So, joined a B ride today... realized I'm not quite ready for that yet. I finished the "B transition" route, but it wasn't fun.

I have some work to do to live up to this new bike. I rode Jake today though.

Wow! Excellent machine for reward!

I know what you mean, how much more work I have to do to live up to what this bike is capable of...

I'll admit I'm feeling a little foolish right now, having just built a perfectly capable road bike which I haven't even ridden yet, but it's done, and yes... I'll feel some drive to live up to the bike's potential... at least to some extent. The 1200 may get fenders and see all-weather use as a mileage builder.

Nah, Brother! That N+1 is useful in your case. You found a need for that Trek...

I have a dilemma for XMas, and my Birthday a few weeks later. Wife offered a choice of a new firearm or a Fatbike! Tough choices!

I feel ya there. It's a good think I like wood stocks and blued steel on my guns. Makes it easier to sneak new ones in.

I need something wood, chrome or blues. Everything else is "scary" black...

Well. Except a clear airsoft...

If your family doesn't support your endeavors excommunicate them and find a support group that shares your passion. That's what I did.
