Well, here she is in her current, yet rideable state. I only had the rear brake on, but should have the front later this week when I get the correct mounting bracket. It truly stunk at first, but as disc brakes wear in, they get better. And it did.
Sorry about the blurry photos. My camera sight fogged over due to the humidity, so I couldn’t see very well to focus. Yeah, that’s my excuse!
The ride started out with Barrett, Scott and myself. Dave showed up a little late and caught up to us. This was not too hard as I was sucking wind big time. It’s really my longest ride in over a month since hurting myself. I’m amazed at how I lost what little bike fitness I had!
And here he is staring us down( I believe he used his massive brain to make just himself look blurry in this picture). I think he was amazed at just how laid back (or lazy) we were. And he kept saying ” I can’t hear what you’re saying. Your huge tires make too much noise!”
After we chatted and rested, it was time to head back. It was also getting dark. And as luck would have it we had one not very bright light between all of us. It was fun and mostly downhill. We finished the ride off with Vesna and myself almost running over a copperhead. Sorry, no photo of it. And nor will you see me stop to try and take one! Ick!!!
Antoine, you’re right. You do bounce around a lot with too much air in the Endomorphs.
Doug, thanks for the idea on the crankset. It’s working perfectly.
