Saddle- Not Sore

Just a quick update. A couple posts back I mentioned I swapped saddle on my bikes taking a Brooks C-15 off my, rather upright, Surly Bridge Club, replacing that saddle with a wider C-17, and putting the C-15 on my road bike.

I ❤️ These Boots (Solomon Shelter)

Living in Wisconsin you need a good set or three of boots. I had two sets: a heavy duty, super insulated pair for the depths of winter and a pair of of un-insulated LL Bean “duck” boots for slush/mud season. Fall of 2019 I decided I needed to up my game to a pair ofContinue reading “I ❤️ These Boots (Solomon Shelter)”
