    He's pretty damned awesome, most of the time! I think he just really likes seeing me "tattoo'd" with bruises, heh.

    DH and I met through road riding, but I didn't start mountain biking until after we were married. I take an insane about a pleasure from the look of pride he has on his face when we're on the trail together, and I'm holding my own. I know he's really happy that I decided--with a lot of hestitation--to give it an honest try (thanks for the motivation, Catrin), and he's thrilled that I'm loving it as much as I do. We come back way more amped from our mtb rides than our road rides. That's not a diss on road riding; we're just really enjoying the time we spend together on the trails.
    Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen hard. Practice wellness. Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret. Continue to learn. Appreciate your friends. Do what you love. Live as if this is all there is.

    Oh, the suspense is KILLING me! Current ETA on my bike is not until Oct. or Nov. Sux. I was thisclose to buying a friend's Iceman Cometh entry, too, since she had knee surgery this Spring and it's not healing as fast as she had hoped. Looks like I may not get to ride my new bike at Owasippe (closest serious mtn. bike trails to me) until next Spring, since they close end of Oct. to allow hunters to use the land.

    Fah-reak-ing out!!!

    Oh, Salsa is supposed to be updating their site with all 2013 models THIS morning! Well, it is after 9:30 Salsa time and it's still the same old same old 2012 site. Get with it, Salsa, I can't properly obsess over things if you won't show me the new bikes!!! Whaaaaaah...I want to see official photos and specs and things!

    Oohhhhh....Salsa's site is up..homer drool Only thing I want from Surly is their Krampus. Salsa's Beargrease is tempting though same with their new Mukluk. I'd have to sell mine to get the new one though.

    I was lusting over the Beargrease until our LBS friend told us that it's not worth the $3k. He said it doesn't feel all that much lighter than the regular Mukluk, so he didn't feel it was worth the asking price for a bike that doesn't feel less bulky. I SO want that orange Mukluk 3, though! A fat bike is almost certainly my N+1 once my El Mariachi comes. Then there isn't anywhere I can't go by bike here in MI!
