfly pictured here is painted up in the Team Gary Fisher/Subaru colors. The stock color will be "Nude Carbon" and it will feature a white Bontrager saddle, white decals, and a white Fox F-80 RLC fork. Pretty sharp! This looks to be one of the best frames out there designed for 29"ers that should eliminate front triangle torsional flex that has haunted most frame designs that 29"ers have sported up to this point. That should translate into a snappier handling bike that goes where you point it and rails corners without getting knocked offline. I hope to be able to prove that point sometime yet this summer by riding one. Stay tuned!

27five- It's coming soon!: Lots of buzz over the 650B sized off road meats called "27five" by the main promoter of the size, Kirk Pacenti. It seems that several frame manufacturers and custom shops are taking a look and actually planning to produce the mountain bikes that will work with this wheel size. It is rumored that perhaps even I may be seen on one soon! Stay tuned for possible developements!

Okay, that's your bonus, sneaky post for Saturday! You better be riding later! Get on it!
