To paraphrase world champion Christoph Sauser, "It (29er) makes a great grocery getter for my mom."

I made it into a singlespeed on saturday, 42x16. I did this by not shifting for 3 hours of riding. Practice for running a 1x9.
Cam and the crew are out tearing up Blue River as I type this. I wanted to joing them, but 7am on this Sunday was too early. I had a goal of relaxing and staying in Lawrence all weekend, which seems like is going to be accomplished.
