It's during this time of year when I really appreciate the 12-8 shift at the shop. Normally I prefer the day shift (I guess I still do) but with daylight dwindling it's nice to get out in the morning. Plus I'm a morning person so the motivation is high unlike the afternoon. Yesterday was a 12-8 day. After the kids were dropped off at school I was out rolling on the Seven Axiom SL a bit past 8. Southern wind meant good 'ol county road 8.
I recently installed some Onyx hubs on this bike. I have them on my Fat Bike (Salsa Beargrease) and love them. I didn't think I'd appreciate the instant engagement the hubs have, boy was I wrong. They are amazing! Plus the ceramic bearings, low drag, and silence made this my new favorite wheel set! Despite how much I ride I'm usually not one to notice changes like this. But I noticed right away, it was like the first time using a mountain bike with front and rear thru axles.
It also felt good to get out on the road bike. It's been a lot of mountain biking lately. A bit over 3 hours then it was off to work.
Short day today at work. Hope to get out but if it's raining hard I may pull myself to the basement for some roller action. Riding is riding!
