First thoughts are excellent. Super stiff, ultra light, and a suprisingly compliant rear end. I'm still getting the suspension tuned in and adjusting to the quicker head angle but hopefully that won't take long. As far as the fitting, it's only been a day or two on the new measurements, but the changes were noticable immediatially in John's studio. For years I've been riding the same saddle height based on what felt good. John told me that it's been too high and that has been over-extending my hamstrings which could be the reason for my cramping problems in past. After lowering it, my pedal stoke was visablly smoother and felt alot more comfortable. Only time will tell.
Last weekend was the second race in Zach Adams Y-Riders series. The course he had set up was pretty cool, some new raw trails plus some tight and technical sections made a challenging loop. The only problem was the turnout for the event. I'm guessing people just don't know about his races, but he puts on as good of an event as any other. So if your looking for some good racing check out his events.
The Playground Posse. We know fun when we see it. Tomorrow is Greenbrier, another stacked pro field expected.
I wish Jenny was here....
