Now is that just the expectation for this week or is it more of an indefinite answer? I don't have transportation until my brother or a friend is able to go so Thursday is more of a guess.

Whatever man, my $20 Scotts still going strong on my 3rd full season with them. Love it when cheap gear works out this well.

Oh man! Until I got my Airbrakes, I would have agreed with you! But NO comparison! Never fog, never damp out with sweat! Lens swaps r a piece of cake! I love 'em!!!







....of course, cost 10x's as much even on sale! LOL! Worth every penny in my book tho!

It's been a while since I was in that part of town, but IIR, from Redford you can get right on I-75 to go straight up to PK or Holly. Although, if the weather & roads r bad? Take telegraph all the way up. For whatever reason, I-75 usually turns into a REAL shit show in weather. Almost always has multiple accidents F'ing things. Telegraph takes longer, but usually moves pretty well!

If you're looking for "good" quality goggles, yeah! Boyne Mt Sports or REI, even larger Dick's stores have good variety to choose from. If you only need a cheap pair to get you thru? Go to Dick's & spend $20-$30! Boyne store @ woodward & squarelake is HIGH priced cuz of the neighborhood!

If I was going to be around this week, I'd sell you my old pair of Scott cheapies for $15! Used only for my first 1/4 season! (might still b overpriced!)
What kind of Scotts are they? I wouldn't mind snatching a chalet used pair since it'll be a temporary thing!

Hopefully everything returns to normalcy next week, but all bets are off. This will be our daughter's first time in day care so I'm expecting her to get sick all the time now. Anyways, as a general rule weeknights I have a hard time getting out to ride. I do duck out of work for morning or early afternoon laps sometimes, though. Usually Thursdays, but really I can do just about any day of the week if I'm not super busy.

Keep me posted. I know Chomps rides midweek day sessions occasionally and like I said if my schedule permits, I'll join you guys for a few laps at least!
