The Time Is Set and The Die Is Cast

Brad and I have decided to make our assault on Webster's Pass, this coming Saturday.

In addition, Brad sent me these pictures from our ride part-way up the pass, a few weeks ago.
 This is where we turned around, that day, due to time constraints, and the fact that we had just gone "out for a short ride", with no intention or preparation for riding to the top. If you look carefully, you can see the trail continuing up the wall behind us, to the summit. I can't wait to see the view from up there.

 This is Brad's 1988ish Bridgestone MB3. He stripped the paint from the frame, and clear coated it. It looks awesome.

Of course, that day, I was on the ti fatbike. This Saturday, I'll be riding this:

My 1992 Trek 950, recently reconfigured with drop bars. This should be a nice ride, and a bit of a nostalgic adventure, to take the vintage bikes up a trail such as this.

Both of us have been riding long enough to remember when these bikes were the pinnacle of development, and definitely the bikes of choice for this kind of ride. Having ridden through the development of the mountain bike, and become used to suspension forks, bigger tires, disc brakes, etc., it will be a bit of an entertaining chance to compare the abilities of these old bikes, with those of our newer rigs.
