Managed to get some parts for the Mistress. New Syncros stem and Race Face external BB. Pic's will be posted later when I install the BB and DMR cranks in a couple of days at the shop back home.

Headed out to Joyride 150 in Markham today. It became an alternating type of ride- 20 minutes of Olympic hockey finals then 20 minute intermission riding till the final goal.

There is a whole pile of new features built by my buddy Paul. The master builder of dirt jumps and other fun riding stuff. Will post up pic's later when I get home.

Now just to wait for the snow to melt.

Winter Again

Out for a late afternoon early evening ride. And it starts snowing again. Yay for winter.

So, the plan is that by the end of March I will have the Banshee Paradox in my hands. Sadly though the race I planned to ride it in has been canceled permanently- The Uxbridge Icebreaker. So will have to make a plan to create my own death march ride.

Race Across The Sky

Went and saw Race Across The Sky in my local Cineplex. Kind of fun to see a bike race film on the actual big screen instead of some bar with overpriced beer. Definitely worth getting the DVD copy.

Very motivating to see, especially in the grey February of winter. Gives one motivation to ride.

So it looks like I will slowly be building the GT up to sell it as a complete bike. Will be putting in my buddies shop this week. Well the frame at least. And slowly add more parts as I can.
