Got home from work, adjusted the crank on the 27 Hawthorne. Also, after 8 days of waiting, a set of triple trap pedals for the 51 Schwinn arrived. Mind you, these aren't the ones I originally ordered, no, those were lost in transit and all they had left was blue. I wish I had them on the bike last night, wet pedal, foot slipage and somehow strained my meniscus in my right knee. Just found out riding isn't really conducive to healing quickly.

No pain, no gain.

5 hours after I put this post up, got a delivery.

The original set of pedals I ordered. smh.

I woke up with one goal today. "Clean House".

With the Covid-19 virus, and not many visitors I have let things slide for too long. Wen I woke up this morning I had three bikes stacked up in the hallway just past my front door and started to feel a bit overwhelmed as I tried to stumble past them each day..

Today I decided to re-organize and hang them all back up in the basement. As I was cleaning house I found a bike stacked behind a few others that I completely forgot I still had.

I did not clean as much as I hoped. around 1:00 a got distracted and went fishing.

Sorry for yet another mountain bike post, but this one is pretty cool. Its a K2 with custom built Red Mavic 517 wheels, Time pedals, and a well worn set of tires that used to be my favorite mountain bike race tires of all time, (Specialized 26 x 1.90 Team Dirt Masters).

This is the only wheelset I have ever payed to have custom built for me, and when I received them from a order in Irving California back around 2000 I was very disappointed. After I got them in the mail instead of returning them, I learned how to tune them up myself.

Once I found out that I still had it, and realized that I at some point moved a few parts over to it. I just had to take it out for a mid evening adventure.

I really liked the way this bike fit and handled. Its my lightest mountain bike, and feels fast.

Not to destroy anymore of my tires, I
took my brother in law's Diamondback Edgewood for a 22 miler on the TNT.

The crews clearing the power lines uncovered this what appears to be shed of some sorts.

Rode the Basin trail in Franconia Notch today. Got blasted with a quick heavy shower. Dried off quickly, as I was able to take cover under a bridge. After the shower turned out to be a beautiful day for a ride.

Good morning to you all. I took the "stationwagon" out this morning for a 23+ mile journey. I thought I would pick up some things while I was out.

Restaurants here can now have outdoor dining at half capacity. The tent business is booming

The only thing I picked up was a Detour bar. Like they say, "There is no mission without nutrition."
