Loving the Single Speed

I have now rode my new Rossin Single Speed to work 6 times. Well new to me, it is a conversion of an old Rossin Road Bike frame and fork, with some new and old parts thrown in. I mentioned in a previous post additional details and that I would include pictures: 2nd best ride ever.

This bike is absolutely life changing. I can't stress enough how much fun the Single Speed is. It is light, looks cool and there is no worry about gears.

I spent some time this weekend working on the brakes, adding new grips etc. For the most part the build is done, however I will be adding or changing some minor parts out as I go.

Here it is:

3 Words - 2020

Here they are, my 3 words for 2020. Funny thing I can't find my 3 words from 2019, I know I had them just didn't blog them. Shouldn't have tossed out that post-it note. Oh well on with the present. 2020 3 Words: Resilience -  Resilience is defined as "   the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness." If  the craziness of 2019 taught me anything it's that I have to be more resilient.  Having endured multiple career setbacks in 2019 it would be easy to just give up, but what fun would that be. 2020 is my year so I'm going to be tough and manage to overcome the difficulties that life throws at me. Plan - I need to make a better effort of creating concrete plans and sticking to them. If the plan doesn't work scrap it and come up with a new one...but plan. For too long I have just shown up and left things to "fate" (more on that for a later post). Stillness - Create more time for meditation, reflection

First bike ride to work of the Year!

What a great day! I rode my bike to work for the first time since Mid November. Wow, I can't belive what I was missing. There is definetly no better way to start your day than taking a 14.8 KM bike ride by the lake. I don't even care that it's raining for the ride home. Doesn't matter. I big shout out to my boy Shawner D. Carl . who has loaned me a brand new Jamis Aurora Elite to ride while he makes me a new single speed mystery machine. Excellent ride, really notice the carbon fork.I was flying, well for first the 5 km's or so and then I started to fade. Time to go put on the Shammy and ride in the rain. Later.
