3-day weekend riding binge

I've been bitten by the lack of motivation bug this week....not just for training, but for everything! This means one thing: Big make-up hours for the weekend! I'm actually excited, I have a good workout to do tomorrow plus two days of mountain biking on my new bike.

Thanks to AVX Bikes for hooking me up with the temporary bike...the house has officially been cleared of all the previous mountain bikes that shall not be named. I know nothing about the Soma Juice other than it's steel and a totally different geometry than what I was riding. Eddie luckily had the time to wobble-naught fit me to the bike today, along with my fixed gear bike. For now, the Juice is built up as a geared bike but as soon as the Rotwild race bikes arrive the Juice will go single.

BTW, I spent so much time at AVX today staring at beautiful TT bikes that I think I'm going to do a time trial in 3 weeks. I'll just ride my road bike (just have Eddie change the fit on it). This will be my entry into any sort of road racing but I think it will be fun.

I've been slackin on the photos lately, so I'll make sure to take my camera out this weekend for the rides. I think the sun may actually be shining this weekend, whoa!

Soma Juice looks sweet. Killer frame for the price. Almost bought one when I was last shopping. Downside, if you're using disk brakes in the back, I hear you have to loosen the brake calipers before removing the wheel.
