I sold my bike on Monday. A lady from Omaha purchased it and I hope she loves it. I had no idea how heartbroken I would be until later that evening. I just burst into tears and sobbed my heart out. I know she's got a better home where she's not in the garage wistfully waiting for a ride. I paid the necessary bill and don't have to worry about that any more.
I did take my Salsa Fargo out for a ride the other day. You take advantage of every warm day now. I took my son with and went to the local trail. Since it had snowed, the trail was wet and muddy. Perfect for testing out my bike. You can see from the picture that it got all nice and muddy. She goes through mud really well so maybe I'm good for not having a fat bike. I actually beat him back to the car for the first time ever on the bike. His Rockhopper slid all over the place so I had quite the advantage. My Fargo is the green bike.
I haven't done any quilting. For some reason I'm just not in the mood. I just stare at the pile of projects and walk away. It seems like too much effort to pull it all out.
For the Mukluk, I'm wondering if it would be best if I just buy the bike in pieces. It would be more expensive, but I could buy parts as I can. The nice part about bikes is that you can upgrade and buy parts at a time completely customizing your bike.
