Secondly, I have a ton of new material written and waiting to be published. I'm confident in saying that I'll have an interesting article published each month, in addition to my usual ride blogs and ranting. The website has also seen a bit of an update and more features are coming as well so check back often.
Thirdly, here are some random photos from during my time away from The Bric and the awesome winter riding I've had.
I also committed myself to doing some bikepacking this year (likely just a few overnighters at this point) and bought myself some gear. I've outfitted myself with a seat bag, handlebar roll, and top tube bag. The bags are all Blackburn Outpost series that I picked up from Outspokin Cycles. Watch for a full on review of the bags after I've had them out a few times. I'm still debating right now if I should grab the matching frame bag to use in conjunction with my Wingnut Hyper 3.0 pack, or just go with the Wingnut Adventure pack and forgo the frame bag all together.
In other news, my fatbike frame has cracked and left me fat-less the last few weeks. I've been doing alot of riding on the CX bike. The crack doesn't look big but it goes 3/4 of the way around the seatstay, bummer. I've been trying to sort out my issue but can't afford a new fat bike so watch for some brazing / bracing action from the Bric soon.
I've been contemplating selling my Norco Torrent to free up some funds for a newer fat bike, as I am sure that the fatty will crack again even after being repaired. I can't complain much though, this fat bike has seen a ton of miles and been through hell and back many times over.
I've also got some updates coming from the projects department, mostly that I've finally finished one. More on that one in a bit.
The Bric...._ mountain biker, road rider, heavyweight gear abuser. Built like a brick sh*thouse. No bike is safe.
