    And I think this is the last gear purchase for Fat Pursuit. I also have a new 10k portable battery so that will double my range.

    In a sort of geeky move, I coverted my old phone into an iPod. I use Apple Music to download albums through Wi-Fi and then run the phone in eco mode to save battery. I used it for the last 2 weekends ans without recharging the battery is at 60%. That's like 27 hours of use between those 2 rides so we may be talking about 60+ hours of Cannibal Corpse out there...

    I know that trick and it has a high failure rate because of not being able to fully clear the system. That being said, can’t remember the last time I wore one.

    Yeah, blowing water back does not remove all the moisture in tube, unless you keep tube an camelbak under warmth of jacket. I prefer keeping a water bottle under jacket, close to my body heat, I find it's easier to keep from freezing.

    As soon as you cross the Delaware it's nothing but this until you hit CA.

    My co-worker sold his frame and is waiting for the new All-City to ship so...I get to borrow his fork for a bit. I'm 100% that I'll end up rigid as I ride my fork locked out and pumped to the max PSI anyways...
