gots one mo' CX race this weekend. gotta show the CCCX boys some love and pay entries to that fiesta o' pain.
I guess that means i'll have to give a wash n' lube to the Kona. Haven't touched it since Stellar and Krakulak almost killed me in the Basin.
ya know, it kinda pisses me off that i can't corner for shit on a cross bike. i mean, if it's a clench the butt, drop off the face of the earth descent ... i'm all golden and can bomb with the best of them. But ~ if you're talking the finesse and vision of nimbling around trees and shrubberbubs ... i suck like the Hoover.
And yet ... road-style ~ it's 2nd nature and i can spin the bike around like a ballerina. i can tilt tread 45 and laugh giddy-like with one eye closed. but you put me on one of those Pilarcitos mazes and i crash like i'm on the way to an AA meeting.
maybe i do need to practice me some bmx.
