Ready for cross!!.....TNSquared

or at least my bike is. whether or not the rider is ready remains to be seen. :)

I'm posting additional pics on the general board, but since it was you bunch of wacked-out sickos and your posts that inspired me to try cross, thought I'd put one pic over here and say thanks (i think.)

I dunno, too color coordinated or what? Like you can ever have too much celeste, or like it will matter after the first good-n-muddy race! :)

The bianchi will look equally good covered in grass, mud, blood, sweat and tears.

You may want to remove the computer system, you wont have time to look!

Cheers and good luck.

fwiw J + mtb/cross bike + computer = hospital

the computer is strictly for post-race assessment. Probably comes from my running background, but I am incredibly anal about tracking and comparing data from each training ride/run and race. Distance, speed, weather conditions, what I ate the night before - ya know, alwasy looking for another two seconds. :)

Also, since this bike will second as my winter road bike, I went ahead and mounted the computer because I don't want to be constantly putting it on and taking it off.

I don't even look at the computer while riding on my road bike, so definitely won't be doing so on the cx course. probably will be too covered in drool to read anyway.

for a really sick mud & blood-fest on your first race. it's a pitiful shame how clean that cross bike is after your 3-week scrubdown. time for some mud.

btw--bike maintenance secret: caked mud hides rust.


Actually, celeste & mud (brown)...AJS
