Orange Mécanique gets an update

Orange Mécanique, my Macho Man disc just got its cassette updated, thanks for the good work of Steve at Switchback Cyclery.

Orange Mécanique new cassette

It's a Shimano Deore XT 10sp, 11-36 (was 12-28) to give me that extra help in the climbs. Yes, my next big trip will be in a mountainous country, more to come on that.

We also backordered Surly Knard 700x41c 120tpi... because fat.

With these tweaks, Orange Mécanique becomes more off road, which hopefully will make a bigger part of my training this "off" season.
