Back to Decorah

Andy and I drove to Decorah Saturday to ride the trails again. I had a blast, but those damn trees kept jumping out in front of me. I think I hit 3 trees total, including the one I hit full force with my shoulder, OUCH.

Gone Fishin'

Noah, Dave, and I went fishing this morning. Dave caught a bunch of bass and a walleye. Noah caught nothing but had fun playing in the sand and water. I caught a small bass, a big crappie, and this 29 inch Northern. Good times.....

One Really Nice Speed

I converted the Karate Monkey back to 1 speed last week. I'm running a 32 x 18 drivetrain, which is perfect for the local trails. I enjoyed a couple nice off-road rides Sunday afternoon and evening. I forgot how much standing is involved in single-speeding. Love my karate Monkey.
