I know, I know... It's been ages. Somewhere around the time that there was a lot of tension about going to Napa (of all places) last year. Durango threatened to take it, and Slappy got all worked up. I found it convenient to not be a blogger. But that's water under the bridge.
NZ '10 - get there however...
Really all I wanted to say is that the 36'er got a thorough test this afternoon. I couldn't stop riding it. I did three separate rides, finishing with a near dark descent. It is a dream. It flies nicely from the hip jump. Rallies Star Wars. Cruises up the meadow and Stacy's like one of those sweet old Cadillacs. Loving it all over the place. The new gear is 32x25 - roughly ends up on the easy side of my main SS. Maybe some day I'll let you ride it.
PS- Ordered some knobbies for it today!
