From Big John in the RIC:
"Went for my fit. Procal broken. Mach 429 ordered."
I was actually thinking he just needed a setback post to accommodate his massive, enlarging hammies. Turns out, like with most things, I didn't know what I was talking about.
But, in a lot of ways, I feel that text message embodies the best kind of BRC customer experience. Admittedly, it's a little sad, as Big John's old whip may have been the last remaining of the fleet of BFR-colored procals that railed Virginia singletrack from D.C. to Danville. Lots of laughs and a few wins on those things. Still, life has a way of getting better and better, especially when it comes to $2500 suspension platforms, lateral rigidity, and generally badass engineering, and eventually the time has simply come.
Congrats, big John. Your life just got a little faster.
And, not to throw Pivot all the love on a beautiful Friday with rally in the forecast, but Trek will be here at the BRC test track in t-minus...well, shoot, looking at the window they're already here.
Sunny, light breeze, chance of rally: 100%.
Seize the weekend.
Gotta get up to get down.
up, up, up.
