First time at Elm Creek mountain biking. Very enjoy. Fast and swoopy with a lot of dips. I was a bit weak from the stomach virus a couple of days ago so the sandy parairie trails kinda wore me out. I found myself sitting in the saddle way too often. But in the trees the trail was tacky enough where the tires stuck and I could hit the turns pretty fast. The trees were pretty tight. The 30mm I knocked off my bars seems to be fine. I am still having a harder time getting used to the 29er tires. I was missing the 26 inch wheels a bit today. We shall see how it goes. Looking forward tom many future runs at Elm Creek!
First actual MTB trail ride on the Superfly. It took a little bit of time to get used to the handling of a 29er. But I think I will like it. I need to make some small tweaks. But it feels pretty good stock. I took 15mm off each end of the bars. I may take another 10 off each side.
Rode my Tassahara winter bike to work to build my Superfly. Rode the Superfly home.
It was fucking awesome!! I'll post som pics tomorrow and explain why I chose the closeout 2011 over the 2012.
