Anyway, it would have been nice to get some more outdoor time in on the North Shore, but, the family wasn't feelin' it this year. I want to strike off with one of the kids, a friend, or myself next year and do some MTBing, hiking or something fun on the water. I can't do the sitting around the cabin and skipping stones any longer.

24 miles - 9zero7 - Rode Big Willow on my way home last night and today took Brownie, which was really fresh and difficult. I skipped the last small section - still drained from the flu. I need to build up my base again from the 3 weeks off the bike.

18.5 miles - commute x 2 - 1/26 - 1/27/13

18.5 miles - 9zero7 - off the bike for 18 solid days of sickness. Easy ride to work on the 26th and 27th, but on the 27th the ride home through 3 inches of medium-wet snow was tiring. It took roughly 45+ minutes to go 5.5 miles. But I wouldn't have been able to ride home if I had my GF Tassahara winter bike, with its "skinny MTB tires."

19 miles - 9zero7 - Supersweet daytime ride to Theo and Brownie on the fatbike. Conditions at Theo were good considering the doucher whose footprints are still there from a month ago. Couple of spots are extremely slick and some of the loop was real nice. I rode across Cedar Lake for the first time. Nice.

18 miles - commute/ Theo .25 laps - 1/6/12

18 miles - 9zero7
Pics of my 9zero7 fatbike. Its pretty much stock. After riding it for 300+ miles, I decided that I am going to upgrade the fork to a carbon fiber Carver (unless something else pops up), a carbon or Thompson post, and I am going to go 1x10 with a 34T chainring up front. I may change the bar to a carbon riser depending on cash flow. I am going to keep the Husker DU front tire and install a 45N escalator for the rear, because I like the scooping of the tread for some more uphill traction.
