I'm riding in this coming Sunday's Minnesota Youth Hostel Ironman bike ride . I'm doing the 60 miler with a friend and one of his friends. I'm going to ride the sow bike. I wrote about that a few posts ago.
Since then, I've fixed the headset. I can now ride it with no hands. I also installed drop bars and 26x1.25 slick tires. Holy crap! It rides like a road bike now. No more sow sensations. It makes me think a road bike specifically built around 559 tires would ride great.
They're forecasting rain for the day, so I'll bring my poncho.
