Junior Barnes....oh, Junior Barnes....



Revenge.

I turned some pedals in anger today in the 42x18. Flipped the wheel last week after a flat, from fixed to free-yet the ratio remains the same. Just getting a feel for things, you know. I knew in my mind that the gear is crazy to even think of taking on the long course for the upcoming 10th Annual County Line Jamboree Long Route (among other things?), but now I know in my heart and legs.

As I said before, 39x27 hurt. I've gotta get a different setup. I've gotta get a gear so round... and so perfect... it's got a little name inscribed on it...

In other news, I swapped the unsatisfactory Midge bars for the dreamy Nitto Noodle 48(!)cm bars. Aaaaaaaaaaah, what a relief. Fit's so good, I had to holler for help.

You are keeping close track of my setup/likes/dislikes for future reference, aren't you?

Gears be damned; I glanced at the heading and punched the little arrow in the center of the black box in anticipation. What a frickin disappointment...I thought it said Junior BROWN!
