The New River Gorge

Why do I live in Virginia Beach? How did I get here? I don't surf. There are no waves. There are no mountains. What the F am I thinking. Anybody wanna buy a condo four blocks from the beautiful sunny Virginia Beach Oceanfront?

Moots MootoX Single Speed 29er

Do I like it? I know the picture speaks for itself, but let me tell you. THIS BIKE IS SICK. The Fox shox is awesome, it seems stiffer than my Reba which means it goes where you point it. The hope brakes, sweet as pie. The frame is soooo sexy and it is a great combo of stiffness and forgiveness. It's quite nimble and is easy to hop over stuff. Did I mention the bee buzzin sexy sound of the King Hubs. I have had them before, on road bikes and cross bikes and the sound just isn't the same. When on a single speed part of the beauty is the silentness of the ride. When you are winding through some technical stuff and you hear the bee's on and off its soooo sweeett. New Quarter was very dry. Babycakes found her mountain bike zen and had a great ride. We busted out 3 laps before some mexican food at Tequila Rose. Peace.

Moots MootoX 29er Uno

Here she is. I have waited 3 months to pull this together and in reality about ten years. I have looked at Moots, sold them, fondled, and drooled. For whatever reason (mostly my obsession with IF), I hadn't purchased one. I even went to the extent of filling out an employee purchase form years ago and never did it. Well its time this dream came to fruition. The housing on the sexy ass brakes are a little long and will be remedied next week, but I'm riding tomorrow. The wheels were a challenge. I've built most of my wheels, but when it is a rear disc wheel and your push pull spokes gotta be laced opposite on the non- drive side. Well; lets just say it wasn't clicking at first and some very expensive stuff almost got thrown across the room. Huge amounts of patience went into this project. Half the stuff I ordered in the beginning of May wasn't available and the original fork plan DT Swiss rigid still isn't available. Well anyway; its late and I need some alone time with my new lady. Peace
