Yiorgos on the Hilsen.
The family got together with some friends in Montpelier yesterday. We hung out and chatted and drank hot drinks and the kids played. Then Yiorgos and I headed out rt. 12 to the Wrightsville Reservoir and then down some side roads and a little dirt. Lots of climbing and a big bomber run back down to town. He was on his shiny new Homer Hilsen, a move he has been contemplating for 5 years or so. It is a lovely bike and so far he is liking it. I rode it for a minute and it was nice, but 28 inch inseam (on a 6 foot frame) wouldn't allow much of a ride with the seat where it was. A great time on a nice day.
