Like me buying bike related stuff is any sort of news, but I had to get myself a new single speed/fixie/beater frameset because my old whips both have broken forks (riding a bike with a broken fork is no good). I got some quotes for a new fork, but then stumbled upon a Vuelta single speed frameset (frame/fork/seatpost) on Nashbar for very reasonable $69.99 price. I kind of had to pull the trigger on that one. Should have held off though because there's further -15% off on Monday for Presidents Day sale. Oh well, such is online bike geek shopper's life...plowing through the snow from one "could have had it cheaper" to another "oh darn, they sell it for 5% less in Attila Bike Shop in Ulaanbaatar" (shout out to the reader in Mongolia! I'll write more about MB triathlon come summer).
But it's long weekend and heading to Canadian hinterlands to hopefully ski/snowshoe tons. Keep an eye on this space for EPIC!!11! reports.
