The Slender Fungus will be preparing some kind of ride in October and I will post it here and no where else. I have in mind a hard ride with little fanfare and no room for posers. There will be plenty of food to buy at gas stations and cue sheets will be primitive, maybe even analog.
That is what is brewing in the headquarters. Cookie, Dr. Giggles and I will start preparing for the She Devil known as Trans Iowa. The event will take place on the last weekend of April of next year.
As always, the Slender Fungus will attend, race and support the greatest one day classic offered in America. There is no harder race than this and if you think you are a toughie come on over with your shiny gravel racer bike and partake.
On a gentler subject. I think that fatter cross tires have to come out. I have been toying with the 40mm family and I think maybe because of my largeness they are a better option. I expect more of such mutant tires to come out. My Black Mountain Cycles frame has tons of clearance with the 35s.
If you have any ideas or rides in mind let me know. I need to ride with T.J, Gumby and B.B.
Where the heck are you guys????

|Buy local, and boycott the big box stores. There still is hope. While you are at it also support your Local Bike Shop. |
That's all I had to say tonight.
B.K I really miss you.
