Old Dog, New Bike

If you don't mind being a little chilled, the past couple of weeks have been great for riding. I've been fitting in a little singletrack time in the mornings when the trails are nice 'n frozen.  I coaxed my riding partner out into the cold Actually, I didn't have to do anything. She was born ready for winter riding.

Look at that face.

I got a new single speed MTB frame recently (don't worry- one in, one out- enjoy your new home, Frankenbike). Maybe I'll write more about it later. Or maybe not. We'll see. I will say it's pretty sweet. Not that I'm overly concerned with weight- but I'm pretty excited that this bike built up more than 2lbs lighter than my last setup.  It makes me feel fast.  Like awesome bike racer fast. It's really a feeling more than an actual improvement in performance, though. I'm pretty sure I look like this when I ride (oh, or this- thanks, Jody).


It comes with operating instructions right on the top tube and it's sporting this years hottest fashion accessory- the NEMBA Headcap. Don't be jealous. Get yours here.

  1. Gorgeous color on that - is it an EMD? And thanks for the NEMBA plug!

    I love my tamale red EMD too...

    1. I just got a new mountain bike too - my first ever folding bike. I know it sounds kind of crazy, but it rides great. I recently moved, and I'm a lot further from the trail than I used to be, so I wanted a bike that could go in my car more easily without a rack.

  2. It's a 'godzilla green' One9. Big wheels- fun when I was a kid, still fun now.

    Also- Montague is right here in the neighborhood! Pretty cool.
