Hey, Where's Perry?

Rode Perry today for the first time in a long time.  That trail has bang for the buck, no doubt.  Lyle and KTC have everything in order out there, so if you're looking for a nice ride this weekend, do it.  The entire trail is groomed- not one leaf anywhere, just dirt and rock tread!

Carlyle was my favorite section this time around.  Super-duper.  I've been pondering getting a geared mtb and so I rode today with thoughts of what I'd change about my current bike.  Good ride to test all the pertinent parameters.  Good... place... to... get some thinkin' done.  I'm leaning towards having Doug Curtiss fire me a OX Plat hardtail built around my 650B's.  I dig his banana stays and I'm a huge fan of breezer dropouts.  Never EVER underestimate the importance of solid dropouts.  It's like two rural phone books and a burrito compared to a ship with wings and a bunch of pretty girls on it.
