The steed got new shoes!

By Nat on October 9th, 2010

My ride is ready for the mud and hills tomorrow morning, but am I?  I made 4 changes/upgrades to the ol’ girl. Can you find them all?  A beer with for you if you can name each of them.  A bonus gold star if you can name the 5th (purely  superficial aesthetic addition)

    Since I like to give beer to y’all anyway, I’ll fill you in on the changes:
    #1. New wheels – Edge 1.45 tubulars w/DT Swiss 240 hubs
    #2. New tires – Dugast Rhinos
    #3. New fork – Alpha Q CX20
    #4. New bar tape – Lizard Skins
    Bonus #5. New orange valve stem caps
    Top secret Bonus #6. New brake cables/housing

    The verdict is in. The bike was absolutely fantastic, I, on the other hand, was not. Happy to have raced and not be sick any more, but ouch. That hurt. Looking forward to a week of actual riding and racing!
