Bike is done!

March 10, 2010

As of about 7 pm today my bike is completely finished. I switched out the rear rack for one a bit more heavy duty – an Axiom Oddysee Tubular Rack.  Other additions include front and rear lights, as well as an Italian road bike mirror. I think I’m most proud of the way the additional four front-rack mounted water bottles worked out. My dad and I worked on them for about three days to get them where they’re at now and I think it came out great.

Very excited to get some fully-packed real road riding experience before we leave.

I also am excited to announce our new date of departure is April 5th! Dawson and myself discussed this to great ends, and decided that since Easter Sunday is so close to our original intended leave date of April 1st, that it would be worth it to wait an extra four days to spend the holiday with our families before our journey begins.

I’m quite excited. I hope you are excited to witness our adventures through the pictures and journals we intend to post along the way.

Less than a month away now!!
