Bike Love worries about the shoes...definitely tongue in cheek with that post and I'm happy with the trade for the bike! My bike is currently getting some love at Cyclepath - one of the sponsors of the Ironheads so looking forward to picking her up soon.

In other bike news, I've lined up a SERIOUSLY AWESOME deal on some ZIPP race wheels (Thanks Matty!!!) so just need to decide on a wheelset and pull the trigger. I keep flip-flopping between a deep-dish rear and a disc and don't even get me started on how the 808 front option gives me a headache....decisions, decisions. If anyone has any experience with the front 404 vs. 808 would definitely appreciate the input. I haven't had any issues riding the 404 / Disc on my Kestrel so I'm leaning that way but the 808 front throws another option into the mix.

If you have a few minutes, sit back and let Ben and the Blind Boys of Alabama get a bit of your mindspace on this beautiful Saturday...this one touches me everytime.

What's the market like for Zipp 404s? I have a pair just sitting in my basement that I'm thinking about selling. The only have about 200-250 miles on them.

Don't know 'bout the bike, but those were weird looking shoes, man...well, for me anyway:)

I've never ridden an 808 front, although I hear that it's definitely different than a 404 up front. It catches more wind on those gusty days. Probably nothing you can't handle, but definitely something to consider.

I think they're both great wheelsets. It'd be hard to choose between them. Although I'd probably opt for deeper in the back. 606 vs. 808 maybe? Or disc? Hmmm.

Been a while since I've caught up on the Chasing the Athlete Within blog. For starters...way to kick a$$ in the marathon! Secondly...awesome bike and shoe pics you've been posting lately!
