First Ride on the Black Thumper

Today after I got home from my trip to Atlanta I rode my Norco Torrent 7.2 for the first time off road.

I rode around on the bar ditches in my neighborhood.  I have ridden these paths before on my Green Thumper, the Jekyll, but this time it was a lot easier on the 27.5 inch tires.

I changed out the stock pedales and added my Speed Play Frogs.  These pedals and my Nike Nuba shoes have been on  five of my mountain and road bikes since about 1989
