It’s detail week. Must…have…focus…
Change has been the recent theme. Change is not such a good thing for my focus, so today I’m reigning it in.
Speaking of change, St George may lie in the desert but that doesn’t mean we can’t have a taste of autumn here. This is just up the trail from my house on the way up Pine Valley mtn. It’s quite the ride. The tail end of a 4,000′ climb finishes with 26% grade pitches. Reliable Vertigo, maybe that’s what this climb should be called.
Water is everywhere on this ride. Water spigots in the boonies, tough to beat that.
The focus of yesterday’s ride was to dial in a new rear shock on the Lev. Thanks to this gent on a big white horse I am now testing a new shock that kills the Lev bob issue, is quiet and smooth. It has no branding and I don’t know what it is so don’t ask! So far though I gotta say it works well. It looks to be in for Moab.
Not to be outdone by the white horseman, Brendan was dropping stuff last weekend fully rigid.
Next up: tuning the rear shock for the new Song. The Cane Creek valve kit is here, time to make this girl sing her finest tune.
A’ight. Off to make that plan.
