Went to bed at 9:30 last night, woke up early amped to ride. As i was cleaning my bike this morning i noticed a 1/4in. long crack in the fork where the carbon crown and leg are bonded together. It's been about 6 months since i've had to warranty something from Trek, so i guess i'm due again, anyway, it would be fine through todays ride. Rolled out and hooked up with the group out of Pewaukee to the Doc ride. Thought i'd be trashed after yesterdays effort but i felt good. The pace picked up through the first series of hills, some fast riders were sitting in and the guys who were showing off weren't going to go anywhere. Out of about 30 riders only 5-7 of us consistently pulled once it settled. Nothing crazy, just kept the pace steady and fast. After the ride i stopped at Wheel to show them my fork. Fortunately, they had a carbon fork lying around i could use in the meantime, so we switched it out and off i went.
On the way home i still felt pretty good. I'd planned on making a century out of it with T-bone, but he flaked out today. Figured i'd cut while i was ahead, two good effort 70 mile days already made this a good weekend, and i'll have enough energy to enjoy Mike's bonfire tonight out in B.F.E.
