Ice and Night

Lake Champlain was a moonscape last night. The cold of last week and the wind of the last few days pushed the ice into cones and mounds of ice on North Beach.

I really like these impressions of my ride captured by the GoPro. Blurry trees, hints of the trail, and what feels like far more speed than I can maanage on the single track in the dark.

And, I’m still in love with the Jones Loop bars – the extra hand positions are great for climbing, and Depot St. is nearby to get a few reps in and get the heart rate up.

    Hi, Mike. I have a question about an older post:

    http://littlecirclesvt.com/2009/05/edeluxe-marks-rack/

    I’m looking to set up my new Edeluxe exactly the same way you have. I’m wondering how long the M6 coupler nut is your’e using. And, several years down the road, how are you liking the set up in general? Any advice?

    Thanks a lot,
    David

    I think it was about 3/4″ long. I got it from McMaster-Carr.

    Worked great. Gave that rack to a friend and he’s using it now in the same configuration on his commuter.
