Riding . Millcreek-Beverly/Capilano
on the way back home.............I took a picture
First ride on the upgraded Stumpy and I cannot believe the difference in the brakes ! To think I wasn`t going to put them on there . That makes me excited for the Hope brakes I`m waiting for the Mojo . Talked to the guys at the shop and my wheels have been shipped from Carolina , so in a couple of weeks the Mojo will get sexed up nicely !
Didn`t feel like sticking around and climbing hills all day so I rode the North side of the river to Beverly crossed into Capilano and took the snowy side of the river home . I saw some guys riding some pretty nice bikes out there today and I cringed when I thought about all the wet sand and gravel going into their expensive drivetrains , but then realized that they are riding mountain bikes and I can be somewhat of a narcissistic douche pouch at times ........he he he
As I said before , the bike feels great with the brakes and nicer wheels . It is going to make me think twice about selling it soon .....But yet Blizzard ......Blizzard ! I`ve always wanted a Blizzard ! Anyone want to buy a Stumpjumper ?
