I forgot to note that my willingness to blind you and others saved me $125! The black, silver, and (nearly as gaudy IMO) metallic blue are all full price, but the unloved fluoro is going begging at multiple retailers.

Gave my ride a trip to the day spa. It's all sparkly clean with a freshly lubed drive train. Of course it'll be all dusty by the end of tomorrow. :(

It's ski week at my kids' school so I decided to take the week off. Because Mrs. UnF is working, she thought it prudent to get childcare all week as well which leaves me plenty of time to recreate. Since we can't really go skiing due to COVID limitations, I decided I would mountain bike all week instead.

Today I spent the afternoon thrashing a fun and fast trail. Trail was almost empty (mostly retired dudes, which is awesome). I was worried that our recent heavy rains would make the trails turn to mush but fortunately there were just a few puddles and they were easily avoided. I'm excited to go on another two or three rides this week if I can!

Just reporting in to say that my Forks have finally arrived rebuilt and ready for spring.

Thanks to Mark.
If you have an older bike and want some forks to order?
Hit him up. for a reasonable deal.

Not a paid promo. just a satisfied customer who needed 26 inch fork,130mm travel, disk brakes,
1 1/8 threadless, with a 9mm QR axle. Which is hard to find off the shelf. so he made some.

That's asking a lot from a bike!
