|Okay- Back to normal|
I also mentioned that I was interested in the larger rear cog for a front derailleur free set up. I think I have something in mind for that which will wait till later. (As in- it isn't available just yet)
The big thing- and I've talked about this before, is rims and new wheels. I have looked at all the carbon stuff, and it is very nice, but I think I will be sticking to aluminum, unless Salsa Cycles or Surly has something new up their sleeves. They should, you know. Why does this matter? Because I have become more and more convinced that I need wider rims and big tires. Bigger than 3.8's, at least for the type of riding I do, which is not on groomed stuff. I like bushwhacking, I guess!
Finally, I am liking the purple hub on The Snow Dog. Maybe a full on purple hubbed wheel set that could be swapped between the two? Maybe?
