Wicked Fast

Today I took Stumpy out for its first ride. I was a little worried about how she and I would mesh, but my fears were unfounded. I changed the steering up a bit by replacing the riser bar with a flat one and dropping the stem, aiming to make her a bit more like my Epic. I also put on Ergon GE1 grips. That was the trick. She climbed like a mountain goat and descended like a peregrine falcon. She felt more solid and stable on the descents, not twitchy like my Epic. I just pointed the wheel where I wanted to go and held on. I swore I used less brake.
Hmmm. What do I race now?
