Rode today, the WoodChipper Drop bars work great on the HardTail. I won't go back to Straight bars or Surly angled bars again. The Drops give me 4 distinct hand placement which take a load off of my shoulder problems and give great ergonomics.
Seems my blogging is down when my bicycling is down. Seems happy times are related to 'happy rides' Is what it is. Tomorrow there is supposed to be thunderstorms all day. I hopes to ride anyways. Rain riding has a different feel all to it's self. I look forward to it.
