Quick Update

Running shoes were the weapon of choice this week. I might get a ride in this PM, but it is not locked in stone. I need to spin the pedals this week to make up for all the eating I did this weekend and all the eating/drinking/sitting I plan to do next week.

Schedule for next season is taking shape, but slowly. I'm looking for some interesting west coast races; I will try hard to get in Creampuff for sure. Any advice on other 100+ or 12/24 races that are must-do's out here would be welcome.

Oh, I almost forgot; Bike racers + Ugly Sweaters + keg of IPA = a pretty good time.

Still riding the DDX cross bike? How is the ride with the carbon back end? Smooth? I am torn between that bike and light weight steel.

Yes, I'm still riding the DDX. It is VERY smooth. I've never ridden light steel CX bike, but the ride is perhaps even a bit smoother than my light steel mountain bike.

If you are in the Portland area, you are welcome to take it for a test ride.

Also, if you drop me a note at ride.joe.ride (at) I might be able to hook you up with a pretty good price on a new frame.

Anyway, best of luck! Choosing between a DDX and a light steel frame is a nice place to be!
