Some random pix from RTR 08...note the Cottonwood pass pictures and the snowline on the descent...conditions were near perfect that day.
I could see trying it on a SS, but I don't think it'd be worth it to have to fip that thing over all the time.Bocephus Jones II said:He had a flip flop hub. That was taken right before the descent on Dallas Divide which would have been quite a challenge on a true fixed.
That was the 92 mile day, right? Long day. That last 20 miles was a death march for me coming into Crested Butte. I hadn't done a ride over 50 miles all year before that. I talked briefly to Keeping up with Junior who noticed the button also.wasserbox said:I wondered if that button was yours.
I came around you on the descent off Cerro Summit.
Too much fun. That route seemed a little more aggressive this year... or maybe I am just more out of shape.
Yep. I was in my DWC kit and hollered something about the Lounge on the way past. That DH was so much more fun with pavement.Bocephus Jones II said:That was the 92 mile day, right? Long day.

Yeah, my wife developed intestinal problems so dragging her in those last few miles was painfully slow. I always figured intestinal problems was c0de for tour riders that screwed up the timing of their doping plan and wanted to skip the pee test. If that was her situation then she got a bad batch of drugs because they sure didn't help her performance that day.Bocephus Jones II said:...That last 20 miles was a death march...
Pleasure meeting you. Forgot which button I was sporting that day in addtion to my sticker of Tabitha. Either:Bocephus Jones II said:...I talked briefly to Keeping up with Junior who noticed the button also.
Do the Cottonwood pass climb if you can--one of my faves ever. And the descent into BV is amazing also.jupiterrn said:Nice pics BJ. I actually was wondering where you were. Some had said you had posted all that could be posted and had moved to a higher level of being. Others said it was hookers and blow. I can't wait to get out there in a few weeks. Looks great.
That was the last day--we were wearing the official Ride the Rockies '08 jersies. I missed out on getting some matching socks--that would have been cool.gutfiddle said:wow! amazing pix, love the matching argyle jersey's w/ ur man friend.
