Shifting Gears

My only hard tail w/shifty bits
My son starts school today! That's a sign. A sign that things are turning and changing. Summer is waning and Fall is right around the corner. I like Fall, but Summer waited so long to get going I feel like it was barely here and now it's almost over.

Other changes are coming too. Fall brings all the new bicycle news and people start making plans to get on new rigs or newer components. Fall brings out the cyclo cross nuts and fat bikes. Fall brings out the lights and the wool stuff. Fall is a great time to be out in the woods in the crisp air.

But Summer isn't over just yet, and who knows how long She'll stay on this year. It's been coolish here and doesn't look to be changing soon, so the "perfect weather" just keeps on rolling. 70's during the day, lower 60's and upper 50's at night.

There's going to be some changes around here as well. I have a plan to get a couple new rigs in the stable over the next six months. (Gotta plan ahead, ya know!) So, I may be parting with some stuff in the coming months. Still figuring all that out just yet. There will be some spiffing up of the fat bikes here. The Snow Dog needs some new drive train bits and By-Tor needs some new, monster wheels to accept some new rubber I've planned to install. Plus there may be a new wheel set that will be "quite interesting" for By-Tor coming also. Stay tuned....
