  • Saturday was nice…

    soma double cross


    Saturday was one of the nicest days we’ve had in Burlington lately and I tried to take full advantage of it. We had 40 degree weather, mostly sun in the morning, and not too much wind. I had a big list of things to do that day, one goal being to find this tunnel and walk through it; I also wanted to get the Soma out for a quick jaunt.

    It’s such a nice feeling riding a bike with 100 psi under me again, especially after spending most of my riding days on studs. At this point with the winter the way it’s been, I could either take a huge snowstorm and be content, or just have straight-up spring hit. I think I’m leaning towards the latter. Couple more bike/nature photos below…Happy Monday everyone.

  • Riding The Old Roads…

    Sorry, photos from my cell-y.

    I decided to take a quick trip back to New Jersey on Wednesday to visit my folks, relax and do some riding on some of the beautiful roads we have around North-Central Jersey. I gotta say, the experience was quite nostalgic and most definitely therapeutic. I’m scheduled to start a new job on Monday and as you could imagine, I’ve had quite a bit running through my head the past week (not just anxiousness to start). So what better way to take your mind off things than by re-riding some of your favorite roads from the high school racing days? Nothing; and no prescription necessary.  I finally dialed-in the correct stack height on the Soma too, so that nub will be chopped as soon as I get back to my tools in VT.

    Soma Double Cross

    A little while ago I posted some photos of my San Lorenzo before I stripped the parts and hung the frame (for now). Since then I’ve been riding my Soma Double Cross for a couple weeks through all sorts of different terrain that wouldn’t have been rideable on my Bianchi. Dirt roads, single track, and the smooth ride of steel have me hooked on this bike. Although, I’m still not sure the race bike is retired-it’s just a different beast I’ll put on ice for a bit.

    I pretty much swapped all the parts from my road bike to the Soma and picked up a Chris King headset, TRP Eurox Canti’s, and some 28c Rubino Pro’s.
