It's a pretty sweet gig to be having to test out new, wicked-nice carbon wheels! That's what I've gotten to do in my last two MTB rides! After initially breaking in my XC wheelset last weekend with a 50+ mile crushfest on tires that were a bit firm, I got to take them out with proper pressures for some efforts up and down the incredible Miracle Mile trail on the flanks of Gray Butte.

These wheels are so stiff, it actually has really thrown me for a loop! Thankfully I'm getting the hang of them rather quickly, which is a good thing, considering the USA Cycling MTB XC Nationals race is less than 7 days away! Woo hoo!! Keep an eye out for a nice long post about that upcoming adventure! :)
