I didn’t get a Friday Photo; so here ‘ya go with a couple pics from my ride today. I have to be honest, before last weekend I was unable to ride for a month because of an injury. So, I’m happy to say I went for more miles this weekend than the last, most off-road, 4 or so on the tarmac to get to the trails. Out on the Pugs again; Vaya just needs the steer tube cut and then I’ll wrap the handlebars and it’ll be good to go. Pics soon (I hope).

Doing reconnaissance for a gravel grinder race I’m thinking of creating here in the Bay Area. We took a ride this afternoon; it was pretty easy. Really nice weather here; they say +15˚ above normal. My Vaya’s not done yet so I took off on the Pugs. Here’s an egret in the creek.
Two packages in the mail today. I received a chain, derailleur cables, tires, WTB sealant, seat, and pedals. Whoo hoo! Now I can really get moving on my build. I think the only major part I’m missing are the Apex shifters (due Thurs.). Also, since I have the tires mounted on my rims, I can begin adjusting the height of the stem and get the steerer tube cut.
Did you miss the part where I said I had the tires mounted? And they’re holding air. I ordered the new WTB Speed TCS Cross Country wheels which claim to be able to easily mount tubeless tires without an air compressor. Like I said, it’s not just marketing! I seated my first, ever tubeless tire in seconds (and the special sauce is in there too). Here it is…………..
Visited my daughter today in Santa Cruz. It’s always good to see her. A parent can’t ask for more than their child to be happy and satisfied at what they’re doing and where they are. We are both blessed.
We had a great breakfast at our usual place and then visited a farmer’s market where three of my daughter’s housemates where playing in a band; 4 Goats Found.
and the Big Dummy.
