    This, always. So annoying.

    Today I received a new rear wheel in the mail a couple days earlier than expected. A very sexy looking Velocity Aileron #builtbyscrod -- excited to install it tonight!

    The Mammoth Gran Fondo? I'm doing that too; I did it last year for the first time and it was great... super intense doing that much elevation at that altitude if you're not used to it.
