Bonhomme de neige



I'm off to Montreal, QC tomorrow. I've fit the nastiest meanest tires possible under my Spicer, and have geared it appropriately for churning such steel filled pneumatics.

Passport, check.
DS2019, check.
I94, check.
Proof of health insurance, check.

(who would have thought visiting ones own country would require so much documentation)


My front tire is a new Schwalbe CX Comp filled with 348 #8 screws. The rear is a worn, and then siped Bontrager Jones CX with a mere 208 screws. I read an ice tire tutorial put together by the race organizers, and they recommend anywhere from 300-600 screws for a 700c tire. Wow. I'm doing it dumber apparently.

leg armour, check.

I've been a little stressed lately with the hub business, and things are finally starting to roll smoothly. This weekend has been the most fun weekend of my life for a couple years now, and it should be a time to celebrate. So fuck it. That's what I'm gonna do!

Besides La Coupe Des Glaces, its the SIXTH Mini Bike Winter. Way to turn 6 guys! Its also cause for celebration because its the one year anniversary of me and Alicia Rhiannon getting married.. AND our Reverend was JUST FOUND NOT GUILTY in his taser trial! YEAH! We're so happy for you Phil.

Sometimes you just have to stop and think about how good you actually have it. Then clip back in and fucking pedal harder.
