It was 21 degrees at CdB when me and Krazy Carl left from the driveway. I filled up the water bottle with Hot Koolaid to keep it from freezing up like my beard and rear derailleur.

Lotsa beady deer eyes shining back at us in the fields today. Excellent frosty conditions for great traction. Creek crossings quickly turned my 1X8 gearing into a clip-out-and-kick-the-derailleur 4 speed. By the end of the ride my right pedal and gears were totally frozen.
Didn't get the new wheels on yet as I decided to let them cure overnight...I'll throw the new hoops and my new blingy Craigslist horsetraded Thompson stem and post on there today, yo!
