so I am going to head out in a minute and ride. I might just go ride Pachaug and cruise a bit. I have been keeping the weight off, no idea how. I started to build the Crescent, but I think the raleigh with the bio-pace rings might also get built as my commuterJust have to decide on the bars, and it can be road-worthy in a week or so. maybe another $50.
The crescent might make a good touring rig. Shorten up the stem, get some wider touring bars, and maybe even get a 31.8 adaptor stem. Fenders the whole gig.
But for now, the trek is my whip. and I think I may even go try a trail today. It is beautiful out.
