Gotta go

Spent about an hour after work in the basement of 'my bike shop' trying to figure out how to put everything on 'just right' on my snow bike with new Titec h-bar. Hard to fit both shifters, both brakes and bar mitts, but we ain't done yet. Snow picture is me, temp about 0, riding in "Triple D" race where most of the time I was pushing the bike last winter.
The 2 guys, up ahead, a good 20 years younger then me, I ended up riding/pushingbike with most of the race, I doctor and a lawyer, from Minnesota, they asked me are you that guy with the Blog? goood grief.










Now I must get going and do something. I will give you three guesses what that might be, and the first two guesses don't count. (Buzzzzer sound) Times up.
OK I am headed out to the ride the day, country style, beautiful day.
OK now you, get on that bike. :-)
RideON,
DAve.

Have fun on your ride today! It's almost TOO hot up here.... Ick. I'm just back from my long run, enjoying the endorphins and a post-run brownie. Get your rides in so you can head north to see your grandson. ;-)

Sir David of Dubuque,

Let me know how you like those bars. I am contemplating them for my MukLuk.

Thank you Sire!

Yes, I sure will Bill, there was a discussion on FB about what handle bars to use with the Muluk started by GTed. There was a lot of favor towards these. Did you hear of your MukLek is on schedule?

I like the handle bar set up.

Been using those H-barz on the winter bikes for a couple of years now and just moved them to the 9:Zero:7. I think you'll like them, especially since you can easily fit them with ATV handlebar mitts from Farm and Fleet.

Thank you Michael, I never thought about ATV mitts, will be checking them out.
