on a good note, with a little help from ogara the jabber seemed in top shape as i absolutely hammered on it last night in what turned out to be one of my best rides of the year. a solo effort aimed at pushing the limits of the bike to make sure it was as far from failure as possible. ogara may have gone a little overboard on my rear wheel but for the sake of this race i'll deal with it.
now to try to relax, get some sleep and get ready to spend a few hours ripping legs off in wisconsin.
ogara's modifications to my rear dropout...pretty sure its not going anywhere now.
